From 1 July, the Thai government will step back from providing state quarantine funded from the state exchequer to citizens who return from abroad by air or sea. Such returnees will have to pay for their 14 day quarantine at private hotels certified by the government.

The government will continue funding the cost of quarantine facilities for those persons.
