- All travelers will be allowed to enter Thailand without having to undergo pre-departure testing
On April 1, 2022, the Thai government announced that all travelers entering the country will not be required to obtain a COVID-19 test prior to departure. Travelers will still need to obtain a Thailand Pass QR code before entering the country and undergo an RT-PCR test on the first day of arrival in the country. Travelers will also be required to undergo self-administered ATK tests on the fifth day of entry and report test results in the Mor Prom app.
Travelers entering the country through the Sandbox program or the alternative quarantine program will also have to undergo a period of quarantine, but the period has been reduced to five days.
What are the changes?
The Thai government updated its COVID-19 related entry requirements for all international travelers on April 1, 2022. As a result, travelers will no longer be required to undergo COVID-19 tests before departure. Travelers will still need to meet any additional entry requirements, such as post-arrival testing and quarantine.
