It seems Thailand are planning to declare an endemic in July (2022).

Previously, I've been skeptikal, there's been so fannying about and broken promises, it's often been one step forward and two back. But unlike other times there's a different feeling and vibe in Thailand, and I feel like this is realistic.

 

To back it up, Surin seems to be the test dummy and has begun an endemic status as of today https://www.bangkokp...-endemic-status

 

But what does endemic mean in terms of visiting Thailand?

 

That should definietly mean no more masks during day to day life, no closed business, no lockdowns, and no curfews. Essentailly, no covid specific rules. althuogh they may still require masks at mass gatherings. So hopefully that means bars and gogos back to before (in Pattaya we are already seeing bars staying open past midnight and girls dancing in gogos).

 

In terms of travel. that should (fingers crossed), mean no more covid travel rules, no quarantines, and back to pre covid entry. They are already limitig the tests, quarantine, and insurance needs.

 

If things go to plan, travellers who can prove they are vaccinated won't need any covid tests from June, (at the time of writing you don't need a test to board your flight, but do need test on entry to Thailand).  And as of July, no one (including unvaccinated) will need tests at any point.

It's probably not time to be booking any non refundable/changeable flights just yet, but flying to Thailand hassle free by the Autumn/Winter seems realistic.

A key figure to watch for is the number of new Covid 19 cases after Songkran. If there is no, or a minor increase I think the odds are good all entry testing requirements will be lifted for June. If there are significantly increasing numbers of infections after Songkran, then there will be a further delay.

There are conflicting reports one whether Songkran will be water free. They did initaily say there would be no water chucking allowed, but now some are reporting 'light water sprinkling' will be allowed...

 

I have not missed songkran, one bit.

Ah Songkran, definitely wont miss getting freezing cold water sprayed on me and tiny plastic water bags pelting me. Oh and the wonderful baby powder in my eyes while driving a motorbike on slick roads shivering hyterically.

If the Thai government does indeed cancel all the protocols, I know where my next holiday will be ;)

It wasn’t super difficult to enter the Philippines last month (proof of vaccination, negative covid test, medical insurance proof and health pass registration) but it was a bit of a pain in the neck. When I return in July to see my girl I hope they have followed Thailand’s direction and eliminate a lot of the paperwork.
