After the Covid-19 pandemic hit, any popular travel destinations imposed restrictions in one form or the other. Thailand continues to be a popular destination for many global travelers. Thailand has now announced the resumption of visa free travel to Thailand from 56 countries. Citizens from these 56 countries can now travel to Thailand without having to apply for a visa. However, they still need to comply with a few more requirements.

Travel Daily Media reports that citizens of the following countries can travel to Thailand Visa Free:
- Brunei Darussalam
- Czech Republic
- Principality of Liechtenstein
- The Netherlands
- New Zealand
- San Marino
- Slovak Republic

Thailand continues to be one of my favorite travel destinations around Asia. During my last trip, I visited Koh Samui and stayed at a fantastic Hilton property, the Conrad Koh Samui. For instance, the breathtaking views from our Villa still flash fondly in front of my eyes, even after four years.
However, travelers must comply with Covid-19 testing restrictions. Firstly, travelers must provide a negative Covid-19 test result 72 hours before their flight. Secondly, they must also comply with mandatory quarantine requirements upon arrival. In addition, travelers must also undergo three Covid-19 tests while in quarantine.
On one hand, many travelers will greatly welcome this news it’s technically an easing up of travel restrictions. On the other hand, travelers must comply with stringent requirements before and after arrival. For many folks, this still may be a major barrier before they plan travel.
