The Thai government has announced it will ease its COVID-19 entry requirements for those entering the country under the “Test & Go” scheme.

Key Points:

  • Beginning March. 1, travelers arriving through the “Test & Go” scheme will no longer be required to quarantine upon arrival.  To use the scheme, travelers must:
    • Take a PCR test on the first day after arrival and a rapid test on the fifth day after arrival.
    • Have proof of a prepaid one night stay in a government-approved hotel to wait for the results of the PCR test taken on the first day after arrival.
    • Have an insurance policy that covers at least $20,000.

Additional Information: Thai authorities will still require travelers to have proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure to enter Thailand. More information regarding the Thailand Pass is available here.

BAL Analysis: Travelers are reminding that entry requirements can change with little or no notice. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
