Thailand, the Southeast Asian country known for its tropical beaches, is continuing to relax its Covid-19 travel requirements for international visitors. To that end, earlier this month the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) decided to completely remove all types of quarantine for air and land arrivals, as well as the requirement to register for the ‘Thailand Pass’ for all Thai nationals returning to the country beginning June 1.
Apart from this, the CCSA has also approved the simplified ‘Thailand Pass’ registration and entry rules for international arrivals, effective 1 June 2022.

No ‘Thailand Pass’ For Thai Nationals
Thai nationals (Thai passport holders) are no longer required to register on Thailand Pass and may enter Thailand without quarantine or COVID-19 testing upon arrival beginning 1 June 2022.
However, they must bring either their vaccination certificate or, if unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated, a Covid-19 RT-PCR or Professional ATK test result issued within 72 hours of departure.
Guidelines And Requirements For Foreign Nationals
Foreign nationals arriving in Thailand by air or land on or after 1 June 2022 must register on Thailand Pass with the details, mentioned as follows;
1. Fully Vaccinated Persons must:
- Register on Thailand Pass
- Attach passport and certificate of vaccination
- Attach proof of insurance with at least 10,000 USD coverage for medical treatments in
2. Unvaccinated / Not Fully Vaccinated Persons must:
- Register on Thailand Pass
- Attach passport and COVID-19 RT-PCR / Professional ATK (NOT self-ATK) test result issued within 72 hours before travelling (must attach on Thailand Pass only)
- Attach proof of insurance with at least 10,000 USD coverage for medical treatments in Thailand
Foreign nationals can also use a COVID-19 Professional ATK (self-ATK is not permitted) test result issued within 72 hours of travel to enter Thailand beginning 1 June 2022.
Foreign nationals may also use Thai social security or a certifying letter from their employer/agency/company for insurance.
Please be advised that, as of 1 June 2022, every foreign national entering Thailand must have either a certificate of vaccination (for fully vaccinated persons) or a COVID-19 RT-PCR/Professional ATK test result issued within 72 hours before travel (for unvaccinated / not fully vaccinated persons), as the mandatory quarantine option (AQ scheme) is no longer available.
Thailand Pass QR Codes will be issued automatically within 1-2 hours of completing your registration beginning June 1, 2022. Please keep in mind that the authenticity of your documents, as well as the Thailand Pass QR Code, determines your entry into Thailand.
Unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers wishing to be exempted from quarantine must attach a negative RT-PCR / Professional ATK test result issued within 72 hours before travel in Thailand Pass, including unvaccinated / not fully vaccinated children aged 6-17 travelling with unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated parents (children aged under 6 do not have to attach the test result). Please keep in mind that children under the age of 18 who travel with properly vaccinated parents will be automatically allowed the same entrance scheme as their parents.
Applicants may enter Thailand on a different date of arrival if the new date of arrival is within 7 days before or after the initial date of arrival as shown on the QR Code (no need to re-apply or modify your application). Please keep in mind that non-Thai candidates must provide proof of medical insurance for medical treatments in Thailand for the duration of their altered travel itinerary. Please keep in mind that each Thailand Pass QR Code can only be used once.
Application on Thailand Pass is free of charge
Thailand Pass wishes to inform and advise the following in light of allegations that a number of applicants have received FAKE and SCAM emails:
- DO NOT respond or click on any attached links in the emails
- Emails from Thailand Pass regarding your applications will only be sent out from one official account ([email protected])
- The system will not ask for any personal information nor request the applicant to amend the application by email.
Please note that all registration processes are done solely on the Thailand Pass website only.
‘Thailand Pass’ Registration Eased
In addition, the CCSA has approved the simplified Thailand Pass registration and entry requirements for foreign travellers, which will take effect on June 1, 2022.
International tourists to Thailand must still apply for the ‘Thailand Pass’ (through https://tp.consular.go.th/), but they will just need to provide passport information, vaccination records, and a US$10,000 health insurance coverage, according to CCSA.
After that, the Thailand Pass system will generate a Thailand Pass QR code for the applicants.

On Arrival Guidelines
Vaccinated travellers must go through entry screening upon arrival in Thailand before being allowed to enter and travel anywhere in the country.
Unvaccinated/under-vaccinated travellers who can show documentation of a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test within 72 hours of travel utilizing the Thailand Pass system will be allowed entry and will be free to travel within the kingdom.
