BANGKOK (NNT) – Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha has made additional clarifications about Thailand’s lifting of quarantine for foreign tourists from 46 countries and territories starting on November 1.
Gen. Prayut provided the details on his Facebook page, explaining that the ‘country reopening’ initiative initially targeted visitors from 10 countries but further assessment of the situation produced the realization that more needs to be done to convince would-be tourists from deciding to travel elsewhere. Resulting from discussions with relevant bodies, the first list of low-risk countries whose people may travel into Thailand without being subjected to quarantine has been expanded to 46 countries. Each traveler must be fully vaccinated, get tested for COVID-19 before they depart, enter Thailand by air, and get tested once more upon arrival. This entry protocol takes effect on November 1.
