So, basically anyone wishing to vacation in Thailand must be first be approved by a Royal Thai Embassy and have evidence of COVID-19 test proving they are COVID-free within 72 hours before departing.

I can see a million arrivals in October, two million in November and three in December... at least...    Seriously, this is an opportunity that is going to be used by two groups of foreigner

I had to laugh at Trust.  Thai locals have to learn to trust foreigners again?  This is laughable. It's the other way around.

My question is...  Since Covid Insurance is required as an additional entrance item...Why is the Insurance not offered by Thailand as part of the Visa cost or Landing fee.  This idea the Government is pushing makes no sense.  How many Families are going to want to go through this Expensive process.  Does the country  (Thailand) plan on just marketing this to Sex Tourists.  Are there private in room  nurses offered also

They muted ages ago about adding an insurance charge at the airport and should think about it again!! That way they benefit from the premiums as well!!. Ooohhh requires a thought process!! 5555😷😷😷😷

Is it possible PM may be shot before that happens?

Just to make it more spectacular, add: Out of a cannon with no safety net.

46 consonants - of which two are erroneously listed as 'not used' but which in reality can be.

All down to the inventor of the Thai typewriter Edwin McFarland/Hunter who is responsible for deliberately not including the two on the keyboard.

its different for old farts--

covid insurance 350$ a month

business class from US 3000$

specialty hotel at least 100$ a night

and if government tells me where to stay I will stay home.


Well, I’m 62 and the Covid insurance was $350 a year. 
 

I flew CX from LAX premium economy for ~$1,600. Coach was ~$1,000 and business would have been over $4,000 one way.

 

Stay home

Vice Governor Phichet explained that tourists wanting to come to Phuket must be approved by a Royal Thai Embassy and have evidence of COVID-19 test proving they are COVID-free within 72 hours before departing. Alternatively, they must present a ‘Fit to Fly’ or other documents proving they are free of infection.

How could any document other than a Covid test show that someone is free from infection? There seems to be a continuing misunderstanding among Thai officials that a "Fit to Fly" certificate means anything other than that you don't look like you're going to collapse or drop dead on the plane.
