Exactly, but the longstanding truth that I noticed within the first year of living here (and that has only really gotten worse, and that most people refuse to believe) is that Thailand is for Thai peo

You seriously think that's what I meant? read again...   -----   Of course, every Thai should be permitted home - that is a basic human right. As is the right for a family to be to

Tough but understandable move by the government. The Thais knew what they were dealing with and responded appropriately. Yes, some foreigners would have respected the  self isolation requirements

How does allowing non-Thai people married to a local with a family to return and quarantine just like the Thais are (and pay for it themselves) increasing the risk of spreading anything? 

 

They would be in quarantine. 

It doesn't

Um, no, because I still can not leave here even to go to work (where I can not take my family) until I can actually come back to them. 

 

So plenty of reasons to moan. And please spare us all the "if you don't like it then leave" sh*t. Its old, stale, and boring especially in the middle of a global pandemic. 

So you or your family are NOT locked out of Thailand, whats ruffling you feathers then ?

QUARANTINE !!!...   

 

 

So you assume every person entering is already infected?

 

Further, are you aware of temperature etc., checks and if any doubt there's professional testing? 

Great - kick-start the world back into operation - there is a test.

 

Is there? why isn't it at the airport then?

 

Its no good having a Covid-19 test in the UK then getting on a plane and catching it.

That said, how long after exposure would it take for us to register as positive on the test?

If we have had Covid-19, many of us may without knowing, are we immune? does immunity prevent us from being carriers?

 

As you wrote, so 'I assume everyone entering is already infected' (I don't - but thats what quarantine is for) its a 'schrodingers cat' approach, everyone both has the virus and doesn't until its proven by either test or by quarantine.

Imagine the outrage if Thailand refused entry to its own people, Iam sure the idea was tabled though and got voted down !!

Didn't nine Thais arrive at Bkk last week, all with high fever

Because I am not working and currently living on the savings I was stacking up for the move. 

 

And the reason I am not working is the very subject of this thread. I can't leave at this point because if I do, then I will not be allowed back. 

So the decision to not work is yours then.

 

Short term pain for long term gain... think of your family and go back to work, or not if moving them back to your home country is not a priority.

Easy for you to say. You're probably at home in Thailand. You would feel the same as us if had been stranded abroad for months away from your home and family. We're not tourist. Thailand is our home. And we're willing to do the 2 week quarantine and have already have more than enough insurance. 

Iam actually, missus is out by the pool cooking my breakfast on the BBQ.

 

life is great, was upset I could not go home to my Uncles funeral though.

What you are basically saying is it is som nom na for somebody trying to do their best and support their family in hard times.

and the we have some in this thread  who is able to go to work but refuses to do so because they will be inconvenienced in respect to returning to Thailand.... the mind boggles.
