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.

 

 

 

 

Statement from the Bars and Pubs thread.
 

“The country's aviation regulator has banned international flights since April.

"There is no proposal to change the flight suspension and travellers can return with repatriation flights and special flights," he said.”

How about people with retirement visas? Don’t the want these back to curb local economy  ? Some of them have houses, apartments etc.  it will be a very very slow process. Let’s move to 2021 quickly

Yes, I think so.

But alternative quarantine which means a hotel.

Yea at your expense. So basically if you go for 2 weeks you cannot visit your family. Only thailand can offer in one hand and take away in the other

Typical Thai business model.

Create a problem and ask for money to get it solved.

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.

I guess that will allow all the overseas auto trade figures to attend the auto show in July !

And keeping in mind the 200 a day is counting for the whole   group of 6 ,not for each group separate ….!

Probably depending of importance decided by the embassy staff....

a long waiting list could be the case depending of your importance for Thai gov. interest in you ….(?)

The CAAT don't make the rules, they follow them.  There is supposed to be a Cabinet meeting today and hopefully that will provide more (much needed) clarification.
