On October 8th, the kingdom will be receiving its first group of foreign visitors, as the country gradually opens itself through the issuance of the new Special Tourist Visa (STV), permitting foreign visitors up to 270 days in the kingdom.

The first group will comprise 150 Chinese visitors who have scheduled a charter flight from Guangzhou to Phuket. There are also another seven international business operators coming to Thailand on the same day.

Foreign Ministry Deputy Spokesperson, Natapanu Nopakun shared that following the first flight, the kingdom will be receiving other special flights this month, mostly bringing in a hundred or so people on each flight.

14-day quarantine required

All inbound passengers will be screened upon arrival and transported to each individual’s chosen hotel for the required 14-day quarantine. Prior to their release, their last COVID-19 test will be conducted to ensure no virus leakage.

Natapanu also shared that demand from foreigners wishing to enter Thailand has been high. Since the government announced the introduction of the new STV visa and the expansion of eligible groups of visitors to the kingdom, Thai Embassies worldwide have received many applications.

He assured the applicants that all Thai Embassies are expediting their work in issuing appropriate visas; however, the kingdom is doing it on a step-by-step basis, starting with small groups of qualified foreigners from low-risk countries.

Those interested are welcome to contact a Thai embassy in their respective area to inquire about applying for the Special Tourist Visa (STV).
