The government of Thailand announced that beginning May 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travelers entering the country will no longer be required to undergo RT-PCR testing before arrival. As a result, fully vaccinated travelers will be permitted to enter the country so long as they have registered for a Thailand Pass, can provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19, and hold a health insurance policy with at least 10,000 US coverage dollars.
Unvaccinated travelers permitted to enter Thailand must provide proof of a negative pre-arrival RT-PCR test result taken within 48 hours of departure, have registered for a Thailand Pass, and hold a health insurance policy with a coverage of at least 10,000 US dollars. These travelers will also need to undergo a five-day quarantine upon arrival.
