No they can return but have to quarantine. Not as bad as Nannystralia

This summer in the England has been wonderful after 18 months of restrictions.   No masks, no social distancing, holiday by the beach, pub and nightclubs packed as were festivals and footbal

British people going to the U.K are not required to have any vaccinations against Covid 

Yeah. OK. I believe you. What isn't mentioned is the UK not accepting visitors vaccinated with certain make of vaccines..

If Thailand reverts to Amber, Brits will still have to self quarantine , rather than staying in a quarantine  hotel

No, if you are British from an Amber list country ( me) you have to pre order and pay a second day test which you will do at home, and then put in a Royal Mail red sticker mail box. List of boxes online at Royal mail.com

second day, means the second day after arrival in UK. When ordering your test online, they send you a certificate which you need to enter UK.  They send the test to the address you put on the forms, it’s all explained on gouv. You do not have to quarantine at all.

That is if you have been fully vaccinated by a U.K approved vaccine . 

  Those who haven't been fully vaccinated by a U.K approved source will have to do ten days self quarantine

This should hopefully mean that people travelling to the UK from Thailand will not be required to undergo mandatory 14 day hotel quarantine, which currently costs approximately £2,000 per person. 

But in Phuket where international tourists have to start their sentence, the infections are climbing daily?

Most people who contract the virus do not show any symptoms and it doesn't effect them at all

That's not accurate - only a minority of cases are asymptomatic. A fairly sizeable minority, but still a minority.

 

While earlier estimates varied widely, from 4% all the way up to 81%, the latest figures I could find (as of August 13) put it at not much more than a third.

 

Quote

Now an analysis by a group of US medical researchers on more than 350 studies has found just over 35 percent of all COVID-19 infections don't proceed to a symptomatic phase.

Oh well. They will need to reduce testing even more now. Can't stop those pesky walk-ins tho'.

I would be surprised if the UK removes Thailand from the red list after having just put Thailand on the red list. Its more likely that Thailand will remain on the red list for some time. Dubai remained on the red list for 7 months (UAE) and those middle eastern countries have plenty of money to spend on vaccines. I was surprised that Thailand went on the red list but maybe they don't want Brits coming to Thailand on holiday, getting covid, and then returning with a new varient?

Not a chance, you just have to sit in the hotel for a while.

No. It means you will have to spend 10 days in an AQH @£2450.00 I believe the cost to be.

Cheap at twice the price after having your nose probed on at least three occasions.🤣

It isn't a question of getting "a U.K approved vaccine", but of being vaccinated under an "approved programme":

 

"You must have been fully vaccinated under one of the following programmes:

 

- UK vaccination programme, approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

 

- UK vaccine programme overseas, approved by the MHRA

 

- an approved vaccination programme in Europe or the USA – not all are recognised in England"

 

If you are traveling from an amber country but were inoculated in Thailand, you currently aren't considered "fully vaccinated", even if you received a double dose of Pfizer or of Europe-produced AZ, and you are required to isolate at home for ten days.

I do think that that is incorrect . 

Certain vaccines are accepted and other ones are not , it doesnt matter the location of where you had the vaccination done , but even so, its a moot point because vaccinations are not required for Brits when entering the U.K 

vaccinations not required, but if not vaccinated, then 14 days quarantine, at around 100,000 baht ?

Another reason why the numbers here are being 'Engineered' to be lower every day; gotta get off these Red Listings and also got to show we can open to allcomers on 1st October as the Big Pumpkin said we would !

You clearly have a decent amount of solid evidence at hand to substantiate this - and not just your barroom theories - documents etc. It's quite a conspiracy that would involve a large number of people. Maybe forward it to one of the independent news sources out there. They'd be keen to see it.

Where could you stop for a ten day holiday ?

Every Country either requires you to be fully vaccinated or to also do a ten day quarantine in their Country as well

Just another armchair conspiracy theorist 
 

I am surprised the government hasn't enlisted a panel of foreign experts to advice their committee on Covid policy. They are missing out on such a vital source of knowledge.

Canary islands only require one dose to allow entry ?
