The Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration on Tuesday approved visas for 11,000 potential investors, business travelers and foreigners with work permits.

Government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said Thailand is continuing to reopen to potential investors who can come for business deals and stay only short–term without having to undergo 14-day quarantine.

The spokesman said investors who have high potential to help stimulate the economy will be targeted with special disease-control measures.

Agencies concerned are mapping out the plan and will propose the measures to the ad-hoc committee tasked with considering the relaxation of lockdown restriction and chaired by the secretary-general of the National Security Council, Anucha said.

The issue will be forwarded to the Prime Minister later.

Initially, they must pass a coronavirus test before traveling and be required to have Covid-19 health insurance coverage worth at least US$100,000, he added.
