All arrivals back to facing 14-day quarantine ‒ again

PHUKET: All people arriving in the country from May 6 onwards will be required to observe a 14-day mandatory quarantine, the Phuket office of the Ministry of Interior has confirmed.

Saturday 1 May 2021, 11:32AM

The office announced the warning on its official COVID-19 information Facebook page, ’Phuket Anti-COVID19’ at 10pm last night (Apr 30).

“From 1 May 2021, all travelers who wish to enter Thailand will be quarantined for 14 days regardless to their country of origin or vaccination status,” the office announced.

However, it did note that, “Travellers who have obtained their Certificate of Entry (COE) prior to 1 May 2021 and arrive before 6 May 2021 will be quarantined for 7 or 10 days, depending on their vaccination status. There is no need to apply for a new COE.”


“Travellers who arrived in Thailand from 6 May 2021 onward will be quarantined for 14 days.

“For those who already have a COE, your quarantine period will be changed to 14 days automatically.

“The hotel will contact you to revise the quarantine package before your arrival in Thailand,” said the announcement

@Kurt  Look at their website.They still flying on certain routes.
@PN  regarding Lalala.A very wise decision ! Most reader will agree!

 Bkk Post reported that Bkk Air suspended some services and closed lounges. It is still flying with some seriously good deals.

@GerryT81, you may be aware that there are numerous other news-outlets existing in LOScam so I do not really care if the PN need to cease operation. Love ? Do you believe in the tooth-ferry ? Bored ? I write comments during my time on the ergo-meter. What about you smart-ass  ?

@GerryT81, Well said

@GerryT81:  BangkokPost, 22 April, "Bangkok Airways suspend services, closes offices".

GerryT81 | 02 May 2021 - 18:23:41

@Lalala   As you are so happy about the current situation in Thailand and that there will be no tourism in the foreseeable future, where will you post your hate tirades if the PN should go out of business because of lack of advertisements etc.? And why are you still keep posting at all. Having such a boring life ? Nobody loves you ?

GerryT81 | 02 May 2021 - 18:16:58

@Kurt.  Could you please name the source of your information that Bangkok Airways did stop domestic flying ! Looks like to me you got something totally wrong. Again !

"wip-wap" behavior" ????   Kurt ,this is an English language magazine.For Dutch you should post somewhere else.

cyberspider | 02 May 2021 - 16:14:26

Im afraid Thailand will lose tourism market to some other countries like Dominican Republic, or CostaRica, where there is no quarantine, PCR test or vaccine requirement.

Kurt | 02 May 2021 - 12:10:54

The panicking 'wip-wap' behavior, overnight a total 15D/14N quarantine order again for tourists, make future foreign tourists feel insecure. They never know what Thai Government does/not does. So, they think, forget Thailand as holiday destination. Government officials and TAT seem not to understand that foreigners plan/book long distance holidays months in advance.

At least they get a warning that should kill off the few arrivals that may have been scheduled.

Kurt | 01 May 2021 - 13:49:13

Great. Now also restrict Thai inter provincial traveling without quarantine. Seems only Bangkok Airlines understood the need of it as it stopped domestic flying.

LALALA | 01 May 2021 - 11:58:22

As wrote in another post-say goodbye to tourists in the near future. Looks like the scammers need to be ready for some more suffering...LOL. Looking forward to hear from more lobbyists asking for financial aid after burning all savings and profits they made before covid.
