Thailand is considering easing quarantine rules for foreign visitors from next month

Published on : Monday, March 8, 2021

Thailand is considering easing quarantine rules for foreign visitors from next month as part of a series of steps for restoring the nation’s tourism sector, which is suffering for long from the pandemic.


The Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration would reflect on a proposal that will allow foreign visitors to leave their hotel rooms after three days of mandatory two-week quarantine. The so-called area hotel quarantine will still need tourists to confine themselves the hotels.


On Saturday, the quarantine relaxation was discussed at a meeting chaired by Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, and will primarily be considered for top five tourist destinations like Phuket and Krabi. The Covid panel will also discuss a proposal to waive the quarantine requirement for visitors who are vaccinated.


Thailand is placing a lot of trust and hope on tourism revival. The industry accounted for about a fifth of the country’s gross domestic product before the pandemic. The local tourism industry has urged mandatory quarantines to be lifted from as early as July 1 so that it can open to potentially millions of vaccinated visitors.
