Thailand Updates COVID-19 Rules

Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration is dropping its requirement that international visitors undergo RT-PCR tests to enter the country.

As of May 1, fully vaccinated international travellers will no longer have to show proof of a negative pre-arrival test or undergo an arrival test.

They still must register for a Thailand Pass at which requires a certificate of COVID-19 vaccination as well as an insurance policy with coverage of at least US $10,000.

After that, they are free to travel anywhere in Thailand. Unvaccinated travellers won’t have to get tested before or upon arriving in Thailand but must undergo a 5-day hotel quarantine and must have proof of an insurance policy of at least US$10,000.

They will be tested on the 5th day and if their test is negative they will then be free to travel anywhere in Thailand.

Exceptions will be made for unvaccinated travellers who are able to upload proof of a negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of travel through the Thailand Pass system.

They can then travel freely. Tourism authorities add that all travellers should follow health and safety protocols and the situation remains fluid and they should monitor
