Medical tourists will be tested three times for Covid-19: before departing for Thailand, on arrival, and before returning home.

This will be a mess, people will not know nor allow for the the lab time for the tests;going to be a lot of people turned away at airports, <deleted>-off, angry people, people who couldn't make all the requirements in the 72 hour window

Bangkok post said as follows:

 

"After the 14-day period, tours can be arranged for them to visit anywhere in Thailand," he said.

 

hope this is true... 

 

Just called the embassy they told me to talk to a hospital and checkout their packages and then to contact the embassy again and they could arrange it for me. He couldn't tell me anything that would happen after the 2 weeks quarantine simply because Thailand did not tell the embassies anything yet.

Does anybody have a list of the 60+ hospitals that are a part of this?

I think pretty much all of the larger "internationall" hospitals are part of it, and they can arrange everything.

 

Incidentally for Cambodians entry can be overland per oen hospital I spoke with recently using just 1 checkpoint where an arrangement is in place.

Ten days ago they said 30,000 medical tourists had registered with them, now it's only 1,700?

1700, this is 0,00425 % of tourist arrivals 2019. What a rebound to normal levels. (sarcasm)

Why they even bother with it. Hard to understand.

Pressure from the international hospital lobby, no doubt. The likes of Bumrungrad must have been really hurting.

The medical tourism and wellness programme offers two types of quarantine depending on treatment: Hospital Quarantine for patients receiving short treatments within their 14-day quarantine and Alternative Hospital Quarantine for longer procedures such as infertility treatment (Gamete Intra-Fallopian Transfer or GIFT).

I have a note from a major BKK hospital that I need to follow up ("short treatment") on my recent total hip replacement surgery. I don't need to be in the hospital for 14 days and would be perfectly willing to do normal ASQ... but ASQ sounds like it will only be available for people receiving long-term hospital services.

Guess I need to contact my local Thai Embassy for further muddyfication.
