Thailand is planning to re-open to foreign visitors by forming “travel bubbles” with countries and regions that have managed to contain Covid-19, according to a report from local newspaper Bangkok Post.

The country banned entry to foreigners in late March. 

Among the places being considered are New Zealand, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, South Korea, Vietnam and some countries in the Middle East, according to the report.

Under the proposed plan, each country would adopt “health screening” measures for arriving visitors.

The report added that Thailand’s public health minister Anutin Charnvirakul told reporters that tourists arriving into Thailand “must be checked again” when they reach the country, but “quarantining them would not be necessary”. They would also need to have medical insurance, he added.

According to a situation report from the World Health Organization (WHO) posted on June 14, Thailand has reported a total of 3,135 confirmed coronavirus cases.

The country reported no new coronavirus infections or deaths on Monday June 15, and this is the second time in five days that no cases were reported and marked 21 days without a local transmission, according to Reuters.
