Thailand reopens to fully vaccinated travelers from 63 countries
Thailand has reopened to fully vaccinated tourists (from 63 countries), with tens of thousands of travellers expected to touch down in Bangkok and Phuket as the country reboots its tourism industry after 18 months of Covid restrictions. Previously, vaccinated tourists had to undergo at least seven days hotel quarantine. Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport and Phuket’s international terminal will be the first to receive visitors under the relaxation, with the rest of the country following suit, according to The Guardian.
Inoculated visitors from countries not on the list can travel to Bangkok and 16 other regions, but they will be confined to their initial destination for the first seven days before being allowed to travel elsewhere. The travel industry is already preparing for the Thai reopening. International carriers have scheduled more flights to the Southeast Asian nation, while hotels and beach resorts are offering bargains and the island of Phuket is hosting a New Year’s Eve party featuring Italian opera tenor Andrea Bocelli. Authorities in Bangkok lifted a six-month old ban on sale of alcohol in restaurants from Monday and eased several other COVID containment measures to draw tourists to the capital city, the gateway to Thailand, Fortune wrote.
