Bangkok: Thailand will resume its quarantine-free travel scheme for fully-vaccinated inbound visitors from next month, it was announced on Thursday.
The scheme was suspended from December 22 after seven weeks of its launch due to the fast-spreading Covid-19 variant Omicron.
Beginning February 1, fully-vaccinated visitors could be able to enter without quarantine requirements as long as they take RT-PCR tests on the first and fifth days of their arrival in Thailand, Taweesin Visanuyothin of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration said.
Visitors should wait for their test results at their booked hotels and agree to download an app tracking their whereabouts, according to Taweesin.
He said infections in Thailand are considered to be at a manageable level and expected to be stabilizing and going into a declining trend.
The move came amid the government’s efforts to revive the tourism sector and boost economic recovery.
