Here’s the official press release on Thailand’s reopening for international tourists, posted on the Thai Government Public Relations Department.

Thailand to Reopen for International Tourists

The Cabinet has approved a proposal by the Center for Economic Situation Administration on guidelines for Thailand to reopen for international tourists in order to revive the country’s economy affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under this proposal, the Government will ease quarantine measures for travelers entering Thailand from abroad in four stages.

In the first stage, starting from 1 April 2021, international tourists traveling to Phuket, Krabi, Phang-nga, Pattaya, and Chiang Mai will be quarantined for seven days, instead of 14 days, in a seal area or a hotel, but they must have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with vaccine certificates.

In the second stage, starting from 1 July 2021 onwards, international visitors to Phuket who have received two doses of the vaccine will not be required to stay in quarantine, while other destinations will still require a seven-day quarantine.

In the third stage, beginning from 1 October 2021 onwards, quarantine requirements will be lifted for international visitors to the pilot destinations of Phuket, Phang-nga, Krabi, Pattaya, and Chiang Mai, if they have been vaccinated with vaccine certificates.

In the fourth stage, beginning from 1 January 2022 onwards, international tourists entering all areas in Thailand will not be quarantined, if they have vaccine certificates.
