Thailand has removed the final restrictions for international travelers from July 1, including the ‘Thailand Pass’ and $10,000 health insurance requirements to enter the country. Vaccinated travelers will only need to show proof of vaccination to enter. Unvaccinated travelers will still need proof of a negative PCR or professionally administered rapid test taken within 72 hours of arrival.
The announcement removes all the colour-coded zoning, thus redesignating Bangkok and all other 76 provinces a green zone. Outdoor mask-wearing has been endorsed as voluntary although the public are still advised to wear a face mask in crowded places, such as, public transport, markets, and concert venues, or for people with certain health conditions.
Restaurants and eateries are allowed to serve dine-in customers alcoholic beverages in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations, as well as communicable disease control guidelines.
To support the country’s reopening and to give travelers a snapshot of what they have been missing, Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has launched the ‘Time for Thailand’ travel campaign. From street food vendors and spa therapists to Tuk Tuk drivers, the people of Thailand are sending a clear message to guests across the globe that they are ready to welcome them back, an Anantara statement said.
