Can't see any of those teachers affording the $100k insurance, period testing and paying for their quarantines as teachers usually not that flush with cash to say the least...

So how did these 165 Filipino teachers get approved?.....And why are 3,000 farang teachers waiting?.......I would speculate most Filipino teachers would be less able to jump through all the hoops and

I guess the Covid insurance $100,000 requirement has gone with all the other crazy schemes.???

Agree, and you forget to mention the price of the plane ticket in business class

basically the only places available for foreigners, since all the economy places

are ''reserved'' to thai people on the rare flights

'And 100k insurance is a joke. 

The $100,000 cover is very small BUT the hard part is it has to cover Covid19. I am in the Philippines now and an insurance agent in Manila could not find any company here that would do that. Presumably the cover had to apply for the whole year as well.

I would have thought that the only farang teachers coming are for high salary international schools, I can't imagine any going to that expense and hoop jumping for a 35k gov. school job... No doubt some sort of deal over the quarantine hotel,(read camping in a football stadium) for the Filipinos who will, I'm sure be most of the numbers...  

I would assume most had applied and accepted positions here in Jan/Feb, and then got stuck when the borders closed. No, most would not be applying for government school jobs outside of the country.
