(Updated on January 9, 2023 at 4PM)
UPDATED THAILAND TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has announced that Thailand continues to welcome all international tourists under the fully-reopen-to-tourism policy that was introduced on 1 October 2022.
Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health, said “International travelers arriving in Thailand are not required to show proof of vaccination.”
In addition, foreign tourists are not required to show ATK or RT-PCR test results.
However, while Thailand is welcoming all visitors, a visitor’s country of origin or next country of destination may require incoming visitors including their own nationals returning home to have a negative PCR result.
Thus, Thailand is aiming to correspond with the rules of these countries and does require COVID insurance for visitors from these countries or visitors to Thailand continuing on to these countries, in the case they test positive while in Thailand. Among such countries are China and India.
After months of strict travel restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Thailand is gearing up for a return to normalcy by easing some travel restrictions and quarantine requirements to allow tourists to enter the country.
Travelers around the world are now keen to find out when and how they can travel to Thailand in 2022. What important things do travelers need to know about Thailand Travel Restrictions if they are planning to fly to the Land of Smiles? Here is some helpful information for you.

Please have the following documents ready.
- Visa (if required)

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 July 1, 2022. To know how you will need to enter Thailand as a vaccinated or unvaccinated traveler, please see below.
Vaccinated Travelers – Vaccinated travelers will need to have a copy of their vaccination certificate on hand before boarding a flight and on arrival. Children under 18 who are traveling with vaccinated parents do not need to complete any RT-PCR or Pro-ATK test before departing.
Unvaccinated Travelers – Before coming to Thailand, unvaccinated travelers need to complete an RT-PCR or Professional Antigen (Pro-ATK) test through a clinic or medical professional. The test result must be issued within 72 hours before departing for Thailand.
An ATK (RAT) home test is not acceptable. Children under 18 traveling with unvaccinated parents also need to complete a test.
With the removal of the Thailand Pass, airlines, and Immigration Officers will conduct random checks of passengers to confirm Covid requirements are met. It is best to have your Vaccination or Covid Test certificate available to show upon inspection.
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.
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
Starting July 1, 2022, Thailand Pass is no longer required for foreign travelers entering Thailand.
Vaccinated travelers do not need to provide proof of vaccination before arriving. Unvaccinated travelers (including children traveling with unvaccinated parents) will need to complete an RT-PCR or Professional Antigen Test (Pro-ATK) test 72 hours before departing for Thailand.
Thailand COVID Insurance for Foreigners
It is recommended for foreigners traveling to Thailand to have a travel insurance policy before departing to Thailand. This is for their protection during the course of their trip to Thailand.
Having a reliable travel insurance policy that covers disruptions beyond Covid protects the investment you’ve made so you can feel secure and covered while enjoying what Thailand has to offer.
Purchasing a protection is affordable than paying the hospital bill out from your pocket. The average travel insurance cost for a trip to Thailand is only around $100 to $150.
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.

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.

Do international transit passengers (transit in Bangkok) need PCR test? Thank you.
Yes, RT PCR test result and COVID insurance.
My final destination is India and Thailand is a stopover. What are the requirements at the airport? Stopover is 4hrs.
You need an RT PCR test result and COVID insurance. For the insurance, please check http://www.siam-legal.com/axa-insurance
Have any rules regarding the unvaccinated changed or do they need to be quarantined for 10 days still?
And what about if that person has a travel exemption (natural immunity from recovering from covid within a month from traveling)?
If you do not have proof of vaccination, your Thailand Pass will be under QUARANTINE PROGRAM. Under the Quarantine Program, you must quarantine for 10 nights. If you had COVID before, you still need to have at least 1 dose.
Regarding this rule: “Travelers with a medical certificate of recovery from COVID-19 who have received 1 dose of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before travel and in the past 3 months of recovery” .. Does this apply to children? My daughter is 9 and recovered from Covid but is not vaccinated, (as children are not required to be vaccinated in Australia). Also will a letter from an Australian doctor suffice for this certificate?
Children are not required to have Vaccination if they are traveling with a parent. Therefore this requirement does not apply to them.
I’m going to Bangkok for 8 days in April, but am keen to spend 2-3 days in Pattaya or an island. Is this allowed under Test&Go or the sandbox program?
Yes, you can do a Test and Go in Pattaya. You will arrive in Bangkok and airport transfer to your hotel in Pattaya.
To book a Test and Go hotel in Pattaya, please check this link:
Must children, under 12years old, also be fully vaccinated to travel to Thailand.
No. Children who are traveling with a vaccinated parent are not required to have vaccination.
Our family got vaccinated more than 12 months ago. Does that mean we cannot enter Thailand with our vaccination certificates?
If your second dose is more than 12 months ago, you need a booster shot in order for you to come to Thailand under Thailand Pass Test and Go program.
HI. I bought AXA-insurance for travel to Thailand, I have Finland passport.My friend have Russia passport,he live with me in Cambodia and want come with me to Thailand. Why he cant buy AXA-insurance too? There is no Russia at all in countries you must select .
If he is in Cambodia, you can choose Cambodia as country of departure and not Russian Federation. Another option, you can go to this website: https://covid19.tgia.org/
second time i post and it get deleted
can i take taxi to my hotel when i land in bangkok ? or. ?
once at hotel how long does it take to receive Pcr results ?
You’re not allowed to use public transportation, please coordinate to your hotel for the private car pick up from the Airport. You will receive your test results as early as 24 hours after sample collection.
Can my boyfriend from Thailand come n stay with me at puket while on sandbox program? Does he need to be vaccinated or can he get the test done?
Yes, your Thai boyfriend can join you in your room during Sandbox Program if she is vaccinated or have COVID Test to be able to enter Phuket except Day 1. But to make it sure please do contact your hotel.
For Covid-19 RT-PCR Test (pre-departure 72 hrs before onboard flight to Thailand), Is the Negative results of Saliva test method approve by Thailand Health Authority ??
Saliva RT PCR test is acceptable for children. Nasal RT PCR test for adults.
Please forgive my ignorance, when you get your first negative PCR test result the next day are you no longer confined to your room/hotel can we go out to eat and shop on Koh Samui?
Yes, that is correct. You will only be confined in the room on the first night while you wait for the result of your COVID test that was taken on arrival. On the test on the 5th day, I recommend for you to check with your hotel about the arrangement for that.
Can I transit through Bangkok if I am coming from Ethiopia? Want to know if I can fly ADD – BKK – SYD on the 2nd or 5th of February. Thanks!
Yes, you can. However, there are some requirements you need to comply with such as a Medical Certificate with a laboratory result indicating that COVID-19 is not detected and Travel Health Insurance.
Hi, Can I transit to Thailand from Jeddah to Bangkok and Bangkok to Manila? Thank
Yes, you can. To enter Thailand for transiting there are some requirements you need to comply such as Insurance and Covid test (RT-PCR TEST). I will share a link to you and I hope it might help you in knowing the guidelines to transit in Bangkok.
hi, can i do a day trip to bangkok from singapore, morning flight in, night fligh out. if can, what is the requirement for arrival & departure ? thanks.
At the moment it is not possible. The main requirement for arrival is a Thailand Pass. To get a Thailand Pass, you must meet one of the 3 entry programs such as Test and Go, Sandbox or Quarantine Program.
Hi, I’m planning to travel from the UK to Phuket. Do I need to have been in the UK for 21 consecutive days before my arrival?
Since Phuket Sandbox is open to all countries, it is not required for you to have stayed in the UK for 21 days. To learn more about the Phuket Sandbox, please check this page:
We are traveling from the US to Phucket with a layover of 9 hours at Singapore. Would we need to quarantine in Singapore to go to Phucket or would we be doing the quarantine in Phucket? We would be going through the Phucket Sandbox
Yes, you are allowed to transit in Singapore airport and you will arrive in Phuket for the Sandbox. You will not quarantine in Singapore nor in Phuket. You can stay in Phuket without quarantine for 7 nights and after that, you will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand.
I can book one way to Phuket and return flight from Bangkok for the sand box ,or do I have to have return booked thru Phuket airport
If your stay in Phuket is less than 7 nights, your exit flight must be from Phuket. You can exit Thailand via Bangkok only if you have completed your 7 nights in Phuket.
Some addition provinces have been added to the sandbox scheme, like Koh Samui and Krabi, but to the best of my knowledge there are no direct international flights to either and you would therefore need to transit through Bangkok. But I notice you have said this is currently not possible and anyone landing at Bangkok would have to quarantine, but presumably they will need to change this when the others open up ?
For Krabi Sandbox, you can enter Phuket (no stop in Bangkok) and from Phuket airport, you will have an airport transfer from the airport to your Sandbox hotel in Krabi.
For Samui Sandbox, you can transit in Bangkok but your flight must be one the sealed flights PG5121, PG5125 or PG5171. This flight must be on the same ticket as the international flight. Once you arrive in Samui, you can do your sandbox stay in an SHA+ Hotel in Samui.
Hope this email finds you well.
We have an approved QR test and go code from November. We have a hotel in Bangkok booked for 1 night and a confirmed PCR test. We also have a flight booked to Koh Samui, which I checked is still confirmed. I’m due to leave on the UK on the 15th and land in Bangkok on the 16th Jan. With the latest conference today the 15th Jan is floating in the media. Not sure what to believe. I can’t see any cut off on any official websites. Do you have clarity on your side?
Your Test and Go Thailand Pass QR Code is still valid. Nothing has changed.
What happens in the case that there are travellers who have recently recovered from Covid-19 and continue to test positive even though they are no longer infectious.
I have a valid ‘Proof of Recovery’ certificate.
You can use proof of recovery to be able to get Thailand Pass. The remaining issue will be the airline. They may require that you tested negative in the RT PCR test. Or perhaps the airlines will have a different take on this matter. I recommend for you to check what your airline will require from you to be able to board the flight.
me and my family are traveling to Phuket (with Phuket Sandbox) from Austria in February. The thing is that we will have to transit in Bangkok to Phuket. Is it true that we can’t transit, and we have to go to a quarantine hotel in Bangkok for several days before we can travel to Phuket? We are fully vaccinated.
Yes, that is correct. For the Phuket Sandbox, you are not allowed to stop in Bangkok. if you stop in Bangkok, you need to quarantine in Bangkok before you can fly to Phuket.
tested for Covid-19 by RT-PCR method within 72 hours has to be before the departure to Thailand or before arriving in Thailand?
It is 72 hours before your flight. For example, you are flying from London-Doha-Phuket. The test must be taken within 72 hours before the London to Doha flight.
I have an international flight booked from UK to Bangkok, transiting in Doha. Then, I booked a separate ticket to Koh Samui (on the day I land in Bangkok). Am I able to catch this last flight to Koh Samui and quarantine there for 7 days under Samui Sandbox now that rules have changed, or would I have to quarantine in Bangkok?
You can do a Samui Sandbox. Good day. You can do a domestic transfer in Bangkok as long as the domestic flight is one of the flights of Bangkok Airways: PG5125, PG5151 or PG5171 which is booked together in the same ticket with your international flight.
I am traveling from Israel to Bangkok with a 4 years old child.
I’m fully vaccinated.

You can apply for Thailand Pass and include your son in your application. Your child will be under the entry program that you registered. Whether it is Phuket Sandbox or the Bangkok Quarantine.
Hello, I am transiting in BKK with a layover of 26 hours (Mumbai to Bangkok, Bangkok to Tokyo) on 2 separate tickets in mid January. This means I will need to exit the terminal, grab my baggage, and go back through security. In this case, how do the rules apply?
As of today, if you need to clear customs, you need Thailand Pass. For Bangkok, you can apply for Thailand Pass only if you will quarantine for 10 days.
In that case, please change your plan and do not travel or do not transit in Thailand.

Hello, I am from Ghana (West Africa) and received my Thai Pass 6 days ago to enter Phuket Sandbox. I am fully vaccinated. After the discovery of the new variant in Southern Africa I now have to quarantine for 14 days in a AQ hotel. Does that mean I have to cancel my existing SHA Plus+ hotel booking, loose all the money and rebook? My arrival date in Phuket is 9 December 2021.
You may contact the SHA+ hotel and ask them if they are also a quarantine hotel and if you can use whatever amount you paid them for the 14 nights quarantine.
I am from UK and fully vaccinated. If we enter Bangkok and complete SHA+ quarantine one night can we then fly to Phuket 2 days later on an internal Thai Smile flight? Or is internal flights not allowed for foreign travellers?
After your Test and Go in Bangkok you are allowed to travel anywhere in Thailand.
We are fully vaccinated including the booster. What type of vaccination certification is required? Our state does not issue a digital certification, we have a CDC Vaccine card.
You can use your CDC card as a proof of vaccination.
I am coming to Chiang Mai in June. If I have a connection in Bangkok, do I need to quarantine in Bangkok if I don’t leave the airport? (I just need the one-day based on my vaccination status.)
As of present regulations, you are required to do Test and Go in your first arrival city, Bangkok before you can travel to Chiang Mai.
im vaccinated and booked to travel to Bangkok on february. After staying 5 days in Bangkok can i travel to Pattaya or Phuket? I live in Germany, thanks
You are exempted from quarantine but must spend one night at an AQ/SHA+ hotel in Bangkok to wait for your Covid test results before you can travel to Pattaya or Phuket. Otherwise we recommend getting a flight that lands directly in Phuket without having to transit in Bangkok.
Hi, We are traveling from the US. We want our final stop to be Phuket, but we have a 6 hour layover at BKK. Are we allowed to stay in the airport until our flight to Phuket in the morning? or do we need to stay at a SHA in Bangkok?

My fiance and I are planning to go traveling to Phuket from 12/4 to 12/13. My fiance is from the US and I am from South Korea. We will arrive Bangkok with a separate flight at a different time. We are both fully vaccinated. Bangkok is the city we enter but it isn’t our final destination. We will just take a transfer to Phuket via Bangkok. Now I was wondering we should be quarantined for a day in Bangkok or we could go to Phuket and be quarantied in Phuket at our hotel.
Please advice. Thank you.
No, you must quarantine in Bangkok before you can travel to Phuket.
Thank you for your kind answer, Paul.
One more question!
As my fiance and I are flying in to BKK on different flights, I wanted to make sure that we can stay in the same room while we are waiting for the test result in Bangkok?
He will arrive in the early morning but my flight is arriving in the afternoon. Please let us know the way we can stay in the same hotel in Bangkok until we are free to move.
Please contact your SHA+ hotel and inform them of your situation, they will better assist you. Also, if you are doing Test and Go you are free to move around Bangkok whilst you stay at the hotel.
Hi I’m from South Africa we want to travel to phukhet in December we are fully vaccinated do we still have to quarantine
As South Africa is not on the list of low-risk countries, you are allowed to participate in the Sandbox Program for which you would stay for 7 days and can only travel around a specific area.

Yes, people are still required to wear face masks/coverings in all public areas.
I’m from Australia and we are thinking of first traveling to singapore and then phuket 3 days later in early 2022. My question is around the “Exemption from quarantine”requirements, particularly the part around needing to be “Residing in the country of departure for at least 21 days”.
Is this 21 days in any of the 63 countries exempt from quarantine? i.e. if I travel from Australia (my country of residence) to singapore, and then from singapore to phuket 3 days later, will I still be exempt from Quarantine requirements?
Yes you will be exempted from quarantine but must spend one night at an AQ/SHA+ hotel to await your Covid-19 test results you take upon arrival.
Hello! I currently reside in Singapore and plan to fly to South Korea for 7 days in early December through the Singapore-South Korea travel lane. I hope to then fly straight from South Korea to Phuket after my 7 days in Korea. Will I still be eligible for the quarantine-free travel when I land in Phuket? As I technically won’t be in Korea for 21 straight days but as both Singapore and Korea are included in the list of eligible countries, I hope this situation will be accepted.
Thanks so much!
Yes, you will be allowed to enter Thailand and be exempted from quarantine considering you have spent at least 21 consecutive days in low-risk country(s).
Hello, can fully vaccinated person from an eligible country visit another eligible country prior arriving to bankok (total 21 consecutive days in 2 eligible countries)?
Yes that is possible considering you have spent at least 21 consecutive days in low-risk country(s).
Please can you stop deleting my post!
I was looking for advice if possible.
We have sales meetings in Germany in December from 7-14th and then fly to Thailand on December 20th.
Are we still allowed into Thailand if we’ve travelled to Germany a week before?
Alternatively, if we stayed in Germany for 21 days and travelled to Thailand from there, would that be okay?
please come back to me asap so we can make arrangements.
First of all, we are currently getting a high influx of replies and are still going through each comment one by one.
For your case you have to spend at least 21 consecutive days in low-risk country(s) prior to traveling to Thailand to be exempted from quarantine. Both Germany and the UK are low-risk countries. If you travel from those countries regardless of citizenship, you only need to spend one night at an AQ/SHA+ hotel in your first port of entry in Thailand, in order to wait for your RT-PCR test results upon arrival.
1. Is Thailand accepting mixed dose if vaccines ? I got 1st dose Pfizer and secondly dose of Moderns vaccine here in Canada.
2. I want to travel from Canada to Bangkok in January. My flight has a connection in Dubai for 3 hours only. How will i achieve the 21 days consecutive days stay in Dubai since i am only changing flights there ?
You are exempted from quarantine but must do Test&Go. The UAE is on the list of low-risk countries and you will be exempted from quarantine when you have stayed for at least 21 consecutive days in low-risk country(s).
Hi, can you please advise how do I book a SHA+ Hotel booking for Bangkok for the 1 night I need (don’t need to quarantine), Many thanks
You can book directly with an AQ/SHA+ certified hotel or through third-party travel websites but you must contact the hotel for a booking confirmation prior to departure.
I am here to ask that why Pakistan is not on low risk countries list of 63? As far as COVID-19 is concerned Pakistan is one the safest country.
I request the Thai government to included Pakistan in the low risk countries and allow us to visit Thailand under the no quarantine scheme.
Please continue to check the Thailand Pass website for any updates regarding eligible countries.
We are Indians currently residents of Botswana. we are fully vaccinated (AstraZeneca) . we are planning to visit Bangkok this December. Which entry program do we come under? are we allowed to move around sandbox places within the first 7 days?
Yes you will be under the Sandbox Program. You will also be allowed to move around freely in your Sandbox area of choice, however you must be fully vaccinated 14 days prior to departure date. If you are unvaccinated, you will need to do a full quarantine of 10 nights, which means you are not permitted to leave your hotel room.
Hi – We are planning to travel to Thailand and would like to understand what is the guideline for transit? If there’s no direct flight from UK to Thailand and we have to transit in Singapore, what would be the guidelines? Thank you!
If you are fully vaccinated you will be quarantine exempted or you can participate in the Sandbox Program. If not, you will need to quarantine for 10 nights at your first port of entry in Thailand.
How do I know if I am qualified as “fully vaccinated” by Thailand standerds?
You are considered fully vaccinated when you have receive the full intended dosage of vaccine(s) on the list of Covid-19 vaccines approved by the Thai government.
I am a Malaysian, fully vaccinated. There are some clarifications:
1) Do I need to have a medical insurance if I purchase a travel insurance?
2) Pls confirm that 10 days quarantine is not required?
3) Do I need to apply COE? I read your website, some parts mentioned required and some mentioned not required. Ps confirm
1) You need an insurance policy that provides Covid-19 cover in Thailand.
2) The 10 day full quarantine is not required only if you fully vaccinated with a Covid-19 vaccine approved by Thailand.

We are due to travel to Khao Lak on November 13 and are fully vaccinated. Will we need to stay in Phuket for 7 days before moving on to Khao Lak?
Khao Lak is in Phang Nga and there is what we call Phang-Nga Sandbox. You do not need to stay in Phuket. You can travel from Phuket Airport and go to your SHA+ Hotel in Phang Nga. When you apply for the COE, you still have to choose Phuket Sandbox and you still have to do your 2 COVID tests, perhaps in Phuket also, unless it is arranged by your SHA+ Hotel in Phang Nga.
I just want to confirm. If you fly into Phuket stay for 7 nights (Sandbox program) and then move on to Bangkok this will be ok? Then no quarantine in Bangkok required?
Yes, that is correct. For the entry using Phuket Sandbox, you only need to stay in Phuket for 7 nights in an SHA+ hotel. After which, you may travel to Bangkok as long as you had your last COVID test with negative result and you had your release form from the hotel. You do not need to quarantine when you arrive in Bangkok from Phuket Sandbox.
Is this Bangkok open now 3.11 when I have planned to come? Can I handle coe etc now?
The planned Bangkok Sandbox may happen in November 2021. There is no official start date and no official requirements. Since there are no official guidelines, you cannot do the COE yet. If you do COE now, your COE will be issued for Bangkok Quarantine.
I left the same question several times and it always gets deleted. It concerns about travel to Hua Hin in November or January, and the requirements. Please answer
Fully vaccinated, do I need to stay in BKK 7 days or can go straight away to my condo.
Bangkok or Hua Hin Sandbox has no official guideline. If we base it to Phuket and Samui Sandbox, it means you need to stay for 7 nights in an SHA+ Hotel before you can move to your own condo.
I have a visit planned mid January 2022 from EU to Bangkok.
I am fully vaccinated and will undergo the process for entry (coe, insurance, covid test, etc).
Some news reports that Thailand will release quarantine requirement in Bangkok from Nov. 1 to vaccinated visitors. What is the prognosis?
Yes, there is a plan to introduce Bangkok Sandbox in November for the fully vaccinated travelers. If this plan will be patterned to the Phuket Sandbox, it would mean that you need to stay in SHA+ Hotel in Bangkok for 7 nights, free to go around Bangkok during that period. You will be allowed to travel to another province after that. This is not the official guideline just yet but it is likely that it will be like that. We have to wait and see.
I am fully vaccinated and am planning to travel to Thailand in December 2021. I am planning to go to Phuket (for 7 days) before leaving for Koh Samui for another seven days and then returning to the U.K. – is this possible under the island hopping scheme?
I am arriving to Phuket from the U.K. via Qatar (which I understand is fine). For the return Journey, I wish to transit to the U.K from Bangkok (Koh Samui > Bangkok > U.K). Is this possible?
Yes. You can enter Thailand under the Phuket Sandbox + 7 Extension. Please check this page for more information:
Do I need to be vaccinated to enter and quarantine in BKK?
Since arrival in Bangkok requires quarantine for 14 days, no, it is not necessary to be fully vaccinated.
I am a fully vaccinated US citizen and have completed the Phuket Sandbox on 7 August.
I elected to stay in Phuket until my Thai girlfriend receive her second Sinopharm vaccine on 28 August. My question is this:
Can I fly from Phuket to Bkk, where she will be waiting to pick me up on 4 September. We then we want to start driving to Krabi, Koh Lanta, where there are “0” Covid cases, as of last Friday. Is this possible? If so, what are the requirements? Covid test? Etc?
Thank you, Albert
Yes, you can travel to Bangkok to meet here as long as there are flights from Phuket to Bangkok. As for travelling to Krabi from Bangkok, at the moment we do not have information about the provincial restrictions of Krabi for travelers from Bangkok which is a red zone. I recommend for you or your Thai partner to check with the Provincial Government of Krabi.
Greetings. What would be the schedule for the 3 RT-PCR tests upon arrival? I cannot seem to find that. Thank you.
The schedule for RT PCR tests in Phuket would be date of arrival, day 6-7 and day 12-13.
Hi good day! Are local expats who are working here in Thailand that are fully vaccinated allowed to enter to Phuket in the month of October? What kind of test do you require?
There has been announcements for flights from Bangkok to Phuket for September so it likely that Phuket will allow Bangkok residents to travel to Phuket. However, based on what is happening in Phuket with more than 100 cases per day, it might be possible that only travelers with special permit will be allowed to enter Phuket. I recommend for you to check the news or check with the Provincial Government of Phuket for their announcements.
Hi! I would like yo travel from bangkok to phuket. What are the restrictions? I am not vaccinated but i am a thai citizen. Is it possible to enter the city with one dose or be tested negative to enter?
Since you are Thai, you may directly call the provincial health office of Phuket about the current restrictions. I believe that unvaccinated people cannot go to Phuket at this time.
Currently in Bangkok and will go to Chiang Mai by train. Do I need to do do quarantine ?
Yes, you may be require to quarantine or self-isolate. Please check with the Provincial Government of Chiang Mai about their current entry restrictions.
I have a trip planned November 11-19 from US to Bangkok 3 nights then fly to Chang Mai for 2 nights then fly to Phuket for 3 nights before departing back to US. Will the quarantine be lifted by then for Bangkok so I can fulfill my itinerary. I am fully vaccinated and will undergo the process for entry (coe, insurance, covid test, etc). Will be flying through Singapore Airlines.
Based on the current situation it is not possible to travel to Bangkok without quarantine. The Prime Minister announced today that it might be after 4 months that it may be possible.
If you are fully vaccinated and you only 8 nights to spend in Thailand, just go to Phuket and spend the whole time in Phuket. Please check the information about Phuket Sandbox below:
HI, Coming from Europe, Germany, fully vaccinated, to do I need to quarantine going to Bangkok?

Hi, i’ve been reading through some questions left my others, and the responses left by you but am still slightly confused as to the quarantine rules.
If i’m double vaccinated, with a negative test, flying from UK to Bangkok (with the intention of travelling the North and South of Thailand do i, or do i not need to quarantine on arrival to Bangkok airport? And would i be required to quarantine at any point while travelling Thailand and the surrounding Asian countries?
Any advice/support would be much appreciated
It is very easy to understand. If you arrive from UK to Bangkok, you must quarantine for 14 nights in hotel room. If you arrive from UK to Phuket, you can stay in Phuket for 14 nights. Phuket is an island so it is like a bubble and you stay there for 14 nights before you can travel to Bangkok or other provinces in Thailand.
It is always the point of entry that will determine if you need to quarantine or not.
Is a Thai national required to quarantine when traveling from Udon Thani to Bangkok?
No, there is no need to quarantine when traveling from Udon Thani to Bangkok.
Im planning to travel this coming December ..Im from Philippines
Im fully vaccinated..do i need a quarantine? What are the requirements to enter
Travelers or passengers flying to Thailand from the Philippines are required to quarantine for 14 nights in Bangkok before you can go to other cities or provinces in Thailand.
I am a citizen of USA. If I fly into Phuket from USA under Sandbox Program on July 1st, am I required to be vaccinated to enter Phuket? Or, will the Thai authorities accept COVID 19 negative test result completed with 72 hours instead of the proof of vaccination in order for me to visit Phuket?
In order for you to be able to stay in Phuket without quarantine, you need to be fully vaccinated. If you are and adult and you are not fully vaccinated, you need to stay in an quarantine hotel for 14 days before you can travel around Phuket island.
I plan on traveling domestically from BKK to Koh Samui for the weekend. Do I need a negative test result, vaccination, or to be quarantined in Samui?
Yes, I would recommend to have COVID 19 test before traveling to other cities such as Samui, Phuket and Chiang Mai to avoid any isolation or quarantine.
Hello there, I’m planning to travel from Bangkok to Chiang Mai with my friend this July, do we need to do quarantine if we got Covid tested result? Because I checked with Chiang Mai airport they said we need to do quarantine even we are vaccinated.
You will arrive in Bangkok and you will quarantine in Bangkok for 14 days. When you travel to Chiang Mai, you only need to show your COVID 19 test so that you do not need to do the mandatory quarantine.
Can a Thai citizen fly from Chiang Mai to Phuket without needing to quarantine for 14 days after July 1, 2021?
For domestic travelers, if you are vaccinated or if you hold a COVID 19 negative test result, you do not need to quarantine.
I plan to travel with my adult daughter, she has some learning disabilities and needs my support and care. Can we stay in the same hotel room during the quarantine period? Thanks.
Yes, you can request your ASQ Hotel for a family room or a room for two people.
I’m flying in from the US on July 1st. My flight is to Bangkok. Can I take a connecting flight from Bangkok to Phuket and do the Sandbox Programme there instead of the ASQ in Bangkok?
To avail the Phuket Sandbox Program, you must arrive in Phuket directly. You cannot transit in Bangkok. Please choose a flight that directly fly to Phuket. If your flight arrives in Bangkok, you need to quarantine in Bangkok for 14 days before you can travel to other parts of Thailand.
What’s the current process for a fully vaccinated traveler from the US to enter, following July 1, with regard to the Phuket reopening scheme?
There has been no official guideline published by the government. But here are the things I have gathered: You must enter Phuket directly, it means no transit in Bangkok. You must been vaccinated more than 14 days before arrival. You must have RT-PCR test within 72 hours before your flight to Phuket and you must stay in Phuket for 7 days in an SHA+ accredited hotel. You still have to apply for COE from the Thai Embassy. Right now, the COE application system is not updated for Phuket Sandbox so right now, when you apply for COE, the quarantine hotel is still required.
If you finished 14-day ASQ in Bangkok, do you have to quarantine in Chiang Mai again when you go there after ASQ – or can you freely move around the area?
After you complete your ASQ in Bangkok, your hotel will give you a COVID-19 clearance, you can use it when you travel to Chiang Mai or other provinces, and you do not need to do any quarantine or isolation.
How can I contact you? I would like to talk to someone on the phone
Yes, you may call us at +66840219800 on Line App or WhatsApp from 9am to 6pm Thailand time from Monday to Friday.
Our son has airplane tickets to arrive in Bangkok on May 8th, to begin his 14 day quarantine before coming to Chiang Mai. Will there be any chance he won’t be able to get to Chiang Mai, either by air or car, following his 14 day quarantine, which ends around May 23rd?
At the moment there is no travel ban for flights or cars from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The government urged those who are in Bangkok to remain in Bangkok and not to travel to another province. Since you are coming from quarantine and you will have your latest COVID test before you are out of quarantine, you may present that to your airline for your flight to Chiang Mai.
Is it correct – that the ability to do a 60 day extension for COVID expired March 30/April 1 and Thailand is no longer accepting these 60 day extensions? I am traveling mid May and wanted the peace of mind knowing I could extend to 60 days from 30 days.
Do you know if and when they will allow the 60 day COVID extension again?
Thanks again for all of your great insight and appreciation.
It has been extended. The 60-day extension due to COVID is still available until May 29th.
Has the visa amnesty been extended?
At the moment, the visa relief or COVID 19 extension has not been extended. This program is still available at any immigration office until May 29, 2021.
Rex, after the COE is submitted, I don’t see on the website where one can check the application. I don’t see a “confirm trip” menu. Where is this located or what is the link?
You can got to the same website and use the blue button “check result” using your passport, name and last name and the 6-digit PIN.
1. I am fully vaccinated and coming from the US. Is my quarantine 7 or 10 days?
2. I understand I am 45 days visa exempt also. If I choose to go with the Certificate of Entry visa free option and stay for 45 days, and I extend for another 30 days at the immigration office in Thailand, is there any option to stay even longer?
3. Am I able to fly a commercial passenger aircraft to Thailand? Media and news articles stated that with the STV, a charter or private flight was required.
Has this changed? Can passengers arrive to Thailand through regular commercial air?
4. Should the return ticket be for 30 or 45 days? If extending, can the return date on the ticket run past that?
The quarantine period for your ASQ is 7 days.
Yes, you can use the Medium Term Visitor-Visa Exemption when you apply for the COE. Once you are in Thailand, you can extend it for 30 days normal extension or you can extend it for 60 days COVID extension.
Semi-commercial flights are permitted to travel to Thailand. Just be ready because some of these flights get canceled a few days before the flight. Yes, coming from the US, you can use Qatar, ANA, or even Emirates.
Return flight must be within 45 days (you can cancel later) and the COVID 19 insurance must be 60 days.
Hi, I want to travel to Phuket on April 22. I have received the covid vaccination. Do I have to buy the airfare before applying for the COE?
Can I transit BKK for connecting flight and do the 7 day ASQH in Phuket?
Thank you for your informative posts, it is very helpful for planning trips to Thailand.
The COE or certificate of entry is required for all travelers to Thailand, foreigners, and Thais. Flight booking with a return flight within 45 days is required if you would like to use the visa exemption. You also need to book a 7-day quarantine at an ASQ hotel in Phuket and you must also have a COVID 19 travel insurance.
The COVID test must be done within 72 hours prior to your flight to Thailand.
Does Thailand accept the Johnson & Johson vaccine?
Yes, you can upload your vaccination certificate when you apply for the COE online. You will be allowed to quarantine for 7 days.
Are Saliva PCR tests accepted by Thai Authorities?
I am working at the airport cinic and we are providing PCR tests at an international airport in Tokyo, Japan.
In Japan, saliva based PCR tests are approved by the health auuthority.
The airlines seem to accept Covid-free certificates done by Saliva as samples. They let passengers get on bored. But how about the restriction on arrival ?
Yes, both Saliva and Swab tests are accepted as long as these are RT-PCR tests for COVID 19 and it was performed within 72 hours before the flight to Thailand.
Hi, I would like to know if the 10 days of quarantine will be part of the tourist visa.
So if I travel to Thailand with a 60 day visa will I have 50 days left or will the visa period start after I quarantined?
Yes, the quarantine is part of your visa. So if you decide to use the 45-day visa exemption, the 10 or 11 days will be quarantine and the remaining days will be free for you to use in any kind of accommodation in Thailand. If you have the 60-day tourist visa, you can use the 50 days for your own plans and you can also extend it for 30 days or even 60 days at the immigration office.
Hello Rex, I just want to make sure, as people I know have been confused about the current restrictions for entering Thailand. My mother, as a tourist coming from America, will not need a visa before she flies, correct? She will be able to simply enter the country, with the right documents, and get a visa on arrival, is that right? And she won’t be restricted to where she can travel to after quarantine in Bangkok?
Thank you so much for providing such clear answers to all questions!
Yes, you are correct that your mother can travel to Thailand without a visa. She can stay for 45 days. However, she must apply for a COE or certificate of entry. She must do it online. She must choose MEDIUM TERM VISITOR- VISA EXEMPTION. She needs to upload her two-way flight information, ASQ hotel for 7 or 10 days, COVID 19 insurance. Yes, you are correct that she can travel to any province without restriction after completing the quarantine. As of today, April 6, Bangkok is in red zone but so far there is no official announcement if people coming from Bangkok to another province will have to self-isolate.
When do you expect travel without quarantine if fully vaccinated?
Based on the 4-stage plan of the government, that would be October 2021.
When traveling to Thailand after quarantaining for 10 days can you travel freely within Thailand? Or can you only stay in your hotel and stay there for your holiday?
I like to travel around the country and visit multiple locations.
I hope you can answer these questions.
Yes, you may travel to other provinces after you have completed your ASQ in Bangkok. You will receive a certificate from your ASQ Hotel stating you have no COVID 19 and you can travel to other parts of Thailand. Please make sure also that your COVID 19 Insurance will cover the duration of your trip.
Can I request the COE while I am in a different country than my home country and fly from there? Because my country, which is eligible to fly on the non visa scheme has many flight cancellations and no direct flights so I don’t want to take the chance the flight will be cancelled, so I prefer to go first to a country which has direct flights to Thailand and book from there.
Yes, you can apply for the Visa Exemption COE online even if you are not in your country. You need to apply for the COE in the country where your flight will depart. The application for the COE will take 3 to 15 days so it is better to apply for it earlier as possible. You need to prepare a scanned copy of your passport, bank statement, return flight, ASQ Hotel reservation, COVID 19 Insurance and you must have a COVID PCR test before the flight.
What about for people that arrived in Thailand before April 1st and already in quarantine for 14 days. Can the quarantine time be reduced to 7 or 10 days if you are already vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine?
The new order is applicable to those who are arriving in Thailand on April 1 and onward. Those who are qualified, will have in their COE that they will have 7 or 10 days quarantine. For those who are already in Thailand, you will have to complete the quarantine at the ASQ Hotel that you have already booked.
SIR, DO YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH CERTIFICATE SAMPLE OR ANY FORMAT AVILABLE ?
Do you mean Insurance Certificate or the COVID test Certificate?
The Fit-to-Fly Certificate is not required starting April 2, 2021.
My daughter 11 years old born in Thailand and still live their, I plan come and visit her for one week. I have had both of my vaccination shots. my last shot was one month ago. what will my Requirements be? Do I have to stay in Bangkok before I can go to our home.
If your nationality is under the Visa Exemption program. You may avail of the 45-day visa exemption and you only need to apply for the COE online. You need to have a return flight, ASQ Hotel booking, COVID 19 Insurance for Thailand, COVID 19 PCR test and you need to show the vaccination certificate. You will have to undergo 7-day quarantine and after that, you are free to visit your child in the province.

I am in Austria now and plan to return to Thailand in early May 2021, with the latest policy starting April 1st, could you pls advise if I still need a COE? I understand I need to present covid-test results (negative) before traveling and book a 10 day ASQ. is there anything I need to prepare before flight?
