In a major relief to travellers Thailand has updated its entry rules and removed the requirement for any type of quarantine of visitors coming into the country; the Southeast Asian country has also scrapped the requirement for a ‘Thailand Pass’ for Thai citizens and simplified the registration process for other visitors.

According to an announcement made by the tourism authority of Thailand, the following rules will be in effect from June 01 2022, with specific requirements for vaccinated and unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers from all countries/territories with scheduled arrivals from today (June 01).

Similarly, unvaccinated/not completely vaccinated travellers who upload proof of a negative RT-PCR test or professional ATK within 72 hours of travel using the Thailand Pass system will be granted entry and free to travel anywhere in the kingdom.
