Thailand will be free of quarantine for fully vaccinated tourists from Nov 1st. Thailand will officially open to international tourists without quarantine.
On October 26, the National Tourism Administration of Thailand announced that Thailand has officially announced that it will officially open to fully vaccinated international tourists from November 1, 2021, and enter the country without quarantine.
At that time, tourists from 46 countries and regions, including China, will be able to enter Thailand without isolation. In addition, Thailand has also declared special areas as areas for relaxation of epidemic prevention and control, providing more choices for tourists from countries and regions that have received isolation-free entry treatment.
The National Tourism Administration of Thailand stated that Thailand is ready to welcome international travelers who have been vaccinated. From next month, passengers will be able to enter Thailand by plane without isolation.
According to TEST&GO (T&G) of Thailand’s “Isolation-Free Entry Program for Pilot Countries and Regions”, the Quarantine-Free Entry Program is divided into three phases of test execution, which are November 1, November 16, and December 1, 2021.
Passengers need Log in to the relevant website to submit the entry application materials, and then check the vaccination information, accommodation fee and the payment certificate of the COVID-19 nucleic acid test fee, etc., and finally obtain the entry application and the QR code of the Thailand Pass.
Currently, 46 countries and regions that have obtained Thailand’s approval for tourists to enter the country without isolation include: Mainland China, Hong Kong, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bhutan, Brunei, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, Cyprus, and the Czech Republic , Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UAE, the United Kingdom and the United States, etc.
Thailand’s new entry regulations emphasize that tourists must arrive in Thailand by air from the 46 approved countries and regions mentioned above.
Tourists outside of these 46 countries and regions who want to go to Thailand must stay in the above-mentioned countries and regions for more than 21 days. Tourists transiting into Thailand through the above-mentioned countries and regions will not enjoy this policy.
In terms of material preparation, tourists entering Thailand must prepare in advance an entry permit (COE) or a registration certificate for entering Thailand through a designated platform; tourists entering Thailand must hold a certificate of negative nucleic acid test within 72 hours; patients who have recovered from the COVID-19 disease must also provide a certificate of rehabilitation medicine. Prove that the recovery time has exceeded 3 months.
In addition, tourists entering Thailand must provide an insurance policy with an insured amount of not less than 50,000 U.S. dollars, which includes treatment costs related to infection with the COVID-19, hospitalization expenses and other medical expenses during their stay in Thailand. Tourists entering Thailand must book in advance and pay no less than one night’s isolation accommodation fee. The isolation accommodation location must be an isolation hotel or isolation hospital approved by the Thai Ministry of Health. The prepaid fee should include one night’s accommodation fee, nucleic acid test fee and antigen test kit (ATK) fee.
The most important thing is that tourists entering Thailand must provide proof of complete vaccination.
Fully vaccinated tourists must provide a vaccination certificate 14 days before departure, and the vaccine category is a vaccine certified by the Thai Ministry of Public Health or the World Health Organization; a vaccination certificate that has completed at least one dose 14 days before the travel date is required.

After tourists arrive at Thailand International Airport, they must be transported by the designated airport transfer system to a pre-arranged COVID-19 virus testing center or a pre-booked hotel, where they will undergo the nucleic acid test required for day 0-1, download and download at the same time. Install the designated mobile phone APP to receive the nucleic acid test results. The results are generally available on the same day. Tourists must wait for the test results to be announced in the accommodation. If the nucleic acid test is negative, tourists can go anywhere in Thailand.
On July 1 this year, Thailand formally implemented the “sandbox plan” in Phuket that is free of isolation and opening. Tourists from countries with low and medium risk of COVID-19 pneumonia infection can enter Phuket without isolation as long as they have a full injection of 2 shots of the COVID-19 vaccine. According to previous plans, if tourists want to go to Thailand other than Phuket, they must first stay in Phuket for 14 nights before leaving.
In terms of visas, from October 1 this year, the National Tourism Administration of Thailand has announced that travelers from 18 countries or regions including China, India, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Romania, etc. can apply for a 15-day visa on arrival at any international airport in Thailand.
