thats weird the other day they said not a single application for visa was received, so how are these 120 coming and with what visa?

Sounds like everyone needing a visa on arrival to enter Thailand next Tuesday could well find themselves stuck in an exceedingly long queue for the VOA counter!

it's not over until the fat lady sings.... meaning until they are physically Here I wouldn't believe anything TAT says, first was Oct 8, then Oct 26 now Oct 20 and as you said, TAT previously indicated that NOT  1 Chinese had applied for the STV. I do think this post/news it's just to distract us from the other news about Thai people manifestations against government going on


But all those scared of their chance at the buffet line .... well for 21 days at least you will be safe.  ..... as they will now be quarantining in Bangkok there will be a restriction at the buffet, under the Bangkok stat of emergency, of only 5 people at a time. Also only one flag waver and four followers per tour group ..... they will require more tour buses, maybe a bit of a traffic jam. Either way, Bangkok may not be the best place for the Chinese to tour in the next month under the state of emergency.

The shrimp buffet festival is on 20 October. 

And lookout for the bloody buses, orange towels, flag waving tour guides and the game of dodge the cars when crossing the roads!

Actually it's a positive step forward. Slowly opening up to selected countries and doing rapid covid tests upon arrival at the airport. My guess is in 2021 there will be lots more freeing up, allowing hassle-free entry to people from certain countries, who have been vaccinated and do a rapid covid test at the airport. It's the best we can hope for at the present time. 

Why test if vaccinated?

I guess this is the start to convince the Thai citizens & globalist institutions,  banks that they are implementing the control requirements for the Chinese Communist party & UN , ie STV Tourists 
if you believe this is a temporary arrangement,  get in line sheeple ,its here to stay , unless...you value freedom?

120 will test positive, 120,000 baht will be paid, and 120 TV viewers will believe the news that everyone is COVD FREE as India goes towards 8 million (probably closer to 50 million by now).  

Correct positive reported negative

Thailand is in talks with China to establish a quarantine-free travel corridor by January to rescue its ailing tourism industry.

 

The agreement with Beijing will be subject to the success of a limited reopening of the Thai tourism industry to foreign travelers this month, according to Tourism Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn. China, which accounted for more than a quarter of Thailand’s tourist arrivals before the pandemic, will be the first low-risk country the Southeast Asian nation will sign up for quarantine-free travel, he said.

I agree with mehrdad , many european countries are handling a second or third wave at this very moment ,as are american and brazile and india never stopped and had one big wave that's still going on . But thailand is worrying about the arrival of 120 tourists that will not even make a dent in a pack of butter . Also german and Uk Elite visa holders will arrive on private jets one of these days ?? Germany is one of the countries where the second wave is hitting . As i said before , i know the economy is getting hit hard by this pandemic ,but it's better to keep the country closed then opening it up and having to close it down again when the virus is being brought into the country . Many european countries are going back into a lockdown as the nr's are rising rappidly and the hospitals are getting full again . These countries where very quick opening up again to get tourisme going again and now need to close back down and having a big virus problem while before they had it under controle . So better keep thailand closed until people are being vaccinated here and in different parts of the world . Opening up and having to go back into lockdown with the virus then inside the country in big nr's will not help much and will only make it worse as will it be worse for the economy . 

You are aware that there is hardly any testing inside Thailand. 

In the USA 95% of people test negative.  Which means a huge number of people is getting tested for no apparent reason or because they are sick from other diseases.

 

Also, 99% of the population is virus free- not sure why people are acting like every second person on the street is infected. 

 

You may be surprised but there is a possibility that people carry the flu virus without symptoms as well. Until now, we only considered people sick when they were showing symptoms like fever, aches etc. Now just having the virus qualifies you as sick

I would have thought they would be tested for COVID before leaving China, that country has enough criticism coming its way for spreading the virus initially.

Having said that, 120 is a drop in the bucket. Thailand needs millions to restart its tourist economy.

They are carrying buckets of money to buy everything on the Cheap , Surely these are just scouts for  the Billionaires

That's one hypothesis, it could also be a test of the Chinese tourist market. It will be interesting to see how much money will actually be spent, if that's not a state secret.

Well, it will be interesting to see how this works out. Will they spend money in high end chain stores like Gucci, or will it be King power mart?

Will they stay at luxury hotels or crammed ten to a room in a Chinese owned property.

I think they are not here for retail shopping but to buy up companies and businesses that went insolvent.

First dibs for the friends of the junta, you see?
