“The Stranded”: Highlighting the plight of expats unable to return to Thailand. #5 “From retirement dream to pariah”   File photo   Today we continue our series of articles ab

It seems most are tired of these sob stories...it's a global pandemic, the first in 100 years. When it has passed, all will return to normal.

Oh, please; to compare Thailand’s lockdown with the Khmer Rouge is so disgusting it defies sensible comment, as does “if I’d anticipated the lockdown I would’ve given away my condo and possessions”...

We have highlighted those with families, property and money, retirees, teachers and charity workers. Through little fault of their own they found themselves locked out of Thailand and stranded abroad.

Prayut has other things on his mind with his step-children behaving badly...

So crazy these people actually live here and support the country and would account for far more arrivals than the 39 Chinese tourists that TAT is crowing about who probably are on Zero Dollar Tours anyway. 300 tourists a month won't have much fun as most of the better restaurants have closed and because of lack of business they are very likely to be price gauged by the businesses that are open. When they eventually return to their home countries they doubtless won't have favourable views of Thailand.

And it's no different in many countries that do..."Malaysia My Second Home" program participants haven't been able to enter the country since the start of Malaysia's border closure. 

Fake news

And visa-versa...and all the Chinese who have bought property in America and have money in banks there...they've not been able to get into the country since February. The people writing these stories seem to think they're being personally targeted by the Thai authorities...maybe they need to focus on getting on with life and stop whining. 

Exactly so. It's a temporary and worldwide issue.

One of the requirements for return is a "TEMPQ."  What is that?

It is the entry process for elite visas. Same as everyone else but much slower.
