The Aussie government limits incoming overseas flights to no more than 50 people per plane, and a maximum of 450 each day coming from ALL COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD:

Please get your facts correct. The Sidney airport/NSW limit is not the Australian limit 

 

It was introduced to stop the cheap travelers who don’t want to pay for their quarantine accommodation for all travelling via Sidney.

YES! If they are above the quota they can't fly. Read the article in my post.

You should actually read it yourself.

 

current limits are only for 2 states

 

  • NSW — 50 people per flight, with no more than 450 passengers allowed each day
  • WA — 525 people per week, around 75 people a day

If you are from Melbourne/Victoria, there's no way you're getting home for the next 4-6 weeks via any flights. Victoria is in lockdown.

Which has nothing to do with the notion Australians are banned from re-entering Australia.

12 flights tomorrow at a max of 50 passengers per flight means 600 people, which is over the 450 people per day limit. There are going to be a number of cancelled flights I'd presume. The Aussie government has been telling people to "Contact your airline about potential changes or cancellations to your flight."

The 450/day is Sydney alone.

Many folk fly into Brisbane. 

Melbourne being cut out does add pressure.

Qatar Airways is currently wanting five times the 'normal' (£2500 rather than £500), fare London-Bangkok-London, and they're only showing flights available for the next week or two (I think).

Eva Air might be a better bet, in the last few years they've become my regular (direct) airline for that flight, hoping to book with them in January.

 

Emirates via Dubai  London BKK London return ticket  635 GBP

 

Flights are normal pricing nowadays on most airlines.

Ah ok, as I said, QA wanted stupid money about 10 days ago, but like at the start of the pandemic, these things are probably changing daily.

(I flew out of Thailand 11 days early on March 27th, for that reason).

My facts ARE straight. I was replying to the Sydney Airport link mentioned by that poster. And learn to spell Sydney. It's Sydney, not Sidney.

And if they are, it's probably their own doing. They should have travelled befits the restrictions. 

Absolutely correct,  the idiots chose to bee helpless.  Kick them out for good.  They only clog up the system and contribute problems for all of us good expats following th rules.

It's not always as simple as that. I'm a British citizen, but I haven't lived there for more than 16 years. Instead, I have been resident in another country for work. I have no home in the UK, so repatriation would render me homeless. My country of residence/work has not yet opened its borders to non-citizens. So, when I arrived in Thailand on a 30 day stamp in March, I had expected to leave before April. Now, I am at a loss as to what to do if the Thai immigration doesn't extend the amnesty or offer extensions that can be paid for.

Exactly, I am American waiting to get back to my residence Taiwan. Haven't really lived in US for 22 years. It would be a nightmare scenario for me to get back. My flight there on March 18 was two hours after the border closed. I can't incorporate and get processed for a Taiwanese ARC while out of the country so am waiting for some kind of opening to the country. The new loosening of restrictions there only applies to people doing corporate work with Taiwanese companies. I went to TECO to apply for a permit to enter, but they told me I have to wait. The lack of empathy by many in this forum to the real problems of many people who are not trying to take advantage of the system (I had given up my flat and was to leave Thailand permanently on March 29) is astounding. The first day I can get to Taiwan I am out of here.

I tried to do my 90 day check in last week in Jomtien and was told to go away so so much for do it early to avoid the rush

At Immigration you should wear proper clothing. 

Made my 90 day in Jomtien and other 20 people there, no problem at all.

Was at CW in bkk yesterday helping a friend who had just moved up from Phuket and had never been before, plus he bought coffee and lunch so win for me. I decided to do my 90 day report while there and was told by the nice IO at the counter that it was good I did it before the 13th as this and other services are being moved to impact arena here after that. That doesn’t sound good for extending the amnesty but at least they are planning ahead for large crowds. no I didn’t ask about which other services as I don’t need to extend until May of next year. 

Sounds like great news to me. Sounds like they are letting people apply for in country extensions.
