NEW DELHI: India’s favorite neighboring vacation spot Thailand has finally reopened for desi travelers. However, at present, there is no air bubble between India and Thailand due to which there are no commercial flights between them. The two countries are working to create an air bubble, also giving Indian airlines a well-deserved break.
The Southeast Asian tourist magnet has allowed fully vaccinated visitors from 78 countries, including India, under its “sandbox” programs that list conditions for travelers. The Serum Institute of India (Covishield) is included in the list of accepted vaccines which includes, among others, Pfizer and Moderna.
