Thailand’s entry rules are changing in May. Here is everything you need to know.
The rules for entering Thailand will be eased as follows:
Vaccinated travellers: From 1 May 2022, international arrivals who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to undergo any tests before or on arrival in Thailand. They are still required to register for a Thailand Pass via https://tp.consular.go.th/ with a certificate of COVID-19 vaccination and an insurance policy with coverage not less than US$ 10,000.
Unvaccinated travellers: From 1 May 2022, unvaccinated international travellers will also no longer be required to undergo an arrival test in Thailand. They are still required to register for a Thailand Pass via https://tp.consular.go.th/ with a 5 days hotel booking and an insurance policy with coverage not less than US$ 10,000. Once arriving in Thailand, they must proceed to undergo the quarantine for 5 days and undergo an RT-PCR test on Day 5.
An exception is made for unvaccinated travellers who are able to upload proof of a negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of travel via the Thailand pass system. They like those fully vaccinated will be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom.
While in Thailand, both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers are advised to strictly follow health and safety standards. Travellers who are experiencing COVID like symptoms should get tested. If testing positive they must get the appropriate medical treatment.
