Thailand issues new 20 baht banknotes
The Bank of Thailand launched a new 20 baht banknote made of polyester from March 24th and started distribution. Polyester banknotes are said to be resistant to moisture and dirt and to extend the life of banknotes.

According to the Bank of Thailand, 20 baht banknotes are the most frequently used banknotes, and they are more dirty and damaged than other banknotes, so they decided to provide clean, durable banknotes that are resistant to dirt. For the purpose, they states that they changed the material of banknotes from paper to polyester, which is a special plastic that does not absorb moisture and dirt.

The new banknotes have the same design and look the same as the old banknotes, but the texture is different due to the new material.

From April 1st today, pre-departure PCR tests are no longer required when entering Thailand.
Until March 31, all travelers entering Thailand had to have a negative certificate that had a PCR test within 72 hours before the flight, but from April 1st today, this PCR test will no longer be required. All travelers are eligible.

Other entry conditions vary depending on the entry scheme.

If a fully vaccinated traveler enters the country with the Test & Go scheme, they must stay overnight at a designated hotel to undergo a PCR test, and a self-managed ATK test have to be conducted on the 5th day of entry and they have to report the result.

Unvaccinated travelers will be admitted under an alternative quarantine scheme. In this case, they must be quarantined in an approved hotel or resort for 5 days and have to have a negative PCR test on the last day of quarantine.

To enter Thailand by plane, all travelers need to obtain a Thailand Pass (QR code). You can apply for and obtain the Thailand Pass from the official website operated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand.

The future schedule announced by the Thai government is as follows.
April 1: Abolition of PCR test in country of departure
May 1: Replaced entry PCR test with ATK test
June 1: All entory restrictions abolished
July 1: Endemic Declaration

It is expected that many foreign tourists will return to Thailand once the entry restrictions are lifted and the endemic is declared.

This schedule is subject to stable infections, and attention is being paid to whether the infections will worsen in Songkran in April. According to a report on March 31, the capital of Bangkok banned water splashing during this year's Songkran period. It is the third consecutive year that water slpashing of Sonkran is banned.

Splashing Water of Songkran in Bangkok will be banned
At a meeting between the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and CCSA on March 28, it was reported that splashing water would be permitted once during the Songkran period.

However, the CCSA has since made a final decision to ban all of the alcohol, foam parties, water splashing, and powdering at Songkran venues to prevent further spread of infection. This decision will be officially announced on April 1st.

Businesses on Khao San Road and Silom Road have asked BMA for permission to water splashing during the Songkran period, but this ban decision is likely to make this year's Songkran a tough year for those businesses to not expect profits.

However, Thailand is promoting a lot of deregulation, such as deregulation of entry Kingdom. We pray that all businesses that have been severely damaged by the pandemic will be able to return to normal as soon as possible.
