8 January 2022 (Readers 793)


Persons who have already received QR code under the Test and Go scheme may still travel to Thailand as scheduled until further notice, according to the decision made by the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

The CCSA on 7 January 2022 also decided to extend the suspension of the Test & Go no-quarantine scheme for air travelers, after it had decided on 21 December 2021 to close temporarily registration for travelers wishing to enter Thailand under this scheme and the Sandbox entry scheme, with the exception of Phuket Sandbox. The objective was to curb the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant.

Starting from 11 January, three more Sandbox destinations will be opened in Krabi, Phang-nga, and Surat Thani (only Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan, and Ko Tao), in addition to Phuket.

The eight provinces designated as pilot tourism areas remain unchanged. They include Bangkok, Chon Buri, Kanchanaburi, Krabi, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Phang-nga, and Phuket. More COVID-19 measures will be implemented in pilot tourism areas. For instance, restaurants are allowed to serve alcoholic beverages until 21.00 hr.

The closure of entertainment places, pubs, bars, and karaoke venues will continue. Various organizations have also been urged to extend the "work from home measure until 31 January 2022, but this measure must not affect public services.

Thailand has carried out strict measures against COVID-19, under the campaign V-U-C-A (Vaccination, Universal Prevention, COVID Free Setting, and Antigen Test Kit). The CCSA will constantly adapt the measures as necessary to effectively contain the disease. The public has been encouraged have confidence in Thailands public health system and its handling of the COVID-19 situation.
