Thailand To Permit Fully-Vaccinated Travellers From 5 Countries

(Last Updated On: 2021-10-14)


Fully-vaccinated travelers from five countries will be allowed to enter Thailand without having to go into quarantine as of Nov.1, Thai authorities confirmed.

Tourists from the following five Countries: China, U.S., Britain, Singapore and Germany will only have to prove they have tested negative for Covid-19 using a PCR test, according to Covid Crisis Centre (CCSA) spokesperson, Taweesilp Visanuyothin, on Thursday.

Seventeen of Thailand provinces will be available to tourists, including all of Bangkok, all of Krabi and Phangnga.

Chiang Rai, Mae Hong Son, Lamphun, Phrae, Sukhothai and another 16 major provinces are due to reopen on Dec.1

Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha said many countries want their citizens visit Thailand and that will be a small start for people to resume earning a living.

The authorities also announced further easing of measures that apply in many places nationwide.

“Night-time curfew restrictions are to be reduced as of Oct.16, running from 11pm to 3am rather than 10pm to 4am, allowing restaurants and shopping malls to return to longer opening hours.

“Thailand’s tourism sector has been almost entirely shut down for more than 18 months and caused a total loss of income for many people.

“In 2020 Thailand was seen as a model for beating the coronavirus pandemic but since April the country has been battling its most severe wave of cases yet.

“Infection numbers in the country of 70 million people are now slowly going down.’’
