Covid UPDATE: 264 deaths, provincial totals | News by ThaigerCovid UPDATE: 264 deaths, provincial totals | News by ThaigerCovid UPDATE: 264 deaths, provincial totals | News by ThaigerCovid UPDATE: 264 deaths, provincial totals | News by Thaiger• The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has warned Thai citizens without permanent residency in the US to avoid travelling to the country via the Schengen Area (EU), due to Covid restrictions, according to the NBT.

Thanee Saengrat said the US government has put in place Covid restrictions for people travelling to the US from the Schengen Area. It has suspended travel to the US by foreign nationals who were physically present in any Schengen Area country in the 14 days preceding entry or attempted entry into the US.

“Thai citizens should avoid travelling to the US via Schengen Area countries, unless they have permanent residency or are members of US families, as airlines may not allow them to board their flights. Those with unavoidable trips are strongly urged to contact the US embassy in Thailand for advice before they travel.”

• Another round of free Covid-19 vaccinations for expats was announced yesterday, this time with the option of receiving the Pfizer vaccine. Bangkok Hospital in Phuket made the announcement stating that they would be providing expats the free vaccines in partnership with the Department of Disease Control, but they would only be offering inoculation for those who have never received any Covid-19 vaccines before.

The announcement allowed registration until Friday, September 3, but the date of vaccination has yet to be set. In fact, the notice warns that registration is just a survey to calculate interest and does not guarantee Bangkok Hospital will be able to procure enough vaccines for all expats in need.
