    Unless you need to come now, Give it a couple of week, let them iron out the bugs, and get used to the new system.

    I know exactly how you feel.
    We went through the same process last spring when they reduced the quarantine from 14 to 7 , we booked a flight for May 6th and a few days before flying they changed it back to 14 days quarantine again if arriving after the 6th
    We would have arrived six hours after the delaine LOL
    So we changed our flight and got in just under the deadline , but it was stressful.
    So given the uncertain covid circumstances it is good to have a flexible flight plans.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    Wise move mate. Contrary to the nonsense headlines claiming Thailand is open for business 1 Nov, it clearly is not. The only real change is the length of quarantine.

    A practical opening will be when you can come on visa on arrival, with a jab cert and negative test. Until then don't expect tourists to go through this convoluted bs process.

    With luck 4th quarter 2022.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    The only good thing so far was the price of the round trip ticket from Atlanta on Qatar going thru Doha to Bangkok. Best price deal I've had in years.

    It's not visa on arrival. It's Visa exemption.

    People who've already got COE's for after Nov 1st have been able to update theirs which now show they need the one day AQ booking. They can now get refunds for their ASQ.

    Of course I also read of some bunch of cuntos in Phuket that said they can't refund the SHA booking because "their system doesn't support it".

    Warning: Be cautious if you are a fragile pink

    I've got a ton of unused miles on Qatar which I think I'll use for a trip back to the motherland next year.
