    First group of Chinese tourists to arrive in Phuket on Oct 8th

    On October 8th, a group of 150 Chinese nationals, issued with special tourist visas (STV), will be the first foreign tourists allowed into Thailand, under the conditional entry scheme for selected groups of foreigners endorsed by the CCSA yesterday.


    Thailandís Tourism and Sports Minister, Pipat Ratchakitprakarn, said today that they will fly directly to Phuket on a chartered Air Asia flight, adding that another, smaller group of seven Chinese businessmen will arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport on a private jet on the same day.


    He added that, on October 25th, another group of 126 Chinese tourists, from Guangdong, will fly into Suvarnabhumi on a chartered Thai Smile flight, to be followed by a group of 120 tourists from Scandinavia and Schengen countries on a Thai Airways International flight on November 1st.


    Regarding quarantine facilities to accommodate these tourists, the Minister said that three hotels in Phuket, and one each in Chon Buri and the northeastern province of Buri Ram, have been chosen.


    Meanwhile, Phuket Deputy Governor Pichet Panapong said that the provincial disease control committee is prepared to cope with the arrival of selected foreign tourists, such as long stayers, the STV tourists and those who have a second home in Thailand.


    He said that a cargo container, based at Terminal X of Phuket International Airport, has been converted into a laboratory, which will conduct tests on all arriving tourists, adding that those who are cleared by the tests will be taken to the quarantine hotels, where they will remain for 14 days, and all of them will be required to load the tracing application in their smart phones, so that they can be traced throughout their stay in Thailand.


    He said that the security at the selected quarantine hotels has been tightened, to prevent the tourists from leaving during their mandatory isolation period.


    Amorn Intharacharoen, Chairman of the Board of Phuket Pearl Group, admitted that there is still public concern over the risk of new COVID-19 infections being passed on by the tourists.


    The emphasis now should be on preventive measures and the readiness of officials to cope with the situation, he added.

    Clearly, they are not "tourists" but de facto residents who managed to establish businesses in Thailand and want to enjoy the fruits of their enterprise.

    You may wish to read the IATA site. It states that Thai nationals/children of a Thai national, are allowed to enter Thailand. They do need a COE issued by their local Thai Embassy.

    Anyone who believes that group of chinks are "tourists" is perhaps in need of some care and supervision if they were to venture alone into the big wide world.

    Who is the stupid one?

    You: live in a polluted 3rd world country populated by people you dislike, in a flat whose value is sinking quicker than the foundations it sits on, obsessed with a brexit that you clearly dont understand hoping you dont get ill (at least physically you are already mentally ill) situated next to an open sewerage pond and you eat food that is as dodgy as your intellect in a place you cant afford to leave.

    Me: lives in a house (Appreciating in value every year) adorned with fruit trees in pollution free air in sunny queensland where the health system is free, a stones throw from beaches and ocean which are clean and the food is grown and consumed with the highest safety standards in the world.

    I rest my case.
