Other Lifted Restrictions:

As the positive cases of Covid-19 are decreasing, masks are not compulsory anymore. From 1 July 2022, masks are not a mandate in the outdoors. They recommended wearing it for their own’s safety and in crowded places.

Another rule that will no longer be in action from the next month is the travel insurance. Foreign travellers had to purchase travel insurance for a trip to Thailand. With a decline in cases and ease of restrictions, this will not be a necessity anymore from the aforementioned date. Also, the country is finally extending the hours at restaurants, bars, and pubs.

Rules To Follow?

The important guideline to follow while taking an international trip to Thailand is to either undergo a Covid test after reaching the country or carry their vaccination certificates. CCSA spokesperson Taweesin Visanuyothin shared that travellers with suspicious cases will need to do an antigen test. The symptoms of an antigen test are related to respiratory issues. Also, if anyone is arranging something for over 2000 guests and people, letting the infectious disease committee in the provinces or Bangkok know about it is important.
