Thailand full reopening announced

Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has announced plans to allow fully vaccinated visitors from low-risk countries to enter the kingdom without quarantine from Nov 1. Details of the plans and a full list of countries that will be allowed to enter Thailand without quarantine is expected to follow. 

Foreign visitors from the approved countries will need to show a negative PCR-test before traveling and would only need one further PCR-test upon arriving in Thailand.

The number of destinations opened to tourists will also be expanded. Tourists can already enter Phuket and parts of Surat Thani, Phangnga and Krabi. Other provinces will be opened in November and December.

A new web-based application called the Thailand Pass system is being developed to replace the certificate of entry (CoE). 

More news and information can be found on the newsroom of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
