Well, as Thailand eases entry requirements, in Europe and USA, stock markets fall sharply and  impose restrictions on travel from some countries, and it now has a name, that name being 'OMICRON'......

A variant of concern.

Yes, they ease restrictions for tourists exactly in the wrong moment, unbelievable.

No mention of tests required entering by land, or is that the test and go ? 

Very unclear but seems like it will be same Test & Go procedure as for those arriving by air, whatever that turns out  to be.(seems to be a change comng but terms are unclear).

Be nice to visit Phnom Penh.

 

Great city for fun and action.

For reference in today's Khmer news (27 November 2021);-

These are all land crossings.

 

"December 16 target date for four Thai-Cambodia border checkpoints to be reopened"

 

In Cambodia, the four points are identified as Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet International, Malai and Boeung Trakoun, and for Battambang province, the Kilo 13 International border in Sampov Loun district.

This however is dependent on the joint decision by the Cambodian Government and Thailand’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

Well, if the experts of Thailand and the experts of Laos .......... 

Lets not go there; without any particularly strong reason just wait for February or March 2022 and then we will see ..........

So visa run company's could become back in business ....., and non O-A can be changed to Non "O" and get rid of the insurance need  when extending the ret .ext.

Laos border is not open.
Cambodian borders are the worst border points of all to do a border run, with many issues reported.

Where did they announce Laos had open their Nong Khai border? 😅

Laos is still closed and it's 14-day quarantine even if vaccinated. And is not issuing visas right now.

Thanks.

 

Now with the new variant probably stay here.  Cambodia is nice to visit but I wouldn't want to get stuck there.  My wife would be pi$$ed.

Cambodian borders are the worst of all (especially Poipet, to avoid at all costs). Anything else is a preference. 😄

About Poipet i know , my visa run service i used go always to that pung nam ron border point ...was the name ....i think

 

But have never bin so relaxed as i started my ret ext. ....if old enough for ret ext. Or if to young -50 year and  married to Thai  best thing is to go that way

I don't know.

 

Things are changing rapidly with the new variant.

 

I don't thin Lao borders are opening anytime soon either.  

 

Thats to bad for marriage visas from Mukdahan-Savanakhet. 

 

I used to enjoy those trips.

Apparently not, only those listed in my post along the Western Cambodian border with Thailand, giving easier access to Bangkok, not only for travelers but increased trade (freight etc.) as well.

Is this a permanent change meaning for an Extension made the following years, there will be no mention of Insurance  (excluding a policy change)? Or is the insurance requirement 'signed off', like the money in the bank requirement is by agent help.... meaning you are committed to using an agent every year?

If you can change from Non O-A to " O"  and have really your own 800 K on Thai bank and doc. You do not need an agent and so not on that system "hooked " for following years to come....i guess ! 

 

Unless their should becoming a synchronization for example that insurrance demand for all ret.extensions .....let us cross our fingers for that 🤞

 

(And abot the applicants  former "agents use" history ......i really dont know if wiped out ?? )
