Travel documents now required for 5 provinces hit hardest by Covid

Published

 on 

Travel documents are now being required for anyone travelling in and out of 5 central and eastern provinces in Thailand, the worst hit by the 2nd outbreak of Covid-19 around the country. The documents will need to state the reason for travel in the provinces of Samut Sakhon, Rayong, Chon Buri, Trat and Chanthaburi… all coded as red zones where “maximum control” is in place by authorities.

Such red zone areas have authorities discouraging people from travelling to and from the provinces until at least January 31 or when the Covid situation improves. However, if travellers have to visit those areas, they must apply for the documents and have the Mor Chana application installed on their mobile phones. Here are the links to download the app…

Authorities say travellers who want to visit the 5 provinces will face temperature screenings and symptom monitoring.

People who obtain the documents needed to travel must have district chiefs or directors, village heads, local administrative chiefs, administrative officials, and heads of all police stations sign off on the documents, granting their approval. Civil servants must have documents issued by their respective agencies.

Companies and organisations, where travel is necessary, must be in contact with the owners or heads of the agencies who are responsible for issuing the travel documents. And for people who travel on a regular basis to those provinces may ask for documents that remain valid for a specific period of time.

Anyone who wants to visit those 5 provinces must obtain the documents in their hometowns for roundtrip travels. The documents can be downloaded at http://www.moicovid.com

As of yesterday, Thailand has reported 10,053 infections since the pandemic began, with over half being attributed to the recent 2nd wave that started on December 20.
