Thailand will issue special tourist visas for long-term visits to the country for a period of at least 90 days, but subject to a 14-day quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was announced by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-Ocha after a cabinet meeting, the Bangkok Post reported.

According to the prime minister, the most important condition for issuing visas will be a 14-day quarantine. “Foreigners can come to receive tourism or medical services, and they can be isolated in government quarantine facilities or in hospitals that function as quarantine facilities,” he said.

Deputy government spokeswoman Traisuli Traisaranakul said the visa could be extended twice, bringing the total stay in the country to 270 days.

However, long-term visitors will need to present proof of payment for hotel booking or long-term rental.

According to her, the new type of visa is expected to start operating in October.
