Entry to Thailand during July/August

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I have a friend who lives in Estonia (Estonian passport) who wants to come to Thailand. Under the current restrictions she won't be able to enter with a tourist visa. She's interested perhaps in making a working visa or another visa (money is not an issue). Would that be a possibility? Any link to some site or thread she could look into? 

 

Thank you.

Not currently possible and most likely for quite some time.

Difficult at best - and would need (for starters) an invitation letter from a Thai company.  Covid-Free test, quarantine 2 wks upon entry (you pay) and 100K Insurance also.  That's not all - might be impossible - just giving you a heads-up on the key elements.

Does not matter if the UK believes Thailands statistics.

We still will not get back to Thailand.

The door has to be open both ways, otherwise it's pointless.

Thank you for your reply. She knows that by now and yet she is determined to find a way. Let's see how it goes.

If she is absolutely determined, and has serious money to spend, she should contact a well connected legal firm in Bangkok. Around US$10,000 would probably be sufficient.

"The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 situation a pandemic on March 11, 2020, so most insurance companies consider it a known and foreseen event. So most travel insurance companies will not cover most claims due to the coronavirus."

Can you currently be issued a student visa or a work visa? Would it be impossible to either start a company or start studying something like Thai language currently? Assuming money is not an issue.

Any you'd recommend? I have a friend desperate to get back into Thailand and he'd probably be willing to pay that if the terms were right. Hell *I* might be willing to pay that if the terms are right... what exact visa would they put you on? It's too much for a single entry, but if it guaranteed multiple entries and perhaps longer stays than 30 days then it would be doable.
