Foreigners infected with COVID-19 can visit Thailand
Foreign visitors to Thailand who are infected with COVID-19 will no longer be barred from entering, following a decision by the cabinet today (Monday) to delete COVID-19 from a list of forbidden diseases in foreign visitors, said Deputy Government Spokesperson Rachada Dhnadirek.
The new measure will take effect once it is announced in the Royal Gazette.
She said, however, that foreigners afflicted with leprosy, tuberculosis in a dangerous stage, elephantiasis with clear symptoms, third stage syphilis and diseases associated with drug abuse will still be barred from entering the country.
Foreigners who are afflicted with these diseases, or chronic alcoholism, will be forbidden from taking residence in the country.
