Thailand has issued new rules for airlines and passengers to enter the kingdom starting June 1, 2022
The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand has issued a special notice to airlines (NOTAM) on the latest entry policy, reflecting the cancellation of the Thai Pass system for returning Thai nationals and the elimination of mandatory quarantine for all foreign tourists, including unvaccinated travelers.
However, foreign travelers are still required to register for the Thai Pass system in order to receive a QR code, which will be checked at the Thai airport upon arrival. The QR code is generated immediately at check-in, with no waiting period.
NOTAM contains the following latest guidelines for passengers and airlines in Thailand:
Thai nationals can present a vaccine certificate or a negative antigen rapid test (ATK) or OT-PCR to enter Thailand. Registration for the Thai Pass is not required.
Overseas travelers must register through Thai Pass and provide all necessary documents to obtain a QR Code. Airlines may refuse passengers who do not present the QR Code before boarding.
Travelers with a full Covid-19 vaccination certificate will not need to take the test upon arrival. However, they are encouraged to take the test if they experience symptoms similar to Covid-19.
Partially vaccinated or unvaccinated travelers can enter Thailand by presenting a negative ATK or RT-PCR test 72 hours before arrival.
Foreign travelers must also present a certificate of insurance from Covid-19 with $10,000 in coverage or a similar certificate of coverage for medical treatment from Covid-19 during their stay in Thailand.
Airlines are responsible for verifying the QR codes of Thai Pass passengers. Any passengers who land in Thailand without a QR code will be placed in the care of the airline.
Foreign travelers without a QR Code Thai Pass, vaccination certificate and a negative test result must follow the instructions of airport staff upon arrival in Thailand.
Staff at airports must follow Covid-19 preventive measures, including wearing masks and temperature screening on entry and exit.
