When they first suspended Test and Go in December it was intended as a temporary measure until they could see how serious Omicron would become. They should stick to their own plan and lift the suspension now that even the Health Minister has said things have gone better than expected.

Good news that they're at least considering it, but I'm not holding my breath.

I wish he'd hold his.

TOURISTS ARE NOT COMING COMING BACK IN THE NUMBERS YOU PREDICT UNTIL YOU DROP ALL RESTRICTIONS.

YOU CANNOT HAVE THOSE RESTRICTIONS AND THE TOURIST NUMBERS YOUR CURRENT HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY WAS SET UP FOR.

WE NEED TO LIVE WITH COVID LIKE WE LIVE WITH INFLUENZA. GET USED TO IT.

IF YOU FEEL YOU NEED ADDED PROTECTION GET ON THE VACCINE MERRY-GO-ROUND.

ITS ALL COMMON SENSE.

That last point is why they are all still swimming around and around in that round tank going exactly…….nowhere!

 

 

Even after all restrictions are dropped, expect no more than 5 million tourists a year, from 2026 forward. Everything has changed. Nothing was addressed, no concessions or sacrifices have been made, and Thailand has been forgotten. The tourism industry joins the Prayuth dustbin of destruction and desolation.

Covid will be with us for many years to come. 

No one likes the chances of contracting it ,but we can no longer afford to live in a bubble. 

Thailand has to open up its borders with very few restrictions. 

Then Tourists will reappear again.

People should pay more attention to the small print before SHOUTING the odds, one can only assume you are "irked".

 

Continued statements that Thailand is moving away from its former, perhaps controversial but highly lucrative foreign tourism market must tend to irk foreign adults who over the last thirty years or so have made Thailand a second home with many often spending their annual savings on trips to what used to be called the Land of Smiles. https://www.thaiexaminer.com/thai-news-foreigners/2021/12/17/thailand-again-signals-end-of-mass-tourism-thai-examiner/

Granted, this is just discussion of a proposal, but I wonder if it would be a reinstatement of the previous Test & Go program.  i.e. Only for a white list of specified countries, with an expanded choice of one-week sandboxes in places like Pattaya for those from non-white-listed countries.  Or, are they talking about Test & Go 2.0 with different provisions?

I read the entire, original article, and it said nothing about test and go tourists being fully vaccinated. Is this a change? Or was this just an accidental omission? Curious.
