Thailand reopen

March 21, 2022 – As the country prepares to downgrade the Covid-19 pandemic to endemic disease, Thailand is gearing up for a return to normality and boost economic recovery by further easing travel restrictions. Starting April 1, 2022 travellers may enter the country without the need to show proof of a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of travel.

Thailand reopen – to lift pre-arrival testing requirement starting april 1

Travellers who wish to visit the land of smiles may enter the country with or without quarantine depending on vaccination status and country of departure. Below are the updated simplified schemes:
  • Test and Go: No Quarantine – fully vaccinated travellers arriving by air from any country will be able to enter the country with no quarantine requirements. Travellers only need to undergo RT-PCR test (Day 0) when they arrive at their SHA+ or ASQ hotels and get a negative result. After getting a negative test result, travelers are allowed to travel to other parts of the country. A self-test Antigen Test Kit will be performed on the 5th Day and report your test result on the Mor Chana mobile app
  • Sandbox Program: Will be reduced to 5 nights from currently 7 nights. After completing five nights within the Sandbox destinations (Pattaya, Phuket, Khao Lak, Krabi, Samui, Koh Phang Ngan, or Koh Tao) travellers will be allowed to travel domestically within the country
  • Alternative Quarantine Program: For partially vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers, quarantine will be reduced to 5 nights from currently 10 nights in a designated quarantine hotel in Bangkok, Samut Prakan, Pattaya, Phuket, or Samui before they can travel to other parts of the country. Travellers need to undergo an RT-PCR test on Day 4-5
