Thailand closes borders to foreigners

Thailand has closed all of its borders - land, sea and air - to foreigners trying to enter the country.
However, borders will remain open to Thais returning from overseas and to foreigners who are in possession of a valid work permit. Diplomats will also be able to still enter the country.
Τhe partial closure of borders was one of a number of measures confirmed by the Thai government on Wednesday as part of its recently announced emergency decree.
Borders will be closed from 26 March 2020.
Business such as factories, hospitals, banks, government agencies, transportation and security can remain open.
The elderly, those with pre-existing health conditions and children aged under 5 years old have been advised to stay home.
Only essential travel between provinces is advised.
No curfew is yet in place.

Emergency Directive ... effective 26 May-30 April First Order .. under constant review.
Abstracted from Thai government broadcast
Summary points:

Existing provincial systems and restrictions remain.
Can be enhanced locally subject to Provincial Governor
No entering thailand by air with the exception of thai citizens, who need a fit to fly certificate
Internal flights unaffected but with additional screening
Goods in and out unaffected
No large gatherings
No fake news
Government officers to prepare eg registration of healthcare professionals, healthcare establishments etc
If situation worsens directives will be strengthened to be a direct order rather than a strong recommendation.

People should to stay at home especially people older than 70 or health issues, children less than 5 yrs unless for essential travel.
Travel to other provinces should not be undertaken unless important
Checks will be undertaken at provincial borders eg temperature check, reason for travel, social distancing, the phone monitoring application maybe required, id is essential.
Mask wearing mandatory
Quarantine for 14 days may be required if high temperature detected.
Necessary travel only is allowed
Factories, banks, atm, takeaway food outlets, dept stores open for food and essential products, pharmacies, hospitals, online delivery, factories all allowed
No curfew at this first order, but will review by 30 April.

Essentially existing situation with some additional travel restrictions within thailand, very restricted for travel into thailand itself, increased levels of checking.

The first Order will be reviewed and if the covid situation deteriorates further, more restrictive Orders will be introduced.

No curfew yet, but partial lockdown is here — Wissanu



The government has no plans for the time being to impose a curfew to stem the spread of the coronavirus but will stringently enforce restrictions on travel and gatherings as the state of emergency starts taking effect after midnight of Wednesday, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngarm said this afternoon.

But he did not rule out the possibility of a curfew being declared if the ongoing efforts to fight the deadly virus failed.
Wissanu said initial restrictions issued under the state of emergency decree imposed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha include a ban on non-Thais travelling into the country.
There are few exceptions for Bangkok-based diplomats who need to return to Thailand from overseas trips and pilots and flight attendants of airlines that still operate. But they all need to have fit-to-fly certificates. The same requirement also applies to Thai citizens wanting to return to Thailand.
