Thailand eases restrictions on 1 April – shorter quarantine and no fit-to-fly certificates

Thailand will shorten the mandatory quarantine period from 14 days to 10 and 7 days and travelers will not need fit-to-fly documents when arriving into the country starting 1 April, The Thaiger reports.

The eased restrictions were agreed upon at yesterday’s CCSA meeting and the 1 April easing of some arrival restrictions is the latest in Thailand’s plan to have most restrictions lifted by October this year.

According to The Thaiger, Dr. Taweesilp Visanuyothin, CCSA spokesman announced that from 1 April visitors to Thailand will be allowed to carry a Covid-19-free certificate instead of a fit-to-fly document, and the 14 day quarantine period only remains for people arriving from areas where the Covid-19 virus has ‘mutated’. People arriving without a vaccination certificate will need to quarantine for 10 days and people who have had the vaccine only need to quarantine for 7 days.

Additionally, travelers arriving from 1 April to 30 June will be allowed to leave their quarantine room including using fitness facilities, swimming pool, and outdoor exercise areas if they “comply with the public health measures”. Travelers in quarantine will also be allowed to buy food and goods outside their hotel but exactly how this will work in practice has not been announced yet.
