Entry requirements for Thailand from June 1, 2022

The rules for people visiting Thailand change from June 1, 2022.


The good news is the rules changes mean that it is now easier and there are fewer requirements to enter Thailand than at any other point during the pandemic.


However, there are still a few requirements in place that tourists need to follow.

The most notable of the new changes centre around the specific requirements for fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers.

In all situations, there is no requirement for travelers to undergo quarantine when entering the country.


People who are partially vaccinated or unvaccinated only need to provide proof of a negative result from an RT-PCR test or professional ATK within 72 hours of travel via the Thailand Pass system.

During the Stay

While in Thailand, both vaccinated and unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers are advised to strictly follow the health and safety standards. Travellers who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms should get tested. If testing positive, they must get the appropriate medical treatment.
