Thailand Is Opening Its Borders To Fully Vaccinated Travelers From All Countries
Previously, Thailand had to restrict travelers from certain countries from entering its borders. This all makes sense, as the Thai government needs to maintain the Covid-19 cases within the country without more imported cases coming in.
However, due to Thailand's tourism sector still struggling to recover from the pandemic, the Thai government decided to reduce the mandatory quarantine period from 14 days to just 7 at the original arrival destination. On top of that, fully vaccinated tourists from all over the world will be able to enter its borders as the 'approved countries' list has been removed!
"This means Thailand is now welcoming travellers from any country in the world to the sandbox program," the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced.
We're hoping Malaysia can soon join in to travel over to Thailand. According to PM Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Malaysian will be able travel abroad by December 2021, but this also depends on the vaccination rate by then.
