While Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced new procedures for the re-entry of non-Thai nationals who legally work in the country, the country will not be allowing international travellers to enter the Kingdom before July at the very earliest.
Elsewhere in Southeast Asia, Vietnam has already begun resuming domestic flights within the country. Vietnam Airlines is understood to be in discussions with the government to resume some international flights in June and the country is also reportedly in talks over instating travel bubbles with China and South Korea.
Vice-Chairman of the Vietnam Tourism Advisory Board Kenneth Atkinson noted that the first ‘bilaterals’ would be with the markets the country needed the most such as China and South Korea. “Then Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan,” he added.
