Thailand is set to reinstate their country’s Covid-19 requirements for all international travellers looking to enter the country, according to the Thai Minister of Transport, Saksayam Chidchob.
The restrictions will begin on 9 January and until 31 January.
Foreign travellers above 18 will need to show proof that they have received 2 doses of the vaccine, or that they have recovered from Covid for no more than 180 days.
Travellers who are unvaccinated will need a medical report detailing the reasons.
Persons without these documents will be refused entry, and those who display Covid symptoms will be advised to get tested for the virus upon their arrival.
Travellers must also have documentation of health insurance coverage for Covid treatment if their next destination country required a negative Covid-19 test result.
Thailand previously got rid of their entry requirements into the country in October last year, where international tourists can enter without proof of vaccination, antigen test results and health insurance.
The reinstatement of the rules comes in the wake of China reopening its borders today, with Thailand being one of the top destinations for Chinese tourists.
