Thailand reopens to vaccinated tourists after 18 months of Covid curbs
The Guardian says Thailand has opened its borders to vaccinated travellers from more than 60 countries , the largest restart of tourism yet in south-east Asia where borders have mostly remained shut throughout the pandemic.
Starting on Monday, Thailand is allowing visitors from 63 countries to visit without the need to quarantine.
It is hoped the measure, announced just ahead of the peak tourism season, will revive the country’s ailing travel sector, which once contributed as much as 20% of GDP. The list includes China, the US, European nations such as the UK, and many neighbouring countries.
