New simplified rules for entry into Thailand announced by the local authorities. From next Friday, April 1, the mandatory quarantine period for unvaccinated travelers who decide to visit the kingdom will be reduced to five days. In addition, it will no longer be necessary to undergo PCR testing for coronavirus before departure. According to Thai media, an official announcement will be released at the end of the month.
Unvaccinated travelers entering Thailand under the Alternative Quarantine Program will now be able to serve a mandatory hotel quarantine upon arrival for only five days instead of ten, as before.
It is clarified that those who have been vaccinated with a government-approved or WHO-approved drug at least 14 days before travel can enter the country through the Test & Go or “Sandbox” (valid for those entering Pattaya, Phuket or Koh Samui). Recall that the Russian-made vaccine “Sputnik V” is recognized by the Thai authorities. In addition, before flying to Thailand, all travelers must apply for a Thai Pass QR code through the official website of the Department of Consular Affairs.
Last week, the Covid-19 Situation Management Center made the decision to shorten the quarantine period and waive the pre-flight coronavirus test, which was previously required 72 hours before takeoff. The new rules are due to enter into force on April 1, but before they become official, they must be published in the government newspaper Royal Gazette.
