What’s New: In addition to arrival by air, travellers will be allowed to enter by land (at Nong Khai’s border checkpoint, starting 24 December, 2021) and sea provided that they meet the vaccination and testing requirements.
The current 1-night waiting period in a hotel and a confirmed payment (for 1-night stay at SHA++ hotel, 1 RT-PCR test, and pre-arranged airport transfer) will no longer be required.
On arrival testing will be changed to an ATK method.
Travellers under 6 years of age, travelling with parents with a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours before travelling, are not required to have a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR test result and can have saliva test when entering to the Kingdom.
Travellers 6-11 years of age, travelling with parents, must have a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours before travelling.
Travellers 12-17 years of age, travelling with parents, are not required to be vaccinated but must have a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours before travelling. Those unaccompanied must get vaccinated with at least one dose of an approved vaccine and must have a negative RT-PCR test result.
Travellers previously infected within 3 months before travelling must have a medical certificate of recovery or get vaccinated with at least one dose of an approved vaccine for an unspecified period of times before travelling.
Remain Unchanged: Travel from the approved countries/territories (currently 63 including the Philippines) where travellers must have stayed for 21 days or more. Returning Thais and foreign residents, who previously travelled from Thailand, are exempt from this requirement.
An insurance policy with coverage no less than US$50,000. Thais and foreign residents who have national healthcare coverage are exempt from this requirement.
Everyone 18 years of age and older should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19 with an approved vaccine at least 14 days before travelling to Thailand, and must have a negative RT-PCR test result 72 hours before the travel date.
