Tourists with valid Covid passport may soon be allowed to holiday in Thailand, PM suggests
Thailand is looking at scrapping its mandatory two-week Covid-19 quarantine for foreigners who can show they have been vaccinated against the virus, the countrys PM said in a bid to revive the nations hard-hit tourism industry.
Speaking after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said Thailand would look at allowing tourists who can produce vaccine certificates – so-called Covid passports – to skip the nation’s two-week quarantine program. Ocha said authorities will devise a scheme to keep track of the visitors.
Tourists are currently allowed to enter Thailand, but they need to prove they are free of coronavirus and undergo three Covid-19 tests during the mandatory quarantine period of two weeks.
