Thai YouTuber complains about Test & Go: ‘Foreigners won’t come back if going through this…’

After reportedly seeing crowds of vacationers left ready for resorts at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, a Thai YouTuber has voiced his discontent about Thailand’s unpopular Test & Go entry scheme. He stated the system was a multitude, with hotel staff having to shout to discovering their guests, whereas vacationers searched for the logos of their resorts, “as if they had been taking part in a puzzle game”.
Atichan Cherngchavano, who goes by his on-line alias “Au Spin9”, is a well-liked YouTuber reviewer of IT products in Thailand. On Sunday, he posted footage of crowds of international travellers at the airport on his private Facebook web page, together with a caption complaining in regards to the Test & Go program and airport management. (Thais also should undergo the Test & Go or Sandbox packages when re-entering Thailand).
In his post, which shortly went viral, he said…

“This is how Suvarnabhumi airport manages the passengers from the Test & Go program. No one can go away. The travellers stood still while numerous resort staff shouted out their hotel’s names to find their clients until their voices cracked. Some employees shook their heads in disappointment. Some travellers had been angry on the workers, while the employees blamed the airports of Thailand.”

Au continued with his grievance, saying…

“The state of affairs looked identical to playing a game to search out hotel logos. While they last was ordered randomly, with no alphabetical order and no directory. One counter had tons of hotel logos, and one employees was responsible for more than one resort. Even if Last chance may discover their hotel, they still had to stand like that, waiting for his or her queue to speak with the workers. This was thought-about to be only a first mission. More difficulties on this city awaits them. Foreigners won’t come back again if they need to face this.”

Many Thai netizens appreciated and shared his submit, with some saying they’d had comparable experiences. In the feedback part, Au stated he needed the individuals who launched the program to try using it themselves, so they might realise its issues and the chaos at the arrivals area of Thailand’s main airport.
Au ended his submit with a sarcastic remark, saying those who launched the program might never discover these issues, as they might have their own “convenient channels” to enter the nation..
