International Airlines informed of new arrival rules from May 1


The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) notified international airlines that all Covid-19 restrictions on Thailand will be lifted from May 1.

According to the CAAT announcement on Wednesday, fully vaccinated travelers can enter Thailand from May 1 without having a Covid-19 test. However, if they show or develop symptoms, they are advised to take antigen tests.

Those who are unvaccinated, on the other hand, can present an RT-PCR test within 72 hours before their trip. If they do not have a prior RT-PCR test result, they must be quarantined for five days and undergo an RT-PCR test on the fourth or fifth day of the quarantine.

All air arrival must have Covid-19 insurance with a $10,000 coverage. They also need to provide evidence of their vaccination status or RT-PCR test results and their Covid-19 insurance to the Thailand Pass system before traveling. Once verified, they will receive a QR code.

Please note that passengers without the QR code can be denied boarding by the airline staff.

The airlines concerned must take responsibility for returning passengers without a QR code to the countries of origin, CAAT said.
