The Thai government plans to allow four groups of foreigners to enter the country, Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, the spokesman of the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, announced today (June 22).

Investors and businessmen based in Thailand, and medical tourists, will be the first foreigners allowed in when the kingdom gradually reopens its doors to foreigners.

Four groups (not including those under the so-called “travel bubble” international pact) may be required to undertake state quarantine on entry:

1. Businessman and investors (around 700 have registered to enter).

2. Skilled labourers and exporters who need to inspect factories or for specific business purposes (around 22,000 have registered).

3. Foreigners married to Thais, or permanent residents of Thailand (around 2,000 have registered).

4. Medical and wellness tourists (around 30,000 have registered).
