Thailand’s state funded quarantine option may be withdrawn from July 1st

The Thai government is considering withdrawing the state funded quarantine option for international arrivals by air from July 1st, citing its cost.

 

The Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) decided on the plan at a meeting in late March, because far fewer people have been arriving from abroad compared to the pre-pandemic period, while some have taken advantage of the facility by flying in and out many times, said CCSA sub-committee chief and National Security Council Secretary-General Gen. Nattaphon Narkphanich.

 

If state supported quarantine is withdrawn, people arriving in Thailand by air will need to quarantine in paid Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) hotels instead, which means booking prior to arrival, he said, adding that state quarantine may remain in place for those arriving in Thailand by land.

Now I know who has benefitted from the plush 5 star amenity filled State sponsored quarantine facilities.  Wow, dog and pony show now it seems.

Why ?

They should allow Thais, who are returning for their first repatriation since COVID restrictions began, one free SQ. IMO. Or put them up in the lower-tier ASQ hotels, free of charge.

Govt to Close State Quarantine Facilities

BANGKOK (TNA) – The government’s Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration will close state quarantine facilities next month because they are a financial burden of the state.

 

Revealing the plan, Gen Nattapon Nakpanich, secretary-general of the National Security Council, said the center would propose their closure on July 1 to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha due to the financial concern.

 

CCSA would have arrivals pay for their own quarantine at alternative state quarantine facilities at reasonable prices, he said.

Wow! I had never heard of a free government option.

 

Have any TVers actually done this?

Only if they are Thai citizens. Not sure if it was available to permanent residents but I dont think so.

Very cheap compared to the mandatory UK quarantine which is for UK nationals as well.

Slight difference in cost of living between the two countries, I guess?
