Thailand steps to Post Pandemic Paradise


1) Bye bye Thailand Pass!

Thailand’s Centre of COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) approved the removal of the Thailand Pass registration scheme. Foreign nationals are only required to show proof of either a certificate of vaccination or a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test result within 72 hours of travel. These can be in a print or digital format. Random checks will be made on arrivals at Thailand’s international airports or land border checkpoints (in 22 provinces). Unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers who are random checked and who are unable to show proof of a pre-arrival negative test will be required to undergo a professional ATK test at the point of entry.


2) Insurance up to you..

The US$10,000 health insurance to cover Covid related is no longer mandatory. However, it is always a good idea to have a travel (health) insurance handy when traveling..


3) Nobody will miss TM6.

This form is the arrival/departure card foreigners fill in providing passport details, name and address, etc., on their entry and exit from Thailand. The requirement just temporarily suspended I hope that this will be a blueprint for the future as everybody that I know hated it and questioned the purpose of the old fashioned registration cards in our digital age of bionic controls.


4) Back to normal

In short: apart from large gatherings there will be no restrictions anymore. See some details in the graphic or in the link below.


Enjoy your Thailand holiday!
