    If you do visit DC, Rasika (two locations) is a restaurant your spouse would enjoy.

    But you should check the DC wharf first. It’s just steps away from the Mandarin Oriental. There some very nice places in the area.

    How did you get your Visa? Did you go there?
    Do I need to drive 12 hours there without an appointment in the hope that someone will see me? We have called and emailed several times and no one is answering phones or emails.

    ^Might be best if you get all your ducks in a row and mail them the completed application.

    I went to DC for that Visa yes. I thought they might have questions.

    That Visa took a little longer than the 5 day turnaround time they advertise if you walk in with the application.

    This is becoming way too complicated , would it be better if I went in on a 45 day visa exempt and get a Non Im -0 visa there?

    So I finally finished the E visa application for an Non Im -0 . and paid $80 , not sure what is going to happen because the moment I finished paying it kicked us of the website . No explanation , what is going to happen next, nothing. It was easier for my wife to apply for Citizenship in the US. LOL
    Me and the wife we were laughing our heads of , she said "Oh well TIT, they got your money, later for you" LOL
    Not sure if the application is going to go through because they were asking for Ticket number, How can I give them a ticket number, I don't even know if they are going to give me a visa, and I am going to buy a ticket?
    I typed "I don't have one yet"
    So wife sail, Log on to the application page again and see what the status is.
    so after the Email and Password there were those letters you have to type to prove you are not a robot.
    The first two letters were FU.... That's where me and my wife lost it

    we are still rolling on the floor.
    Wife says the Visa application comes with a No Money back guarantee.

    I am hearing rumours that the 7 days is on for the well known vaccines, but excludes Sinopharm and Sputnik.

    Get ready for Hoohoo to spit the dummy.

    Just spoke to the embassy, they said they got the new instructions from MOFA last night.

    7 day quarantine as per above.

    There is a slight change to the COE procedure (a couple of emails) to add proof of vaccine, that will probably end up going into the COE system at some stage, otherwise if you don't bother, you can expect 10 day quarantine unless from restricted countries.

    Great news!

    Perhaps. It's all good..
    A cynical and knowledgeable perspective might suggest that they'll be a change-up or modification of the standing policy in a month's time - in one form or another.
    Don't hold 'em to this supposedly set-in-stone standing.

    Which ever way the wind blows.

    As long as they hold this one for a few weeks, once I'm out of quarantine they can do whatever the fuck they like.

    I'm happy with 7 or 8 days in a nice hotel, I need the rest anyway.

    I feel the same way
    Do you know if the 7 day for vaccinated quarantine is at every place, or at specific areas as originally reported?

    It appears that one case of a "COVID-19 variant" in a country a traveller arrives from, as opposed to a traveller on a passport from such a country, is the red line.

    A tray full of GOLD is not worth a moment in time.

    Since I work between posts, if you actually look at the times of the first and last post each day you might get the idea...

    The vaccination has to be in the same country that you apply from too. It's why the US Thai embassy doesn't have to give the warning about that Sinopharm or Sputnik shite.

    I believe it is variants that are resistant to the available vaccines, and they are all African countries,
    Since you apply at Thai Embassy in the country you received the vaccine , I am sure the Thai embassy will inform you if your country of origine does not qualify you for the 7 day quarantine.

    This is how I got to it. IMO if it is contained in the Embassy website, it must be approved, But TIT
    I followed these links from inside the Washington DC Thai Embassy website.
    First at the home page of the embassy website click " "read more as in the screen shot below

    Thailand quarantine and entry conditions-baner-jpg

    Then in the next page that is mostly in Thai you click " (semi commercial flight) "

    Then at step #3 , you click "https://coethailand.mfa.go.th "

    Just a heads up. All the Thai visa stuff is done at the "new" Kalorama location. No parking problems and plenty of great embassy residences to see.

    It's only about 10 minutes from the Georgetown location I have been to both many times.

    OK this is a big change to what I reported earlier, although I haven't checked it with my embassy yet:

    THE COE SITE NOW HAS FIELDS FOR VACCINATION INFORMATION.

    I can't submit my COE yet as the Visa application is still being processed, but I went through it and it now has fields for:

    Vaccine Type - A pull down menu with a list of vaccines
    First Dose date
    Second Dose date
    Vaccination Certificate (Upload)

    N.B. Confirmed that the sinopharm and russian shit is not approved for 7 day quarantine. They are listed on the menu but are not ticked, so if you select them you have to do an extra three days

    If you put that information in and press submit, it lists what you are missing but in my case it also says "You are eligible for 7 day quarantine" or words to that effect.

    I expect to be told today that the verification will be done with the COE application and not separately, so it may not matter where you are applying from, and the embassy may not need to do anything else after you've got your approved Visa.

    Today's post:

    From next month, foreign tourists who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed to visit six tourism provinces, namely Phuket, Krabi, Phangnga, Surat Thani (Koh Samui), Chon Buri (Pattaya) and Chiang Mai.
    Those who have been inoculated, however, must still be quarantined, although the mandatory isolation period has been reduced from 14 to seven days.

    PM mulls quarantine 'bypass'
