2 Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said the national committee for infectious diseases has decided that visitors would have to present neither a proof of vaccination nor a negative COVID-19 test at the airport.
3 Those infected with the virus will only have to self-isolate if they have severe symptoms; otherwise, wearing a mask and social distancing is sufficient under the new rules.
4 The rules have yet to receive the green light from the COVID-19 crisis centre.
5 Case numbers have been decreasing steadily in the country in recent weeks.
6 The relaxed rules are part of an attempt to revive the country’s crucial tourism sector and tempt people back to the popular holiday destination.
