HOW SWISS CAN ENTER THAILAND DURING CORONAVIRUS

HOW SWISS CAN ENTER THAILAND DURING CORONAVIRUS

iVisa | Updated on Apr 28, 2020

There are multiple places in our world that are very similar to others. When you visit them, you are instantaneously taken to another place. For example, we all know Machu Picchu, the ancient Incan citadel in Peru. It is well-know that this World Wonder is crowded due to its spectacular ruins. Nonetheless, a great alternative to Machu Picchu is Choquequirao, another citadel of ruins that resembles Machu Picchu perfectly. Even though they are located in the same city, Cuzco, that doesn't mean places in different countries can seem alike. For example, in Thailand, there is a mountainous region located in Chiang Rai that looks like a small Switzerland. Definitely a must for any Swiss citizen who is visiting Thailand.

Even though everything seems uncanny due to the current outbreak our world is experiencing, the Thai government is taking actions to impulse tourism and decrease the spread of the COVID-19. One of them is the Thailand Health Certificate (T.8. Form), an electronic health declaration that iVisa will gladly process for you.You just need to apply here and check the FAQs below for further information.
