THAILAND TO FULLY REOPEN ON NOVEMBER 1st 2021
It’s certainly been a long while since Thailand closed its borders to tourist. However, things are getting better and most restrictions are being lifted. Now that things are slowly beginning to return to “normal”, most people wanting to go travel can explore once again the stunning country of Thailand.
Island-hopping, mouthwatering food, tropical sunshine on our faces and of course the friendly and inviting smile of the people can be experience again. So, gather your loved ones and get your bags ready because starting November 1, 2021, Thailand is welcoming tourist again!
First step for tourist and travelers is to register for a “Thailand Pass” at tp.consular.go.th by submitting the required documents. Upon approval, you will receive their Thailand Pass QR code. This site will be operational on Nov. 1st, 2021.
