"Samui Bubble" latest plan to rescue foreign tourism on devastated holiday island

Recommended Posts

wasn't this addressed yesterday?/  Unless there is a cynical twist 24hrs later......

 

Deputy government spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul said on Tuesday (September 15) that the Cabinet has agreed to allow foreigners to live in Thailand for up to nine months per trip, provided they can prove they have spent 14 days in quarantine.

The first visit will allow 90 days of stay, which can then be extended twice totalling nine months.

This measure will start from next month, and up to 1,200 tourists per month will be granted this extended visa.

There are 24 hotels ready to accept foreign tourists and if his plans are passed at the end of this month he thinks that foreign tourism could resume mid-November under the plan. 

about as much chance as Louis Armstrong  being a founding member of the sex pistols

Easier to get pigs flying over the moon than to get a viable plan for Western tourists to want to go through the hurdles to visit Thailand. Dream on Thailand in 1980 was a dream holiday place open 24 hours a day. Now in tourist resorts half the shops, bars and restaurants are closed some probably forever.

I can just see Bangkok Airways allowing that one. Not.

Samui already has non-Bangkok Airways Flights coming in.  All that Bangkok Airways does is charge them a fee for landing at their Airport.  Not a big problem.
