  1. You can have as many "Swab Hubs" as you want but if the number of laboratories is the same then it will be longer than just a "one night stay in ASQ"? I wonder what the reaction will be when people are told "sorry you pay for one more night because lab is busy"?? This sounds like overkill because if new arrivals are : 1) Double vaccinated with approved vaccines 2) Have a negative RT-PCR test 72 hours before departure then conducting another PCR test upon arrival probably would not indicate a new infection which might have been caught while traveling. The best indicator of a possible infe
  2. Thailand Pass, a COE with a different name? Still need approval from an embassy or consulate still need to submit or upload documents, still need Covid 19 Insurance and still need 72 predeparture Covid 19 PCR test. Really not much to get excited about unless one can truly arrive after Nov 1 and only spend one night in an ASQ Hotel waiting for the PCR Test result. Otherwise it's "the same old song and dance".
  3. If everyone arriving after Nov 1 is required to have a PCR test then there are only two options: 1) Limit the number of arrival per day 2) Increase laboratory testing capabilities dramatically(this would cost more money) or 3) The one day wait in a quasi-ASQ hotel will could turn into 1,2,3 or 4 days waiting the lab result. I believe when one arrives at BKK after Nov 1 they will be told the wait for the PCR Test result could take more than 1 day.
  4. Roche test kits can be purchased at Boots, Watsons and at many other pharmacie.
  5. Never had a problem with the 5 ATK tests I did with the Roche Kit(now 1199 for a box 5 test kits). I did a self test the day before a PCR test and both came back “not detected”. My plan is to self test on a somewhat regular basis and a day before a PCR test. For me the ATK tests have been a good screening tool.
  6. Cmmedclinic.com I have used them twice this year. Swab at 0900 and lab result emailed by 1500. COVID-19 PCR TESTING COSTING 2800 THAI BAHT WITH SAMEDAY RESULTS AVAILABLE AT OUR CHIANG MAI CLINIC. SINCE MAY 2020 CM MEDICLINIC HAS BEEN PROVIDING CONVENIENT FAST TRACK GOVERNMENT ACCREDITED COVID-19 SCREENING WITH A DRIVE-UP, RIDE-UP OR WALK-UP, SWAB TESTING PROGRAM IN OUR CAR PARKING AREA OUTSIDE THE FRONT OF OUR MEDICAL CLINIC.

  7. Aspen Suites Bangkok. I have kept the message. By refusing to pay 20 Baht for a 500 ML bottle of water during my quarantine stay is offensive or defamatory then they contact me.
  8. Before making a firm decisions have you contacted this agency yes?: I believe they control the entry of pets into the Kingdom? I know of a couple who brought over two dogs to Thailand 6 months ago and the dogs were quarantined at BKK while they completed their 14 day quarantine at a hotel. I am not sure if an ASQ allows quarantine guests to have pets. I did two stints in quarantine this year and it would difficult for any hotel to allow pets. Contact Information: > Animal Quarantine Station at Suvarnnabhumi Airport’s Contact Information: For those who t
  9. Turgid, Pacific Cross offers a combined policy(400K IPD, 40K OPD and $100,000 Covid 19 coverages). I have such a policy. The annual premium is not cheap.
  10. Slippery Slope? Now double vaxed. Next double vaxed with a booster. Next triple vaxed with a booster. Next triple vaxed with a double boost. A global Covid 19 Vaccination standard would help to avoid this muddled mess we have now. But a globally accepted anything requires cooperation and that is now in very short supply.
  11. “Does a US CDC vaccination card qualify as proof of vaccination?” I will find out in about 24 hours at BKK. It should be because the Thai Consulate accepted it.
  12. Tropposurfer, yeah I looked at 50,000 to 60,000 ASQ hotels but I had spent almost 45,000 on my first ASQ experience earlier this and I just got tired of spending that for so little. This time I was disappointed again. Hopefully this will be my last time experiencing the joys of BKK quarantine.
  13. I believe in general either show proof of being fully vaccinated or a Covid 19 test upon arrival at your domestic destination.
  14. Only thing needed is the actual RT-PCR test result report which indicates "Not Detected". Absolutely ensure the report is within the 72 hour departure flight time window. Do not be confused by the word "certificate". The Fit to Fly Certificate is no longer required. I flew back to BKK from LAX 10 days ago with a COE issued by the LA Consulate. The only document the Airline(ANA) really scrutinized was the Health Insurance Policy documents. The key term they were focusing in on was "3.5 Million Coverage for Covid 19". I did not have an issue because I had an endorsement letter from Pacific
  15. Yes, double pricing and gouging occur in LOS. But when one was in a quarantine hotel "you can't just walk away". If this had been a normal hotel stay then I would have options. Next time you are in a quarantine hotel and feel like you are being gouged, try and walk away before the end of your quarantine period.
