Canadians should not travel to border areas with Burma (Myanmar), which are off the main highways, due to ongoing violence and banditry. Recent clashes have involved Shan State Army guerrillas against Burma's United Wa State Army (UWSA) guerrillas and Burmese military. Travellers should consult the Thai Tourist Police to determine if official border crossing points are open. Borders should be crossed at designated crossing points only.

Canadians arriving from areas affected by severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) - such as Canada (Toronto), Vietnam (Hanoi), Singapore, Taiwan, and the People's Republic of China including the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region - will be required to undergo medical examinations at health control points at Thai international airports. Travellers arriving from affected areas who do not demonstrate symptoms will be required to wear protective face masks throughout the duration of their stay. Travellers with symptoms of SARS will quarantined for up to 14 days or refused entry into Thailand.

For specific information on entry procedures, you should check with the Thai Embassy).

Heightened tensions as a result of the Iraq situation, together with increased threats globally from terrorism, put Canadians at greater risk. Canadians should maintain a high level of personal security awareness at all times as the security situation could deteriorate rapidly without notice. The bomb attack in Bali indicated that terrorists will target places where tourists gather. Canadians should therefore exercise extreme caution, particularly in commercial, public, and tourist areas frequented by foreigners, monitor local developments, avoid crowds and demonstrations, and register and remain in regular contact with the nearest Canadian government office or the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (call collect 613-996-8885).

Outbreaks of violence occurred in the southern provinces of Narathiwat, Yala, Songkhala, and Pattaini between May and October 2002. These included arson and bomb attacks at schools, places of worship, government offices, police stations, and a hotel. Travellers should exercise extreme caution and monitor local news reports.

This Public Announcement is being issued to clarify for U.S. citizens information about the Thai government’s response to the SARS epidemic. The Royal Thai Government has announced new measures for arriving travelers due to the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) situation. This Public Announcement expires on July 3, 2003.

The Royal Thai Government announced the following protective measures applicable as of April 3, 2003, to passengers arriving at Thai points-of-entry (including international airports in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Hat Yai, and Ko Samui) from Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Vietnam. These measures apply to Thai nationals and foreigners and do not differentiate between persons originating from the five listed locations and those who merely transited those countries. Thai authorities, including health care professionals, will perform a quarantine inspection of all aircraft arriving from the listed countries. All disembarking passengers and crew are required to fill out a Health Control Document prior to proceeding to quarantine inspection. Passengers and crew transiting Bangkok who elect to remain on the aircraft are exempted from the quarantine inspection.

All persons suspected of SARS infection may be isolated and quarantined for up to 14 days. The Royal Thai Government strongly recommends that Thai travelers arriving from the listed countries quarantine themselves at home for 14 days. The Thai government also urges expatriates residing in Thailand returning from any of the listed countries remain at home for 14 days. Government offices, schools, and private sector businesses are strongly encouraged to permit all employees returning from the listed countries to remain at home for the full 14-day period.

The situation in Thailand is evolving, and we expect that the Thai authorities may alter their procedures as the situation changes.
