Covid-19 Vaccine and Thai Visas


Recommended Posts

Pfizer and Moderna covid-19 vaccine is coming out next month in USA. If you get vaccinated, do you still need 72 hour covid-19 test, ASQ quarantine for 2 weeks, US$100,000 covid insurance, COE, fit to fly clearance, etc.?

Or nothing has changed at this time from Thai government or maybe later on for better visa options.

Remember they want to boost up its economy and that isnone of the main reason why everybody must take quarantine 14 in a luxus prison.

Love the optimism 👍

You will not test positive on an antigen test for having been vaccinated.

I don't think they will change anything for a while after it is released for use to confirm it works.

 

Hopefully later on efficacy  will prove otherwise and visa restrictions will be lifted.

The efficiency has already shown 95% successfull rate, so im sure the current requirments will be dropped as soon as people get vaccinated before they come

There is zero chance they will eliminate quarantine anytime soon in my opinion.  Probably not until the majority of the Thai population is vaccinated.

 

Even with a 95% effective vaccine, if they just opened things up to vaccinated Americans and Europeans, with the current rate of virus transmission, there would be dozens of infected people arriving daily.

I doubt it will be given any consideration this side of Easter. 

Those at the front of the queue are unlikely to be heading to Thailand and once the general public get going the vaccine would have to be administered at least 6 weeks before travel.

Once it does come into play, I suspect the initial benefit will be no quarantine, I doubt they will be in a hurry to lift the insurance requirement and that is unlikely before a global recovery.

I am inclined to say that infection numbers from the country of origin will be the factor as to whether quarantine will still be required. The idea of a vaccination passport sounds good, I just feel it will not be used.

I believe a time will come when showing a Covid-19 vaccination certificate will be part of the process in being allowed entry. That is probably a year down the road. It is possible that selected groups (critical foreign workers, perhaps) will be allowed quarantine free entry earlier, but quarantine is going to be with us for a long time yet. Continued strict controls will remain necessary if outbreaks are to be avoided.

Also depends on how many mutations sars-cov-2 will go through, if for every mutation and evolution, a new vaccine is needed, then the restrictions will never get lifted because these things evolve faster than the vaccine can be developed/tested/produced/distributed.

 Seems to me that the travel, hotel and hospitality industries will push hard in most/every country very quickly for no entry restriction/hotel quarantine etc., as soon as travelers can provide proof of vaccination.

 

Plus in Thailand (and other countries) these industries have strong political power. 

 

But we wait and see. 

Exactly.. I doubt there will be any restriction once your vaccinated.. I just dont hope it will become mandatory to be vaccinated before you can enter Thailand. And in worst case scenario, that your forced to take the vaccine in thailand if you wish to continue staying.... I wouldnt dare taking the vaccine there..

There will not be travel, hotel and hospitality industries in Thailand by the time a vaccine becomes available for the general public, if it even comes out at all and if there is no successor to covid-19 like covid-20 which will require a new vaccine.
