The government is easing travel restrictions for citizens from 56 countries to boost tourism, though visitors still have a two-week hotel quarantine.

Tourists from countries including Australia, France and the United States can travel without visas, but would need a certificate to show they are free of Covid-19 72 hours before travel and a booking at a quarantine hotel, Taweesilp Visanuyothin, from for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), said.

Visitors would have a two-week quarantine period after arriving.

While in quarantine, arrivals would undergo three Covid-19 tests, up from two required previously.

Travellers from other countries not included in Thursday's announcement could still be eligible for a 90-day special tourist visa.
