Travel to Thailand

Travelers may enter Thailand with or without quarantine based on their vaccination status and country of departure.

New entry requirements are being introduced on May 1, 2022. To know how you will need to enter Thailand as a vaccinated or unvaccinated traveler, please see below.

  1. Fully Vaccinated travelers will no longer need to apply to enter Thailand under the Test & Go or Sandbox scheme. A vaccinated traveler does not need to book 1 night’s accommodation in an approved SHA+ hotel or complete an RT-PCR test on arrival. Fully vaccinated foreigners will need to provide proof of insurance and their vaccination certificate when applying for Thailand Pass. Thai Nationals only need to provide their vaccination certificate as insurance is not required.

    Unvaccinated children under 18 years old may travel with vaccinated parents without quarantine.

  2. Unvaccinated travelers will have 2 options for entering Thailand:
    • Unvaccinated travelers will be able to enter Thailand under the existing 5-day Alternate Quarantine scheme; OR
    • Unvaccinated travelers will be able to avoid the 5-day Alternate Quarantine by completing an RT-PCR test and uploading the result into their Thailand Pass application. The test cannot be older than 72 hours before their arrival date.

COVID-19 PCR Test

A pre-departure COVID-19 RT-PCR test is now only required for unvaccinated travelers who do not want to do the 5-day mandatory Alternate Quarantine on arrival. The test must be conducted within 72 hours before their international flight from their country of departure and it must be submitted to the Thailand Pass system in lieu of a vaccination certificate.

Note: Starting May 1, 2022, the RT-PCR testing will no longer be required when arriving in Thailand.

Do You Need a Visa to Enter Thailand?

Visitors from countries under the Visa Exemption List are not required to obtain a Thai visa in order to travel to Thailand for tourism purposes. The Thai Immigration Bureau will allow foreigners to stay in Thailand for 30 days. Tourists will be able to apply for a 30 days visa extension at any local immigration office in Thailand.

If you wish to stay longer or are traveling for a purpose other than tourism, please know that the normal 60-day Tourist Visa, Thai Elite Visa, and other non-immigrant visas are available at Thai Embassies or Consulates around the world. Holders of these visas are still required to apply for the Thailand Pass at the MFA website.

Do you want to stay in Thailand for 5, 10, or 20 years? You may consider the Thai Elite Visa program. It is an easy-to-apply and hassle-free visa application for your long-term stay in Thailand. For more information about the Thai Elite Membership and Visa application, you may check this page: https://www.thaiembassy.com/thailand-visa/thai-elite-visa

Applying for Thailand Pass

Everyone planning to come to Thailand needs to have a valid Thailand Pass to enter the country. It is mandatory during the COVID pandemic.

https://www.thaiembassy.com/travel-to-thailand/thailand-pass

Thailand Pass is a web-based system designed to support Thailand’s “Ease of Travel” system and make the documentation process of the travelers entering Thailand simpler and more efficient.

You may visit the MFA website https://tp.consular.go.th/ and apply for the Thailand Pass directly.

Applying for a Thailand Pass is even easier with the new changes being implemented on May 1. With fewer documents needing to be checked and confirmed, approval times will be much faster.

The documents you need to provide when applying for a Thailand Pass will depend on your vaccination status:

Vaccinated travelers:

  • Your passport profile page
  • A certificate of full (2 doses) vaccination
  • A medical insurance policy with at least USD$ 10,000 minimum coverage

Unvaccinated travelers NOT doing Alternate Quarantine:

  • Your passport profile page
  • An RT-PCR test result no more than 72 hours before your arrival date
  • A medical insurance policy with at least USD$ 10,000 minimum coverage

Unvaccinated travelers doing Alternate Quarantine:

  • Your passport profile page
  • Confirmed booking of SHA+ hotel 5-day Alternate Quarantine package
  • A pre-booked RT-PCR test on arrival (if not included in your package)
  • A medical insurance policy with at least USD$ 10,000 minimum coverage

It is advised to submit/register your Thailand Pass application at least 3 to 7 days before your scheduled departure. You cannot enter Thailand until you have received your Thailand Pass, so make sure you start the application process well in advance.

The application for the Thailand Pass is free. However, you may also retain a service provider who would assist you with your Thailand Pass application.

Thailand COVID Insurance for Foreigners

All foreigners traveling to Thailand must provide a travel insurance policy before departing to Thailand. The COVID travel insurance certificate must be submitted to the Thai embassy when applying for the visa and Thailand Pass and needs to state explicitly that the health insurance is for 10,000 USD or more and COVID-19 is covered. The insurance policy must cover the duration of your stay in Thailand. If your insurance does not meet these requirements, you will not be allowed to travel to Thailand.

Foreigners can get a Thailand travel insurance policy covering COVID-19 easily and conveniently. Visitors can buy the travel insurance online with a credit card and the insurance policy and COVID-19 certificate will be sent to you instantly.

Thailand Health Screening

With the spread of COVID-19, many countries, like Thailand, have been implementing new screening methods and health controls for travel at airports.

When arriving in Thailand, it is good practice to print a copy of all the documents you uploaded to your Thailand Pass Application. This will help Immigration Officers approve your entry through passport control faster and potentially avoid those embarrassing moments when electronic devices run out of battery or Apps crash.

The documents you should print are:

  • Thailand Pass QR code
  • Certificate of Insurance
  • Hotel booking confirmation (unvaccinated Alternate Quarantine)
  • RT-PCR test result (unvaccinated No Quarantine)
  • Vaccination certificate
  • COVID-19 recovery certificate (if previously tested positive)
  • TM6 – This is the blue card they give you on the plane.

When Will Flights to Thailand Resume?

Regarding flights to Thailand, the normal commercial passenger flights are operating as normal. Before booking flights to Thailand, travelers should ensure that they study the different categories of visas granted to foreign nationals at this time to determine the possibility of travel.
Check within your country’s state department for travel advisories during COVID-19.

How to choose your quarantine hotel if unvaccinated?

You have to consider first what your needs are before booking a hotel room to make your quarantine stay as comfortable as possible.

Do some research before booking any quarantine hotel room for your travel plan. Consider your budget, room size, and hotel policies. Quarantine rules often change and are sometimes on short notice, so it is important to understand the hotel cancellation and refund policies before you confirm your booking.

Check the hotel reviews to get feedback from the customer experiences. Ask the right questions. This will help make your decision. Find a focal point between comfort, amenities, and price.

List of Quarantine Hotels in Bangkok

The SHA+ Alternate Quarantine packages include not only accommodation but also full board meals, transportation to the hotel, standby nurses and COVID-19 tests that are conducted by the partner hospital during the quarantine. Here are some of the highly recommended ASQ hotels in Bangkok offering ASQ and Test and Go packages:

Foreign travelers who do not wish to stay in designated Alternative Quarantine or AQ may opt to spend their mandatory quarantine in Golf Quarantine, Yacht Quarantine, and Villa Quarantine accredited by the Thai government, to boost the tourism sector.

Travel Advisory for Thailand

Tourism is vital to the economy of Thailand. The Thai government has reopened the Kingdom of Thailand to foreign visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic with certain restrictions.

It is important to review news about fast-changing developments within the country before you make travel plans. Information is available on this website and on government sites listed below.

Please research your destination of travel so you have a pleasant experience for your stay in Thailand.

List of Countries that may allow Travel to Thailand (Check with your Embassy for Travel Advisory):

  • United States citizens should check with the US Department of State for any travel advisory, news, and emergency situations on their website for Thailand Travel Advisory.
  • United Kingdom citizens can check for travel restrictions and news on the FDCO website for Foreign Travel Advice Thailand.
  • Australian citizens still must obtain government approval to travel to Thailand. News, emergency assistance, or other important information can be found on their government site COVID-19 and travel Thailand and the Australian Embassy Thailand website for Australians in Thailand.

Conclusion

Travel requirements and restrictions for foreigners entering Thailand might slightly vary depending on the country and traveler.

We recommend contacting your local Thai embassy or consulate before making any plans or reservations. You may also leave your questions in the comment section.

Top 20 Questions Asked this Week by our Visitors

If I applied for my Thailand Pass before May 1 but arrived after the new regulations are in place, do I need to apply for a new Thailand Pass?

No. If you already hold an approved Thailand Pass, your pass will still be valid under the new entry requirements.

My flight dates have changed. Do I need to apply for a new Thailand Pass?

Recent changes to Thailand Pass now allow your arrival date to change by up to 7 days before or after your original arrival date.

If your arrival date is outside 7 days, you will need to apply for a new Thailand Pass.

Can you do the Test and Go option if flying directly to Phuket?

From May 1 2022, Test & Go and Sandbox are no longer required for vaccinated travelers visiting Phuket. You may enter under the new No Quarantine program starting May 1.

Recommend Alternate Quarantine program hotels in Phuket?

For the unvaccinated travelers, entering the the Alternative Quarantine program, you can find a list of Phuket SHA+/AQ hotels at Agoda.com.

Can I transit to Phuket if I land in Bangkok?

Now that Test & Go, Sandbox, and RT-PCR testing requirements have been removed, travelers under the new No Quarantine program can fly domestically as soon as they land in Thailand.

How do I buy an ATK test for Day-5 testing?

Normally your Day 1 SHA+ hotel will provide you with the ATK test, but you can also purchase an ATK self-test from pharmacies and 7-11’s in Thailand. They cost between 100-150 Thai baht. For the vaccinated travelers who enter Thailand on May 1 onward, ATK testing is optional.

How do I report my Day-5 ATK test?

For travelers who enter Thailand before May 1, 2022, you will take a photo of your test result side-by-side with your passport. You upload your ATK result through the MorChana App. On arrival in Thailand, you need to download and install MorChana:

Does anyone have any theories on when all these requirements will be removed?

There are many changes proposed over the months of May & July, but things change weekly. The current proposal is to remove all restrictions in July. This is not official. Check closer to this time for official correspondence.

Pre-departure PRC won’t be needed anymore from 1st April? Is it official?

Pre-departure RT-PCR tests are no longer needed after April 1 in Thailand. It is prudent to check with your airline or any transit countries to confirm their pre-departure test requirements.

From May 1, pre-departure RT-PCR testing is only required for unvaccinated travelers who do not want to do the 5-day Alternate Quarantine.

Thailand Pass email of approval is still telling me to get pre-departure RT-PCR. Do I have to do this?

Information in the Thailand Pass system will update on May 1. When you receive your approval, you will still see the system advising you to get a pre-departure RT-PCR test. This test does not affect your Thailand Pass application.

Do we still need RT-PCR on arrival after May 1?

No. The change on May 1 is to remove pre-departure RT-PCR tests. You still need to do a test when you arrive in Thailand before May 1.

Does anyone have information on requirements for children under 5 needing to be vaxxed for traveling?

Children aged below 18:

  • Vaccination is not required but must travel with parents/legal guardian only
  • Not required to present a COVID-19 RT-PCR test result upon arrival
  • Must apply for Thailand Pass together with the parent or guardian

What is the best way to find SHA+ hotels?

You can find listings for SHA+/AQ hotels in all areas at Agoda.

I am quarantining in Bangkok through Test & Go. How do I book my transport and RT-PCR?

Starting May 1, Test & Go is no longer required for vaccinated travelers. You do not need to book private SHA+ approved transport from the airport or an RT-PCR test.

Does my SHA+ package include test & transfer?

If you are unvaccinated, your hotel package should include transport and RT-PCR testing. Check with your hotel before booking.

If your final destination is Phuket or Samui, you will receive your test at the airport and need to book the test yourself at www.thailandpsas.com. Your hotel package needs to only include transport. After you have booked your RT PCR test, it is recommended to send a copy of your receipt to your hotel.

Can I rent a private car/taxi from the airport to the hotel?

Yes. Vaccinated travelers no longer need to quarantine so you can book private transport from the airport to you hotel

Does the hotel provide an ATK test?

Some do. If they do not, you can buy an ATK test from a pharmacy or 7-11 once outside quarantine.

What happens if I test positive on day 1 after a previous covid infection with a recovery certificate?

If your Day 1 test result is positive, the test center or hospital will make all arrangements to admit you to a hospital or suitable hotel (this will be decided on a case-by-case basis). Your expenses need to be covered by your insurance.

Positive Covid cases are assessed on a case-by-case basis. If you test positive on a Day 5 ATK test, you will report to the closest hospital or testing center. Depending on the severity of symptoms, you will be admitted to the hospital or be required to self-isolate in your hotel/accommodation for up to 14 days.

What insurance should I get?

Your insurance needs to offer coverage for a minimum of $10,000 USD and cover medical expenses relating to Covid-19. You can find trusted insurance coverage at AXA Thailand.

What happens after I get my AXA Insurance policy?

After applying for your AXA Insurance, you will receive an email with your policy. You can then upload the Certificate of Insurance into your Thai Pass application.

    I am travelling from Australia (vaccinated) to Bangkok to spend time and then to Koh Samui. Can I spend 4 days in Bangkok before heading to Koh Samui? Or do I need to travel directly to Koh Samui when arriving in Thailand due to the ‘Samui Plus Sandbox’ ?

      Hi Loz,

      Yes, you can travel anywhere. Sandbox programme has been terminated.

    Hi, we are traveling to Thailand on the 18th July. We are we a family of 5. Both parents and our 18 year son are vaccinated. My 16 year old has had one vaccination and my 12 year old none.

    If I will only be in transit, since my KLM flight to Finland has a layover at Bangkok, do I need a pass if I do not intend to go out of the airport?

      Hi Khristine,

      If you will not recheck in your luggage at immigration for your next flight, no need for Thailand Pass.

    Good Morning

    I am Priyantha Nawana, President’s Counsel, holding the position of Senior Additional Solicitor-General at the Attorney-General’s Department of Sri Lanka. I am also holding an Official Passport. According to the website information of Thai Embassy in Sri Lanka, a visa would be granted on arrival for Official Passport holders
    . I hope that position is correct and proceed to travel to Thailand to receive the visa on arrival?

    I have read that Thailand does not set an expiry date for vaccination and travelers are allowed to enter Thailand as long as the last dose is administered at least 14 days before . Can I confirm this regulation?

    I am from Singapore (vaccination status in singapore expires after 270 days) and have taken my second dose Pfizer on 18 july 2021, which will be more than a year ago. Can i confirm that i will be able to enter thailand?

      Hi,
      I am traveling to the UK with transit in Bangkok airport in July, from Myanmar. I have one 2 year old child and one 10 year old child, both unvaccinated. I assume that the 10 year old needs a COVID test. Does it have to be PCR-RT, or is any other type accepted?
      For the 2 year old, is a test required?
      One more question: my wife and I have the Sinopharm vaccine. I want to double check, is proof of our vaccination enough, or do we also need to take a test before traveling?

    1) i do not have to do pre-departure pcr to go bangkok , upon arrival have to under go pcr on day 1 and atk on day 5.
    2) for test and go approved hotel, there will be people fetching us from the airport right?
    3) i can stay just one night under the test and go, then for the rest of my trip i can just switch hotel right?

    • March 26, 2022

      Dear Daphne,

      1. Yes, you are correct. You do not need a RT PCR test before flying to Thailand but you still need RT PCR test when you arrive in Thailand and ATK test (you do on your own) on Day 5.
      2. Yes, the Test and Go Hotel will arrange the airport transfer. You can book using http://www.siam-legal.com/agoda
      3. Yes, after you receive the negative test result, you can leave the hotel and stay in another hotel or a condo or AirBnB.

    Hey! Quick question. If I get the Thailand pass, can I travel freely through Thailand? I know I have to stay in a special hotel on the first and fifth day. But can I stay in Bangkok for the first day and then travel to Koh Samui and stay in a special hotel in Koh Samui for the fifth day? Or do I need to start the whole process over if I go from Bangkok to Koh Samui?

    • March 15, 2022

      Dear Max,

      Once you have a Thailand Pass, you can enter Thailand on the date specified in your Thailand Pass. When you arrive in Thailand and undergo the 1 night Test and Go, you will be allowed to travel or freedom of movement after you receive the negative result on your RT PCR test on Day 1. You do not need RT PCR test on Day 5. You will do a self-test on Day 5. You can stay in Bangkok for 1 night and after that you can go to Samui. In Samui you can stay in any hotel.
