Latest News as of October 1, 2022

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.

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.

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

Top 20 Questions Asked this Week by our Visitors

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.

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.

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.

    Hello,

    What are the current requirements to enter Thailand for unvaccinated United States citizens? Do I still need to book a quarantine hotel? I haven’t booked any flights, but my final destination is Khon Kaen. How long can I stay in Thailand? I just wanted to make sure, if I’m quarantining, I need to make sure my stay doesn’t exceed the visa exemption period. Which airport is the best for non vaccinated travelers?

    Thank you for your time

    • July 13, 2022

      Hi Nash,

      For unvaccinated foreign traveler, you need to have 72 hours valid RT PCR and Passport. You may also get insurance with covid coverage, it’s not compulsory but we still highly suggested.

      Hi John,

      You can do self test , to see if you are positive or not. But since you are exposed with the patient and still concern, self isolation is better.

    I had 3 doses of covid 19 Vaccine and consider to have the fourth dose before I travel to Thailand this month. With limited time before travelling to Thailand I wont have at least 14 full calendar days elapsed since the fourth dose of vaccine, will I be allowed to enter Thailand and see as fully vaccinated?
    Much appreciated

    • July 12, 2022

      Hi Eve,

      If you are fully vaccinated, that’s okay. The 14 full calendar days is for those who newly got their second dose to be fully vaccinated.

    Hi, I live in Hong Kong and I have a French passport, I am fully vaccinated (3 doses with the last dose taken 3 weeks ago).
    I have a flight, on 16th July, from Hong Kong to Reunion Island via Bangkok with a transit time of about 13 hours in BKK.
    I understand that the Thailand Pass is now no longer required and the Insurance optional, but I read online that in order to transit in Bangkok I need to have a SINGLE itinerary/ticket….. I have booked both flights separately (2 different airlines) therefore I have TWO itinerary/ticket.
    Do I need to go through Immigration and “enter” Bangkok or can I stay in the Transit area?
    I will only have a hand luggage with me

    We are travelling as a family to Thailand on the 23rd of July from India. We are all Indian passport holders. Apparently, there have been some changes in the Thai Pass recently and have some questions around it. Would be great if you could help out with this?

    1. Do we need to apply for a Thai Pass?
    2. Do we need travel insurance, if Thai Pass is discontinued?
    3. Do we need a RT-PCR (72 hours) for a 4 yr old kid who will be travelling with us?
    4. Are there any other registrations needed (apart from VOA) before entering Thailand?

    Thanks in advance!

    • July 12, 2022

      Hi Vishakha,

      Following for your info.

      1.Thailand Pass is not necessary since July 1.
      2. Insurance is not mandated but still highly recommended.
      3. If you are unvaccinated, yes . Children can enter with the same procedure with parents, if you are vaccinated, Children can enter without test.
      4. None so far, it is more easier now, just secure your valid passport and vaccination certificate.

      Thank you

    Hi, I’m planning to travel on July. I had 2 doses of vaccine, but more than an year ago. Are you considered fully vaccinated after 2 doses or third dose also needs to be done?

    • June 30, 2022

      Hi Emma,

      2 doses is fully vaccinated, but better to get booster shot since your vaccine was more than 12 months.

    If I have recovered from Covid, do I still need to buy a travel insurance covering Covid-19?

    • July 21, 2022

      Hello May,

      If you plan to travel this month or onwards, you don’t need a travel insurance. However, for your safety and security we do recommend to purchase an Insurance for your travel in Thailand.

      To check the price or purchase the COVID 19 Travel insurance, please visit: http://www.siam-legal.com/axa-insurance

      Thank you.

    Hi, minimum how many days we can stay in Phuket before flying to Bangkok?

    • May 27, 2022

      Dear Ira,

      There is no minimum number of days required. You can fly to Bangkok from Phuket anytime you like.
      Thank you.

    Hello,
    I am planning a trip to Thailand.
    I would like to know if with two doses of the vaccine I can enter Thailand without quarantine.
    I took the second dose on 10/20/21.

    Thanks

    • July 21, 2022

      Hello Enrico,

      You are considered fully vaccinated if 2 doses of a vaccine against SARS-Cov-2 have been administered at least two weeks before traveling.

      Thank you.

    Children of any age will not be required RT PCR test if travelling with vaccinated parents, is this right

    • May 18, 2022

      Dear A R,

      Yes, that is correct. Children below 18 years of age can apply for No Quarantine Thailand Pass together with the parent. if the parent does not need an RT PCR test, so are the children.
      Thank you.

      What they don’t tell you is that you must have the QR code, pcr test and insurance even if it’s just a layover in Bangkok. Otherwise you can’t even get on the plane. with zipair at least. Absolute BS.

    • June 9, 2022

      Hi Tiki,

      If you will just simply layover, no need for Thailand Pass just travel insurance with covid medical coverage minimum of USD 10,000.

      Thank you

      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?

    • June 30, 2022

      Hi Cho,

      If adults are fully vaccinated, your children may enter with the same procedure with you as well. Just bring vaccination certificate.

      Thank you

    Have the requirements for using sealed flights for international travellers to get to Koh Samui via Bangkok been withdrawn from 1 May 2022?

    • April 28, 2022

      Dear Susan,

      If you are fully vaccinated, the sealed flight will not matter anymore. As soon as you land in Bangkok, you are free to travel anywhere.
      Thank you.

    My Thai girlfriend and I are resident in the Middle East and travelling together to Bangkok. Are we allowed to book one hotel room (for couples) for the one day stay at the approved hotels?

    • March 31, 2022

      Hi Sam,

      For this issue, you need to contact the hotel for an info. Some hotels allow couples to stay together but some don’t.

    Hi, to ensure my understanding is correct.
    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.
      Thank you.

    Hello,
    I am booking a trip to Koh Samui with a stop off in Bangkok. Will it be fine to get two separate flights on the same day? One being international from London and the other being domestic to Koh Samui.

    Also, would I have to book the covid hotel in Koh Samui?

    I am slightly confused by the rules.

    • March 15, 2022

      Dear Toby,

      No, it is not allowed. You need to have a sealed flight from BKK to Samui using the Bangkok Airways flight PG51xx. Your sealed domestic flight must be included in the same ticket as your international flight.
      Thank you.

    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.
      Thank you.

    Hi, are you considered fully vaccinated after 2 doses or do you need 3?

    • March 15, 2022

      Dear Ben,

      Having two vaccinations is considered fully vaccinated as long as the second dose is within the last 12 months. If your 2nd dose was more than 12 months ago, you need to have a booster at 14 days before coming to Thailand.
      Thank you.
