From April 1, Thailand will cancel the mandatory PCR test for tourists when entering the country. This was announced on Friday at a briefing by Deputy Foreign Ministry Spokesman Natapanu Nopakun.
At the same time, it should be noted that the PCR test on the day of arrival and the antigen test on the fifth day of stay in the country remain mandatory. “In addition, from April 1, travelers entering the country for quarantine will be in isolation for only five days, regardless of vaccination status,” he added. At the moment, this period is 10 days, TASS reports.
“From April to May, we expect to reach a plateau, which means that the number of infected people will stop growing and will remain at the same level,” continued Nopakun. “From the end of May to the end of June, a stage of reducing [the number of infected people] in the country is planned.”
“From July 1, if everything goes well, we hope to move from a pandemic to an endemic,” the representative of the Foreign Ministry added.
