The “Land of Smiles” is happy and thrilled to welcome visitors so they may quickly revisit all of Thailand’s well-loved tourist spots.
This week, when the government finishes its statewide COVID-19 Emergency Decree, the last of Thailand’s pandemic-related travel restrictions will be lifted.
According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, visitors won’t need to present proof of immunization or a negative test result in order to enter the country starting on October 1. Thailand has reclassified COVID-19 from “a serious communicable illness” to “a communicable disease under monitoring,” prompting the decision.
The new regulations make it even easier for everyone to enjoy Amazing Thailand’s colorful culture, delectable cuisine, and stunning natural surroundings. The TAT New York office director and acting director of the TAT Toronto office, Santi Sawangcharoen, made the announcement in a statement. “We’re confident that simplifying the arrival procedure would inspire visitors to plan their visits, leading to a return to Thailand’s tourism,” he added. The “Land of Smiles” is happy and thrilled to welcome visitors so they may quickly revisit all of Thailand’s well-loved tourist spots.
Thailand will eliminate the limitations put in place during the epidemic and increase the 30-day visa-free stay limit to 45 days.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand has said that the new visa regulations will be in place from October 1 until March 31, 2023.
Thailand opened its doors to foreign visitors for the first time in July 2021 as part of the Phuket Sandbox initiative. Travel was later expanded, and with the discovery of the omicron version, border controls were once again tightened. Early this year, the government reinstated the “Test & Go Thailand Pass” program, which enables immunized foreign travelers to travel to any area of the nation without passing through quarantine.
Currently, entry into the nation requires visitors to present proof of immunization or evidence of a negative test performed within 72 hours of arrival. The newest nation to relax limitations is Thailand.
All remaining pandemic-era restrictions were repealed by Australia in July, while adjacent New Zealand did the same earlier this month. While Hong Kong has loosened travel restrictions by removing its necessary 3-day hotel quarantine, Japan likewise intends to resume accepting independent visitors in October.
