No PCR tests for passengers travelling from the UK to Thailand (25/04/22)
From 1 May 2022, international arrivals who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to undergo any tests before or on arrival in Thailand. They are still required to register for a Thailand Pass and upload a proof of vaccination and insurance (minimum $10,000 coverage).
From 1 May 2022, unvaccinated international travellers will also no longer be required to undergo an arrival test in Thailand. They are still required to register for a Thailand Pass with a 5-day hotel booking and insurance (minimum $10,000 coverage). Once arriving in Thailand, they must proceed to undergo the quarantine for 5 days and undergo an RT-PCR test on Day 5.
An exception is made for unvaccinated travellers who are able to upload proof of a negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of travel via the Thailand Pass system. They – like those fully vaccinated – will be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom.
