From stunning landscapes and excellent climate to exotic delicacies, Thailand has everything it takes to keep you staying longer than you thought. And if you’re looking to visit the gorgeous country, do not miss the new entry rules that have come into effect from May 1, 2022.  The good news is that starting from May 1, fully vaccinated travellers who are making their way to Thailand are no longer needed to take a brief hotel quarantine and undergo an RT-PCR Covid-19 test upon arrival. Business travellers, visitors and holiday goers are quite upbeat about the latest easing of entry restrictions.

The vaccinated travellers will then be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom. *For arrivals by land using a border pass, they will be allowed a stay of no longer than 3 days within the specified areas only.

 

 

Likewise, unvaccinated / not fully vaccinated travellers who have uploaded proof of a negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of travel via the Thailand Pass system will be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom. Otherwise, unvaccinated / not fully vaccinated travellers must proceed to undergo the quarantine for 5 days. The trip to the prebooked accommodation must be by a prearranged vehicle on a sealed route within a travelling time of no longer than 5 hours. Then, they must undergo an RT-PCR test on Day 4-5. Travellers under 5 years of age, travelling with parents and undergo the quarantine together, can have a saliva test. Travellers whose test result returns as negative will be allowed to go anywhere in the kingdom, while those whose test result returns as positive will be referred for appropriate medical treatment and the expenses must be covered by the required insurance / own expense for foreign travellers, or national healthcare coverage for Thais and eligible foreign expatriates.
