Bangkok – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to clarify that Thailand continues to welcome all international tourists under the fully-reopen-to-tourism policy that was introduced on 1 October, 2022.
However, while Thailand is welcoming all visitors, a visitor source market may require incoming visitors including their own nationals returning home to have a negative PCR result.
Thus, Thailand is aiming to correspond with rules of these countries – among them are China and India. Therefore, passengers from a country that has requirements for RT-PCR test must have health insurance covering treatment of COVID-19 in Thailand.
Thailand fully reopens from 1 October 2022
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is pleased to advise that as of today October 1, 2022 international travelers to Thailand will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or ATK test results, signaling the completion of the kingdom’s full reopening to international tourism.
