Everything You Should Know About Relocating to Thailand in 2020

We would like to inform you that we received a directive from our government, The Ministry of Public Health (Department of Disease Control) regarding preventative measures against the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus.

Special Announcement of COVID-19 on 23 February 2020, Thailand

The instructions are clear and self-explanatory. Please pay special attention to the following:

Thailand’s disease prevention and control cannot be achieved without the cooperation of the public. Therefore, people traveling from areas with reports of ongoing outbreaks or local transmission including the People's Republic of China (including Hong Kong, Macau, Republic of China (Taiwan), Japan, Singapore, the Republic of Korea (South Korea), are asked to take social responsibility by self-monitoring at least 14 days upon return and arrival to Thailand.

As a consequence of this, please be informed that our company is unable to provide any services or physically meeting the assignees arriving from above countries until after 14 days from the arrival date. They have to be in self-quarantine for this period of time and present us with the doctor’s clearance certificate before we could meet them and start the program.

Please note that international schools already have posted similar directives on their websites.

We regret that this may upset the relocation plans of our clients, particularly for those assignees who have planned to come on a short pre-arrival orientation/school search. However, for assignees who are already confirmed for long-term relocation to Thailand, we recommend to provide them with a Temporary accommodation period of 1-2 months, to cover the first 14 days quarantine period and then proceed with the accompanied home and school search. In this way, clients and assignees could basically follow their planned relocation schedules without much or any delay.
