If you are planning a trip to Thailand this summer, you must be aware of the Thailand Pass and compulsory medical insurance requirements set out by the Royal Thai Govt for foreign travellers.

But now, the Thai Govt has decided to end the requirement of the Thailand Pass and mandatory $10,000 health insurance for international visitors entering the country effect from July 1, 2022.

So, the country is welcoming all travellers with proof of either a certificate of vaccination or a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test result.

In addition, all countrywide Covid-19-related restrictions, such as the wearing of masks outside and the prohibition of serving alcoholic beverages to diners, have been lifted in line with the country’s goal to reduce Covid-19 to endemic status in July.
