Thailand mulls waiving quarantine for vaccinated tourists

Thailand may scrap its two-week mandatory quarantine for foreign visitors with proof of Covid-19 vaccination as the Southeast Asian nation seeks to revive its pandemic-hit tourism industry, according to an article published on Bloomberg.

The country's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha today said his government will consider allowing visitors who can produce a vaccination certificate to skip the quarantine and authorities will come up with a plan to track them during their stay in the country, reports Bloomberg.

If implemented, the move could bolster Thailand's tourism sector that contributed about one-fifth to the nation's pre-pandemic economy.
