Thailand to have strict quarantine procedures for all Thai Nationals returning from overseas


Thailand’s Ministry of Interior has instructed all governors to follow guidelines for quarantining persons traveling into the kingdom and report to the Ministry of Interior every day via LINE application.

Interior Ministry Permanent Secretary Chatchai Phromlert has instructed the provincial governors to quarantine arrivals at facilities arranged for them. The guidelines are as follows:

1. The provinces must clearly specify the name of the facilities and send two photos taken outside the building and inside the rooms to a private line group.

2. The provinces of origin must quarantine travelers entering both by air and by land and must not allow them to enter self-quarantine at home. If there are too many people entering the quarantine process, the provinces are required to prepare a name list and submit it to the Ministry of Interior. The destination provinces must clearly specify the facilities used for the quarantine process.

Those who enter the country illegally will be prosecuted according to law. If they are Thais, they will not be allowed to go back to their hometown but will be placed under quarantine at facilities arranged by the provinces.

This is a press release from the National Thai News Bureau.
