Thailand has opened its doors for vaccinated tourists from more than 60 countries. Tourists from different countries will be able to travel to Thailand from Monday. Due to Corona restrictions, travel was banned in Thailand for 18 months.

Tourists from more than 60 countries who have received two doses of the vaccine will be able to travel to Thailand. From now on, these tourists will not have to stay in quarantine.

Late last month, Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha announced that citizens of different countries would be able to travel to Thailand without quarantine from November 1.

The country's tourism sector collapsed due to a long-standing travel ban on tourists due to the Corona pandemic. The tourism-dependent country is allowing quarantine-free travel to revitalize the sector.

Earlier, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said tourists would be able to travel to Thailand without the mandatory quarantine if they received two doses of the vaccine and could show the necessary documents to be free of the virus.

The number of tourists in the country is expected to reach 1.5 crores by the end of next year. It will add more than 30 billion to the Thai economy.

However, the country still has strict restrictions in most areas. In addition, only 42 percent of people have already received two doses of the vaccine. About a thousand people are still being infected every day in the country.

Various tourist cities, including Bangkok and Phuket, have already launched their airport services to the United Kingdom, China, Japan, the United States, and most of Europe. China had the highest number of tourists visiting Thailand before the Corona pandemic. In 2019, 12 million Chinese citizens visited the country.
