Thailand Travel Restrictions for Foreigners

Updated last January 06, 2022


This information is posted to provide information to foreign visitors traveling to Thailand during the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. Thailand travel restrictions have been implemented and strict laws are in place for travelers coming into the country.

Thailand Pass

Thailand Pass is a web-based system that replaced the Certificate of Entry, one of the requirements for entering Thailand.

December 21, 2021 Update: Thailand Pass will be temporarily closed for all new Test and Go and Sandbox new applications (except Phuket Sandbox), starting on December 22, 2021 until further notice.

Application for the Thailand Pass is free of charge and you do not need any assistance to apply for one. However, there may be instances where some individuals voluntarily choose a paid service provider such as a law firm to assist them to prepare their documents and to submit them on their behalf. These paid services offered by Siam Legal can be purchased on this link:

COVID-19 Travel Insurance

There is a mandatory requirement for visitors entering Thailand to buy COVID-19 Travel insurance before entry. The health insurance coverage must be for a minimum of $100,000 for their period of stay.

The COVID Travel Insurance can be purchased online in 5 minutes. A policy is emailed to the buyer immediately for their use in the application process for entering requirements. All major credit cards are accepted to buy COVID-19 travel insurance for travel to Thailand.

Coverage is available for 30, 60, 90, 180, 270, and 365 day period. Older visitors are experiencing problems obtaining coverage as many insurers have restricted ages for their cover.

This also includes travelers who are coming from countries that are not eligible to participate in Phuket or Samui Plus Sandbox programs.

Unvaccinated travelers, regardless of nationality and country of departure, will be required to undergo a mandatory quarantine of at least 10 days in a designated ASQ hotel.

Children who are unvaccinated must quarantine for 10 days including their parents who must also quarantine for 10 days regardless of vaccination status.
