Thailand to End Quarantine for all Travellers by October 1st, 2021

Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) spokesman reports from Oct 1, quarantine will not be required in some areas of Thailand. Above all based on the condition that that over 70% of health workers in the area have been vaccinated and people who are likely to be in contact with at-risk people have received the covid-19 vaccine.

Initially, arrivals to those areas must come from low-risk covid-19 countries and have had vaccinations.

Dr Taweesilp said the CCSA yesterday approved the three-stage roadmap covering zoning, vaccination and quarantine, aimed at returning the country to normalcy from Oct 1. The CCSA also agreed to extend the emergency decree for two more months to the end of May.

For the zoning roadmap, from April 1 to June 30, Samut Sakhon province, which is now categorised as a maximum and strict control area or “red zone” will be changed to a control area, known as an “orange zone”.

Currently, there are eight orange zone provinces. They are Bangkok, Samut Prakan, Samut Songkhram, Nonthaburi, Nakhon Pathom, Pathum Thani, Tak, and Ratchaburi.

Most provinces, or 54 in the country, are now under surveillance or “green zones” where most businesses are allowed to operate as normal but with limits on how many people can gather.

In the second stage which covers the period from July 1 to Sept 30, all provinces in the country should return to the “new normal”, meaning that some activities would may be still restricted and social-distancing rules will remain.

For vaccinations, from April 1 to June 30, two million Covid-19 vaccine doses of Sinovac are due to arrive in the country.

AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine

Covid-19 vaccinations in Thailand will be given to healthcare workers, people with congenital diseases, people aged 60 years and over, and disease control staff who are likely to be in contact with Covid-19 patients.

Some 26 million vaccine doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine are scheduled to arrive to Thailand in the second stage of July 1 to Sept 30.

The jabs will be given to people in the tourism sector, people who travel frequently such as pilots; cabin crew and businessmen, the general public, diplomats and workers in industrial and service sectors.

In addition, 35 million more doses are to arrive in the third stage which begins on Oct 1.

From April 1 to June 30, people in quarantine will be allowed to exercise in fitness rooms and outdoors, swim, cycle in closed areas and buy food from outside. From Oct 1 (the third stage), inbound travellers are required to have only documentation of their Covid-19 negative status with them.
