I am stunned that nobody wants to jump through the many hoops of 💩 to come to a mostly closed island with restrictions and growing covid cases for a holiday. Singaporeans don't know what they are miss

Paying for the 7 days or 14 days quarantine is only 50% of the problem ..... The most part is being stuck in a ASQ hotel for most part of the vacation/holiday. No one is going to do that.

Hospitels are not covered by covid insurance. And after completion they would be, most likely, turned back home.

That's easy to solve.  Require insurance companies to cover all gub'ment mandated quarantine expenses as a condition of being an approved insurance policy for the COE.  22,000 Sandbox tourists, and to my knowledge they haven't paid out a single Covid related hospital claim for any of them.  And very few put into mandatory quarantine.  They have enough data now to calculate the actuarials.

So they are willing to pay some of the quarantine costs in your home country (...)

Sounds a bit like what the jetski boys told me on the beach: "Don't worry, just have fun. It's very cheap, and we won't ask for more money..."

they are so desperate to come here that thailand has to pay them to come.

Once this pandemic is under control, there are three or four countries where I want to spend my holiday $$, but Thailand is not on the list, even if they paid for my whole holiday.

Yes, there are no options in the whole wide world. TAT has made Thailand the promised land.

Most genuine tourists do not have time for quarantine the only way to restart international tourism is entry to Thailand without draconian restrictions the Samui plus scheme is frankly ridiculous who in their right mind is interested in such restrictions stuck in an expensive hotel and only allowed out with hotel transport etc etc.

And what about other folks who need to get back to their work / their families etc? 

 

Will they get their quarantine costs subsidized?

But Thanes Petchsuwan noted that many countries have a requirement that returning tourists need to quarantine for 14 days and this is hindering matters due to its expense.

 

Some have suggested that if Thailand paid part of their 14 day quarantine costs then they would visit.

New director, same stupid ideas. 
 

While the cost is indeed an issue, the fact that you have to quarantine for 14 days after your “holiday” is the problem for many. 
 

Sort out your ******* vaccination programme so people don’t have to quarantine for 14 days in an asq hotel on return.
