Private quarantine facilities at own cost offered to returning foreigners

If I already have:

— a Non-Imm ‘B’ Thai visa

— a Thai work permit

— a domestic air ticket to go to Udon

    Thani from Bangkok

— a place of residence in Nong Khai

— A health certificate that that
   indicates A negative covid-test
   result
 

Then, will I be allowed to travel onward from Bangkok, to get to my apartment in Nong Khai — before starting my self-quarantine there?  — or will I be required to be quarantined in Bangkok immediately after my international arrival?  
 

If the latter, would there be any alternative to paying 5,000 baht per night for quarantining?  
 

I am ticketed to return to Thailand on Tuesday, 7 July, and I’m still seeking a clear answer to my question.

I would greatly appreciate any info you may have.  Thanks.

I recomand you to contact the Thai consulate or embassy in your actual country

they are the only one able to give you the correct advice

By THE NATION

Foreigners returning to Thailand from abroad can choose special services at their own expense during their 14 days of quarantine on arrival.

I was wondering if the Nation was just taking the <deleted> with their article?

 

I have kids in Thailand that need schooling and I am going to have to waste all their school fees slumming it in one of these opulent gazebos surrounded by water lilies doing the 14 days  quarantine having coming back from some far flung part of the world earning a pittance to pay for said school fees.

 

Couldn't they just strap a ankle bracelet on us instead as an option as we pass immigration? It seems to function well for Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned already but the likely cost is upwards of 45,000 baht for a falang for quarantine

"Private quarantine facilities at own cost offered to returning foreigners". ...but only ones with invitation letters from Thai embassies in their own country.

 

What is the logic there? Wouldn't this policy work to every foreigner? I mean 14 days mandatory quarantine. What is the logic that it only applies to people who get a letter from the embassy?

 

And aren't the airports closed for international travel?

 

And why do these stories always mention that the foreigners have to get the letter from the Thai embassy in their own country before travelling. Can't the Thai authorities or the authors of these stories imagine a world where foreigners are not in their own country?

Few flights have always been allowed

like the cargo ones, military and medical planes

also the special flights for international repatriation

This is what should have been in place from the beginning with single country bans for irresponsible nations, eg, USA, who dont have proper measures to monitor or control their citizens.

So many people impacted by such a short-sighted, narrow-minded decision to close the borders when the economy is heavily reliant on tourism. People arent going to come flooding to Thailand. A lot of people are afraid to travel. Except the idiots in the USA I guess but you can just ban flights from badly performing nations.

Won't matter if your USA or UK as I suspect they will be banned IMO BUT your right zero logic just hoops added because..well they can!

When the government started the quarantine program for Thais I read there were three persons to a room. This may have changed.

I could have picked many other posts apart from yours. 

Some points.....Thailand cannot handle mass quarantine. They currently hardly cope with returning nationals. They then select the smallest group  foreigners. Work permit and PR. Then impose huge hurdles. 

It's so they can manage it. Folk that have families here and retired guys may consider it. I would not.

Also many countries looking for "hub".

Japan just announced hub with AU, NZ. VIETNAM and one other. This will be plan forward. Hopefully Thai with bordering countries. 

BTW the rules are far more strict in my country AU.

This policy is in effect starting now. That's what required of you if you must make an attempt to enter Thailand this month - meaning being truly desperate even if they belong to the chosen groups.

It's obvious that there will be a very limited number of those who will succeed.

July might be a completely different story considering all the news about the real re-opening to foreigners.

What do you mean. My post was regarding next stage. Post work permit holders and PR.

After that who knows. If it's non o married/ retire then you would need to accept dire consequences. Re quarantine  etc

I would not.
