Why can’t the Thai Govt speed up opening the doors to tourism?

No need of tests for vaccinated.

Insurance is requested for both.

 

The tricky thing is now to anticipate the DELAY of Thai Pass approval.

Because you first have to buy the air ticket i guess.

Could be a LOT of registrations the first weeks starting 29.4

What you guys do you think ? 2-3 days for approval ? 1 week ? More ?

If you follow a specific process, it gets approved instantly. Google around, there are some visa/law firms that have blogged about how that works.

 

There are certain things you must do in a specific way, such as booking hotel from a particular website, providing your hotel evidence all in one page, and NOT uploading certain very popular file types.

As the title says. Stupidity, ignorance, lack of worldly understanding, blatant sabotage, organised disruption, strategic pilfering.

 

I could go on.

Would you accuse Japan of the same? They haven't fully opened yet.

Why not do it a month ahead along with your flight ticket?

 

Is there some requirement the pass needs to be done right before you leave?

If they want to enter under the new rules they have to wait until 29/4 as thai pass site has locked may entry out.

What is the new definition of "fully vaccinated" and what is the age limit for kids not needing to be vaccinated?

One word> CONTROL.

We have a long wait before thinks get back to normal. Rushing it won't make it happen. So who takes the responsibility if all this open door let them in policy with little or no regard for other people doesn't work?

Will be interesting to see if the COVID-19 Emergency Decree is extended again.

 

Any decision should be mid-May, for the period June 1 - July 31.

 

And if vaccination remains a requirement.

 

And if insurance remains a requirement.

 

And if masks remain a requirement.

 

 

I think the airlines can enforce the vaccination requirement. And if insurance is dropped then so can the thaipass procedures.

For a family with a mix of unvaccinated children and vaccinated adults it would certainly be some confusion if children tested positive.

 

For a single person or a couple who are vaccinated, it is pretty damn simple process.

Nice summary. I could not find anything like this before now.

 

The embassy website for the visa is just a mass of confusion with links all over and confusing info.

I agree with you . The embassy can either be easy or a pain in the butt . On tender hooks waiting for your application to be accepted and in many cases your bookings for flying , hotel and insurance are just a couple of days away from being used .  Perfectly presented files rejected for one reason or another but when I present them to the agency asq the T/P or COE is made in hours . I always use the asq agency because no hassle

So far, the expected spike in Covid cases after the Songkran holidays has not raised its ugly head

Given the Covid incubation period of 2-14 days, any spike would be expected to become evident this week.

The controversial Test & Go travel scheme

What's "controversial" about it?

vaccinated travellers will only need to take self-antigen tests during their stay from May 1

As "Bridge" himself states later, they will not need to take self-antigen tests - they are only "encouraged" to do so.

confirmed that Thailand will fully reopen to foreign visitors from May 1

Every single change in entry policy has been described as the country "fully reopening". None of them, including this one, actually meets that description.

If they test positive, they could enter their Covid-19 insurance process or take care of their own treatment

Insurance is a method of payment, not a means of treatment, so this is rather meaningless.

Unvaccinated travellers will be welcomed if they present proof of a negative RT-PCR test no more than 72 hours before their trip and register via Thailand Pass.


They will be quarantined for five days

If they upload a negative PCR test, hey will NOT be quarantined for five days! The quarantine only applies if they do NOT submit a test result.
