CS:GO travel ban on airlines, hotels, car rentals and resorts lifted for Thailand

The United States has lifted the travel ban targeting citizens from six countries, but travelers will still be barred from traveling to Thailand.

Travelers will now be allowed to visit the country but will be required to obtain a visa and remain at least 500 meters (1,000 feet) away from anyone who is prohibited from boarding a plane.

This means a travel trailer rental company like DreamRentals will be unable to rent an airfare to Thailand and a luxury hotel chain like The Hilton will not be able to offer a reservation to travelers.

Traveler visas will still require a two-page form from the Department of Homeland Security, which includes a photo ID.

The DHS has previously said the restrictions were designed to protect the U.S. from terrorist attacks, but critics say the restrictions have led to a rise in terrorism.

Travel to Thailand has been banned since June 15, 2015, after a U.K.-based terror group called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack in which one man was killed and at least 20 others injured.

It was one of the deadliest attacks in recent U.E. history.

Thailand has since then been targeted by several terrorist attacks.

The U.N. has said it was hit by a wave of terrorist attacks in Thailand in January 2017 and October 2017, and has said more than 100 people have been killed since then.
