With Covid-19 travel restrictions – slowly – easing up, 10 international airlines have started selling flights to Thailand, the Ministry of Transport announced.

The airlines include: Emirates, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, Swissair, Austrian Airlines, Eva Air and KLM.

Don’t get too excited. It’s still not easy to get into Thailand. All international arrivals must go through a mandatory 14 day quarantine with Covid-19 testing as well as other requirements set by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration.

Thailand recently introduced the Special Tourist Visa which allows a 90 day stay that can be renewed twice, adding up to about 9 months. Tourists will still need to go through a 14 day quarantine period, either at a state facility or at an alternative state quarantine (ASQ) accommodation. The first group of 41 people on the visa, travelling from China, are set to arrive in Bangkok today. They will be the first international tourists to arrive since travel restrictions were imposed in late-March.
