Thailand is back open for business

Advice regarding travel to Thailand has been updated and the country is now back open for business for British travellers. The FCO website  advice against travel has been relaxed, although restrictions still apply to a number of areas, although these have been trouble spots for many years. The curfews which were put in place ended on the 29th May and the country will now begin its recovery to normal service for holidaymakers and business travellers. 

All travel to the South of Thailand, an area that has seen trouble for a number of years, continues to be advised against. These areas should continue to be avoided.

It is also wise to ensure you register with the FCO Locate Scheme.  This ensures that the FCO is aware of your presence in the country and is free to use.  it is an invaluable service should you be in any area of the world where there is trouble.
