BANGKOK, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha announced Monday a plan to allow fully-vaccinated visitors from "low risk" countries to enter the Southeast Asian country without quarantine from next month.

"I have instructed the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration and the Ministry of Public Health to urgently consider within this week to allow, as of Nov. 1, international visitors to enter Thailand without any requirement for quarantine if they are fully vaccinated and arrive by air from low-risk countries," Prayut said via a televised address.

The list will initially include at least 10 countries, such as Britain, Singapore, Germany, China and the United States, Prayut said.

The low-risk and quarantine-free list of countries will be extended by December 1 and moved to "a very extensive list" by Jan. 1, 2022, he said.
