Current travel restrictions between provinces


Recommended Posts

I'm in Chiang Mai but usually go south to Nakorn Sri Thammarat for a few weeks when the air gets awful, coming soon, but have heard that for now they're requiring a 14 day quarantine when returning from the southern provinces. 

 

Wondering if anyone knows where I can check on current restrictions for travel between provinces? I assume it's changing every day with the new outbreak ...

 

Thanks,

Is there a 14 day quarantine for arrivals in Chiang Mai.  Might be a nice find if there was a list of requirements for traveling outside of Bangkok.

TAT website has a daily update with provincial restrictions. A recent update gave details of what domestic airlines were reducing or suspending flights. If the situation deteriorates further, one may find oneself stuck down south and either forbidden to travel home or all the airlines grounded.

 

However, the overriding message is stay at home.

I have looked at the TAT website, but it seems that Air Asia has not canceled flights to certain locations and will not be allowing cancelations right now to Chiang Mai.

The key words are "right now". It's very dynamic and AirAsia are more 'dynamic' than most with flights being pulled same day. The same goes for Bangkok Airways but they tend to give better advance notice. It's always best to check DIRECT with the airlines website to confirm what's available.

 

Better still, stay away from airports and stay home!

I did the train two years ago, and thinking that would probably be the best choice this time - but I bought a pretty good air purifier yesterday in case it turns out that it's obviously a bad idea to go at all - and it's kinda looking like it could go that way. O well.
Thanks!

Yes, there was an announcement in CM a few days ago that anyone arriving from a red zone province would need to home quarantine for 14 days.

 

However, I just spoke to a German friend who left Pattaya this morning to Don Mueang, then to CM.

 

He did not have any official permission travel documents and took a taxi.  He said there were no checkpoints on the highway. When he arrived at the airport,  he filled out a one page health check form and boarded.

When he arrived at CM airport, it was a similar form.

He said no one told him to quarantine and no additional health checks were conducted.

 

So, I am not sure if these checkpoints are only at certain times or what.  But he got through without any hassle whatsoever.

You are free to fly CM -> NST as neither is red zone at present. Problem will arise if NST turns red while you are there then you would be looking at 14 day quarantine in CM on return.

 

Thats the rules as of today.

If nothing happens, all will be OK. But if there's an outbreak and he gets blamed for bringing virus there, it will be a very different story.

As your friends account and others that have posted on here, it looks like situation normal for travelling, same as the 1st wave.

I see a whole lot of people seeking validation for being unable to follow the simple advice to "stay at home". Is it a comprehension thing or is it being selfish?

Not having a comprehension issue, but trying to garner some facts so that I can force Air Asia into creating a credit on my account for the flights scheduled in 2 weeks.  If there is a quarantine it would assist me with them, but as of now they still have the flights scheduled and will not allow a cancelation of the flight. Yes, I am staying put....
