Allowing almost everything with social distancing precautions: colour-coded zones removed, outdoor mask-wearing is voluntary, as the country is stepping into post-pandemic.

BANGKOK – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to provide an update on the latest announcement by the Royal Thai Government to lift the nationwide COVID-19 restrictions in line with the country’s plan to downgrade COVID-19 to an endemic status in July.

Published in the Royal Thai Government Gazette on 23 June, 2022, and with immediate effect, the announcement removed the colour-coded zoning, thus redesignating Bangkok and all other 76 provinces a green zone.

Outdoor mask-wearing has been endorsed as voluntary although the public are still advised to wear a face mask in crowded places, such as, public transport, markets, and concert venues, or for people with certain health conditions.

Restaurants and eateries are allowed to serve dine-in customers alcoholic beverages in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations, as well as communicable disease control guidelines.

Entertainment venues including pubs, bars, and karaoke lounges that have been certified with the Thai Stop COVID 2 Plus by the Ministry of Public Health are also allowed to operate in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations, as well as communicable disease control guidelines.

Group gatherings in crowded places are allowed, but those with more than 2,000 participants must receive advance permission from respective authorities in Bangkok or the other 76 provinces.
