Thailand allows holiday without isolation from November 1st. It is not yet clear whether this applies to Switzerland as well.
Good news for long-distance travelers: From November 1, Thailand will open its borders to at least a dozen countries — including Germany — for an uninterrupted holiday for fully vaccinated people. Not sure if Switzerland will be there either. Thailand plans to release the relevant list by the end of October.
This was announced by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-sa in a televised address on Tuesday. Singapore, China and the United States are the other countries on the Corona impact list. Freud said vacationers should only do one PCR test before leaving home and another when coming to Thailand. After that, they can travel freely to all parts of the country.
Wine from December 1st
From December 1, more countries are expected to be added to the list. Alcohol exchange will probably be allowed again in restaurants that have been banned for several months due to the severe corona wave.
Vaccinated travelers from all other countries still need to be isolated for seven days – or they participate in sample projects in specific areas such as Phuket and the Koh Samui Islands. As part of the plans, a non-isolation holiday for double-vaccinated travelers from several countries has been made possible since July again due to the need to follow some strict rules.
Department of Tourism at the ground
Thailand has long hoped to revive the most important tourism sector. For a year and a half the industry was completely destroyed. Many have no income after that.
“For me, too, this is one of the most painful experiences of my life, and I have to make decisions to save lives by saving livelihoods,” Prayuth stressed. The most important tourism sector in the country has been almost completely on the ground for over a year and a half. Many have no income after that.
Last year, Thailand was seen as a model country in the fight against the epidemic – but the state has experienced its worst wave since April. In a country of 70 million people, the number of epidemics is slowly declining. On Tuesday, authorities recorded about 9,400 new infections and 84 deaths related to Govt-19. (SDA)
