Prayut targets October for Thailand’s full reopening


BANGKOK — Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Wednesday that Thailand will fully reopen to foreign tourists in October.

Tourists who are fully vaccinated will be allowed to enter Thailand without having to go through quarantine. Although Prayut said he understands the risks, opening the country is necessary to help the economy bounce back.

To make this happen, the government targets to have everyone get their first dose of the vaccine promptly.

According to the premiere, 50 million people should get their first dose by October, which the government has signed contracts to procure a total of 105.5 million doses from six manufacturers by year end.
