As of Wednesday, at least 42 Thai provinces now have some form of entry restrictions for travellers from so-called high risk locations.

 

However, the restrictions vary quite drastically from province to province.

 

Lampang, Phichit and Ubon Ratchathani were the latest provinces to announce restrictions on arrivals.

 

Requirements for travellers from Bangkok, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Samut Prakan, Nakhon Pathom and in some cases, Chiang Mai, range from being required to self quarantine for 14 days, take a rapid COVID-19 test or confirm whereabouts to local health officials.

 

Some provinces only require quarantine for people from certain districts in Bangkok, namely Bang Khae, Klong Toey and Wattana, as well as  Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Samut Prakan.

 

Whereas other provinces only require quarantine for those who visited high risk venues - mainly the Thonglor bars and nightclubs - which have been confirmed as the source of the major cluster discovered in the capital.

 

In many provinces, self quarantine is not required if a person takes a rapid COVID test and tests negative. 

 

If you do still plan to travel, the advice is to seek the latest information regarding your destination province before you begin your journey.

 

The situation is fluid and is ever changing, so try to get as up to date information as you can prior to your departure.

 

Provinces enforcing entry restrictions for travellers are:

 

North:

Chiang Mai, Kamphaeng Phet, Lampang, Lamphun, Nan, Phayao, Phetchabun, Phichit, Phitsanulok, Phrae, Tak, Uttaradit.

 

Northeast:

Amnat Charoen, Bueng Kan, Buri Ram, Chaiyaphum, Khon Kaen, Mahasarakham, Mukdahan, Nakhon Phanom, Nakhon Ratchasima, Nong Bua Lam Phu, Nong Khai, Sakon Nakhon, Ubon Ratchathani, Udon Thani, Yasothon.

 

Central, East and West:

Chainat, Lopburi, Nakhon Sawan, Sa Kaeo, Saraburi, Sing Buri, Uthai Thani

 

South:

Chumphon, Narathiwat, Pattani, Phangnga, Ranong, Satun, Songkhla, Trang

 

Meanwhile, in Prachuap Khiri Khan, where on Tuesday the total number of cases surpassed 300, officials are only requesting quarantine from people who visited high risk venues

 

In Phuket, officials have said quarantine is not needed for arrivals from high risk areas.

 

In Surat Thani, quarantine is not required but people entering the province need to scan in the ‘Save Surat’ QR code.

Perhaps the officials in Phuket think they are already at the magical 70% vaccinated level? News for them... they are not!

 

but having quarantine restrictions for Thais from risk areas, and no quarantine for foreigners would be an ironic situation should it ever get that far later in the year 😂

I don't get it. Anyone can come to Chiang Rai? Like people from Chiang Mai but people from Chiang Rai are restricted if they go to Chiang Mai?

Again Chiang Rai is not on the list? If you are from a Red zone you have to self isolate for 14 days. 

 

Where do you see that? For CR

Basically one/two days left in Songkran; and, new provinces are being added to the travel restrictions list.  Geez who knew Covid would spread like wildfire by allowing open travel then applying open travel restrictions afterwards.  Darwin, Darwin, anyone seen Darwin?

 Phone home,that's my wife's answer (btw not my idea of forward planning)

 You can't put a male western brain in a Thais females head,i've tried for 20 odd years,no chance

Obviously this is all very difficult to enforce and quite ineffectual.  A former maid of mine went off to a nephew's ordination party in Buriram saying she wasn't worried about Buriram's quarantine policy for folk coming from Bangkok, as she would just tell them she came from Korat. Job done.

so now all those travelled out for Songkran.....what they supposed to do?

 

would make a lot more sense to announce such least 1 day ahead, so ppl have chance to re-arrange plans, etc.

i was to drive upcountry on Friday, was already fearing it would be tough to come back if i do....now that issue is solved as cant go.

 

bunch of idiots really.

feared to restrict Songkran travel for the public backlash, now do the same mid-Songran while most ppl in a different province, and the restriction doesnt have much a positive result anymore, being little too late as all the Bkk cluster got spread now. just crazy.

Maybe while they are at it, they can get the personnel out of those tents playing on their phone all day suppose to be check points for drunks?

 

Never seen anything like it, is there no pride, shame in these government workers it goes on year after year so often they they seem to take pride in sitting and doing nothing.🤔

Have to agree with you about the brains but it is not just limited to Thai females.

I'm from Chiang Mai, and I have an appointment next Wednesday in Bangkok to renew my passport. It's going to be interesting...

Does this mean that Anutin who said there’s no risk in people travelling throughout the provinces was seen to be just another clueless friend of Charley Chan? 

 

God forbid anything happens to our golden boy where this piece of s**t would take the reigns.

What is a rapid Covid 19 test?

Wake up at 2pm, scratch the usual parts, two farts, grab a breakfast beer and stroll down to the local hospital, pay 2,000 or whatever baht and sit in a room full of people who think they are infected with Covid-19, if you aren't then you will be by the time you leave the hospital with the all clear result of the rapid covid test.

You then become a statistic of a negative test and you go an infect the rest of your community and drinking colleagues.

Beer for thought.....just grab a second breakfast beer and stay home!

There were no road blocks on Highway 11 into Chiang Mai when I passed through yesterday.  It would be interesting to know if they are actually enforcing quarantines anywhere or just paying lip service.
