Thailand bans foreigners arriving from 3 more South Asian countries

Thailand has imposed a ban on foreigners arriving from 3 more South Asian countries – Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal, in addition to India – as a protective measure against COVID-19.  

The entry ban includes foreigners departing from these countries and in transit in other countries and those travelling in or passing through them. 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Tanee Sangrat said the decision was made at the request of the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) following the discovery of the fast-spreading variant in travellers from Pakistan. “The CCSA has confirmed reports that one traveller from Pakistan into Thailand has been infected by the Covid-19 variant first detected in India,” said Mr Tanee.
