Thai officials have confirmed that the country will start to ease quarantine restrictions and open its borders from this summer to tourists that are fully-vaccinated.
Phuket will lead the easing of restrictions and will start to welcome guests from 1st July 2021. From this point, the requirement to quarantine will be entirely removed on the Island. In preparation for the easing of restrictions, residents of Phuket are being prioritised for the vaccine with the authorities aiming to vaccinate 70% of the population before visitors start arriving.
The popular tourist island of Phuket will be the first destination in the country to welcome international travellers and will be followed in October with Krabi, Phangnga, Koh Samui, Chonburi (Pattaya) and Chiang Mai all lifting restrictions.
Entry into Thailand will be conditional upon travellers staying in the country for a minimum of seven days. All visitors entering the country will still have to take a Covid-19 test on arrival at their hotel. All other destinations in Thailand will still be subject to a seven day mandatory quarantine on arrival.
Chiravadee Khunsub, director of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) London said “Thailand’s priority is to make tourism safe for both tourists and locals alike”.
“Phuket has been Covid-19 free for 90 days so it is a safe choice for UK travellers looking to get away this summer.”
