I researched found different sources and confused me. What do I need to prepare extra documents compare to the normal circumstance not COVID-19? 

Travel: USA to Bangkok and Bangkok to USA.

 

Thanks,

Thailand is right now not open, to foreigners, for general travel into the country except for people in certain specific categories (apart from certain diplomats etc), e.g. foreigners who hold specific visas connected to having a Thai family, foreigners who hold Thai work permits or a Thai Certificate or Residence.  

 

On the other side of the story have you established what restrictions might apply to US citizens leaving the US and entering the US at the moment.

 

Also can you qualify for/obtain a Thai COE (Certificate of Entry) to enter Thailand, and do you know what airlines/specific flights are approved to bring foreigners from the US (and other countries) into Thailand at the moment?

Thanks for the info. I need to read and find out more. Had no idea about COE or Airlines before.

it will set you back $4-5000 USD for everything to get in on top of airline tickets. two week quarantine. extra insurance. possible quarantine returning to the USA. 

have a friend who had to fly to a different city in the USA to get the test that alone cost him $600.

If you're from Michigan, you're servicing consulate in in Chicago https://www.thaiconsulatechicago.org/pages-Visa.html  I'd suggest you start there, read all the requirements, then consult a worthy website like https://www.facebook.com/groups/275821990252759/   They have helped countless expats navigate the COE/airlines/insurance/ASQ/Visa requirements.  If you have a question, you can usually get it answered within a few hours.

Not much different for travel from Europe (Germany).

I personally know one guy who did it. No idea how he survived two weeks without booze (heavy drinker) :sad:

A couple of logs/vlogs on the internet about the procedure.

And of course also here in the forum ("COE", "ASQ", "STV", quarantine).

Not sure whether this Los Angeles thread is of help:

Lol where have you been. You can enter Thailand Visa Exempt 45 days, Tourist Visa 60 days etc etc, all with 16 days quarantine all can be extended by 30 days. Best not post if you dont know what you are talking about.

I did from the states , FL to Bangkok last month, Total cost for everything  including insurance, flight ,ASQ at the Marriott , and the Covid test in the states with Fit to fly less than 2500 USD. The process for the COE is easy and took me less than 40 minutes from start to finish to complete . I still don't understand why people think it is a big deal to come here. Thailand is open, all it takes is a little effort to get here.

There's a quite entertaining letter on stickboybangkok where the guy was whisked from ASQ to hospital because he tested +ve for Covid but doesn't have it.

He took some. Spirits instead of beer.

He said that there was no customs check to be seen at all.

(don't touch the poisonous baggage :tongue:)

But don't rely on that.
