Thailand Travel Restrictions and Info

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

I would have thought that the authorities would require something specific concerning general health relating to the current situtation not a general questionnaire about ability st sit unaided, use the toilet and regulate their own oxygen supply.

Is their any evidence thst this declaration would work?

he royal decree

deosn't say anything about travel. so as it is before for closures.
An emergency decree will be enforced across the country from Thursday until April 30 as the government steps up the fight against the coronavirus disease pandemic.

....Gen Prayut said all shops selling food and essential consumer goods can remain open. He warned that anybody taking advantage of the situation for their own benefit will face stern action - an apparent reference to hoarders.

Thailand is closed

Thailand has closed all of its borders - land, sea and air - to foreigners trying to enter the country.
However, borders will remain open to Thais returning from overseas and to foreigners who are in possession of a valid work permit. Diplomats will also be able to still enter the country.

The partial closure of borders was one of a number of measures confirmed by the Thai government on Wednesday as part of its recently announced emergency decree.

Borders will be closed from 26 March 2020.

DPM Wissanu - inter-provincial travel is possible, but in future there will be checkpoints on various roads to observe and manage travels for now. THERE IS NO CURFEW

fyi
Thailand’s PM Prayut Chan-o-cha spoke earnestly to the Thai people telling them to expect the worst in the next “several weeks or months” as the virus continues to ravage the country. He says that more stringent measures will be imposed that will affect their daily lives.

The State of Emergency is now in effect. The PM said that more stringent measures are necessary to slow the spread of Covid-19 and to reduce the socio-economic impacts from the contagion.

In recent days there has been rumours of a national curfew but, at this stage, none has been enacted. Locally, there was a curfew in Phuket last night, from 5pm-midnight, asking all tourists to remain in their accomodation. The announcement, from the Phuket Governor, was an effort to avoid a repeat of spontaneous gatherings on Patong Beach the night.

one way to stop people traveling;
Ticket sales for all public transport buses will be suspended from March 26 to April 30 in compliance with the government’s declaration of a state of emergency which takes effect on Thursday (March 26), the president of Transport Co Ltd, Jirasak Yaovatsakul, said.

He added that the company will also enforce social distancing by leaving empty alternate seats on the buses and keep a distance of at least one metre between persons at all bus terminals.

After the state of emergency was announced on Tuesday (March 24), people rushed to buy bus tickets. All tickets have been sold out beyond April 30. “We cannot provide additional buses and all available buses have been used. Complying with the social distancing policy halves the number of passengers per bus,” added Jirasak.

Would a tourist/expat be able to travel to the airport and leave Thailand without violating the state of emergency restrictions?
