Southeast Asia will open its borders in earnest from November, which had been closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to Southeast Asian media and foreign media on the 31st, Thailand is the country that reopens its borders on the largest scale.

From the 1st of next month, visitors from 46 countries, including Korea, who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed to enter the country without quarantine.

After arriving in Thailand, you can stay in a hotel for one or two days after having a negative test for COVID-19, and if the PCR test is negative, you can freely roam around Thailand.

Singapore, which has the world’s highest completion rate of COVID-19 vaccination with 84%, has already started reopening from this month, and it will be further expanded in November.

Singapore, which has been implementing ‘With Corona’, which coexists while managing COVID-19 since August, has been conducting non-quarantine entry for 10 countries, including the US and UK, and those who have already been vaccinated against COVID-19 since mid-May.

On the 8th of next month, Australia and Switzerland, and from the 15th, South Korea will be added to the ‘Countries without quarantine’ list, respectively.

From the 15th of next month, Malaysia will open the resort island of Langkawi to foreigners as well.

However, tourists can visit the island only if they have travel insurance of at least $80,000 (about 94 million won). You must also complete your COVID-19 vaccination and stay on the island for at least 3 days.

Vietnam will also test open some tourist destinations such as Phu Quoc Island to overseas visitors who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 from the 20th of next month.

It is known that the policy is to quarantine for 7 days upon arrival, but Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported on the 28th that overseas visitors who tested negative for COVID-19 do not need to be quarantined.

Indonesia has opened Bali, Bintan, and Batam Islands to foreign tourists who have been vaccinated from 18 countries, including Korea, China, and Japan, from the 14th of this month.

Cambodia also decided to open Sihanoukville and Koh Rong Island, which are marine sports attractions, and Dara Sakor, a resort area, from the 30th of next month for those who have been vaccinated.

In contrast, the Philippines, Myanmar, and Laos are not ready to reopen yet due to a high number of corona19 confirmed cases or a coup d’état.
