Thailand To Further Reopen For Investors

Published

on

BANGKOK, Oct 6 – Thai government has planned to reopen further for potential investors, who will come for business deals and stay short–term visit after it allowed foreigners with work permits and some groups of tourists to enter the country under strict disease control measures.

Government spokesman, Anucha Burapachaisri said the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) approved visas for 11,000 businesspeople and foreigners with work permits, Thai news agency (TNA) reported. They agreed to enter alternative state quarantine for 14 days.

Starting from Oct 1, Special Tourist Visa (STV) is offered to tourists from no risk and low risk countries. They are required to complete 14-day quarantine upon arrivals.

The spokesman said now, the government targets to reopen for investors who will come to negotiate business deals as this group has the high potential to help stimulate the economy.

As they are likely to come for short-term visits, special measures are needed for this group of travellers.

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, he said.

The issue will be forwarded to the Prime Minister later.

Initially, they must travel with the Covid-test result, conducted within 72 hours before entering Thailand and they are required to have COVID-19 health insurance coverage worth at least US$100,000, he added.

Do-Dodonpa is a steel roller coaster located at Fuji-Q Highland in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan. The launched coaster uses compressed air to propel its trains. It opened on 21 December 2001 as the fastest roller coaster in the world with the fastest acceleration, reaching a top speed of 172 km/h in 1.8 seconds. The fastest speed record was previously held by ‘Superman: The Escape’ and ‘Tower of Terror’, both of which accelerated to 160.9 km/h in 7 seconds.

The ride was refurbished in 2017, removing the top hat element in favor of a vertical loop and increasing its speed and acceleration to 180 km/h in 1.6 seconds. The Do-Dodonpa roller coaster was shut down in the month of August 2021 after several riders reported broken bones.

The only incident before 2020 December that raised concerns occurred on 15 May 2007, when a 37-year-old man sustained a minor injury after a plastic cover at the front of the train came loose and hit his right knee. An architecture professor who specializes in coaster designs told that the injuries could possibly be the outcome of rapid acceleration.
