Getting to Thailand

Incase you haven’t yet heard the news, travel to Thailand is as easy as it’s ever been since the pandemic. All inbound travelers need to do is show proof of complete vaccination or if unvaccinated, a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of travel.

“Fully vaccinated” for travel to Thailand means two doses of a double dose vaccine — or one of a single-dose vaccine — administered 14 days or more before travel. You do not need a booster to be considered fully vaccinated.

Unvaccinated travelers without a PCR test can pay for and take one on-site upon entry.

Visitors aged 17 and under travelling with adults over 18 can enter under the same rules as their parents. So if parents of a family are unvaccinated, their children aged six and up will need to show a negative PCR test. If the parents are fully vaccinated, the children can enter without proof of vaccination or test.

It’s really that simple.

NB: If you do test positive for Covid-19 while on holiday in Thailand and have mild symptoms, you should quarantine at your accommodation until you test negative.

 

Extenuating Circumstances Policy

Under our Extenuating Circumstances Policy, Samujana will allow a cancellation option 7 days prior to the first day of booked stay (with a full refund of all money paid or a free re-booking for 18 months), if any of the following extenuating circumstances apply:

  • There is a government-mandated travel ban at the primary guests’ point of origin/registered address. A proof will be required (announcement by the airline, or government for example).
  • There is a return quarantine in place at the primary guests’ point of origin/registered address. The quarantine must be at a government facility, or at a potential cost to the traveler.
  • There is a government-mandated travel ban at the point of destination (Koh Samui, Thailand).
  • There is a blanket travel restriction in place into the Kingdom of Thailand, where the primary guest will not be eligible to travel to the Kingdom of Thailand.
  • Please note, this policy can trigger earlier than the 7 days before the booked stay, if there is an official announcement that the mandates/extenuating circumstances will run through the stay period.

    We have precautions in place to ensure a healthy stay for our guests and staff. We are closely monitoring the World Health Organization (WHO) and local health agencies for the latest developments related to Covid-19 and following all guidance on the appropriate health and safety measures. Currently, this includes everything from hand washing hygiene and using specific cleaning products to the guest room and common area cleaning procedures. Naturally, our villas lend themselves well to social distancing and our team is on hand to help with anything your guests need during their stay with us including fetching groceries and arranging private trips and transport.
