The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) is expected to consider guidelines for reopening the country to foreign tourists under the Special Tourist Visa (STV) scheme on September 28, the government's deputy spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul said.

She said the concerned state agencies were ready for reopening the country under the scheme and it will take place when the time is right.

Under the STV, tourists will have to arrive via charter flights or private jets. They will have to test for the virus 72 hours prior to boarding the flight to Thailand and have a health insurance policy that covers Covid-19. They also will undergo quarantine for 14 days once they arrive in Thailand.

The Tourism and Sports Ministry estimates that around 1,200 tourists will visit Thailand per month under the STV, or 14,400 per year.
