    Secondly, the big meeting is tomorrow:

    Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha, as the director of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) Committee, is preparing to consider full details of the country reopening plan as proposed by the CCSA sub-panel committee by tomorrow, October 22nd.

    According to local media, the details will include the full list of at least 10 low-risk countries that would be allowed to visit the country without mandatory quarantine. Previously, the government only mentioned five countries, namely the United Kingdom, the United States, Singapore, Germany, and China.
    The Prime Minister will also consider screening and preventive procedures of incoming tourists. Dr. Sumanee Watcharasin, a health official from the Department of Disease Control, previously stated to the press that the current proposals, not yet finalized, for incoming Thai and foreign nationals will be three groups as follows:

    1. Vaccinated travelers from all countries apart from the low-risk countries must enter mandatory quarantine/Sandbox areas as provided by the Thai government.
    2. Travelers who are not fully vaccinated must enter mandatory quarantine as provided by the Thai government.
    3. Travelers from low-risk countries as listed by the government who wish to travel in 17 pilot provinces, also called Blue-zone provinces, must:
      1. receive two doses of vaccination
      2. present negative result of RT-PCR Covid-19 test which must be tested no less than 72 hours before traveling.
      3. agree to have a Covid-19 test by the Thai medical personnel upon arrival. They will be allowed to travel to the designated areas only when the result is negative.
      4. apply for least $50,000 in health insurance beforehand
      5. present a receipt or booking information of accommodations

    TPN media must stress that none of this is yet “finalized” or official and are proposals. The PM is set to review these proposals tomorrow, October 22nd, at which point more concrete information may be available.
    According to the latest announcement, the blue zoned provinces/areas are Bangkok, Samut Prakan (Suvannabhumi International Airport), Krabi, Phang Nga, Prachuap Khiri Khan (Hua Hin), Phetchaburi (Cha-am), Chonburi (Pattaya, Banglamung, Na Jom Tien, Bang Saray, Koh Sichang, Si Racha), Ranong (Koh Payam), Chiang Mai (Meung, Mae Rim, Mae Tang, Doi Tao), Loei (Chiang Kan), Buriram (Mueang), Nong Khai (Mueang District, Si Chiang Mai, Tha Bo, Sang Kom), Udon Thani (Mueang District, Na Yung, Nong Han, Prajaksilpakom, Kumphawapi, Ban Dung), Rayong (Koh Samet), and Trat (Koh Chang). This could, of course, change before the final announcement and before it is made official.
    However, the full details will not be officially revealed until it has been finalized and approved by the Prime Minister at the general CCSA meeting, currently scheduled for tomorrow morning.

    So it seems SHA hotels will perform the arrival PCR test on site and the cost is included in the booking.

    Or at least mine is.

    I applied for COE a couple weeks ago, got conditional approval last week but now COE's are a thing of the past and I have to now apply for a Thailand Pass when that gets up and running. Since I'm coming from the US I do not have to be quarantined for 15 days but have to spend one night in a hotel where a Covid PCR test will be given. If I am Covid free I can leave the next day for home. The one night hotel stays are quite expensive. One night at the Solitaire Sukhumvit Soi 11 costs 5,900 baht which is inclusive of transport from the airport, meals and the usual room amenities.

    Half of that is your PCR test as well by the sounds.

    $50,000 coverage. But it's health insurance. I still took the $100k, it's Bt2800 for 30 days. And mine covers you if you get quarantined while asymptomatic.

    Not all of them do.

    Pretty pointless trying to post it as text. Try a screenshot next time.

    What visa are you going for? And from where? And are you a citizen or just a resident?

    I found out today that the village headman where my home is in Surin province has taken it upon himself to force me into home quarantine for 14 days upon my arrival. It seems the village residents believe that westerners have brought Covid to Thailand and they don't want to take any chances. I am also told that if I try to violate this quarantine it will bring tremendous scorn upon my family in the village.

    The sooner I can wrap up my loose ends in this place and get back to Atlanta the better.

    Today's PR Department updates courtesy of Richard Barrow:

    Regulations on Entering Thailand from 1 November 2021

    - The “Thailand Pass” system will be adopted to replace the Certificate of Entry (COE) issuance process. As the system aims to facilitate entry into Thailand, the process for filling information and uploading travelers’ documents will be shortened. The system is expected to be launched on 1 November 2021.

    - At the present, travelers may still register for COEs before the new “Thailand Pass” system operates on 1 November. For those COEs that have already been issued, it remains valid after 1 November.

    - For travelers aged under 12 years old who are not fully vaccinated, they are eligible to enter Thailand under the Exemption of Quarantine, and undergo the similar measures to their accompanying persons.


    - The negative RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours before traveling is required before entering the country and travelers must also undergo a RT-PCR test on their arrival date and wait for the result at a SHA Plus hotel or Alternative Quarantine (AQ) hotel for 1 night or until they receive confirmation of a negative result.


    - The CCSA highlighted that only the fully vaccinated individuals who have been residing in the 45 countries and 1 territory for at least 21 days or have previously stayed in Thailand before traveling back may enter the country without quarantine.


    - The reopening/no quarantine scheme is different and separate from the sandbox scheme. One news agency reported that those in the listed countries/territories can go quarantine free only in the 17 provinces, which is misleading. Again, no quarantine and being on the list means access to the whole country.


    - The sandbox scheme is the same as the “blue zone” and it applies to both foreigners and Thais alike. The measures will be relaxed in these zones and it applies equally to everyone
