Following the announcement by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has confirmed that Thailand is fully open to international tourists under the reopen-to-tourism policy that was implemented on October 1, 2022.
Tourists from other countries are not required to present negative ATK or RT-PCR test results.
According to the Health Ministry, those travelling to Thailand from a country that requires a negative RT-PCR test result for entry must provide proof of health insurance that covers COVID-19 treatment.
Thailand is also offering visitors a longer period of stay as part of its full reopening to tourism. The period of stay for tourists from visa-exempt countries/territories is extended to 45 days (from 30 days) until 31 March 2023, and to 30 days (from 15 days) for those eligible for a Visa on Arrival (VOA).
While Thailand welcomes all visitors, a visitor source market may require incoming visitors, including returning nationals, to have a negative PCR result.
Thailand is aligning its policies with those of other countries and will require COVID insurance for visitors from or traveling to countries such as China and India that have this requirement.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) anticipates a significant increase in tourism in 2023, targeting a total of 25 million foreign tourists, more than twice the number of visitors in 2022 and approaching the levels of the 40 million international arrivals in 2019.
