The Thai government has released its latest guidelines and requirements for foreign tourists wanting to enter Thailand.
From 1 April, foreign tourists who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are only required to undergo 7 days of quarantine.
Travellers who have not yet been vaccinated are required to undergo 10 days of quarantine, while travellers from some African countries are still required to undergo 14 days of mandatory quarantine, such as Botswana; Cameroon; Congo; Ghana; Kenya; Mozambique; Rwanda; South Africa; Tanzania; Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
According to a post in the Royal Thai Government Gazette, vaccinated tourists need to be able to prove they have been vaccinated with “a vaccine, approved, and registered with the MoPH or approved by the WHO, no less than 14 days before the travelling date”.
“However, they must be from countries with no mutated strain of SAR-CoV-2 virus as announced and constantly updated by the MoPH”.
