Is Thailand Travel Possible TODAY? (Entire Process Detailed)

Join the RW4U Members Club and enjoy all kinds of goodies…details here:

Time to head back to Thailand, my favorite country in the world. Time to eat some delicious Thai Food, enjoy those epic Thai Beaches, and fire up the next chapter of Retired Working For You! Only one thing….I gotta get there first and I’m a half a world away.
What is it like to travel across international borders during COVID? Well, find out in this video as we travel from Toronto, Canada through Hong Kong and finally into Thailand where I’ll enter the Phuket Sandbox. I will show you every step of the way, from the crazy paperwork that you need to fill out to enter Thailand these days to get a Certificate of Entry (COE), to the meal options at 4am in the Hong Kong Airport. Man, I long for the days where it’s as easy as booking your ticket, grabbing your passport and heading to the Airport.

Here are some Google Map Pins, as promised in the video:

    I arrived in bkk in august, found a condo immediately. I will wait until i visit friends in Phuket. I have enough time to settle. Try talking thai to Emirates cabin crew was quite funny. She said mai kao chai and asked her thai coworker for assistance. I had a question about immigration documents. The thai lady said i don’t know either. Ask the Airport staff after arrival. Immigration just smiled and said mai pen rai, the vida stamps should be updated. Just ignore the Visa number i didn’t find. 14 days ASQ were not as painful as I thought

    Hello my name is David from Canada I am planning to come to Chiang Mai in November to see my girlfriend and was wondering if you know if it is going to open up as a sandbox program or not.
    Glad to see you made it back.
    Thank you in advance

    Great video Mr CJ Parker. Great to see and hear about the process and I am not jealous of you being back at the Pavilions. Can't wait to see where you end up going after your 2 weeks in Phuket.

    Fabulous video! one of your best yet. I love how you show the process and hurdles we need to go through. I have been to Thailand 3 times, I cant wait to go back! I am also from the Toronto area. Just curious, who did you fly with? And how much was the flight?

  8. Jacob Johnson

    A proof of vaccination and a negative covid test. Now how does that make any sense? Instead of traveling you should be fighting for your fucking freedom!!!!!

    You make me sick!!!

    I watched your channel since last rainy season in thailand, at that time you have only 19,000subs.It's unbelivable you have got now neary ten times subs.

    👍 Great you made it! Do you think travel restrictions will ease up in the future? What you went through I dont think I could do this process! I l think I'll wait some to see what happens in 2022. Hopefully things will get easier to travel to Thailand 🇹🇭 🙏

    Thank you for sharing Chris. I'm still waiting to go, since I work from home I can now travel to Thailand for at least couple of months. Question for you…Is a VPN the only thing I need to work from Thailand for a U.S. company or do I need to do more then just getting a VPN? And what VPN service would you recommend? First time doing this so if any one have any information please share 😁 would greatly appreciated. The only thing is while doing quarantine will bored me to death when traveling solo. Anyway glad you and your family made it safe back to Thailand and thank you again for sharing the process.

    Great video thank you Chris.. I'm glad you made it back! My question is how expensive is the Pavilion for 2 weeks? My problem is I own a condo in Phuket so have a real problem spending money on a quarentine hotel. 🤷🙏😎🌞🌅⭐

    Superb video. I have wondered for months what it must really be like arriving under the sandbox, and couldn't have asked for a more detailed and informative video to answer all my questions. Thanks!

    This Canuck loved the Zamboni reference & Stompin' Tom tune. There must be a bar or two in Bangkok that has Canadian NHL games on throughout the season?
