Must read

The Administrative Center for Covid19 Control, the CCSA today announced the termination of the nationwide emergency decree as it reclassifies the country’s Covid19 disease from “a dangerous communicable disease” to “a communicable disease under surveillance” from Oct. 1, 2022.

The CCSA also stated that from October 1, 2022, international travellers to Thailand will no longer be required to present a vaccination certificate or ATK test results.

The termination of the Covid19 emergency decree, which has been extended 25 times since March 19, 2020, means that the CCSA will be automatically dissolved and that all regulations, notices and orders from the Prime Minister and the cabinet under the decree will be revoked.

Since the pandemic, Thailand has gradually reopened to international tourism from July 2021 with Phuket Sandbox, Samui Plus and 7+7 Extension programs. This was followed by a four-stage reopening timeline from October 2021 to January 2022.

The kingdom entered the phase of full reopening from July 1, 2022, with the removal of the Thailand Pass registration scheme and foreigners who only need to show proof of vaccination or a negative ATK test result within 72 hours of travel will be lifted from October 1, 2022.

In addition, the cabinet approved an extension of the length of stay to 45 days (from 30 days) for tourists from countries/territories entitled to visa waiver, and to 30 days (from 15 days) for those eligible for a Visa on Arrival (VOA). This applies from October 1, 2022, to March 31, 2023.
