Can I travel to Thailand from India?
Yes, you can. Thailand has now fully reopened for tourism.
Thailand has now scrapped its pre-departure RT-PCR testing requirement for vaccinated international travellers arriving in Thailand. International arrivals to Thailand are NO longer required to register for the Thailand pass. However, travellers from India are still required to have COVID insurance just in case they are tested positive for COVID-19 while in Thailand.
Travellers must have the following documents to enter Thailand:
- A valid passport or a border pass for arrivals via border checkpoints.
- Travellers should have health insurance covering at least US$10,000 for COVID-19 treatment that covers the duration of stay in Thailand plus 7 additional days.
Upon arrival in Thailand, all travellers must undergo entry screening, including a body temperature check, and present the required documents to the Immigration/Health Control officer to carry out the checks. Arrivals by land using a border pass will only be allowed to stay no longer than 3 days within the specified areas.
During the stay
While in Thailand, both vaccinated and unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travellers are advised by authorities to strictly follow the health and safety standards. Travellers who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms should get tested. If testing positive, they must get the appropriate medical treatment.
Proof of vaccination is no longer a requirement to enter Thailand.
