Yeah and pigs will fly as long as the stupid rules are kept in place to allow travel into Thailand. I am 73 and $100,000 of health insurance would cost 124,000 baht plus 30,000 baht minimum for 2 week

Wow this person must be a fortune teller with that prediction. But then again with that statement his credibility is questionable. I guess he must be after a job at the TAT.

Army will be voted out next election. But the army Senate made up of crooks will remain 

 

Doubt it. 

 

One other country have vested interests in Thailand. They are placing in puppet leaders across the continent, removing any that are against them (see Malaysia). It's a modern day empire. 

 

Welcome to the United States of China

- treatment ? They are looking for one against HIV since 40 years...

 

 

They have very effective treatment for HIV. You can practically live a full normal life now with the medication they give. It did take 15 years though.

It's so funny that anybody could even think that the covid crisis will end soon...

 

 

Not that funny.

Why not open up for those who wish to quarantine for 2 weeks? Dont understand this. Limit space of hotels?  With so many hotels now empty, is it just corruption? I am sure many hotels be delighted to open up for business for quarantine because at least there is revenue.

It is not going to end just like that, the virus will stay here fo decades, maybe forever. Wonder what exit strategy Thailand has when they realize the world around them will not become covid free? Stay closed for years?

What do you expect?

What would happen if you have a heart attack and have to go into a hospital. A few days, an operation or two, and that cost real money. Do you have that money ready? And if not, who should pay it? The Thai tax payers?

 

It's easy to understand that you want to come here. But look at it from the Thai point of view. What is the advantage for Thailand to let you in without insurance and maybe without quarantine?

Suppose from his point of view, he would have been doing this on travel insurance, same many people. (Hopefully).

They cannot get travel insurance without travel being allowed, and many companies have excluded the pandemic cover now.

I was living there.

Until stranded abroad. 

Have retirement visa Non O. But still no sign of getting back to Thailand. 

I accept the insurance and take it on the chin, I'm 68.

ASQ is obviously not too appealing to anyone. 

Even Thai people.

My pal died of AIDs last summer (in a UK specialist hospital).

His treatment didn't seem all that effective to him (or me, or his kids).

While some countries are starting to open up I predict that as newer cheaper treatments and faster more reliable tests are developed it will accelerate and those countries who are not opening or have draconian requirements will realize the tourist revenue that they have lost.  Then and only then Will countries like Thailand lower their bar for tourists.  The problem is, it could be too late and they may never recover to the tourist levels they once enjoyed.  I mean Thailand is certainly not the great bargain it was twenty years ago anyhow.  I don’t think the Thai government has realized the economic disaster that will soon envelope their country and it is sure to only worsen especially if they don’t radically change their long range strategic plan.  If they have one.

December 2020 is when they start to realise the economy is in serious trouble.   By February Thai's will be asking how do you spell 'recession' in English!

At 73 years old you and everyone else should have already had that amount insurance as minimum for many years. It's foreigners like you that make it difficult for people like me to get back to our homes in Thailand. That would cost you 10 times more in most other countries. I understand why they don't want people like you back. Hell...i don't either.

Who elected you as god???
