Currently all visitors to Thailand need insurance. Nobody knows if they will ever scrap this, or it will stay even after Covid (if we should ever get rid of Covid)

So, according to this hypothesis, those persons who are on extensions and are, by age or financial circumstances etc, unable to obtain insurance are now trapped in Thailand until the is no more covid 19. Anywhere. If one leaves, one can't get back!

 

That doesn't, personally bother me too much, I'm not planning on going anywhere, but what a situation to be in. I wonder what this will mean for those who use non imm O multi entries at Savannakhet and HCMC.

Sorry if I hijack this thread, but a couple of suggestions of insurance companies, who do i.e. ONLY/separate Covid insurancies would be great

Very simple solution. They last entered on a non o. They can now apply for 12 month extension based on marriage. Yes it requires 400k in a bank for 2 months. Hardly Mt Everest.

They are one group that has option.

Worth exploring whether annual travel insurance will suffice, usually has £10-20m cover incl Covid medical. travelsupermarket.com or any of those comparison sites. One example £65 for annual cover, only 60 days continuous but usually that is hidden in the small print. Or alternatively buy travel insurance for a longer period, 9 months circ £600.

 

The Thai insurance offered must be the worst insurance in the world

Yes I know. I've been doing it for the last 6 years!

 

What I'm referring to are those of us already on extensions who wish to leave temporarily on a re-entry stamp. Are they gong to have to obtain an insurance policy to re-enter? I certainly hope not!

Insurance is only reuired on the retirement extension of a Non-Imm-O-A Permission of Stay, this was imposed from Oct 2019. A person entering Thailand during these Covid times will require a certificate of entry and retirement extensions (re-entry permits) do not currently qualify. Insurance is required currently.

The $100,000 insurance would be required for him to enter the country with a certificate of entry but he does not qualify to apply.

Non o retirement, there is no channel at the moment to enter Thailand for that visa.

 

He would need an insurance cover of 100000 usd covid insurance if he was allowed back atm.

So it is up to the "stamp" in the passport.. He is actually married to a thailady and I haven´t seen anywhere that people married to a  thailady ALSO need to hve an extension of stay based on MARRIAGE....  Are you sure the stamp matters.......?????

If you were able to come back in the near future, you can get an insurance from back home. But it has to cover covid-19 treatment 100% and be valid the period you're staying in Thailand. Don't confuse this insurance with the mandatory health insurance for people on O-A Visas/extensions. Totally different requirements.
