According to the newspaper Bangkok PostMinister of Tourism and Sports Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said that the ministry and the Tourism Authority of Thailand will raise a proposal to remove the above procedures during the meeting of the Center to handle the COVID-19 situation on April 22.
If approved, the new policy will take effect May 1. Accordingly, visitors can enter Thailand with a vaccine passport much simpler than current procedures.
Mr. Phiphat confirmed that Thailand is ready to welcome tourists back because the public health system is fully equipped.
In order to stimulate demand for the tourism industry and not be overtaken by other countries, the Thai Government has removed the requirement for RT-PCR testing for travelers before boarding from April 1.
It is expected that the requirement to do an RT-PCR test after entry for foreign visitors will also be replaced by a rapid test conducted by medical staff from next month.
Currently, international visitors are still required to undergo PCR testing on the first and fifth days after entering Thailand.
Thailand is running a Test & Go program for international visitors (including Vietnam). Travelers are required to obtain a Thailand Pass by accessing the Thailand Pass website, selecting Non-Thai, selecting Test & Go, submitting a photo of the card, COVID-19 vaccination certificate, insurance scan, hotel booking certificate .
