Yes, get a negative covid test, buy insurance and quarantine, you can come to Thailand.

The link is a legitimate link of Thai insurance companies offering the insurance, its listed on embassy websites as where to buy insurance.

I tried to order the health insurance on that website you showed me, but it said this

 

“ For Special Tourist Visa (STV), a separate Health Insurance Policy is required. The limit sum insured for In-Patient is not less than THB 400,000 and for Out-Patient is not less than THB 40,000 ”

To apply the Online Health Policy, please click https://longstay.tgia.org

 

 

So i checked the longstay link, and found many insurance companies, but it doesnt seem like i can order online from them?

It's not a black and white decision. There's little to no reason rolling, targeted, requirements couldn't be enforced based on the current state of the country tourists are departing from.

They think more and more often to reduce the quarantine. And the pressure gets higher and higher. The tourism industry and the entertainment industry wants to see money as long as there is the main season. Bad for them that at the same time there are the highest Covid rates in very many countries.

 

But first they allowed only tourists from safe countries, then from high risk countries with financial requirements and now without financial requirements. Problem could be that they get too many tourists that have Corona. Too many to handle. Other problem could be that the Covid numbers in tourist areas go up. This might keep local tourists away. And the main problem - if Corona is in the country at higher numbers it is very hard and expensive to get rid of it. But everything is up to them. I am just another (longtime) tourist.

To those hoping quarantine is going soon, no such luck.

 

Today they even put off for another month making a decision about reducing it from 14 to 10 days, something that by their own calculations would only increase risk by around 0.001%, getting rid of it entirely is not even on the decision makers agenda despite the nonsense from TAT and media.

 

At this point it's a pretty sure bet quarantine is not going until vaccination is widespread, they got the population to scared to accept it going under any other circumstance .

 

They changed their mind so often in the meantime.

But they have changed the site. The no longer have the single entry tourist visa on the site. When you click next you will get a message that you need the 40/400k baht it will let you go forward to the application if you close it.
