The cabinet on Tuesday agreed to temporarily allow tourists not to fill in the TM6 arrival/departure card to avoid overcrowding at airports.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha said during the meeting on Tuesday that easing the TM6 requirement would facilitate the reopening of the country to tourists.
Filling out and filing documents was a cause of overcrowding at airports, he said, as reported by Bangkok Post.
The government will monitor the situation to check if there will be problems that will arise as a result of the decision and whether officials could still efficiently track people entering and leaving the country.
Prayut also said that the Interior Minister would speed up the drafting of an announcement, which he expects to take about a week.
