The Thai Government is taking a phased approach to resuming international tourism.
On 15 September, the Cabinet approved a proposal to issue long stay tourist visas.
These Special Tourist Visas will allow visitors to stay for 90 days, and the visa can be extended twice, which comes to a total of 270 days in Thailand.
International arrivals will have to undergo mandatory quarantine for 14 days, must show evidence of a confirmed accommodation booking, and agree to comply with measures set by the Ministry of Public Health.
No official date is available at this stage, but this could begin in October.
The visa will be open to foreign nationals traveling from countries with low or no local COVID-19 transmission.
Anyone who is eligible must contact their local Thai Embassy in their current location for more information.
The General Booking conditions for the near future are...
if you are unable to join your trip due to Covid travel restrictions at your point of departure or your own home country are you can cancel for free and move your trip to a later date creating a risk free booking situation.
At this current time Thailand is NOT yet open for International travellers but expects to be open to tourism by the time the season in the Similan starts at the end of October
International travel is expected to open soon with the "new normal" criteria that is now come to be expected with modern day travel.
Most likely travel restrictions will be as below but at this point nothing is for certain.
