Thailand Reopens 37 Border Checkpoints For Cross-Border Cargo Transport

BANGKOK, June 30 (NNN-TNA) – Thailand will reopen checkpoints on the border with all neighbouring states, to resume cross-border cargo transport and trading from July 1, according to the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), chaired by Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha.

CCSA decided to reopen a total of 37 checkpoints on the borders with Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia, so that cargoes can be transported and traders can be allowed to cross the border, said CCSA spokesman, Thaweesilp Visanuyothin.

That is part of the phase-5 easing of Thailand’s lock-down measures against the pandemic.

The Thai border checkpoints, which will be reopened, include 14 connected with Laos, eight with Myanmar, seven with Cambodia and eight with Malaysia, according to the CCSA spokesman.

However, tourists from the neighbouring countries are not allowed to enter Thailand via those border checkpoints.– NNN-TNA
