Skipping the mandatory quarantine
An at least 2-week mandatory quarantine required by most countries for visitors has put off travel plans worldwide and halted the travel industry.
According to National News Bureau of Thailand (NNT), Thailand Prime Minister Prayut-o-cha said on Tuesday, 23-Feb-2021 that his government will consider allowing tourists who are able to produce a vaccination certificate to skip the quarantine. However, a plan will still need to be put in place to track the visitors during their stay in Thailand.
In a separate report, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)’s deputy governor Siripakorn Cheawsamoot said that Thailand should have a plan on green passport by June to reopen the travel industry to international markets by forth quarter this year.
