Thailand adjusts entry permissions, restarts sandbox entries, halts Test and Go

Thailand said it will adjust its entry permissions on Friday in line with global pandemic guidelines.

The Test and Go procedure with one-day quarantine is still temporarily scrapped.

“We will continue to halt the Test and Go procedure for now,” said Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, the spokesman of the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration.

The deadline for those with approved Thailand Passes for the procedure, was extended from January 10 to 15.

“No entry via this procedure will be allowed after that,” he said.

The CCSA estimated that there are around 10,400 people who were approved for the procedure and still waiting to enter between January 7 and 15.

The ban on entries from eight African countries will be lifted on January 11.

The registration to enter Thailand via the tourist sandboxes, with seven days quarantine period, in Phuket, Krabi, Phang Nga and Surat Thani (Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan and Ko Tao) will be reopened on January 11 after it was halted on December 22.
