Bangkok, 24 April, 2021 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to inform travellers that a number of provinces across Thailand have been issuing orders to impose fines on those not wearing masks in public places amid the nationwide effort to contain the new wave of COVID-19 infections.
TAT would like to remind all that mask wearing is taken seriously in Thailand, even in provinces that have yet to made it compulsory. Face marks should be worn at all times for both your personal safety and for those around you.
According to the Ministry of Interior, a fine up to 20,000 Baht will be imposed on those for not wearing masks in both indoor and outdoor public spaces in the following provinces.
Kanchanaburi (only at markets, flea markets and floating markets)
Prachuap Khiri Khan
Si Sa Ket
Nakhon Si Thammarat
Once again, TAT would like to remind all travellers to take DMHTT precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19: D – Distancing, M – Mask wearing, H – Handwashing, T – Temperature check, and T – Thai Chana contact tracing application.
