Thailand Creating New Health and Safety Standards for Tourism

A group of Thailand’s leading Destination Management Companies (DMCs) have developed the new Thailand Hygiene Plus Initiative (THPI) in the wake of the devastation wrought on the tourism industry by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The standards incorporate, but aren’t limited to, those included in the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s ‘Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration’ (SHA) Certification Programthat was launched in May 2020 as a method for identifying businesses—including hotels, attractions, eateries, transport companies, tour operators and more—that have passed official inspection for implementing all appropriate COVID-19 hygiene and quality-control methods.

The new THPI’s aim is to advance a step further toward solidifying confidence in Thailand as a destination, as well as its tourism facilitators, as being safe for travel as the country begins its phased reopening to international visitors.
