General tourists are not required to apply for a Thai visa. Visitors from countries under the visa exemption list are not required to obtain a Thai visa in order to travel to Thailand for tourism purposes.

The Thai Immigration Bureau will allow foreigners to stay in Thailand for 30 days. Tourists will have the option to apply for 30 days visa extension at any local immigration office in Thailand. The visa extension due to COVID-19 is valid for 60 days.

From 1 July 2022, travellers are only required to present either a certificate of vaccination, a negative PCR test or a professional ATK test result within 72 hours of travel. Thailand’s airport authorities will also conduct random checks on arriving passengers at international airports and land border checkpoints (in 22 provinces).

Travellers have simply been categorised under the two new schemes as follows:
