Sawasdee! Thailand to welcome back international tourists starting October 1


- Advertisment -

Foreign tourists will be allowed to re-enter Thailand starting October 1, provided they’re willing to spend several weeks in the country and stick to designated areas only. 

“I have asked the prime minister for approval to set October 1 as the date to allow (inbound) tourists to enter. I also have requested to use Phuket as a pilot model… and have received approval from the Centre for Economic Situation Administration,” Thailand’s Minister of Tourism Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said in a public forum. 

The initiative of the country is dubbed as ‘Safe and Sealed’. If this becomes successful, it will be expanded to other destinations. 

Tourists will be initially permitted to enter the largest island in the country, Phuket. They will be quarantined in a designated resort for 14 days. 

Foreign tourists will be required to get tested for Covid-19 at the beginning and end of their quarantine period. Once they get a negative test result, then will be allowed to travel on the island.
