REOPENING OF THE BORDERS:
Since 1st July 2022, Thailand lifted the "Thailand Pass" registration scheme.
Foreign visitors are only required to show the proof of either a COVID-19 vaccination certificate or a negative RT-PCR or RAT (Rapid Antigen - NOT self-Antigen) test result within 72 hours of travel.
Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travelers who are unable to show proof of a pre-arrival negative COVID-19 test have to undergo a RAT test upon arrival.
The health insurance requirement of US$10,000 (EUR 9,500) for foreign arrivals entering the country has also been lifted.
VISA EXEMPTION AND BILATERAL AGREEMENT
Thai authorities are allowing travelers from 56 countries to enter the country without visas. Nationals from France, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain and Luxembourg are permitted to enter Thailand on a visa exemption scheme for a period of 45 days. A passport with a validity of more than 6 months and a plane ticket to exit Thailand within 45 days of arrival are requested when applying for the mandatory “Certificate of Entry” (COE) at the Thai Embassy of their home country.
