The Thailand Sandbox has seen plans for the end to quarantine for vaccinated foreign tourists to Phuket from July and 10 further areas from October. Now, despite an ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, the country has pledged to push on with the plans.
Deputy government spokeswoman Traisulee Traisoranakul has said that the country plans to waive its mandatory quarantine for vaccinated visitors to Bangkok and other top tourist destinations from October.
Although we are still waiting further details it seems that the country is committing to its plan to attract between 3 and 4 million foreign visitors by the end of the year. There is the understanding that this is only possibly through removing compulsory quarantine for visitors and easing other restrictions.
The plans however still require at least 70% of local residents receiving both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine prior to relaxing restrictions. The country expects 10 to 20 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to be delivered in the second half of 2021.
