BANGKOK -- Thailand will allow quarantine-free entry to travelers from 46 countries and territories, including the U.S., China and the U.K., from Nov. 1 in a bid to boost tourist inflows into an economy ravaged by floods and COVID-19.

Thursday's announcement was well above the 10 countries that the government had earlier proposed for its plan to reopen to international visitors.
