Thailand set to scrap PCR testing

Sunday, Apr 10, 2022 0

Thailand is expected to ditch the requirement for PCR tests for foreign visitors to be replaced by antigen tests. The change was proposed by the Public Health Ministry and agreed in principle, Deputy Public Health Minister Sathit Pitutecha said.

Government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana said the change is expected to be implemented from next month. Foreign travellers will take the antigen tests upon arrival with 15-30 minutes wait time for the test result. This will remove the need to book hotels and wait overnight, as currently requiremed for PCR tests, Sathit said.
