The Cabinet will not discuss the issue of a “travel bubble” pact with a few other countries today (June 16), Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said, adding that his ministry is preparing for the operation.

Anutin said the Tourism and Sports Ministry has a list ready of “safe” countries that can be part of the travel bubble.

“Numerous embassies have submitted documents to Thailand for the purpose. Initially, we will allow only businessmen or mechanics to enter our nation, before permitting tourists,” he promised.

Auntin said countries are being chosen depending on the Covid-19 situation there or what preventive measures they are taking.

“We are in the preparation phase, after which we will propose the operation to the prime minister for approval,” he said. 

Meanwhile, tourism stimulus measures which are being proposed to the Cabinet will cover tax reduction and other operations, not just cash handouts, Anutin clarified.
