Vaccinated Requirements
Entry Requirements for Vaccinated Visitors
Proof of vaccination:

You will be required to show your COVID-19 vaccinations to enter into the country as fully vaccinated.  You will be able to do this using the NHS COVID app.

Test pre-travel/recovery certificate: Not required
On arrival:

On arrival into Thailand you will be temperature checked at the airport.

You will also need to purchase and provide proof of medical insurance which will cover you for a minimum of $10,000 US per person.

Children under 18 who are not fully vaccinated can enter Thailand with their parents or guardians as long as the parent of guardians are fully vaccinated.

You will need to apply for a Thai pass on the traveller health declaration link below and upload all your documents to receive approval to travel.

From 1st July 2022, you will no longer need to apply for a Thai Pass and provide proof of insurance to travel to Thailand.  Should you travel to Thailand before the 1st July you will still need to complete the form and ensure you have adequate insurance.

Form pre-travel:

A Traveller Health Declaration form will need to be completed before travel.  Please check on the link below to see when you are able to complete the form needed for your destination.  You may need to either complete this form electronically, or print out and take with you to show at the airport of departure and arrival. It is important that you check the form as early as you can for time frames as this may need to be completed up to 7 days before travel, or as little as 24 hours before travel.

Local regulations:

You should follow social distancing guidelines at all time.  Face masks are not compulsory in most general settings, however the Thai government advises you wear a mask in crowded areas such as parks (if you cannot socially distance) and public transport.  You must wear a mask in any indoor public building.

You must also ensure that you have downloaded the MorChana app before arrival and this will need to be activated once you arrive into Phuket.  Airport offcials will check that the app is loaded onto your phone.

A number of disease control measures at national and local levels are also in place.  These include a colour rating for each of Thailand's 76 provinces based on the number of COVID-19 cases.  Restrictions in each province and for the movement between provinces depend on the colour rating and any additional local rules which can change at any time.

In some provinces there may be measures which include restrictions on dining in restaurants, gatherings of groups and closures of shops.  You should follow all guidelines locally.

If you test positive while in resort

If you test positive for COVID-19, you may need to stay where you are until you test negative. You may also need to seek treatment there.

Plan ahead and make sure you:

  • can access money
  • understand what your insurance will cover
  • can make arrangements to extend your stay and be away for longer than planned
