The government is considering how to further ease travel restrictions for people who want to enter Thailand for business or investment purposes.

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.
