Despite the lifting of the ban, travel restrictions remain put in place as the Covid-19 situations are still severe in other countries.

The announcement came after the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration yesterday approved some foreign travels to the country including business travelers and foreigners with spouses, work permits or residency in the country.

Foreign travelers, who are allowed to enter the kingdom also include those who need medical treatment in Thailand, students of Thai educational institutions as well as their parents.


Other groups are individuals in diplomatic missions, international organizations and foreign government agencies working in Thailand as well as their spouses or children, who are approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or permitted under a special arrangement with a foreign country.

Incoming travellers are required to comply with disease control rules in accordance with the capacity of Thai authorities in conducting screening processes and providing them quarantine facilities. (TNA)
