Thailand lifts all quarantine restrictions

Thailand will scrap all remaining quarantine measures for visitors from Wednesday. 

It is a move the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) believes will boost tourist arrival numbers.

It means unvaccinated travellers will no longer require any quarantine on arrival in Thailand. They must, however, show a negative test taken within 72 hours of their departure.

All foreign tourists must still register for the Thailand Pass before entering the country. 

"Fully vaccinated travellers must prepare a vaccination certificate and health insurance coverage worth at least US$10,000," a Government spokesman said. 

"Unvaccinated [or partially vaccinated] travellers must show a negative rapid antigen or RT-PCR test result taken within 72 hours of departure."

TAT reported that arrivals rose to about 20,000 per day from May 1-May 21 after the Test & Go scheme was scrapped, The Nation newspaper reported.

The largest number of visitors came from Singapore (45,961), followed by India (34,582), Malaysia (16,410) Vietnam (14,003) and Cambodia (13,917).

TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn expects about 500,000 foreign arrivals per month from now to September, mostly from India, the Middle East and Asean nations.

That number could rise to 1 million per month in the October-December high season when arrivals from the US and Europe surge.
