Imagine if you come on holiday to Thailand and it becomes a red country! Stuck here, unable to return with your family and the nightmare that then ensues. 

 

I will say again: FORGET mass tourism it is OVER for the foreseeable. 

Agree....but in their defense I guess they have to be doing everything they can (or be seen to) to promote tourism.........it keeps them in a job and it is good optics, as they say.........(still futile).

I would rate the chances as being:

 

Moving to Green - 10:1

Staying at Amber - even 

Moving to Red - 5:1

 

In other words, there probably more chance of Thailand moving to Red than Green, but I think the UK will maintain at Amber.

Don't  they know that  amber means accelerate to avoid a  red and red means accelerate  to avoid a red in Thailand? They must therefore  declare Phuket a Triple Red to avoid  any misunderstandings!

UK citizens CAN return from Red countries but they must pay £1750 for 10 days compulsory hotel quarantine.

Per person. Do they offer packages for families?

Sorry darling!

As you know I had to visit Thailand on business but I am now stuck here for a very long time,

Please transfer £xxxxxx to my sole account.

 

Love and miss you!

Yes. I think it is £1000 for second adult and £600 for a child with a cap I think of £3500.

Thailand status is not the only problem, unless on a direct flight.

Currently the major ME hubs are red which means mandatory government quarantine.

They can prevent you going on holiday, but not returning, due to the duty of care they have to their citizens and getting them home.

 

Interesting, but if you havent booked and paid for the day 2 and  8 covid tests wth a receipt before flying and tested negative in the prior 72 hrs, dont think you are allowed to board.

Correct.

You also have to fill out a passenger locator form.
