Yesterday Thailand announced that the country would eliminate the quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated visitors from low-risk countries from November 01, 2021.

The coronavirus quarantine requirement will end for at least 10 countries, including the United Kingdom, Singapore, Germany, China and the United States.

PM Prayuth Chan-ocha says that more countries will be added to the list later.

The announcement comes as the Southeast Asian nation tries to revive its economy hit by the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Last year the country suffered its deepest economic contraction in more than two decades, with the major tourism sector still struggling due to the pendamic of coronavirus.

According to the announcement made by PM Prayuth Chan-ocha, fully vaccinated travelers from 10 countries will be exempted from quarantine upon arrival in Thailand.

Prayuth further added, "I know this decision comes with some risk. It is almost certain that we will see a temporary rise in serious cases as we relax these restrictions"

"We will have to track the situation very carefully and see how to contain and live with that situation because I do not think that the many millions who depend on the income generated by the travel, leisure, and entertainment sector can possibly afford the devastating blow of a second lost new year holiday period"
