Amid the concerns on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). TAT would like to assure all tourists that Thailand has robust health surveillance systems and effect measures for disease control.

These stringent health surveillance systems help tourism and travel activities go on as usual
TAT would like to emphasise that the Thai tourism industry will do everything possible to strictly implement preventive measures and heighten active surveillance for all tourists in Thailand to protect all from being exposed to the virus. This is consistent with the policy of the Thai tourism industry to provide and maintain quality services.
Our recommendations for all incoming visitors are to “travel safely” by practising daily hygiene habits: frequently wash hands with water and soap or alcohol gel; avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth; strictly comply with the recommendations of “eat cooked food, use serving spoons and wash hands”, and wear hygienic masks when in a crowded area.
While travelling, avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms, avoid visiting crowded places, and wear a surgical mask if you have respiratory symptoms.
The TAT’s offices in Thailand and around the world are ready to help and act as coordination centres for those people wanting any information updates on the COVID-19 situation in Thailand.
