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 ?

Google isn’t your friend?  You expect someone to make the effort for you if you have insufficient interest to find out for yourself?

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

I  did google it but came up empty searching for countries that banned entry to its own citizens. Luckily I asked the question because it seems Trinidaad and Tobego did actually do that... but very few others.

Capped daily entry numbers is hardly banning citizens from returning home.

Loads of flights into Sydney from around the world.  Check if you like.

It's about to be capped at 450/day.

Also think international having no flights to Melbourne with the 6 week lockdown stating today in Melbourne. Becoming a hard joint to return to.

With only 50 passengers allowed on a plane max and only 450 passengers per day max allowed to get out the plane in Sydney as per the Aussie government's rules? All due to all quarantine hotels being full to the hilt.

 

Ok, a total of 7 flights from around the world landing in Sydney sometime today. 50 passengers on each plane times 7 flights that gives 350 passengers. Just below the 450 max per day limit.

 

None of those flights are coming from Thailand either.

 

Tomorrow flights include one from Singapore.

 

You could easily transit at Changi airport.  Bangkok to Singapore has flights.

 

Changi is now opening up to transit passengers.

Half a million in 7 months When everywhere was closed boy you must eat well “Prawns and Champers for breakfast every morning “ I assume !

That's about 23,000+ per month per person, seeing as most posters on here need around 65,000 per month to live on, I would hardly say it's Prawns and Champers.

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."

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.

The point is.

 

NOBODY is trapped INSIDE Thailand.  Anyone can leave in the days ahead, to pretty much anywhere in the world.

 

Dubai is open for all transit connections to the world.

 

Yes people are trapped OUTSIDE of Thailand wanting to get in, but nobody is in a position where they cannot leave.  You can go to their airport today and book a flight out of Thailand, loads of people are flying out of Thailand every day now.

Australia is also limiting the return of Australia residents to reduce demand on the states providing compulsory quarantine in hotels. There will be an announcement on numbers after the National cabinet meeting on Friday 10th July.

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.
