Thailand to Open for Those Vaccinated

The Land of Smiles, beautiful beaches and magnificent temples, Thailand is looking to be the first country to remove quarantine requirements and open its borders to fully vaccinated travellers from this summer!

From July, the popular tourist island of Phuket will be the first destination in the country to welcome international travellers and from October, Krabi, Phangnga, Koh Samui, Chonburi (Pattaya) and Chiang Mai will ease restrictions.

Residents of Phuket are being prioritised to receive the vaccine aiming for 70% of the population to be vaccinated prior to tourism returning.

Travellers are required to take a Covid-19 test on arrival at their hotel and stay for at least seven days at the point of entry (i.e. Phuket) before travelling onwards around Thailand.

“Thailand’s priority is to make tourism safe for both tourists and locals alike,” said Chiravadee Khunsub, director of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) London.

“From July 1st quarantine will not be required for UK travellers visiting Phuket on the basis they’ve been fully vaccinated and test negative for Covid-19.”

“Phuket has been Covid-19 free for 90 days so it is a safe choice for UK travellers looking to get away this summer.”
