While the COVID -19 global pandemic is still ongoing, Thailand has managed to keep COVID-19 transmission under control. Community transmission has been low for the past six months, although there are a few cases linked to people (local and foreigners) entering the country.
Before travelling to Thailand, passengers will be required to present a medical certificate with a negative RT-PCR laboratory test dated not more than 72 hours prior to the flight, a fit-to-fly certificate, and insurance coverage with evidence guarantee that it will cover your own health care or treatment expenses, including COVID -19 expenses throughout the stay in Thailand.
As part of the Royal Thai Government’s COVID-19 precautionary measures to prevent resurgence of local COVID transmission, and depending on the COVID -19 transmission situation in Thailand by early 2021, arriving passengers may be required to undergo at least 14 days of self-quarantine at a government-designated Alternate State Quarantine (ASQ) facility at your own cost or State Quarantine for Thai nationals. Arriving passengers will be required to undergo a RT-PCR test performed by medical personnel and designated by Thai Authorities. If the RT-PCR test is positive, the Ministry of Public Health will coordinate the transfer of the person to a hospital of choice at your own cost for hospital admission and treatment.
