Thailand today (January 9) revoked a policy announced over the weekend which required inbound travellers to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination, citing sufficient immunisation levels globally.
An update from the Tourism Authority of Thailand stated that the country remains fully-reopened to all international tourists.
Thailand’s health minister, Anutin Charnvirakul, clarified that “international travellers arriving in Thailand are not required to show proof of vaccination”.
Foreign arrivals are also not required to show a negative Covid-19 test result.
As part of Thailand’s full reopening to tourism, the authorities are offering a longer period of stay for visitors. Effective through March 31, 2023, visitors from visa-exempted nations will be permitted to stay up to 45 days – up from 30 days previously. Those eligible for visa-on-arrival can stay up to 30 days, up from 15 days prior.
