‘THAILAND PASS’ Registration eased for International Arrivals from 01 June 2022
Thailand’s Centre of COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) today approved the simplified Thailand Pass registration and entry rules for international arrivals, effective 1 June 2022.
Foreign nationals are still required to apply for a Thailand Pass (via https://tp.consular.go.th/), but will only need to provide passport details, vaccination, and a US$10,000 health insurance policy. The system will automatically issue a Thailand Pass QR code for the applicants. Meanwhile, Thais will no longer be required to apply for a Thailand Pass.
Upon arriving in Thailand, vaccinated travelers must undergo entry screening, and will then be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom.
Unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travelers who are able to upload proof of a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test within 72 hours of travel via the Thailand Pass system will also be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom.
The CCSA also approved further easing of nationwide COVID-19 controls with three color-coded zones: The Pilot Tourist Areas or blue zones, the Surveillance or green zone, and the Areas under the Stringent Surveillance or yellow zone.
Night-time entertainment venues; such as, pubs, bars, and karaoke lounges in the green and blue zones will be allowed to resume operation, including the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages on the premises until 24.00 Hrs. However, all venues are told to adhere to the prevention guidelines strictly.
The CCSA also lifted the quarantine requirement for the high-risk contact.
ITC News will be providing updates in detail once the official directives have been announced in the Royal Thai Government Gazette.
Phuket’s THB4.5 Billion Andamanda is Open!
Thailand’s newest integrated resort, the Andamanda Phuket will soft open next week on 21st May 2022. Styled as a leisure and entertainment offering, a water park debut will be the first phase of a larger development by Thailand’s Proud Group with a total investment of THB4.5 billion (USD134 million).
Andamanda will bring a world-class attraction to the resort island featuring 12 slides, 36 activities, and a 10,000 square meter wave pool. Thai culture is a recurring theme with a storyline on the legend of The Lost Kingdom of Nagon. The water park attractions have been designed by WhiteWater West whose credentials include Disney, Six Flags, and Atlantis.
Located in the fast-developing Kathu area, which is strategically situated between Phuket Town (City) and Patong, easy access to Andamanda will be aided by a significant new infrastructure project. The long-awaited Patong Tunnel made news in January of this year when Thailand’s Cabinet approved a THB14.7 billion budget for both a four-lane tunnel and expressway connection to Kathu. Expected to complete by 2027, Kathu is expected to evolve into the island’s new CBD area with key economic indicators such as Central Festival and Floresta already established as the island’s centerpiece.
