It doesn't change anything for me, because my country is not on the list of 63 countries.  But what about the idea of reducing your SHA + hotel stay from 7 to 5 nights?  Will this decision also be reversed?

Forget about regular tourists then. The ones who are coming will be returning Expats / Business folks or some desperate guys who met a Thai girl online and are now embarking on that cumbersome journey for the sake of a date. 

Yes, 'date', nice way to put it.

Yes a little bit dearer than Thailand but infrastructure and lack of scams make up for that.

Just car break ins. Every time I've been there my car has been broken in to. If you get scammed , maybe the 1st or second time you get the picture and the learning curve kicks in . but criminal elements are worse.

I think all the expats wanting to return have already done so, same goes for returning thai's.
expect lower than expected arrival numbers soon.

 

Do you have any evidence/data etc., for your assumption, especially in regard to foreigners?

That's just an excuse.  It is a cash cow and highly profitable as tourists are forced to take RT-PCR tests with extremely inflated price tags.  Which is another reason Covid never ever goes away. 
It is way too lucrative. 

Exactly.  That's Thailand health services.  Making money from inflated tests. Let's it it all continue down the black hole it's destined

Seems the CCSA has more in common with a yoyo than a proper administration

Do you expect them to not react to new information?  Omicron is a big change, we don't yet know if it's for good or bad, but if they wait to react until they're certain, it would be too late.

True 🙂 But that goes also for a lot of similar institutions in many other countries. It's the same music all over the world, with WHO as the director reminiscent of the Apprentice in Fantasia.
