The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has announced that Thailand’s Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has approved the lifting of the Thailand Pass’ registration and $10,000 health insurance requirement for international arrivals beginning July 1, 2022.

From July 1, 2022, international visitors are only required to show proof of either a certificate of vaccination or a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test result within 72 hours of travel in a print or digital format. 

Random checks will be made upon all international travellers’ arrivals at Thailand’s international airports and land border checkpoints (in 22 provinces). 

Should those not fully vaccinated or unvaccinated be unable to show proof of a pre-arrival negative test, they will be required to undergo a professional ATK test at the point of entry.

“We are thrilled to announce the removal of the ‘Thailand Pass’ and $10,000 health insurance requirements for international visitors beginning July 1, as it further simplifies the ability for all to experience the vibrant culture, cuisine, and natural beauty of Amazing Thailand. We’re hopeful that easing the arrival process will encourage travellers to plan their visits, resulting in a boost to Thailand’s tourism,” said Santi Sawangcharoen, director of the TAT New York Office and acting director of the TAT Toronto Office. “The ‘Land of Smiles’ is eager and excited to welcome travelers to experience all the beloved destinations across Thailand just as easily as they used to.”

Bangkok along with 76 other provinces have been approved by the CCSA as green zones, thus allowing businesses to resume new normal businesses and activities nationwide.
