Pattaya-area governments have begun issuing certificates allowing people to make “essential” trips outside locked-down Chonburi.
Certificates are being issued at Pattaya City Hall from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and the Banglamung District Office from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Chonburi is one of five provinces regulated with the strictest coronavirus-control measures, along with Rayong, Chanthaburi, Trat and Samut Sakhon. Only travel deemed essential is allowed outside the Chonburi borders.
To apply, those seeking to travel must bring government-issued identification, two copies of the completed application, and documents justifying the need for the trip, such as a medical-appointment slip, purchase order, or a letter from an employer. Applications must be filed at least 48 hours in advance.
Applicants with smartphones also are encouraged to download the Mor Chana contact-tracing app.
