    but I've read in the Laos times, that Laos supposedly isn't letting foreigners in,but as Jeff posted I'm sure the Chinese are being let in.

    seems also anyone that doesn't want to go back to Laos,and go into quarantine, can pay certain people 13,000 baht and they get a three month visa,but supposed to be only for very good friends.

    Didn't know he worked for immigration, though I believe my lady Laos could get you some if you wanted.

    Nothing wrong with extending the emergency decree to meet volatile conditions, though it makes little sense to also shorten incoming quarantine requirements. Can't confirm with links, but bits I've read suggest the Thai medical consensus is torn between dangerous and catastrophe to start attracting tourists while some countries are being hit with a second wave.

    Could be a matter of time before some major gov decides wtf let's reopen for the new normal, with a few reasonable demands like continued testing, masks, social distancing and gels; then others will follow.

    It appears that Phuket is the experimental destination.

    Thailand to slowly restart tourism with flight from China

    By Panarat Thepgumpanat, Chayut Setboonsarng


    "Thailand will receive its first foreign vacationers when a flight from China arrives next week, marking the gradual restart of a vital tourism sector battered by coronavirus travel curbs, a senior official said on Tuesday.

    The first flight will have about 120 tourists from Guangzhou, flying directly to the resort island of Phuket, Tourism Authority of Thailand governor Yuthasak Supasorn told Reuters.

    Thailand has kept coronavirus infections low with just 3,559 cases and 59 deaths, but its economy has taken a hit from a ban on foreign visitors since April and is expected to contract 8.5% this year.

    Government spokeswoman Traisulee Traisoranakul expects 1,200 tourists in the first month, generating about 1 billion baht ($31.55 million) in revenue and 12.4 billion baht over one year, drawing in 14,400 tourists.

    Nationalities permitted to enter will be from countries deemed low risk by the government, which will keep tabs on them.

    “We are not opening the country, we are limiting the number of entries and will manage with wrist bands, apps to follow them,” Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha told reporters.

    The government predicts just 6.7 million foreign visitors this year after a record 39.8 million in 2019, whose spending made up about 11.4% of GDP, or 1.93 trillion baht.

    Thailand in January was the first country outside of China to detect the coronavirus, in a visitor from Wuhan.

    “Tourists will be on a long stay visa, starting Oct. 8 and will stay in alternative state quarantine for 14 days,” Yuthasak said.

    Visitors need health insurance and a negative coronavirus test 72 hours before travelling and will be tested twice in quarantine.

    “Thailand’s protection system can prevent a second wave,” government spokeswoman Traisulee said.

    “We have prevented local transmission for 100 days before,” she said, adding that had made Thailand attractive for visitors wanting to avoid infections."

    I read Phuket. Never mind, my attention was drawn to this:

    expects 1,200 tourists in the first month, generating about 1 billion baht


    Nearly 1 million Baht per traveller?
