Foreign crew changes in Thailand possible?

Additional groups of foreigners will be allowed to enter Thailand from tomorrow (July 1), the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) announced on Monday (June 29).
There’s one category of foreigners allowed to enter Thailand, which may embrace foreign crews and allow crew changes:
6. Transporters of necessary products, who must leave the country immediately after their work is done.
Advise managers and owners contact their Thai agents to clarify. If crew changes are indeed, possible, it may well be, that Thailand option is preferable to those of Singapore, South Korea, Japan, for at least one reason – “pandemic”-era Thailand in general, isn’t as insane as abovementioned countries, in dealing with Chinese virus hoax.
