As the pandemic subsides, Thailand is considering implementing a “travel bubble” plan which will allow 1,000 foreigners into the country daily without having them to undergo a 14-day quarantine.

The first group of visitors to be allowed into the kingdom includes business travellers and foreigners who seek medical treatment in Thailand.
Deputy government spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul said this is a part of a bilateral cooperation programme on tourism between Thailand and selected countries that have the COVID-19 situation under control.
