In the middle of the main travel season, Thailand had tightened entry rules due to the relaxation of the corona virus in China.

Now the roll comes backwards.

Update from Tuesday, January 10, 2023, 8:25 a.m .:

Bangkok – Thailand has withdrawn the tightening of entry rules due to the relaxation of the corona virus in China.

As quoted by the Bangkok Post Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul, the new rules according to which visitors had to provide proof of at least two vaccinations against the corona virus are no longer valid.

Roll backwards: Thailand is not tightening corona entry rules after all

This was preceded by protests from tour operators.

They had warned at the weekend that stricter entry rules would deter many holidaymakers and stand in the way of the desired recovery of the Thai tourism industry.

In addition, such a sudden rule change is harmful to Thailand's image, emphasized the Phuket Tourism Association.

First report from Friday, January 6, 2023, 11:34 a.m .:

Bangkok – Thailand, one of the favorite travel destinations of Germans, has tightened its entry rules due to the corona pandemic.

This was announced by the Ministry of Health in Bangkok on Thursday, as reported by the

dpa

news agency .

The reason for the tightening of entry rules in Thailand is the relaxed Chinese corona policy.

Since the upcoming entry rules in Thailand will affect all foreigners, German tourists will also face obstacles when traveling to Thailand due to the corona pandemic.

This is reported by Kreiszeitung.de.

Germany has also tightened the entry rules due to the Chinese corona policy.

Corona: Stricter entry rules for tourists in Thailand - visitors must be vaccinated twice

In the future, visitors from abroad will have to prove that they have been vaccinated against the corona virus at least twice, according to Thai Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul.

So if you are not fully vaccinated or even not vaccinated against Covid-19, you have to expect that you will be turned away at the border.

Therefore there are no alternative entry rules in Thailand - for example the presentation of a negative PCR test or similar.

Anyone who wants to travel from Thailand to a country that requires a negative corona test for entry must also provide proof of health insurance, it said.

This is to ensure that possible treatment costs would be covered in the event of a positive PCR test in Thailand, the

Bangkok Post

newspaper reported .

Thailand is again tightening corona entry rules for tourists: a large wave of travel from China is expected

It is still unclear when the new corona entry rules in Thailand will come into force.

Thailand only lifted all corona entry rules last October.

As a rule, official decisions in Thailand come into effect as soon as they are published in the Official Journal of the

Royal Thai Government Gazette

.

However, the country is now expecting a large wave of travel from China, where the virus is currently spreading massively.

It can therefore be assumed that the regulation will be implemented very quickly, as Thailand is an extremely popular travel destination for tourists from China.

In December 2022, Beijing announced the end of the quarantine requirement for travelers to the People's Republic.

From January 8, 2023, people traveling to China from abroad will only have to show a negative corona test.

After the end of the zero corona policy, the Chinese will be able to go on holiday abroad again.
