Tears and heartbreak as flight ban keeps farang-Thai families apart

Is not the same all over the world, for example, in Philippines (not that far huh?) they allow foreign spouses to get reunited to their family living there... So calm down, watch your mouth, and verify your facts before writing again plain bs.

Ok, not the whole world, just civilized countries. And Thailand. Don't tell me to watch my mouth or you might get what I really think about whingers.

You've failed to recongise the varying situations many are in.

 

Those who work on ships, rigs, or working a rotation in other industries - some on a 4weeks on weeks off schedule etc - this work is common.

 

Its impossible to take your family with you when working in such industries.

 

Your dumbed down over simplification only serves to highlight a myopic perspective, your closing comments just highlight what a tooling troll you are.

If it was so important to be with family they wouldn't be in those jobs in the first place.

 

I used to do that work and I never had a family nor would I have wanted one because I knew one month I would be in the Seadrill office in Rio in Brazil and next month I would be up in Sakhalin island  with Gazprom in minus thirty without windchill. 

 

I have known many fifo workers, mostly rig pigs and I have known many that gave up the work for their families. 

 

Many wives or girlfriends, mostly those based in UK and Aus laid down the law, them or the job...

 

Again, we have to deal with the choices we make and sometimes you have to put family first if that is what is really important to you.

truth be told....if it means there is less of a chance of spreading the virus then keep them all out for as long as needed even if it means they cant see their families. I care more about general pop safety than about lonely farang. They can communicate online and wire money. Be patient and dont be selfish. Dont risk others health so u can be happy. Stay away for now!! Thanks :))))

So what about the THOUSANDS of selfish "Easterners" spreading death and disease - are you forgetting where this disease originated?

They're not agitating to get into Thailand at the moment, and no, you cant go there either.

The Job overseas (rotational work) is ALL about putting family first - that's why we sacrifice ourselves and work away so we can support our family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well I am comfortable in staying away for a while longer to protect my family

 

There is big danger in allowing people in from high risk countries, however cannot stop Thai nationals returning but can put process in place to keep tight control and limit arrivals

 

Foreigners from high risk, currently cross contaminating countries however, as already highlighted early in the thread by geriatrickid, are a real danger due their arrogant indifference to rules and regulations

 

So to the Thai government I say, as a family man outside Thailand, do what you will to keep my family safe, I expect no special treatment, and when the Thai government and Thai people are comfortable and ready to facilitate my return, then hopefully I will arrive to see my family healthy and well.

 

Because as a family man there is no way I would subject, family, relatives and friends to any unnecessary danger - the best, most efficient, 100% effective way to achieve this is to stay away for now!!

What do you expect from an incompetent military givernment? To have people's needs at heart?? With badmouth Anoutin taking every chance to bash foreigners in his endless hate?? They hate us so much that they even let their own Thai people suffer just to keep us, (according Anoutin) not showering dirty farangs away. They don't care about ripped apart families, they don't care about mamas and children struggeling to survive without their dads. But I know, soon they will open the borders. Unfortunately only for Chinese. To flood in and buy Thailand. Farangs will still have to wait until they can prove that they take showers regularly...

Fanciful to say the least and overly emotional.

Half your life is spent away from your family.

 

How long can you support yourself standing only on one leg?

Yes, what about us that already had this? I am 99% certain to have had it, as I was with a group of people and many got sick. One of the sick was more sick than everyone else and was confirmed Covid positive (he lived too).

All of the professionals I've seen discuss this matter state that not enough is known about Covid 19 to say what degree of immunity is gained by being previously infected or how long any such immunity will last. There are also some claims that people have been infected more than once.

 

Therefore at the moment, I doubt any form of concession will be granted to anyone withe antibodies to the disease.

I only realised yesterday that Australians have to apply for permission to leave Australia now. 

I thought it was the level 4 advisory, but you have to apply for a exemption to leave. And it must be shown at airport departure. 

My defacto wife of 7 years is stuck in the village after her mother died mid March. 

I had been in Australia when the fires were on and was heading back to Thailand and my partner when Thai airways cancelled the flights. 

March 25th.

I'm stuck here. 

She is in her village alone. 

Hopefully Thai airways will be operating still as I have a credit for the flight on hold. 

Hopefully the Thailand government will see sense in flights between low risk countries first. 

And hopefully from Australia the permission to leave Australia will be granted. 

I hadn't noticed until yesterday, but while exiting Australia as an Australian requires an exemption for which one must apply, one of the small group that don't need an exemption are Australians normally not resident in Australia (it's at the bottom of the page) https://covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au/leaving-australia

Fair points are made, but they ignore the 14 day quarantine.

 

I self isolated / quarantined myself for 14 days after arriving in the UK (Early April - from Dubai on a repatriation flight, no travel in to Thailand). Then moved into my sister's house.

 

Upon entering Thailand we also have to quarantine for 14 days.
