Can I return if I travel abroad now?

Recommended Posts

I am on a retirement visa, I have a valid reentry permit, If I leave Thailand now for a few weeks, will be able to enter the kingdom ?

The airlines are allowing you to book round-trip itineraries with the intention of allowing you to return on any schedule you like. The Thai government on the other hand...

 

...'eventually' you should be able to enter the kingdom. Your round-trip ticket should be good for 2-year cancelled flight reschedule, so the answer is *yes.

 

 

*the actual answer is no or 'maybe', pending further flight boarding and immigration requirements.

Let's see what announcements come in the next few days before attacking the poster.

 

On Thai PBS today they are talking about next month allowing ' documented foreigners ' in alongside those with Thai wives, spouses and children.

 

Until we know exactly what they mean by ' documented foreigners ' nobody knows. A person with a retirement extension and pink card or yellow housebook could be considered a ' documented foreigner ' , as yet we await clarification.

This is a separate section to the people with work permits and permanent residents.

Furthermore,  today is the first time Hun Sen has spoken himself of the need for land borders to open between Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia  and THAILAND.

He has been backed up by big hitters in Bangkok that own all the luxury super malls, Siam Paragon etc stressing  the need to get cross border access and trade moving again. Prayut and co, will certainly take note of these peoples opinions.

I saw the news today, was hoping maybe someone knows more.

Thanks

A waiting game unfortunately, but at least things seem to be gathering pace now.

 

The reality of the economic situation is now being seen in the monthly figures coming in.

I think it doesn't depend only on documented foreigners but also which country you are from.

 

Thailand can't risk opening their borders to all countries with documented foreigners if the daily virus cases there is still high.

 

From what I see, Thailand will selectively choose a travel bubble and only certain people from that travel bubble. So there are two conditions and not one.

 

 

I won't ' get into it '  with any posters, nor will I second guess like many are doing. I think people are second guessing through frustration rather than anything else.

 

I will await clarification from the government announcement.

 

However, if a person is whatever nationality and is a designated documented foreigner with permission to reside in Thailand, (therefore, not their definition of as tourist), and also subject to the health insurance guarantee of $100K, and the quarantine rules and regulations, I can't see how it would make much difference!

 

Also, if land borders are to open up sooner rather than later, then surely it will depend on where you have been for the last few months and not your country of passport?

Retirees did not make the list of additional groups of foreigners allowed to return that was published today.

 

So, as of now, nobody knows when they can return - it certainly isn't imminent though.

Lets hope nobody books then this is from today, it may mean no quarantine in the UK on return but if they are not letting them in they would not need it anyway

That is certainly for entry to the UK.

The should not be able make a reservation for a flight to here. The IATA site still states this.
