Didn't Vietnam stop issuing long term visas unless you're married to a vietnamese woman?

No idea. After the fourth visit I decided it was the home of corruption, impossible traffic and two facedness so I havent been back.

Speak for yourself.  I'm looking at flights right now.

I have already had 3 flight to Saigon pushed back "cancelled".

My Vietnamese friend of 6yr, with zero English cannot understand why even with flights BKK-Saigon available, quarantine on either leg is a deal breaker. 

Just emails " flight can"

Any advice how to convey that is very welcome. Thinking I can take weekend Saigon maybe September, without quarantine.

But now that gov'ts have gotten used to the power that people are allowing them to wield, the narrative seems to have changed.  Now they seem to want endless lock-downs and restrictions because....reasons.  

You mean the lockdown that hasn't been especially restrictive compared to most countries and that has been eased in stages over the last eight weeks and will be completely ended by July 1st?  That one right?

So how is it an endless lockdown again?

Thank you PM you are doing great job, while most effected countries are starting to running Economies and Tourism you are going to opposite direction, what actually does mean countries which have Epidemic under control is it 25 cases per 100.000 or maybe 1000 infected...i mean who will go for holidays under those conditions? You are just waiting for China to declare end of Epidemic and then you will open borders lets them rush in... In those you call special conditions, i really dont believe Chinese tourist groups will go to Quarantine for 14 days nobody will.

Rather than just throw stuff out there back it up. 

Corruption....where and how worse that bordering countries.

Impossible traffic.,...compare Saigon to bkk. Surely that's a joke.

"Facedness" have zero idea what you mean.

It's important to point out that lock-downs and travel restrictions etc. were NEVER intended to prevent deaths.  They were ONLY intended to flatten the curve.  Put another way, they only change the date on the death certificates.

 

But now that gov'ts have gotten used to the power that people are allowing them to wield, the narrative seems to have changed.  Now they seem to want endless lock-downs and restrictions because....reasons.  You rarely hear them talk about flattening the curve as the reason anymore because the statistics show that's already happened.

For sure but the worry is that if the lockdown finishes too quickly then there could be a second wave which could be devastating. I don't think that the UK Government is using this as a power trip after all they are bankrupting themselves (ourselves) by paying 80% of peoples salary. It's in their (our) interest to get people back to work as soon as possible

Why would there be a second wave in the UK. The virus exploded and peaked before the lockdown. Most people that would have been affected would have already. Same in Thailand. Researchers are now looking why populations are affected differently. Why is there higher level of immunity in Germany than UK. Why has SE Asia hardly been affected.

Duck and dive with some gambling, now finished due to covid-19 and affiliate marketing, that is getting tough due to social media not like adverts for certain niches with covid-19 going on.

As devastating as the "first" wave, or just media hype?

But we know who is affected by this virus and it's not the majority of the populations. If you are in thoses groups, then take care, if not, time to party on.
