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.

Monkeys revolt in Prachup Khiri Khan

Image
Days after a pitched battle between rival monkey gangs rocked Lop Buri in central Thailand, dozens, perhaps hundreds of monkeys have ransacked an old town hall building in the southern province of Prachuap Khiri Khan, forcing staff to flee. It’s believed in both instances that the drop in tourism caused by the Covid-19 coronavirus, combined with dry weather and drought, has created a food shortage for the animals, forcing them to forage.

The old town hall building is located about 100 metres away from Khao Chong Krachok mountain, where the monkeys are believed to have come from. The monkeys have torn apart the roof, electrical wires, the ceiling, lights, and office equipment. Officials of various departments working in the building have been forced to find makeshift temporary quarters.

I did an about turn on the road around that monkey mountain in Prachuap when I was down there to watch a football game a couple of seasons ago. Loads of them and they didn't look too welcoming. :D

Well I've just noticed trump has banned travel from Britain and Ireland to US! I'm still wondering if Thailand might take similar action

Thailand has added the UK, USA and several other countries to the list of countries it regards as being “high risk” for Covid-19 coronavirus contagion. The list now includes: Japan, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the UK and USA.

“Travellers arriving from the countries with ongoing local transmission are required to be under observation (supervision without quarantine) in order to ensure self-monitoring for no less than 14 days until the end of the infectious period or the reason for suspicion.”

“Travellers must record their own symptoms in the reporting system and monitor their symptoms strictly as required by the MOPH.”

“The traveller must notify the disease control officer about the places he/she visits, so that a surveillance officer can closely monitor his/her movement and contacts.”

No idea how they will monitor this thou

All travellers from the Disease Infected Zones must complete the T8 form, via the AOT application or on paper, and submit it to the communicable disease control officials at the control post at the airport of disembarkation.

After downloading the AOT application, travellers are required to complete the T8 with their personal information including name, nationality, passport number, active mobile phone number and active e-mail address. The data will be stored for 14 days from the arrival date. This is to allow Thai health officials to contact the travellers in case of an emergency, e.g., passengers seated in close vicinity are tested positive for COVID-19.

the start of the end if this happens;

Pattaya shut down imminent: Bars and clubs brace for closure order
The bars, pubs and clubs in Pattaya are bracing for orders from the government to shut to stop the spread of coronavirus in crowded areas.

Comments made by health minister and deputy prime minister Anutin Charnvirakul after a meeting have instilled the feeling that time is up for Thailand's biggest entertainment resort, at least for now.
