Thailand has confirmed that international visitors would have to remain in the island nation for a longer time beginning in October.
The announcement was made recently by a government official as the government aims to improve the tourism industry, which is the country’s key source of revenue.
According to the news, the Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Yuthasak Supasorn has announced that visitors visiting Thailand will now have to stay for a minimum time of 30 days, including a quarantine duration of 14 days near their hotel. After the quarantine has finished, visitors will travel to visit other places.
The decision was made after the authorities had postponed proposals to create travel bubbles with partner countries, as COVID-19 cases in Asia increased.
As a guideline, from 1 October, tourists will undergo two Coronavirus checks during quarantine until they can fly freely around Phuket, as the Minister of Tourism and Sports, Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, has told the public.
After that, tourists can receive an additional examination and remain in the province for one more week, and then pass across Thailand.
Thailand was able to regulate Coronavirus very effectively. In around three months, there is no reported case of local transmission of COVID-19.
