A supervised ATK test will be necessary for travelers who have not received a negative ATK or PCR test within 72 hours of arriving in Thailand. Thailand is bracing for a boom in Chinese tourists, who were previously the country’s most numerous visitors. We’ll keep a watch on the latest travel restrictions imposed by China. On the other hand, visitors from other countries, such as India, have already returned to Thailand.

As of tomorrow, Thai people will no longer be required to register for the Thailand Pass app, but they will be required to provide a vaccination certificate as well as a Covid-19 test, ATK, or PCR upon arrival. If we could attract more Chinese tourists, the number of Chinese tourists would rise. Thailand’s Transport Minister, Saksayam Chidchob, announced that from June 1, every airport in the country will be ready to welcome more tourists. The Minister set a goal of 22 million visitors for this year. The number has only recently crossed one million (mid-May).

Saksayam attended a formal seminar at Suvarnabhumi Airport yesterday in preparation for the Thailand Pass adjustments that will take place tomorrow (Wednesday). He double-checked a number of places throughout the airport, including the disease control checkpoint, passport checkpoint, and customs checkpoint, to ensure that the facilities and staff were ready to assist arriving passengers.

He then joined a video chat with representatives from other Thai airports, where he listened to briefings. According to Saksayam, Suvarnabhumi Airport is expected to see 70,000 travelers per day in June, with 54 percent foreign passengers and 43 percent local passengers. Thailand has set a goal of 22 million visitors by 2022, which Saksayam believes it will achieve. In addition, from 440 in May to 480 in June, the number of flights would increase. Last month, China tightened border controls for all ‘non-essential’ travel and maintained the Zero Covid policy, with major sections of Shanghai and Beijing remaining under lockdown. This year, China’s borders are unlikely to reopen completely. International travelers who have been vaccinated must still use the Thailand Pass app to register and show proof of health insurance before being allowed to enter the country without taking the Covid-19 test.
