However, travellers who have not been vaccinated, are without a vaccine certificate, or are partially vaccinated, and who arrive in Thailand by air will still be required to serve 10-day quarantine, and undergo two RT-PCR tests.

Effective 1 October 2021 (Friday), fully-vaccinated travellers to Thailand will serve a seven-day quarantine, down from the previous 14-day period.

In a press release, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said this will apply to travellers who have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) or the World Health Organisation (WHO) no less than 14 days before their travel date. They will be required to present the vaccine certificate (either the original or a printed copy) at the point of entry into Thailand.

During the quarantine, they will be required to undergo two RT-PCR tests – first upon arrival on days zero to one, and the second before finishing the quarantine period on days six to seven.

Meanwhile, travellers who have not been vaccinated, are without a vaccine certificate, or are partially vaccinated, and who arrive in Thailand by air will still be required to serve 10-day quarantine, and undergo two RT-PCR tests – first upon arrival on Day days zero to one, and the second on days eight to nine.

The 10-day quarantine will also be applied to those who arrived by air before 1 October, going back until 18 September. For example, arrivals between 18-20 September could leave the Alternative Quarantine (AQ) system on 1 October. Arrivals on 30 September, before 1800hrs, can now leave on 10 October, and those who arrived after 1800hrs can leave on 11 October.

The TAT that travellers who have not been vaccinated, are without a vaccine certificate, or are partially vaccinated, and who arrive in Thailand by land will be required to enter a 14-day quarantine, and undergo two RT-PCR tests – first upon arrival on days zero to one, and the second on days 12 to 13.

Overall, the TAT has highlighted that in order to be eligible to enter in Thailand, vaccinated international travellers still need to have all of their advance arrangements in good order for arrival and entry.

These include:

  • A valid visa or re-entry permit;
  • A Certificate of Entry (COE) issued by the Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate;
  • A COVID-19 health insurance policy;
  • A confirmation of Alternative Quarantine (AQ) hotel booking, and
  • A medical certificate with a RT-PCR laboratory result indicating that COVID-19 was not detected issued no more than 72 hours before departure.

Vaccinated foreign tourists are who are interested to travel to Thailand are urged  to enquire at the Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate in their home country for more details.
