Thailand is set to reduce the quarantine period of 14 to seven days for visiting foreigners who have been vaccinated against Covid-19, Reuters reported.
The new policy will start in April, Health Minister Anutin Charnvirankul announced on Monday, Mar. 8.
He further said that vaccinations must be administered within three months of the travel period, and visitors will be required to produce negative Covid-19 test results.
As for those who have not received the vaccine, but have Covid-19 free certificates, they would be quarantined for 10 days, he added.
Does not apply to certain travellers
The new policy, however, does not apply to travellers from Africa, who will still be required to quarantine for two weeks, due to concerns about other Covid-19 virus strains.
