Thailand Entry Restrictions Scare
BANGKOK: Thailand on Monday (Jan 9) rescinded a policy announced at the weekend requiring visitors to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, its health minister said, citing sufficient immunisation levels in China and globally.
Anutin Charnvirakul said requiring visitors to show evidence of vaccination was inconvenient and a panel of experts had resolved that it was unnecessary as enough vaccinations had been administered globally.
Global Entry Regulations Continue
The Pandemic continues to threaten the Travel Industry and the global economy. The new XBB.1.5 Covid-19 variant has sent shockwaves of concern worldwide due to the new outbreak in China and other countries, but for now, it’s still under control.
It is, therefore, essential for all travellers and travel agents to prepare for further visa processing and Consulate disruptions throughout 2023. Unfortunately, the threat of the pandemic remains a reality.
REMINDER: In addition to visas, airline tickets and confirmed accommodation, it is imperative to ensure all travellers meet the entry requirements for their final destination.
