Updated 4 May 2022
From 1 May 2022, Thailand ends Test & Go and Sandbox schemes. Thailand pass, the the online pre-registration system, remains, but opt to simplify the process.
Fully vaccinated for Covid-19 travellers will no longer need to show a negative RT-PCR test before departure, nor to take a PCR test on arrival. There is no longer a need to book a SHA+ hotel for one night while waiting for the result. The removal of the PCR testing for vaccinated travellers effectively abolishes the Test & Go entry scheme.
Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travellers, who have submitted a negative PCR test within 72 hours before departure via the Thailand Pass system, will be treated the SAME as vaccinated travellers, with no PCR test on arrival OR quarantine.
Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travellers who do not submit a negative PCR test prior to departure will still be required to quarantine for 5 days upon arrival, with a PCR test on day 5.
ATK test on Day 5 is recommended.
Insurance coverage requirements minimum 10,000USD.
All travelers must download and install the Morchana application.
Travel with children
- Children under 18 years traveling with fully vaccinated parents do not need to show a negative RT-PCR test 72 hours before departure. They will be treated in the same scheme as fully vaccinated travellers.
- Children age 6-17 years traveling with unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated parents are required to show a negative RT-PCR test 72 hours before departure.
- Children under 6 years do not need to show a negative RT-PCR test 72 hours before departure
Travelers with Covid-19 history
- Those who have recovered from Covid-19 must present a certificate of recovery (Immunity Pass) together with a certificate of vaccination showing 1 dose of an accepted vaccine.
