TAT understands that the move comes in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation in Thailand

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to inform international and domestic tourists that Thai Prime Minister, General Prayut Chan-o-cha, has invoked the “Emergency Decree” across the nation, effective from tomorrow, 26 March to 30 April, 2020.

TAT understands that the move comes in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation in Thailand, which sees a total of 934 accumulated confirmed infections today including 107 new cases. So far the virus has claimed four lives in Thailand. Thus the “Emergency Decree” has been invoked to allow the Prime Minister to launch appropriate measures to prevent and mitigate the spread of the virus.

In addition to previously announced measures, including temporary closure of venues, cancellation of events and festivals, etc., the Prime Minister said more measures would be announced to limit people’s movements.
