By November 1, 2021, Thailand plans to allow fully vaccinated tourists without any quarantine
The Prime Minister of Thailand, Prayut Chan-o-cha made a nation wide address to instruct the various departments to work towards this directive.
“Initially, we will begin with at least 10 countries on our low-risk, no-quarantine list, including the United Kingdom, Singapore, Germany, China, and the United States of America, and enlarge that list by 1st December, and by 1st of January, move to a very extensive list.”
“Other countries have begun to ease their travel restrictions on their citizens. With these developments, we must act quickly but still cautiously, and not miss the opportunity to entice some of the year-end and new year holiday season travelers during the next few months to support the many millions of people who earn a living from our tourism, travel and entertainment sectors as well as the many other related sectors.”
“Visitors will need to show that they are COVID-free at their time of travel with an RT-PCR test undertaken before they leave their home country, and do a test in Thailand.
“By 1st December, we will also consider allowing the consumption of alcoholic beverages in restaurants as well as the operation of entertainment venues.”
” We are currently administering more than 700,000 shots a day, and sometimes even exceed one million shots a day.”
“In the last one-and-half years, we have lived with some of the greatest peacetime challenges our country has ever faced in its history, brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, and one that has left nobody untouched and no country in the world undamaged.
“The threat of a large-scale, lethal spread of the virus in Thailand is now diminishing, even though the risk of resurgence is always there.
“The time has come for us to ready ourselves to face the coronavirus and live with it as with other endemic infections and diseases, much as we have learnt to live with other diseases with treatments and vaccinations,” said Prayut.
He also added that all that visitors will need to do is to show that they are COVID-free at their time of travel with an RT-PCR test undertaken before they leave their home country, and do a test in Thailand.
“Visitors from countries not on the list will of course still be much welcomed, but with quarantine and other requirements.
