Visa A holders get to quarantine at Himawari Hotel

The Ministry of Health has permitted foreign diplomats, UN and International NGO officials to undergo quarantine at Himawari Hotel in the capital in case they do not have a separate place suitable for this purpose, but the government would not be responsible for the expenses.

In a letter to Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Prak Sokhonn on July 15, health minister Mam Bun Heng explained that self-quarantine by the officials is allowed only if they have a separate place to stay during the period.

He noted that an apartment building is not regarded as a separate location because its lift is shared by all tenants.

“Diplomats who cannot do quarantine at their embassy, and UN or international NGO officials holding Visa A who do not have a separate residence can undergo quarantine at Himawari hotel, with all expenses being the responsibility of the individuals or their institution,” Bun Heng said.
