Thailand is considering opening up to vaccinated tourists this summer.

The Southeast Asian nation, which is highly dependent on tourism, has signalled that it is thinking about axing the two-week quarantine requirement for travellers that have been vaccinated.

Today, the tourism minister announced that Thailand will open five provinces for international tourists: the island of Phuket; Surat Thani (which includes the islands of Ko Samui, Ko Phangan and Ko Tao); capital Bangkok; Chiang Mai; and Chonburi.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha has asked his government to look into vaccine certificates, reports Bloomberg, which could open up the country to inoculated visitors as early as 1 July.

In 2019, almost 40 million international tourists travelled to Thailand.
