Consumer information: Thailand

ABTA can confirm that a coup has been declared in Thailand by the military, with a nationwide curfew being put in place between 00:01 and 04:00 daily, until further notice. 

Although the curfew is nationwide and applies to tourists as well as locals, all political demonstrations have to date taken place in Bangkok with no reports of any incidents affecting tourists in the region, and the Foreign Office has not changed its overall advice relating to Thailand, meaning that travel arrangements to the country continue as normal.

ABTA advises all holidaymakers in Thailand to adhere to terms of the curfew, avoid any local demonstrations and follow advice from their tour operator. 

Independent travellers are advised to check local advice and follow the Foreign Office travel advice.

ABTA will continue to monitor the situation and liaise with the Foreign Office.
