SO WHAT documentation IS required??

Last I saw is:

 

1) Mor Chana app installed

2) Written reason to travel

3) Written approval from a local official of your travel plans

 

On top of that, you will be subject to temperature tests on the way out of the province.

I did see a checkpoint the other night in Baan Amphur, across from Phoenix GC road. 

Was there this morning - I was going the other way. But not in place when I returned about an hour or 2 ago.

I don't understand why there as hardly a provincial border and majority of traffic will be local?

Well not if coming from Rayong or further... but  those residing in the Pattaya area should  be permitted to go shopping without any special documentation. This needs to be made clear.

I'm coming from Rayong, Makro in Pattaya has a few more items than Rayong and the road construction in Rayong is bad.

From what I understand, it's just inter-provencial travel.  I've been all over Chonburi and not had any problems.  But I did see a checkpoint the other night in Baan Amphur, across from Phoenix GC road.  Where it always is for NYE and Songkran.

 

There is a check point on Sukhumvit right almost opposite Banglamung (Chonburi) police station, so anyone who enters will have to pass that check point.

 

The Chonburi border is about 60 km north of that border.

I'm wondering about the checkpoints as well. Supposedly we are allowed to travel within the province, but if they've got checkpoints set up at the police station in Bang Lamung, that means we can't even get to Laem Chabang (without it being some kind of essential or emergency reason) despite that being well within the "provincial" boundaries.

Chon Buri is quite large so it would be nice to know where we can, or can't, go.

It would seem to be more sensible if they were on main highways at provincial borders but I hear rumours they are near cities (perhaps closer to the base of operations of the police manning them). That would seem silly as they cannot know who intends to cross into another province and who is going to Tesco.

Hi there, has anyone got any ideas when the Chonburi checkpoints will  cease as I need to do a 90 days report in 6 weeks time. I know I should've reported a change of address but I was only going to where I am now for a short stay but her indoors change the plans without notice, which has left me in limbo. I may check out a permission to travel document at the local office. By the way where I am is not to far from the Bangkok - Pattaya motorway, 75 kms from Pattaya. Thanks,
