Thailand’s CCSA discusses tourism, visas, and home isolation

The “post-pandemic period” is beginning in Thailand, according to the CCSA. The CCSA has “agreed in principle” to “temporarily” expand the number of days accessible for visa on arrival/visa exemptions on arrival in an effort to promote tourism. The CCSA reported that the situation with Covid in Thailand is getting better and that it is now being classified as a “communicable disease under observation” as opposed to a “serious communicable disease.” The CCSA announced that they would provide further details on this at the future CCSA meeting, which will occur early next month. The CCSA has reduced the recommended home isolation duration for those who test positive for Covid from seven days to five days. The CCSA suggests monitoring symptoms for five additional days.

Overall this year, 3.78 million foreigners have visited Thailand. There was a sharp surge in international arrivals when Thailand Pass was discontinued in July. The Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha met with the Center for Covid-19 Administration Situation (CCSA) in Thailand today, August 19, to talk about coronavirus-related issues and foreign arrivals.

440,934 tourists traveled to Thailand between August 1 and August 17, 2022.
