Thailand to dismiss remaining pandemic rules

 Wednesday, September 28, 2022 


Thailand will dismiss its remaining pandemic-related travel restrictions this week, ending its countrywide COVID-19 Emergency Decree.

Effective from Oct. 1, the Southeast Asian country will no longer need travelers to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result to enter. The verdict comes with Thailand reclassifying COVID-19 from a precarious communicable disease to a communicable disease under observation.

The new rules also simplify the capability for all to take pleasure in the lively culture, food and natural beauty of Amazing Thailand. By easing the arrival process, travelers would be eager to plan their visits, causing a rebirth in Thailand’s tourism, said Santi Sawangcharoen, the director of the TAT New York office and stand-in director of the TAT Toronto office.

Sawangcharoen said that “The ‘Land of Smiles’ is keen and happy to welcome travelers to enjoy the cherished destinations across Thailand like they used to before.

Besides dismissing pandemic-time restrictions, Thailand will also lengthen the time that visa-exempt travelers can halt in the country from 30 to 45 days. Travelers from the US would not need a visa to enter, as per the U.S. Embassy and Consulate in Thailand.

The new visa rules will be in force from Oct. 1 through March 31, 2023, said the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

Thailand first started greeting overseas tourists in July 2021 as part of a Phuket Sandbox program before expanding travel.
