Vaccinated against Covid-19? You might be able to enter Thailand by July. The country’s tourism officials are now working on a plan to allow foreign tourists who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus to enter the country by the third quarter of 2021. The Tourism Authority of Thailand is waiting for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration to relax certain travel restrictions.

Vaccinated travellers are likely to be exempt from certain travel requirements, but may still need a health check and Fit-to-Fly document. So far, 42 airlines have agreed to the International Air Transport Association’s Travel Pass which would allow vaccinated travallers to enter countries without undergoing quarantine, according to TAT deputy governor for Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas, Siripakorn Cheawsamoot. Some of those airlines include Thai Airways, Thai Smile, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, British Airways and Emirates Airways.

All of the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s offices in various countries are now monitoring vaccination campaigns as well as travel guidelines to assist TAT in setting its own travel guidelines for Thailand, according to TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn.

“We have always been focused on the demand for foreign tourists after the Covid-19 crisis made it impossible to travel internationally. Some markets have already reserved travel packages in advance. Thailand travel packages are receiving good attention, such as in the Chinese market. A decision is awaited from the Chinese government to allow tourists to leave the country.”
