Thailand’s Tourism Sector Seeks to Reopen Country by 1 July
The #OpenThailandSafely campaign was launched on 2 March with the support of over 15 major companies. The Open Thailand Safely campaign has laid out its arguments in a petition which will underpin a formal request to the Royal Thai Government to respond favourably to the rollout of Covid-19 vaccination programmes underway in Europe, the USA and other Thailand tourism source markets. The campaign argues that 1 July is an appropriate date
to ensure the safe reopening of Thailand. Thai Government may require, for example, include showing officially recognised proof of a Covid-19 vaccination from their home country, purchasing health insurance, showing proof of a negative Covid test within 72 hours of departure, and so on.”
The inbound international tourism sector in Thailand says vaccines are a game-changer that allows for the reopening of the country and for quarantine requirements to be dropped.

Government spokeswoman Dr Apisamai Srirangsan was full of the joys of spring yesterday as she announced nothing but good news. Even Songkran would be going ahead, in masks.

BANGKOK (NNT) – The start of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Thailand has sparked optimism of an economic recovery. The Prime Minister said today that the government has continued to put measures in place to help affected people while reassuring the general public the country’s financial stability remains good. According to the Prime Minister, Thailand’s confidence rating is high due to high international reserves, and good fiscal discipline and stability.
Vaccine for anyone available!
Sources in the Thai business media have suggested that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will likely soon give approval for private hospitals to offer their own Covid-19 vaccinations. The hospitals say there is huge demand – as much as 10 million doses – for people to pay rather than wait for the government to get its act together and jab people for free.
BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thailand’s tourism minister said on Thursday he will propose a plan for foreigners to undertake COVID-19 quarantine in popular tourist areas, including beach resorts, in a bid to help revive the country’s struggling tourism sector. The hotel quarantine plan is expected to start in April or May in the provinces of Phuket, Krabi, Surat Thani, Chonburi and Chiang Mai, Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn told reporters after meeting with tourism operators and health officials. Tourists would be quarantined for two weeks but if they test negative after three days they will be allowed out of their rooms in the hotel area, before travelling to other parts of the country, Phiphat said.
