Thailand’s Centre of COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) have approved the removal of the Thailand Pass registration scheme and the US$10,000 health insurance requirement for foreign visitors, effective 1st July, 2022. Both requirements were removed for Thai nationals from 1st June, 2022.
The Thailand Pass was not popular with travellers eager to travel again and it is expected that the removal of the requirement, as well as the dropping of the travel insurance requirement will encourage potential visitors.
From 1st July, 2022, all foreign nationals only need to show proof of either a certificate of vaccination, a negative RT-PCR or a professional ATK test result, within 72 hours of travel. These may be in print or digital format. Random checks will be made on arrivals at Thailand’s international airports or land border checkpoints (in 22 provinces).
Travellers who are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated who are unable to show proof of a pre-arrival negative test from random checks will be required to undergo a professional ATK test at the point of entry.
In addition, the CCSA have designated Bangkok and 76 provinces as the Surveillance or green zone.This allows resumption of normal business and other activities nationwide. As part of maintaining the safety and health measures under the universal prevention, the Royal Thai Government will announce a new set of guidelines as the nation is stepping into post-pandemic.
