- Updates to vaccination certificate
- Official launch and expansion of Exemption from Quarantine Scheme
The government of Thailand announced an updated vaccine certificate called the “COVID-19 Certificate of Vaccination.” Further, the government outlined details concerning the requirements for the vaccine certificate and launched a new scheme for specific travelers to be exempt from quarantine. Individuals vaccinated in Thailand who would like to obtain a COVID-19 Certificate of Vaccination will require the following documents:
- A completed COVID-19 vaccination certificate demonstrating full vaccination from an approved two-dose or a single-dose vaccine
- A passport with an expiry date of no more than six months from the date of entry
Currently, three offices can issue the COVID-19 vaccination certificate if an appointment is secured through the Mor Phrom Application.
Thailand’s Exemption from Quarantine (Test and Go) scheme was launched on November 1, 2021, for international travelers entering Thailand. Under this scheme, travelers are exempt from Thailand’s quarantine requirements if they receive a negative RT-PCR test taken on the first day of arrival. This scheme is only open for travelers who are fully vaccinated. All other travelers are required to undergo a ten-day mandatory quarantine at a government-approved facility. Travelers must arrive through the international airports of Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Mai, U-Tapao, Buriram, or Phuket to be eligible for the Exemption scheme.
