The Thai government has eased its COVID-19 entry and testing requirements.

Key Points:

  • As of April 1, travelers, regardless of their vaccination status or departure country, do not need a pre-departure COVID-19 test to enter the country.
  • Thai authorities are no longer requiring individuals to have a negative PCR test that was taken within 72 hours before departure.
  • Travelers are still required to obtain a Thailand Pass QR-code before traveling to Thailand and take a PCR test on their first day of arrival until further notice.

Additional Information: Thai authorities are expected to ease other entry requirements in the coming months, including the requirement of taking a PCR test on the first day of arrival.

BAL Analysis: Entry and health requirements may 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.
