Quarantine reduced to 10 days as of Today!

1 Apr 2021

The quarantine will be reduced to ten days from today. According to Thai media reports, the quarantine for vaccinated tourists will be reduced to seven days from today, but Thai embassies in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia only mention the ten-day quarantine. Travellers from countries where the coronavirus has mutated will still be required to stay in quarantine for 14 days.

After last year's restrictions, the Thai Cabinet has approved a proposal to reduce the mandatory 14-day quarantine period (sometimes ending up being 15 to 16 days). The reduced quarantine will be implemented in Phuket, Krabi, Phang Nga, Koh Samui, Pattaya, and Chiang Mai, according to Pattaya News.

According to a recent post from the Thai government's public relations department, the seven-day quarantine applies to travellers who have a valid Covid-19 vaccination certificate or are travelling from countries that do not have mutated strains. Upon arrival, travellers must present the vaccine certificate.

While many reports said that starting April 1, quarantine for travellers who are vaccinated against Covid-19 will be reduced to seven days, the Thai embassies in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia do not mention the seven-day quarantine.
