If this insurance cover only Covid 19 and no other treatments then the premiums are insanely high. It is robbery...outrageous...

ok; i revise my early estimate of 5 visitors to 4

Agree, this is nothing but extortion    another greedy nail in the coffin of Thai tourism

Still not 100% clear.  If an 'alien' re-enters Thailand to continue their one year extension do they need this paper and to pay for this insurance?

it doesn't matter one year extension,  A-O visa or any visa .....  if you enter Thailand by border or airport you will need to show COVID cover.

once you leave ...  you need COVID COVER on entry ......     geeeze ...   it's an insurance as required and i expect every country soon.

This is what I thought you would say.  You think it's obvious........

Take a look at this from today's Thaiger.

'Here’s an example of some of the costs for packages that vary from 30 days to 1 year. The premiums range from 1,600-4,800 Baht for 30 days of coverage; from 2,880-8,640 Baht for 60 days; from 3,840 – 12,160 Baht for 90 days; from 7,680 – 23,040 Baht for 120 days, and from 14,400 – 43,200 Baht for one year.'

 

Are you as relaxed about what is required now?

well  ....    it's required upon entry.   so either get it or risk entry denial.

I am sorry, but that's what is required.

The OIC-endorsed COVID-19 insurance packages vary from 30 days to one year. The premium ranges from 1,600-4,800 Baht for 30 days of coverage; from 2,880-8,640 Baht for 60 days; from 3,840 – 12,160 Baht for 90 days; from 7,680 – 23,040 Baht for 120 days, and from 14,400 – 43,200 Baht for one year.

At leasr ~$40/m, for a very specific risk, cf Safetywing which is about the same for much broader coverage. Ripoff.
