These crazy ideas about letting people in are never going to work.I own a condo in Thailand and to get in we have to send 3 million baht to our bank account are they crazy plus quarantine in a Hotel for 14 days plus take. Out health insurance at hugely inflated prices. They should just forget about it until next year or until we have a vaccine.Why do we need 3 million in a Thai bank madness.

Do yourself a favour and scrap the STV now then. Stop embarrassing yourself thailand... we all know the real reason it’s been delayed it’s because hardly anyone has signed up!

 

 

thousands of enquiries about the STV doesn’t mean you’ve had overwhelming interest... I bet half of those enquiries were somewhere along the lines off “ which countries are eligible?” Not real interest.

 

cowboys.

"But but but - then it's time for Loy Krathon and Yee Ping festivals.  If the foreigners area allowed in they put all Thai tourists in dangers."

Yeah, if they can cancelled the flight because of a vegetarian food fair, then what are they gonna do at the last minute regarding a very large, important, national holiday?  Just saying...

 

It's not a 'Vegetarian Food Fair' but a very important 9-day religious festival, especially for the Thai-Chinese. It's a massive event in Phuket and very worthwhile to see. You ain't seen nuffin' like it.

You would think that 'The Nation' journalist would know better than to attach a photo of a Taiwanese airliner to an article about a flight from Guangzhou to Phuket.    

So you think the journalist who wrote the article also selects the accompanying pictures?

 

Ever heard of a layout or graphics department?

this scheme is just a token gesture to keep the small minority from the thai tourism industry who have been asking the thai government to open up off their backs, and by saying this they can now turn round to the tourism industry and say "well we tried" as its set up to fail. 100% no cases is impossible to guarantee.

…it’s a safe bet these VIPs won’t have to fill out massive volumes of nonsensical visa paperwork, jump through an endless maze of bureaucratic obstacles, or suffer the full range of quarantine imprisonment.

 

That’s...of course...if they actually show up...

 

 

They are like you say visitors and there are no tourists it's all <deleted>.

If infected persons were found among STV tourists, the operation will not proceed to the second phase, or even the third phase that would allow tourists to travel freely, if they are proved to be free from infection.

 

This is nonsense, if all tourists are Covid free, why are you requiring the quarantine and the multiple tests?  In my opinion, if tourists are found to have Covid, it would indiquate their protocol during this pandemic is the right one...  Why are they asking for insurance if they will just scrap the whole thing if a tourist have Covid?  The government should have a protocol on how to handle tourist with Covid right now, do not wait until you have one... penalizing everyone for 1 tourist is such a knee jerk reaction.

 

"Do not worry we will handle the situation if a tourist is found to have covid during quarantine, it will not disrupt the future of the STV project"  is a much better message than "We will stop everything if someone coughs, so don't plan coming here"

555 if I remember correctly, in the past it was published that average Chinese spend 5,000 baht during their short stay in Thailand, if it still be correct then 120 Chinese x 5,000 baht = 600,000 baht.... that supposely will save Phuket's tourism 555

These are not normal tourists, 

They are CP group executives. 

They possibly have been vaccinated as well. They are not coming to spend 5000 bht. 

They are on a mission much bigger than 5K BHT
