Cool story, but does not answer my question.

 

The article says people have not been able to go home due to closed home borders, which countries have not allowed its citizens to return ?

...i.e. Austria, if you do not come out of an "approved" country, and Thailand is not on that list.

Trinidad & Tobago: "On 21 March, National Security Minister Stuart Young announced the closure of all borders to everyone (including nationals & non nationals) effective midnight on Sunday 22 March. "

These people who have become stranded are stranded by choice. They will sit on there butts until the 31rst and then show up at immigration demanding another extension. Time for Thailand to tell them get a flight out, you have had 2 months to arange your transport out. By the way if you are in Chiang Mai and have a car you can do your 90 day report at the drive up window, did mine yesterday in and out but no burger

No countries deny entry to its own citizens even if you don't have a passport, they can't. 

Not true.

Agreed. None that I know of.  Foreigners have not been prevented from returning to their native countries.

They like to be awkward and don't want foreigners hanging around for too long without a good reason. Remember there use to have double and triple entry tourist visas, now it's single entry or the METV which has too many conditions attached.

People were abusing the tourist visas to live here.

 

Can't really blame them for saying "enough is enough".

Are you an immigration officer ? Just kidding. You seem to want all other foreigners to leave Thailand so you can have it all to yourself. The poster you replied to works abroad and has a family here - a life. 

Exactly. Some, from other posts here on Thaivisa, don't want to associate with other foreigners and turn away when you see them. Having something in common, you'd think there might be room for compassion. Guess not.

NZ only allows Nz citizens in at present. The problem now is that quarantine facilities are overloaded and NZ has now had to restrict numbers and flights in order to cope with the flood of people trying to escape the madness in many overseas countries. Legally they have to accept Nz citizens but the amount fleeing from overseas was not imagined to be so great . Now NZ has to slow the pace or be overwhelmed.  Note that the only new cases in NZ are coming in from citizens returning home and all have been contained in quarantine, hence travel bubbles are off the cards and probably why Thailand has put bubbles off.

Thanks Keith.

You have read the news back home the same as.

So I will until hopefully everything improves.

That is false. Austrian citizens have a legal "right of return" under international agreements.
