The ban was first introduced by Dr Chula Sukmanop, Director-General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT), on Apr 4 and remained in effect just three days until 23.59pm on Apr 6. (See story here.)

Just hours before that deadline expired the ban was extended from 00:01am Apr 7 through to 23:59pm on April 18. (See story here.)

CAAT Director Dr Chula this morning (Apr 15) extended the ban again, with the extension coming into effect at 00.01 on April 19 Thailand time and and remaining in effect until 23:59pm on April 30. (See official noticed posted here.)

@armitagepeter    You think Thailand is the only country to do so ? And most airlines do not fly anyway.Special flights for repatriation are still allowed.

I find it quite shocking that the Thai authorities have banned outbound flights; also they still require some (e.g Africans), if not all foreigners, to stand in line at Immigration offices every 2 WEEKS to renew their Visas. This exposes them/others to risk of infection. A humane response by Thai authorities - as other countries have - would be automatic visa extensions and not imposing fines
