Thailand extends Emergency Decree for the fifth time


The Royal Thai Government has approved the Emergency Decree nationwide for another month until September 30.

On the report of The Royal Thai Gazette on Friday, the government stated that the fifth extension of the state of emergency was still needed to enable authorities to enforce communicable disease control measures to prevent a second wave of COVID-19 infections. It noted that there are still no vaccines proven to prevent COVID‑19.

According the announcement, the government recognized the need to relax disease control measures in phases for various businesses and activities to allow the public to return to daily life with the new normal. However, strict disease control measures must still be in place to ensure public health.

Moreover, Thailand will continue to record a growing number of Thai and non-Thai nationals entering Thailand under special conditions in the coming month, according to the statement.

In the meantime, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to remind all to continue to adhere to health and safety routines to protect themselves, as well as others from the COVID-19 infection.
