Thailand is preparing for more visitors after China reopened its border on Sunday by requiring international passengers to show proof they are completely immunized against COVID before traveling to Thailand.
According to a statement released on Saturday by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT), beginning early on Monday, all international arrivals would need to show proof of vaccination or a letter attesting to their recovery from COVID within six months.
Travelers who are not immunized must have a medical certificate stating their reason for not being immunized.
The CAAT stated that airlines would be in charge of verifying documentation before passengers board and published a list of the number of doses needed for various COVID-19 vaccine kinds on its website.
According to CAAT, the new policy will be in place at least through the end of January.
Thailand eliminated the vaccination requirement last October, but it has been reinstated as China reopens its border as a result of loosening its zero-COVID policy.
