This pandemic has affected the tourism industry around the world. Many countries rely on tourism and one of them is Thailand which is always bustling with foreigners in the streets and hotels. There is never a month when you will not find the streets full of visitors shopping and enjoying the street food.
To retain its tourism industry, Thailand has a plan for reopening aimed for international visitors would want to stay for a while with a catch!
“The country is offering a special tourist visa for 90 days for which you will have to quarantine on arrival”. However, after quarantine visitors will be free to move around the country.
If you are worried about quarantine, don’t be because the Thai government will give the visitors the option of quarantining at a number of luxury properties, including the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel and the Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok.
After their initial approval, visitors will be allowed to renew their visas twice, making it possible for them to stay for 270 days or about nine months. But interested travellers may need to take action quickly as the government plans to issues just 1,200 of these visas each month. The only thing which is unclear is that the Thai government has not mentioned yet if visitors will need to undergo COVID test. Wonder whats the next step?
