There is no mention of reopening land borders...

No, but nor does it say whether the flight ban is lifted and that incoming flights can land.  It doesn't specifically refer to any type of entry, and there many people stranded across the border in Laos and other neighbouring countries, who meet the conditions referred to in the 6 groups (including my wife and son!).

 

Hopefully, things will be clarified further tomorrow.

We go from one confusing and tentatively situation to the next.

When will we be able to go, endless story.

No, at the moment a lease isn't enough to allow you back.

Yes the insurance and medical certificate are still required for all the returnees.

If you want more details i recomand you to ask to the Thai consulate or the Thai 

embassy of your country of origin, they are in charge of the process and they can inform you

We don't know. I would say probably yes. But anyway about $50-$100 per month, so not a big deal for most expats.

The embassies and consulates are not in charge, the ministry of foreign affairs is.

Your chance of getting any answer out of embassies and consulates is very slim at the moment.

The final details and processes are still being finalized by the ministry.

A few incoming flights are landing with authorized passengers, for the most part Thai expats returning home.

 

Next month, there will be more.

 

I seriously doubt that they will allow people to enter by land because that would complicate a lot the quarantine management.

 

Imagine having to isolate and transport people arriving through remote land borders in the middle of nowhere...

A plastic surgery is your entry ticket to Thailand.

 

If you already have children you can't visit them, but if you don't have children but want children, you can get in?

 

This is like a Monty Python show.

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.

This is the confusing part of the announcement, if they're doing a 14 day quarantine then why would their health need constant monitoring and only be allowed to travel by private car, presumably during their quarantine, because nobody cares what they do after the quarantine period.

 

I have a feeling this is not the 14 day quarantine we've seen already, it's something new and they're being allowed to move around.

 

It sounds to me like they're going to allow small tour groups in, maybe for a stay of less than 14 days.......without a 14 day quarantine.

 

I read it again - this is the group they're talking about :

 

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.

 

If there's any COVID these are the people who will be responsible for it.

All related to group 6.

Short time business travellers are not subject to strict 14-day quarantine. But they have to stay in an ASQ hotel too. Can only leave for meetings, conferences etc. by private car.
