British man fined for overstay after being compelled into Bangkok quarantine

You take your PCR test after your keep in Thailand, earlier than you come back home to the UK. You take a look at positive and are confined in a Bangkok hospital for 10 days. Then, to add insult to damage, you’re fined four,000 baht for overstaying your visa when you go through immigration… purely since you were confined in hospital.
ติดตั้งโซล่าเซลล์Huawei is the sad tale, considered one of many, when the Test & Go program didn’t quite go to plan. Quite a high percentage of tourists from abroad have been found to check constructive after their obligatory PCR checks (certainly in locations like Phuket during late December and January), leaving them to an unsure 10 days of quarantine in a hospital, ‘hospitel’, field hospital or, if they’re fortunate, confined to their hotel or place of residence.
This was the primary message to The Thaiger from a gentleman we’ll name ‘CM’…

“My current experience… On 3rd January I tested optimistic for covid when I took a pcr take a look at for a return flight to the UK, I was incarcerated in a hospital room for 10 days despite the very fact that I was asymptomatic. Upon release I left the country the next day but because my visa expired on 5th January I was fined 4000 baht by Immigration at the airport for overstaying. I wasn’t the only one being fined for overstaying because of quarantine incarceration, crazy Thailand.”

He had been confined to Bangkok’s BangPo Hospital. But, even there, he struck issues with hospital directors who alleged that the patient’s insurance coverage firm wouldn’t pay the full quantity of his treatment bill. (The Thaiger has copies of the CM’s hospital bill)

As soon as he was released from his incarceration at the hospital, CM headed to the Suvarnabhumi Airport the place immigration officials, despite being presented with proof of his enforced quarantine, fined him for eight days of overstay, @500 baht per day. A whole of 4,000 baht. (The Thaiger has a copy CM’s immigration fantastic receipt)

“Tried to clarify, confirmed the certificates from the hospital, they ignored it. I was instructed to sign 2 documents (both in Thai), handed over the four,000 baht, passport endorsed and so they moved onto the following guy (also overstayer because of quarantine).
In further messages to The Thaiger, CM informed us that he had come to Thailand for a Christmas/New Year break together with his Thai girlfriend.
“I arrive beginning December for Christmas and New Year holiday and go to with my gf, first time back in over 2 years.”
