Vaccinated tourists entering Thailand from 1st October could face just 7 days quarantine under new plans under discussion in the country.
Last week we reported on on plans to reduce the hotel room quarantine to just three days, then allowing tourists to quarantine within the hotel for the remainder of the 14-day period.
Today news is coming out of Thailand that the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration are looking at proposals to reduce quarantine from October. It is believed that a decision will be made by the CCSA board, chaired by Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, at its meeting next Monday.
There are conflicting reports on what the reduction to quarantine could actually be. The Bangkok Post is saying that the reduction had not been confirmed. The Straits Times however has said that quarantine could reduce to 7-days for vaccinated travellers from as early as April and possibly be withdrawn altogether from October.
A #OpenThailandSafely campaign was launched last week with the aim to open borders to vaccinated travellers from 1st July. The Open Thailand Safely petition can be signed at the Open Thailand Safely website and you can follow the campaign on twitter by following @openthailandsa1 and the hashtag #OpenThailandSafely
