All countries with land borders with Thailand have zero or close to zero new local infection.  What are the reasons  they don't open borders to each other.  What are they waiting for?  

 

Tourism among these countries may be small but it is something.  Also, opening up to these countries will build up experience and overtime show everybody the extremely low risk of traveling between low risk counties is the same as traveling within the same country.

The easy days are over.....twenty years had it made and didn't know it, well maybe I did. I had an account at Canadia Bank for many years making great interest and always wondered if or when the &%$ would hit the fan. And now I wait no longer. Seems like the guys at the top are al in it together and don't care anyway or the other about most below them.

Sri Lanka and Maldives plan to open in July. Turkey, which has his biggest part in Asia, is desperate for visitors.

Sri Lanka opens in August but under VERY stringent conditions. Foreigners are barred from using public transport, for one.

Their hands are tied. They can't just "open up" because you want them to. This covid thing is a global agenda. They will open up whenever they are allowed to. Whether that's in 1 month, 2, 3, 4 or 6 months, I don't know. We'll find out soon enough.

Time slips away. It is already summer time.  Virus is almost non existent  in Thailand and surrounding countries. How many more months do we have to wait before we are allowed to move across borders.  I hope Auguest.  Otherwise we may be stuck here for months when cold weather comes back.

With minimal or no restrictions, indications as of the time I'm making this post are September or October. Wouldn't be surprised if this gets dragged out until next year though.

 

Hard to say, since governments are flip flopping and making contradictory statements almost on a daily basis. My gut feeling is that since decisions seem to be made on a month to month basis, things will be a lot clearer by August 1. That said, I am quite sure that August will still be restrictive. Expect limited tourist arrivals then, but more along the lines of an "open air prison camp" type, where you are only allowed to visit one island and not permitted to travel elsewhere, or only after 14 days, with continual monitoring, covid testing and all. If you want to avoid that, you'll need to continue waiting.
