The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has now permitted some international yachts to enter Thailand. There are 60 yachts (27 superyachts and 33 cruise ships) with 600-650 passengers that have requested permission to enter Thailand.
All passengers and crew must quarantine on board for 14 days and get an RT-PCR test three times for COVID-19 before disembarking.
The Public Health Ministry will make a list of low-risk countries for the COVID-19 pandemic, which will be submitted to the Interior Ministry to draw up criteria for further easing restrictions on entry of foreigners into the country.
Government Spokesman Anuchai Burapachaisri said that the list would also be used to consider reduction of the quarantine period from the current mandatory 14 days.
The Centre for Economic Situation Administration at a recent meeting reportedly discussed the private sector’s proposal to ease restrictions on the entry of foreign investors and business persons, including a shorter quarantine period.
