Thailand Adopted New Rules For Foreign Visitors

BANGKOK, Thailand adopted a new requirement for foreign visitors, to show proof of at least two doses of the COVID-19 vaccination, government officials announced, yesterday.


Foreign arrivals are also required to have travel insurance that covers potential COVID-19-related expenses, in case their next destination requires a negative RT-PCR result, Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health minister, Anutin Charnvirakul, said.


Despite no requirements for COVID-19 testing prior to entering the country, those suffering from respiratory illnesses should postpone their visits until they have fully recovered, Anutin told the press.


Although Thailand’s COVID-19 situation was improving, intensive care patients and deaths were still being observed, Anutin said in a statement, issued on Wednesday.


From Dec 25 to Dec 31, the country had detected 2,111 COVID-19 cases, with 75 deaths.
