I have this feeling that because the Chinese aren't coming until high season 2022, the Thai Government will soon change their tune. The days of "Travel Bubbles" and "Greenlanes" were only relevant in the days before vaccines, when countries (like my own) were pushing for suppression and elimination of the virus. Delta changed all that. In reality, the only criteria should be a PCR Test 72 hours prior to arrival and full vaccination. As these conditions apply to whoever gets on a plane, there is no need for a list of accepted countries. It's a farcical concept. I think is reality it exists only to keep the Thai people calm about international tourists coming. It certainly isn't based on any scientific grounds.

I thought you were going to say a beaver curry had something to do with fish (referring to a different plaice).

If a tourist is fully vaccinated it should not matter which country they come from. Furthermore they will be tested on arrival. So this list of low risk countries is B.S.
