Another 6 groups of foreigners to enter Thailand in July

Six more groups of foreigners will be allowed to enter Thailand in July, the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced on Monday (June 29).

 

Authorities had already permitted experts and foreigners with Thai work permits to enter Thailand from July 1.

 

The six additional groups proposed by the Foreign Affairs Ministry to enter Thailand from next month are:

 

1. Foreign spouses and children of work permit holders.

 

2. Foreigners with residency rights in Thailand.

 

3. Foreigners married to Thais.

 

4. Foreigners and their carers seeking medical treatment in Thailand (except for Covid-19).

 

5. International students and their guardians.

 

6. Short-stay business travellers and guests of the government from Japan, South Korea, Singapore, China and Hong Kong – as per special arrangements made with these countries.

 

The special arrangement will initially allow entry to 200 foreigners per day. That number will increase when more alternative state quarantine (ASQ) rooms are made available. The special arrangement will allow entry to groups of no more than 10 people for a short period. Visitors will be tested for Covid-19 prior to travel and on arrival in Thailand, where they will be monitored constantly by health and security officials. They must submit their Thailand itinerary in advance and will only be allowed to travel by private car.

 

Foreigners work permit (WP3) and/or BOI certificate holders should contact their local Royal Thai Embassy or consulate for a permit to travel to Thailand. The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) will arrange seats aboard repatriation flights for eligible passengers.

 

Further detail will be released soon.

The daily confusion.

They only now expand alternative state quarantine. I heard hotel owners are desperate because nobody can tell them how to become a quarantine hotel.

Yes, I think so.

But alternative quarantine which means a hotel.

"Foreigners with work permits, residency and families in Thailand will also be able to enter the country, but will be subject to a 14-day quarantine. "

Your guess is as good as mine.I'm hoping for a miracle to happen and it seems likely a 14day quarantine is on the cards.

What is meant by point 2 regarding those with residency rights?

 

Is this different to Permanent residents?

No, group number 6 does not have to quarantine. They have a special arrangement which was explained in the article.

 

 

Also, from the Pattaya News:
Some of the early details released include the fact that these groups, other than 6, will need to have a Covid-19 test before and after arrival in Thailand, submit to a fourteen day quarantine at their expense, have proper health insurance and other requirements.

How is the "200 a day" calculated?  Is this per Embassy?  Surely one flight could have 200+ returnees!  How will people returning through a land border be counted?
