Thailand to simplify entry rules for tourists

Thai authorities will shorten the quarantine period for foreign tourists from seven to five days

including from Russia, and shorten the quarantine period from December 16. The Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) writes about this.

Now tourists arriving in the country under the sandbox program will have to stay in the territory of the selected province not seven days, but five.

In addition, those who have had the coronavirus will be allowed to enter for three months prior to travel. They must have with them a medical certificate of recovery or be vaccinated with at least the first component of the COVID-19 vaccine.

SHA + certificate. In this case, after five days, it is not necessary to undergo a second study – you can take an express test for antigens. Children under the age of six are exempt from taking a PCR test 72 hours before entering the kingdom.

Earlier in November, Apisamai Srirangson, spokeswoman for Thailand's COVID-19 Management Center (CCSA), warned tourists about fraud when booking hotels in the resort. Many SHA + certified hotels deliberately mislead guests and only sell accommodation to foreigners, she said. However, they are required to include in the price the transfer from the airport and the delivery of PCR tests.
