BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): Ministers at Tuesday’s (March 30) Cabinet meeting approved the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA)’s plan to reopen the country with seven-day quarantine for foreign travellers.

The plan reduces the quarantine period to seven days for fully vaccinated tourists in Phuket, Krabi, Phang Nga, Pattaya and Chiang Mai, said government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri.

From July 1, vaccinated tourists can visit Phuket without undergoing quarantine.

From Oct 1, the quarantine measure will be lifted in Krabi, Phang Nga, Pattaya and Chiang Mai.

According to the plan’s timeline, Thailand will lift all quarantine restrictions on foreign travellers next year, Anucha said. - The Nation/Asia News Network
