Notification on Conditions for International Flight Permit to Thailand issued June 29, 2020

Recommended Posts

This notification laid the conditions for international flights relating to the Covid 19 situation.

 

In here they outlined details for who will be permitted to travel to Thailand.

 

I need help finding out if "Non-emigrant O visa" holders are included in this group:

"Non-Thai nationals who hold a valid certificate of residence, or permission to take up residence in the Kingdom"

 

I am retired, both my wife and I are non-Thai nationals and have both been issued an O visa by the Immigration office. We are living in a Thai company owned residence and has a Yellow Book.

 

I will be leaving Thailand shortly and plan to come back to my residence after 4 months.

So my question is, will we (under the current June 29th notice) be permitted reentry (provided we comply with the Covid screening requirements)?

 

Secondly,

Will we be allowed into Thailand without a Thai health insurance. 

Immigration has not demanded that we have a Thai health insurance under the O visa.

 

Thanks in advance.

I need to travel outside of Thailand also but I am unable to if I wish to return even with a non o because my health insurance cover is only 20k not 100k plus I wouldn’t want to pay to quarantine in a hotel when I have a family home in Thailand to goto.

If you have any questions go to the source IMMIGRATION The rules today are the rules that will be in play when you return, so far.

Hi, I have been coming and going in and out of Thailand without any health insurance for the last two years. Also after health insurance was mandated for other non-immigrant visa holders.

The Immigration office is not asking for either when renewing the one year O visa. They do demand a bankbook update showing more than THB 800k for 90 day reporting and visa renewal.

I have an "O non-immigrant" Visa issued by the Immigration office.

He wads referring to specific temporary rules currently in place regarding entry during this time of COVIUD restrictions. Thhis currently requires at least 100k in insurance as one of several conditiosn for receiving the "Certific ate of Entry" now needed to get in.

 

Nothing to do with people already here.

 

The only group of people in country for whom insurance has been mandated are those with O-A visa, as of late last year.

You won't be allowed in. You don't meet the requirements unless you're married to a Thai or have Thai kids. And if you were allowed in, there's no way (at the moment) you can skip the 14 days quarantine in a hotel in BKK. That will cost you from ฿45,000 and up.

You're confusing the mandatory health insurance for O-A Visa holders with the (at the moment) required $100,000 travel insurance. 

You won't be allowed in if you're not married to a Thai or have Thai kids. Just having a Non-immigrant O based on marriage won't help.
