Foreign Ministry cautions Thais over ‘vaccination tours’ to US


The Foreign Ministry is cautioning Thais about availing of tours to the United States for the sole purpose of receiving Covid-19 vaccinations. Some tourism agencies have announced US tour packages for those who want to be inoculated in that country.

The packages were in response to a US regulation that allows people on arrival aged 16 or over to be vaccinated.

However, the ministry explained that the regulation can differ from state to state and said that some states will vaccinate only US citizens.

The ministry urged Thais to first contact it via telephone 02-572-8442 or the Thai Consular application before buying any of these tour packages.
