New Update for Foreigners return and Nightlife opening

29 Jun 2020

All night entertainment outlets, like wet massage parlours, will open their doors again on Wednesday and some visitors will be permitted into the region, but not tourists, as restrictions on virus lockdowns would be further eased.

On Monday the Center for Covid-19 Condition Administration (CCSA) provided all remaining entertainment facilities the green light to reopen from Wednesday. They have pubs and restaurants, karaoke bars, and spa pools. This would include safety.

"It's been widely debated," said CCSA spokesperson Taweesilp Visanuyothin after the meeting.

The Thai Chana app, developed to alert businesses and consumers of any Covid-19 outbreak, would allow all reopening premises to use.

Investors and highly qualified staff from Japan, China, South Korea , Hong Kong and Singapore would be allowed to access the country on condition that they join a self-sponsored quarantine scheme at government-arranged private facilities. Short term travelers to company should be removed from the provision.

According to the spokesperson, both foreigners who have families in Thailand and those who have homes in the kingdom will be permitted to travel.

Allowing the complete support of CCSA board leaders, headed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, of visitors from countries aligned with Thailand into a "travel bubble."

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Health Anutin Charnvirakul said that public protection policies would also be ironed out for Thai visitors heading to other nations, and international tourists arriving here.

The Department of Disease Control and the Foreign Ministry agreed to collaborate on recommendations that were also applicable to partner countries with specific health criteria, said Mr Anutin, whose Bhumjaithai group advises health and tourism policies.

Foreigners who come to Thailand for medical attention will be permitted in from Wednesday but they must be joined by their companion to reach the hospital they are heading to.

"Just some and not all medical tourism projects would be permitted," Dr Taweesilp said.

After more than a month, the decision to open up more company, and some travel, was made without reporting any new local infections in Thailand.

Also, the meeting decided to prolong the usage of the emergency declaration until July end. Restrictions on pubs, classrooms, malls and other athletic events were relaxed earlier-including implementation of mutual distancing and body temperature limits.
