Travel Alert for people who source meds in Thailand
« on: March 20, 2020, 01:49:49 pm »
The Thai government has started requiring all foreign visitors to Thailand to have a form from a doctor certifying that you have tested negative for coronavirus within the past 72 hours prior to arriving in Thailand and also that you have insurance that covers you in Thailand for $100000  for coronavirus.

Essentially this means very very few people will be admitted into Thailand as those requirements are practically impossible to meet as asymptomatic people mostly don't qualify for coronavirus testing in most countries. 

There are also some quarantine rules in place.  Additionally Bangkok and Pattaya have shut down the entertainment industry like bars and clubs.

SO if you were sourcing your meds at Thai Red Cross or somewhere else in Thailand, that option may no longer be available and you should start making plans to get your meds through other sources.

When this changes back to a more normal situation, I or others will come back to notify you.  The travel restrictions go into effect tomorrow.

Good post. I was fully aware of the regulations as I just lost my job because of them, I can't travel now. I had completely forgot about the forum members who rely on the Thai Red Cross. A bit selfish of me in times when we should be coming together to help each other.
Lets hope it does not last long.

Hi Harleymc, no, unfortunately I have to ride out the storm and find another job when things improve. Hopefully it won't be too long. There are people out there worse off than me as I do have savings.

Thanks for your concern
