Thailand on Wednesday cancelled visa on arrival for 18 countries and visa exemption for three others to contain the spread of the coronavirus, Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda said.
This decision is made to protect Thai People from COVID 19, so that people should be more protected.
Previously, nationals of 18 countries or territories could use their passports and documents to apply for Visa on Arrival (VoA) at Thai immigration checkpoints and Thailand Airports.
The 18 places are: Bulgaria, Bhutan, China (including Taiwan), Cyprus, Ethiopia, Fiji, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Malta, Mexico, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, and Vanuatu.
Visa exemption will be cancelled for South Korea, Italy and Hong Kong, the interior minister told.
Gen Anupong said all arrivals from those countries have to apply for visas at a Thai embassy in there own country or consulate and travel with a medical certificate to prove they are not infected with the virus.
However you can still travel Thailand like Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, etc. But you will need to apply for the visa in your own country at a Thai Embassy.
