THAILAND REOPENING TO TOURISTS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
On June 25, 2020, the Government of Thailand approved a draft plan for relaxed measures for foreigners entering Thailand, which could see the reopening of international tourism as of August 1, 2020.
Thailand's draft plan includes three phases of reopening:
1.Phase One: Business travelers, investors, skilled workers, people with Thai family members, teachers, etc. (Starting July 1)
2.Phase Two: Medical tourism travelers (Starting July 1)
3.Phase Three: General tourists (Starting August 1)
The proposed reopening plan also includes details on how the Thai government will control the virus.
Included in the reopening plan are health and entry requirement protocols like:
*Travelers arriving with travel health insurance that also covers covid
A pre-screening health declaration card filled out before departure
*The wearing of masks mandatory on in-bound flights and in the airport
*Thermal scans and temperature checks upon arrival
*The proposed plan does not yet clarify if mandatory testing will be done.
Thailand's Airports Reopening
Six of Thailand's international airports are reopening on July 1st, handling both domestic and international arrivals. (Don Mueang, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Chiang Rai, and Suvarnabhumi)
The Thai government has published an infographic (shown above) to inform passengers on the new health protocols happening at the airports.
Medical Tourism Thailand
In the proposed plan, Medical Tourism is set to resume a full 30-days before general tourism, starting July 1.
The Ministry of Public Health states Thailand receives over 2.5 million medical tourists per year, making it a very large group to consider giving early access.
Thailand is now issuing an International Flight Permit, effective July 1, which gives certain tourists and non-nationals the ability to have first access to the country.
One thousand foreign travelers will be allowed entry to Thailand per day without the need for a 14-day quarantine, according to an implementation plan for “travel bubbles” to be submitted for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA)'s approval.
These visitors, who in the beginning will be mostly business travelers and patients seeking medical treatment in Thailand, must come as part of bilateral cooperation on tourism between Thailand and selected countries which have managed to contain Covid-19 Traisuree Taisaranakul, deputy government spokeswoman, said on Sunday.
General foreign tourists will later be allowed to visit Thailand if the tourism promotion programme proves successful in terms of the transmission control.
