On 25 June, the National Security Council proposed to extend the state of emergency.


  • The state of emergency was extended twice and is due to end on 30 June. The decision will be considered at the Cabinet meeting next Tuesday.
  • The final phase of relaxation will be introduced in July. As such, the extension for another month is being considered as a measure to help manage the next phase of reopening and prevent a second wave of outbreak.
  • On 1 July, schools and high-risk businesses, such as nightclubs and entertainment venues, will reopen. The restrictions on malls’ operating hours will also be lifted. This will be the fifth and final phase of reopening.
  • High-risk businesses that are allowed to reopen in the final phase are required to adhere to the conditions provided, e.g. closure at midnight for entertainment venues, number of patrons to be capped at five and a prohibition of sales promotion activities.
  • On 1 July, the country is also reopening borders to allow selected groups of foreign travellers including business executives and investors
    professionals, skilled workers, permanent residents and foreigners with families in Thailand, international teachers and students. A 14-day quarantine will be required.
