No ‘Thailand Pass’ For Citizens
As we earlier reported that the Thai Govt is considering removing the requirement for citizens returning from abroad to register for a Thailand Pass;
So finally, beginning June 1st, Thais returning to Thailand will no longer need to apply for a “Thailand Pass,” but international travellers from other countries will still need to do so, and the process for foreigners entering Thailand will be simplified.
‘Thailand Pass’ Registration Eased
The CCSA has also approved the simplified Thailand Pass registration and entry rules for international arrivals, effective 1 June 2022.
According to CCSA, International visitors to Thailand are still required to apply for the ‘Thailand Pass’ (through https://tp.consular.go.th/), but they will just need to submit passport information, and vaccination records, and a US$10,000 health insurance policy.
The Thailand Pass system will then automatically issue a Thailand Pass QR code for the applicants.

On Arrival Guidelines
Upon arrival in Thailand, vaccinated travellers must go through entry screening before being allowed to enter and travel anywhere in the kingdom.
Unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers who can provide proof of a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test within 72 hours of travel using the Thailand Pass system will also be permitted admission and will be free to travel around the kingdom.
The CCSA also approved a further relaxation of statewide COVID-19 rules with three colour-coded zones: Pilot Tourist Areas (blue zones), Surveillance (green zones), and Areas Under Stringent Surveillance (yellow zones).
Nighttime entertainment outlets in the green and blue zones, such as pubs, bars, and karaoke lounges, will be allowed to reopen, including the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages on the premises until 24.00 Hrs. However, all venues have been instructed to properly follow the preventative rules.
