Earlier this month we reported on the latest entry requirements for tourists travelling to Thailand including the approved vaccine list.
Tourists entering the country who had received all doses of an approved vaccine, at least 14 days prior to travel, can undertake a reduced 7-day quarantine on arrival.
At that time only the AstraZeneca/Oxford, Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, Serum Institute of India and Sinovac vaccines were accepted.
The country has now confirmed that the Johnson & Johnson, Sinopharm and SK Bioscience vaccines would be accepted.
Thailand has been working hard to make the country more attractive to tourists while ensuring that the risk of infection remains as low as possible.
Quarantine periods of 14-days were very unpopular with most tourists and it is hoped that the reduction in quarantine from April will help to bring in more tourists.
The current plans are for quarantine requirements to be dropped entirely for vaccinated travellers from July in Phuket and from October in five other provinces.
A widespread Covid outbreak has however raised questions if the plans will go ahead as planned. New daily infections are at the highest rate in the country since the start of the pandemic with a record high of 1,335 reported today.
