    Insurance Cover covid 19

    https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/117..._campaign=news

    According to a Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand notification, distributed to Air Operators, the seven groups of foreigners expected to be allowed entry from 1st July, must have appropriate insurance policies.

    The regulations state that passengers must show they have medical insurance which applies in Thailand and covers anything and everything to do with covering COVID19. The minimum medical coverage in Thailand is for an amount of not less than USD 100,000.

    This is in addition to checking that before flying passengers must have obtained a ‘Fit to Fly’ health certificate certifying that passengers pose no risk of being infected by COVID 19 virus and this to be issued no more than 72 hours prior to date of travel.

    Has anyone found any insurers where we can get the insurance to be able to get in to Thailand?
    If so can we share links as I am not having any joy ( I could have already missed it on another thread), mine would need to be travel insurance whilst already abroad..

    Am I right in saying that as long as COVID is NOT part of the exclusions then it could be classed as giving you cover? Would that be enough to satisfy Thai immigration etc. Because I have not seen any travel insurance stating 'We are covering you for COVID'...has anyone else?

    I'm sure that Thailand knows exactly what they are doing.

    Opening the door but then turning on the invisible force field to prevent entry.
    If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.

    Rules are very specific, even for Thailand. Cover to the value of 100,000 US dollars needed.

    I agree with Keith. Unless they scrap this requirement, no-one from the West will be entering Thailand anytime soon.

    Maybe try one of the brokers that deals with expat insurance. If anyone knows of any policies it would likely be one of them.

    - COVID-19 test at Survanabhumbi cost 3,000 THB
    - Results available in just 90 minutes

    Thailand's main international airport unveiled rapid coronavirus tests on Friday for some overseas arrivals after a three-month ban on foreign visitors was partially lifted this month.

    All foreigners, except those with work permits, have been barred since March, but after more than five weeks with no recorded community transmission of the virus, Thailand is allowing in some groups of foreigners.

    Business travellers, diplomats and government guests staying for less than 14 days are considered "fast track travellers" who will be swab tested for the disease at Suvarnabhumi airport to make ensure they are infection-free before entry.

    "The test itself takes around one hour and a half," said Suwich Thammapalo, an official of Thailand's disease control department, adding that its use could be expanded in future for other arrivals and tourists.

    The airport test, costing 3,000 baht (77.15 pounds) each, is one requirement for fast-track entry without spending 14 days in quarantine, and is required of other foreigners recently allowed in, ranging from those with resident status or family in the country, as well as international students.

    That is great news, so take the test on arrival, wait 90 mins for the result, and no 14-day quarantine.

    Assuming you can get permission to enter.

    Found a company offering Covid cover on their travel insurance.
