And if you were planning on packing your bags for short trips or weekend getaways, this seems like a far-fetched dream so far.

A tourist must declare his long-term residence in Thailand. These can be hotel reservations, leases, or condominium documents as per the Conde Nast report.

Individuals traveling to Thailand must submit a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of their arrival, and travelers must undergo a second test after landing.
