According to the latest Cabinet meeting summary from today, persons who have Covid will be denied entry to Thailand. See section 3 here: https://www.thaigov.go.th/news/contents/details/35295

Would an airline even accept a Covid-19 positive passenger for transportation in the cabin? I highly doubt it.

Infected after your test.  Or more likely on the airplane.  Since Thais don't need to be tested before flying, its quite common someone onboard would be infected.

shirley they'll be allowed to use the expensive thai covid insurance with 3 million baht cover they were required to purchase as part of the visa application process!

maybe they can use that for their medical evacuation flight back home.

Of course they will, you will go for the Thai treatment (whatever that is) for as long as they deem necessary before they kick your ass out of the country.

Which makes life a lot easier.

 

Insurance that covers the refusal/isolation and return flight (and covers getting COVID in Thailand) is all that's needed.

 

Forget the rest (including Thai purchased insurance).

 

Another 3 months for the Thai government to work it out for themselves?

If PCR test 72 hours before fly shows negative result but than get tested on the 3rd day with positive in survanapoom airport. How could that happen ???  Your test kit must be craizy. How can you test somebody positive in just short time. What kind of test kit magic do you have ?? From other planet ??

You are not allowed to board a repatriation flight to Thailand if you test covid positive, so this law was already basically in place.

They approved this new regulation today, so they need it for some reason.

 

It may be so they can continue the current testing and quarantine on arrival process once the emergency decree is lifted.

The test 3 days before departure could be negative, but when you finally arrive in Thailand you could test positive (it could even just be a false positive).

Until today it was clear what would happen in such a case, you were allowed to enter Thailand and would be sent to a hospital until you test negative.

With this latest announcement it's not clear what what will happen, what i mentioned in the OP were just two possible outcomes.

 

Obviously they can't stamp the visitor in on your arrival, because this would be in violation of the immigration act.

The common sense solution would be to send the person to a hospital, and give the entry stamp once the test is negative. But this would mean sending and treating a person in a hospital who is not officially in Thailand, this might cause other problems.

Shame they didn't remove leprosy from the list of prohibited illnesses

Yes I'm not really sure what it achieves. It might maybe be to do with this 9 month tourist visa thing. But yes, if you're already stamped in and then you test positive, then what? 

 

and if they implement this for work permit extensions, are they seriously going to deny someone the right to continue working and deport them if they test positive?

 

Who knows. Just more covid madness in 2020
