It's the people that DID burn their bridges that get all upset when people have options to move home and they have none.

 

Instead of being happy for you, they get all peed off because they can't move anywhere.

 

I moved back to the USA, never gave much of a thought towards medical when I lived in Thailand, but now I am getting older, I realize medical care is of huge importance. 

 

 

 

Never burned any bridges can move my company anywhere i want. If tomorrow i decide i want to be back in my country i can be there. (if there were flights). I think its stupid to burn bridges at home. You always need to keep your options open. Medical care is always of importance but if you have money you can afford medical insurance.

 

Ever since i moved here 15 years ago i always had medical insurance. Just gives peace of mind.

Wait until you get seriously ill and realise the real worth of your Thai medical insurance.

Im not saying its bad to leave Thailand or to change your mind, that is normal. What I am questioning is the 180 turn degree that many people display. Liking it loving it and then all of a sudden nothing is good everything is bad and everyone should realize the same they do and leave this country. 

 

It is almost as if there is a hatred that they can't stay, did not make it or something like that.

 

Again i can see people slowly changing their mind. I don't see this as the best country. Just as a place i like staying now a place I enjoy.

You mean the same assumptions you made calling everyone a failure who wishes to leave Thailand? 

 

And if you can please share this amazing insurance policy and cost. I would love to apply for it.

You misunderstand I don't call the people a failure. I call their trying to stay here a failure. The moment that happens people seem to turn really bitter.

If only I could find somewhere to go?

No flights anywhere that I can buy a ticket without a 90% chance the flight will be cancelled and no refund given.

 

I've got a pal trying to return to Belgium, 4 flights he's booked have been cancelled so far, and no ticket refund.

I've been seriously ill twice with no medical insurance.

3x if you include smashing my face on the road after an RTA.

Biggest bill in the government hospital so far around 3,500bht.

so why do you make your kids live in a 3rd world country and not where you are ?

They were born there, they have very good jobs there, they make good money there, their choice! They are not children! They have university degrees from my country! Any other questions?

Many people have booked flights and flown to Europe during the corona

Some people have giving their opinions why they have left Thailand and some have their personal reason for it. I think that's ok if they want to share their personal experience with us. No need to blame them. Every life is different.

Especially in this time it can be very frustrating if you want to stay further but you run out of options and they tell you to leave. 

 

I know a guy he is on a married multiply 1 Year entry Non-O Visa and because his wife isn't in Thailand they told him to leave at the immigration. Of course it can be very frustrating. And he is getting angry. If you invest here, maybe bought a house and planned your life.

Of course you can blame every Visa Holder for not getting the best Visa they offered. Or ask him why his wife isn't here?

But who could predict that this will happen one day?    

 

I personal think that the immigration law with Border runs or getting a new Visa outside of Thailand when you already in Thailand is in Covid Times a little bit "out of date". I think it will not be possible in the near future to solve it. Nothing is coming back to normal soon so we have to find a way to adapt because I don't see that the immigration law is changing soon?.
