Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said the decision to reopen comes with “some risks”.

But he expressed his hope of reviving the tourism industry after reporting an estimated loss of around £37bn in tourism revenue last year, the BBC reported.

Thailand will be reopened to more countries from 1 December.

The country has recorded 10,000 coronavirus positive infections daily since July.

In a TV program, Mr Chan-o-cha said: “When they come, they should present [negative] COVID test…and test again on arrival. “

He issued a stern warning to act immediately if there is a spike in coronavirus infections or a new Covid variant.

Double jabs have been rolled out to 33% of its nearly 70 million people, while half of Thailand’s population has a vaccine against the coronavirus.

Thailand had 40 million visitors in 2019, before the coronavirus pandemic swept the world in a deadly pandemic.
