Travel Insurance to Enter Thailand

With Thailand very slowly reopening to visitors, one of the latest requirements for visitors is the mandatory COVID-19 insurance plan for foreigners that covers the traveler for a minimum of $10,000 (the Thai policies generally cover 350 thousand Thai baht). In addition to all the requirements, the traveler needs to obtain a Thailand Pass and a valid visa. This health insurance is another level of security to make sure that the traveler can cover all costs in case they are diagnosed with or die from COVID-19 during their stay in the kingdom.

Thai immigration officials are notoriously fastidious when it comes to paperwork, and will only accept policies from certain providers. Luckily, a consortium of insurance providers in Thailand offers COVID-19 insurance for foreigners planning to visit Thailand which will be accepted by immigration, and these policies can be purchased easily online. Although this could be seen as another opportunity to make some easy profits for the insurers, the policies are quite reasonably priced, depending on a few factors; let’s take a closer look.

Why is COVID-19 Insurance Required?

Whilst it may seem like just yet another hassle for beleaguered foreigners wanting to enter the country, there is good reason for the government to implement this requirement. One of the main reasons is that almost all standard health and travel insurance policies will not cover the insured against pandemics, hence will not cover you for anything to do with Covid-19. And with the costs of hospital treatment and possible repatriation, especially when considering the additional quarantine requirements to do with COVID-19, the Thai government is concerned about being lumped with a huge number of unpaid hospital bills from foreigners who come down with COVID-19.

The public health ministry of Thailand has quoted a figure for unpaid hospital bills of 448 million Baht ($14.9M) for the year up to September 2019, a huge sum. And with the threat of the coronavirus, they are concerned about this and don’t want to be stuck with another huge bill right when the economy is struggling because of the effects that the virus has had on tourism and exports. In essence, the requirement to hold one of these policies is an additional layer of security for the Thai government who is already dealing with a hammered economy as a result of the outbreak and subsequent decimation of the tourism industry which provided around a fifth of the country’s GDP.

What is the COVID-19 Coverage?

The COVID-19 insurance policy will cover the costs of isolation, quarantine, testing, and treatment, and the possible costs of repatriating your body in the unfortunate circumstance of you succumbing to the virus whilst in Thailand. It will also cover the cost of any medications prescribed to you as a result of being infected with the virus. The more comprehensive policies will also cover you for any losses incurred as a result of you catching COVID-19 such as lost travel bookings and trip cancellation or curtailment, be sure to check the small print of any policy before purchasing and, as always with insurance, don’t just opt for the cheapest policy.

Ultimately, most of these specialized insurance policies will comprise of three key components:

  • Medical coverage. As mentioned this is a comprehensive package with a cap of a minimum of $10,000, covering all treatment costs associated with being infected with the COVID-19.
  • Life insurance coverage. In an unfortunate circumstance of the insured dying from their confirmed COVID-19 infection, this covers them for a total of $10,000 which will be paid to the beneficiary stated in the policy.
  • Any additional, unforeseen out-of-pocket expenses that arise as a result of you being infected with the virus. This could include lost travel bookings, flights, or any other expenses that arise from travel disruption or curtailment because of you becoming infected with the virus.

You must ensure that you retain the certificate of insurance as this will need to be shown to prove that you have the coverage, without it, you will not be granted entry into the country. Also, it should be noted that this policy will be in addition to any general health insurance policy that you may require to obtain your visa or retirement extensions.

COVID-19 Travel Insurance for Thailand

Unlike the mandatory health insurance for retirees, the COVID-19 insurance may be provided by an international insurance provider or by Thailand-based insurance providers. One of the COVID-19 insurance providers is AXA Thailand. They provide Inbound Travel Insurance for those who wish to secure Travel Insurance that covers COVID-19 as required for inbound travelers.

How To Purchase COVID-19 Travel Insurance?

This insurance is required to be allowed into the country so you will be purchasing this before you travel. The easiest way to buy your policy is online from one of the above providers who will then provide you with the all-important certificate of coverage to present to the authorities when you arrive (and you will also need to present it to the airline before they will allow you onboard). It’s quick and easy to do online, and you can choose your length of policy from 30 days to one year. Be sure that the policy covers the entire period that you are planning to stay in Thailand or you may be refused entry.

COVID Insurance Thailand Cost: Is It Expensive?

In a word, no, but it depends on a few factors. Although this is yet another burden and expense for foreign citizens trying to enter Thailand, it’s quite affordable. You can expect premiums to start from as little as 999 Thai baht for a policy. For the tourist visa or the non-immigrant visa application, the 90-day insurance coverage will cost 2,500 baht to 14,000 baht. As with all insurance policies, the premium will be determined by your circumstances, in this case, one of the most important factors is whether the country you are flying from is considered to be high or low risk for the virus.

Thailand COVID Insurance Requirement

The Thai Government has made it mandatory that foreign citizens entering Thailand have insurance coverage in case of medical needs during their stay. The insurance coverage becomes effective immediately upon your arrival in Thailand. Several foreigners have been reported to test positive for COVID-19 during their stay at the ASQ Hotel in Thailand. The COVID-19 Insurance Thailand for Foreigners completely covers their medical costs up to 350 thousand THB. You can purchase the insurance online in minutes using the Buy Now feature below. You will immediately receive the policy by email.

Summary

The cost of treatment for COVID 19 in hospitals in Thailand ranges from 700 USD to 1,000 USD per day, depending on the hospital. There may also be additional costs of staying in the intensive care unit (ICU). For foreigners who are positive for COVID-19, the cost of treatment and other medical expenses will be covered by the travel health insurance package. It is important to make sure that your insurance for Thailand covers the whole duration of your stay. Therefore, it is essential to purchase the best and reliable COVID 19 travel insurance for foreigners entering Thailand.

    In terms of the dates to be indicated, do we only put the date range of our travel (i.e. Sept 5 to 11)? And if yes, would the insurance still covers us in case of hospitalization in Thailand starting Sept 11 onwards?

    I am flying to Sydney from London through Bangkok and will be at Bangkok airport for only 2 hours. I am 75 and am as vaccinated as it is possible to be 3rd booster shot was on 14th June prior to leaving Australia. I have never had Covid but take all precautions -masks, hygiene, social distance and full vaccination. Do I still need to get the travel insurance to get this Thailand Pass. (If it is that dangerous I will cancel the flight and rearrange my stopovers to avoid Thailand!)

    Good day,
    Please advise how accurate the Thai Pass Medical insurance cover must be. I have a quote for £8m (which with todays exchange rate is cover of USD 9 841,960.00) but this is not quite USD10m. I do not want to purchase the insurance cover and it is rejected by the Thai Travel Pass authorities and approval to travel is not given. (Traveller unfortunately is older than 74 yrs so cannot use the AXA insurance recommended).
    Thank you for advice please.

    I am travelling SYD-LHR via BKK and will be in the city for less than 24 hours on 6 june 2022. Do I still have to buy the covid19 medical insurance or is there a waiver for people transiting?
    I have my own travel insurance but it does not cover the virus.

      Hi Georgie,

      Yes, still recommended to have covid insurance for transited flights
      .

      Thank you

    Rex, I’m 74 and reside in Thailand with ‘O’ visa (1 year). I just travelled and had to buy travel insurance for return. I’m travelling again in June so knew the interval of my stay in Thailand. I travel frequently but irregularly. I’m confused that I need travel insurance to return to my home (where insurance is not required). How can I buy a policy in thailand that covers frequent exit/entry and living in Thailand?

      Hi Frank,

      Travel insurance with your covid coverage is just a single entry.

      Thank you

    I am a US CZ traveling to thailand June 24-27 2022. I have proof of my health insurance from America. Would that be sufficient or do I still need to buy additional health insurance policy to enter Thailand? I have already been approved for the Thailand pass by providing health insurance from America. Thank you!

      Hi American tourist,

      It should have covid medical coverage minimum of USD 10,000.

      Thank you

    Hi, I plan to travel to Thailand from India, stay for 15 days, go to Cambodia and come back to Thailand for a week before flying back to India. As an Indian citizen, I am eligible for a 15 day visa on arrival, and since I will be entering the country 2 times, I will be applying for the visa on arrival and Thai pass 2 times.

    The entire duration of my travel will be 28 days. Would it work if I purchased a 30 day covid insurance and use it for both the times I apply for the Thai pass or would I be required to purchase 2 policies of 15 days each before each entry to Thailand.

    • June 9, 2022

      Hi Kin,

      Yes, separate every entry.

      Thank you

    My birth date is 1 August 1940 & my wife’s is 24 June 1945.
    The AXA insurance site does not allow for these older birth dates. What do we do?

    We depart Australia on 1 July 2022 & depart Thailand for Australia on 30 July 2022.

    We will be 29 nights in Thailand.

    Please advise.

      Dear Egon,

      Yes, you still need to have a COVID insurance in order to get a Thailand Pass. You may get an insurance for 75 years old or above on this page: https://covid19.tgia.org/

    Hi Rex, as a Turkish citizen who is Special passport holder which is allowed for 90 days without visa by Thai government; if I only wanna stay there like 30 days, should I still buy 60 days insurance or 30 is enough? And is return/out ticket from country is mandatory? Big thank you.

    • October 5, 2021

      Dear Joe,

      Good day.
      If you have a return flight, you can buy an insurance valid from date of entry and date of exit from Thailand. Yes, exit flight is required to determine the validity of the insurance that you need. To buy the insurance, please visit http://www.siam-legal.com/axa-insurance

      Thank you.

    Hi Rex, can I use the COE COVID-19 insurance to apply for the Tourist Visa (60days)? Are they the same? Thanks!

    • September 13, 2021

      Dear Delson,
      Good Day!
      Yes, you can use the same insurance. You just have to make sure that the insurance will cover the validity of your visa or your stay in Thailand.
      To purchase the correct insurance please go to: http://www.siam-legal.com/axa-insurance

    Dear Rex

    I am entering on a Non immigrant B visa which is valid for 1 year.

    Can I enter with 90 days insurance and renew it when I am in Thailand? Or do I have to have a 1 year insurance in order to enter Thailand?

    Thanks

    Zach

    • April 2, 2021

      Dear Zach,
      Good day.
      If your 1 year non immigrant B visa was issued by a Thai Embassy with multi entries, you are only permitted to stay for 90 days per entry correct? You can use a 90-day COVID 19 Insurance. Please check this page to purchase the insurance:

    Hello,
    Is it really necessary to purchase this insurance *before* submitting the “Pre-approval” COE application? This seems risky. I am from a visa-exempt country, but if my application is rejected for some other reason, I will have wasted the money spent on the premiums.

    • March 18, 2021

      Dear Michael,
      Good day.
      Yes, on the part one of the COE Application, the insurance is required. If you are going to apply for the Visa Exemption, it is very likely that it will be approved as long as your have a flight exiting Thailand within 45 days, you have an ASQ and your Insurance is valid for 60 days.
      Thank you.

      Dear Leif,
      The only wait this insurance will be rejected is for the reason that your visa is under category O-retirement or category OA or OX visa.

    • March 12, 2021

      Dear Pieter,
      Yes, 60-day or 90-day COVID 19 insurance is enough for your visit to Thailand. Once you have successfully entered Thailand, if you wish to switch to ED visa, the COVID 19 insurance will not be required by the local immigration office.

    And what if have tr visa and change to ed visa, and stay for one year then it will be expensive?

    • March 12, 2021

      Dear Pieter,
      You only need the COVID 19 insurance for the duration of your TR visa. In that case, you only need 60-day insurance policy.
