Bangkok to reopen in October
According to Thai Prime Minister's official residence spokesman Tanakan Wanboon Konchana, he mentioned plans to reopen the country to foreign tourists in accordance with the policies of Prime Minister and Defense Minister Prayut Chan-O-cha.

Currently, Phuket, Phang Nga, Krabi, Surat Thani, etc. have already been reopened as the first phase of the plan. The Thai government considers the reopening of these areas to be a successful example of the reopening.

The second phase of the plan is the resumption of Bangkok, Chonburi, Phetchaburi, Prachuwap Kiri Khan and Chiang Mai in October. The third phase of the plan will reopen another 21 provinces(Northern Region, Lamphun, Play, Nan, Mae Hong Son, Chen Lai, Sukhothai, Northeastern, Udon Thani, Nong Khai, Buen Khan, Ubon Ratchathani, Western Region, Kanchanaburi, Ratchathani, Eastern Region, Rayong, Chanthaburi, Trat, Central Region, Ayutthaya, Southern Region, Nong Khai Tamarat, Satun), it means whole country reopen completely.

In addition, the Thai government plans to encourage people in Thailand to travel domestically through the "We Travel Together Project", which is a project of various travel support systems such as 40% of the cost of tourist hotels, 600 baht meal coupon per night etc. Registration for this project is scheduled to begin in September in time for October, which is the high season for tourism in Thailand.

Thai Prime Minister Prayut has already ordered to plan and implement COVID-19 infection control measures to protect the safety of tourists in order to promote these plans.

The fourth phase of the plan is to reopen 13 provinces which are neibouring on the border with other countries in January 2022, allowing people to freely enter and leave the country without quarantine by the scheme of travel bubble with neighboring countries.

Bus vaccination started in Bangkok
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has launched a pilot bus vaccination service on Wednesday, September 8th. The target of inoculation is mainly elderly people and other vulnerable people living in Bangkok. It will promote speedup of inoculation by inoculating people at bus who have difficulty moving to the inoculation site.

Elderly people and some vulerable people such as who are in wheelchairs received the vaccination on the pilot start date on September 8 have said that they had been in trouble because they could not go to the vaccination site, but they were able to get the vaccination by this bus and it's very convenient.

According to the Governor of Bangkok, once the pilots are done and the procedure is complete, the bus will move to different locations every day to inoculate more people.

Only five or six people are needed to operate this vaccination bus, a driver, three health care workers who administer the vaccine, and one or two staff members to handle the paperwork. This bus allows more than 1,000 people to be inoculated daily.

The development of vaccination against the COVID-19 in Thailand is far behind that of neighboring countries, and currently only about 16.5% of the 72 million inhabitants nationwide have been vaccinated.

Currently, Phuket has reopened its borders on July 1st under the Sandbox Program and Koh Samui has reopened on July 15th under the Koh Samui Plus Program. From now on, Chonburi, Chiang Mai and Hua Hin are scheduled to reopen on October 1st, and the long-sought reopening of Bangkok is scheduled to reopen on November 1st. In order for these regions to reopen their borders, the rate of two vaccinations must exceed 70%.

According to an article in the Bangkok Post on August 27, 87% of the residents of Bangkok as of August 27 have already completed their first vaccination. As the first inoculation, the inoculation rate of 70%, which is the condition for resumption, has been cleared, but only 27% of the people have completed the second inoculation. We hope that this vaccination bus will reach a 70% vaccination rate by the end of October and will be a great help for Bangkok to reopen on November 1st.

Singapore begins quarantine exemption for vaccinated people with Germany and Brunei; it is not yet stared with Thailand.
Singapore launched the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL), which is a new system for accepting vaccinated travelers without quarantine on Thursday, September 8th.

First of all, it targets for travelers from Germany and Brunei. You will need to apply for a travel permit in advance and then use a dedicated flight to enter Singapore.

Royal Brunei Airlines and Singapore Airlines will operate between Singapore and Brunei (Singapore Airlines will operate from September 15th).

Meanwhile, between Singapore and Germany, Singapore Airlines operates VTL-only flights from September 16th. Lufthansa will also operate flights from Frankfurt.

If the domestic infection situation does not worsen in the future, the plan is to expand to other countries.

Regarding Thailand, talks were being held between Thailand and Singapore to start a travel bubble in April this year, but since then the infection situation of the spread of coronavirus in Thailand has deteriorated, and talks have not progressed.

Until now, Thailand has implemented a policy to completely eliminate viruses, but due to the spread of vaccines and plans to import therapeutic medicines, the policy has begun to change to "Life with COVID-19". In the future, Chonburi and Chiang Mai provinces are scheduled to resume to overseas travelers in October. Bangkok is scheduled to reopen in November. After that, discussions on the travel bubble are scheduled to begin with some countries.

Thailand's tourism industry has been severely damaged, and it is hoped that the Thai border will be opened as soon as possible. Tourists from Singapore also bring tourism benefits to Thailand. Following Germany and Brunei, it is hoped that the day when the quarantine will disappear between Thailand and Singapore will come as soon as possible.

The Singaporean government permits entry without quarantine for travel from Category 1, which the country considers to be the lowest risk, with or without vaccination. As of September 8, only four countries / regions are covered: Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China. Thailand is not included in the target countries.
