Thailand Will Lift The Quarantine From June

Raise your hand if you were waiting to visit your favorite country, Thailand. If so, there is good news for you! From June 1, Thailand will welcome all unvaccinated or partially vaccinated foreign tourists without quarantine on arrival. The Thailand Tourism Authority (TAT) predicts that out of 20,000 foreign tourists per month, there will be 5 lakh tourists per month who will visit Thailand after the quarantine is lifted.

Thailand had reopened some destinations for foreign tourists

In addition, the Covid task force, led by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha, has decided to extend the national state of emergency to manage the Covid-19 outbreak for two months until the end of May, Chote said. Thailand has taken this step to restart tourism as countries from Australia to the Philippines to Indonesia join nations opening their borders after more than two years.

If you are a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio, you must have seen his famous movie The Beach. It was shot in Maya Bay in Thailand, a bay on the beach. The good news is that it started receiving tourists on January 1, 2022. The place became overcrowded and this destroyed the coral reef’s natural ecosystem. It was forced to close in 2018. And while Maya Bay will reopen for tourists, only 300 tourists will be able to dock in the bay at a time. The time will be between 10:00 and 16:00 every day and each tourist will have a one-hour window to explore it. In addition to Maya Bay, Thailand has also added Krabi, Phang Nga and Koh Samui to the vaccinated foreign tourist visa program.

How does Thailand welcome vaccinated travelers?

To accommodate vaccinated tourists at the exciting destination, Thailand has implemented a four-step plan. The first phase involves fully vaccinated tourists entering the country via Phuket, Phang Nga, Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Krabi. Tourists will be tested on arrival and will need to use a government tracking app. Proof of vaccination approved by the World Health Organization and a tested negative Covid certificate must be presented 72 hours before departure.
