Thailand’s Covid-19 Administration to meet this Friday about possibly eliminating the emergency decree and to review Covid-19 restrictions

Bangkok –

The general meeting of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha, will consider reviewing the implementation of the Emergency Decree on Friday, September 10th, the CCSA reported today.

The upcoming meeting, according to local media, will further discuss all five sections of the Emergency Decree and the Decree implementation nationwide, which expires based on current orders on September 30th.

The proposal essentially is that the government would instead utilize the Communicable Disease Act B.E. 2558 and similar laws, which will result in the revocation of the CCSA and the relevant agencies. The Ministry of Public Health and its relevant departments would be responsible from October 1st onwards if approved.

This could also, notes TPN media, mean that a COE to enter Thailand for visitors from an embassy or consulate could be no longer needed, which would be welcomed by visitors and tourists.

Additionally, the CCSA will also review the last two weeks of easing Covid19 restrictions in 29 maximum control zones and consider potentially easing further restrictions. It is also likely a review of the current zones will take place and potentially changes.

We will provide full details this Friday following the meeting.
