The National Communicable Disease Committee has decided to shorten the mandatory quarantine period for vaccinated people arriving from abroad, from 14 to 7 days, effective from April, with the exception of those arriving from South Africa, who are still subject to 14-day isolation.

As far as Thailand is concerned, arrivals from abroad are divided into three groups.

The first is non-Thais who have been vaccinated will be quarantined for seven days on the condition that they have been vaccinated at least 14 days and not more than three months and have been issued a certificate from countries of origin with the exception of those arriving from South Africa.

The second group is Thais arriving from abroad will be quarantined for seven days on condition that they have been injected at least 14 days and not more than 3 months and issued with a health certificate.

The third group is non-Thais who have no certificate of vaccination, but have a certificate confirming that they are free from the virus will be quarantined for 10 days. This new measure will come into force in April.
