One of the requirements is to obtain the Thailand Pass is Insurance of 'not les than $50,000.   Is that for general medical cover plus Covid or just Covid.

 

As  separate item I note that the ASQ/SHA packages are for 1 night and then the next is 7 days,  It maybe that your flight arrives after 6 p.m and 1 night will not be sufficient. Has any one seen 2 night packages?

just wait till december and the insurance will be dropped

I have just the opposite feeling. They might adjust cover down, once again. But insurance will stay, well over pandemic ends.

That's another way of taxing travellers.

So far very few were positive asymptomatic or hospitalised in phuket sandbox. But with relaxed domestic travel and entry, fuller air planes and airports, opening entertainment venues, there well might be another wave.

So basically you are saying foreign tourists should pay for insurance because Thais are infectious ?  bit unfair.

no, increased domestic tourism, opening of entertainment will cause more infections.

thai citizens do have free medical care (of hospitals will still be willing to hospitalise them), but most foreigners don't have health insurance and might do runner after spending long time in hospitals, including icu and ventilators. Thus putting strain on the government health service.

If they would have sufficient insurance they would get high quality care at private hospitals, saving their lives as well as becoming highly profitable to thailand medical tourists.

btw many thai do also have private insurance, even if only for covid, because they don't want to end up without any help in case of infection
