iVisa | Updated on Apr 22, 2020

Thailand is a popular destination for Korean citizens since it is one of the easiest countries to access and the most accommodating, compared to other countries nearby. As a matter of fact, Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, has a Koreatown in the Sukhumvit Plaza area near Sukhumvit Soi 12, where Koreans can find numerous Korean restaurants and attractions. In this uncanny context, where everything seems to be uncertain, it is difficult to think that tourism is a main concern for governments around the world. Nothing more further from reality! The Thai government, as a measure to impulse tourism and decrease the spread of the COVID-19, has released the Thailand Health Certificate (T.8. Form), an official document that you can obtain by applying here.
