BANGKOK -- Thailand decided on Thursday to resume its quarantine-free entry program for all vaccinated travelers from Feb. 1, as the kingdom has experienced low hospitalization and mortality rates due to the omicron COVID variant despite surging cases.

Before resumption of the program, only 63 countries and territories were eligible for quarantine-free entry. From February, the program is open to all, however two PCR tests are required. Visitors must take one upon arrival and another on the fifth day of their stay.
