Bangkok Governor Submits 2am Closing Proposal To CCSA

The new Bangkok governor has submitted a proposal to the CCSA committee to extend the operating hours of entertainment venues in the capital from midnight to 2am.

Governor Chadchart Sittipunt also wants mandatory mask-wearing outdoors scrapped in a bid to boost tourism in the city.

Officially only venues in the three designated “entertainment zones” – Ratchadaphisek Road, Royal City Avenue (RCA) and Patpong – can open until 2am outwith the current Covid closing times.

However, pubs and clubs across the city can and do close much later with some partying all the way through until sunrise with local law enforcement accepting donations to turn a blind eye.

As expected, those in the nightlife business are behind the new proposals and encourage the decision-makers at the CCSA to see sense and allow business to return back to “normal”.

The outcome will be known by the end of the week following the general meeting of the CCSA this coming Friday.

Thailand Pass Scheme Dropped From Today

The Thailand Pass registration scheme and the US$10,000 health insurance requirement for foreign visitors have officially been dropped, effective 1st July 2022.

From today, foreign nationals are only required to show proof of vaccination or a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test result within 72 hours of travel.

These can either be in print or digital format.

Random checks will be made on arrivals at international airports and land border checkpoints bringing an end to congestion and lengthy queues.

With the removal of all the hurdles and entry to Thailand returning to pre-covid normal, it is hoped arrivals will increase over the coming months bringing back those much needed tourist dollars.

Of course, it’s not just the nightlife industry affected by the Buddhist holiday, there will be no alcohol on sale at your local 7-Eleven either for 48 hours, so plan ahead.

Friday 15th is also a public holiday but booze will be back for the weekend.
