The Foreign Affairs Ministry issued a statement saying not more than 200 people will be allowed to enter the country each day. The statement came after an order that planes would be prohibited from landing until April 18.
The number of 200 was decided upon after discussions between related agencies in order to systematically manage entry into the country and make appropriate arrangements for people entering, especially 14-day quarantine in specified areas.
Relevant Thai agencies are coordinating with embassies and the consulates-general to provide appropriate information, advice and assistance to Thais abroad.
The ministry said it would like to emphasise that the latest travel management rules are in accordance with the prime minister’s policies to tackle the spread of Covid-19.
