Easing entry for businesspersons would help lift the economy, which is sagging under the impact from Covid-19, government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said on Monday.
The Centre for Covid-19 Administration Situation has so far permitted about 11,000 foreign businesspeople and work-permit holders to enter Thailand. All went into alternative state quarantine for 14 days when they arrived in Thailand.
The centre has also given the green light for long-stay foreign visitors to enter Thailand from October 1 on Special Tourist Visas. The tourists must undergo alternative state quarantine for 14 days.
