Hanoi (VNA) –
Thailand’s Immigration Bureau on April 16 announced that it will reopen 23 land border gates as from April 18 for Thai citizens who wish to return from neighbouring countries.
Only Thai nationals would be allowed to enter the country after obtaining a health certificate and permission from the respective Thai embassies.

They are also obliged to take 14-day quarantine upon their return.

Foreigners will not be allowed to enter Thailand except for diplomats or work permit holders.

Thailand closed its border gates on March 20 as part of the state of emergency lockdown orders imposed to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. The closures have left many Thais stranded in Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia./.
