Do You Need a COVID Vaccine to Travel to Thailand?

What are the COVID requirements to enter Thailand?

As the requirements change often, I’ll keep you updated here! Here’s what you need to be able to enter Thailand in 2022…


According to the US embassy, COVID requirements to enter Thailand are as follows:

  • Certificate of vaccination OR an RT-PCR/Professional ATK COVID-19 test result issued within 72 hours before departure.

  • Medical insurance not required.

  • Thailand Pass is no longer required.

They also state that the airlines will check you documents which hopefully makes the landing and immigration process in Thailand much more smooth.

  1. Do you need a COVID vaccine to enter Thailand?

No COVID vaccine required to enter Thailand.

2. What are the COVID requirements when leaving Thailand?

This depends on the requirements of your destination country, but currently (oct 2022) Thailand does not have any restrictions for you to fly.

3. Do I need Travel Insurance in Thailand?

No, Thailand is no longer requiring travel insurance but you should absolutely still travel with travel insurance. I use WorldNomads or SafetyWing depending on the adventure level of the trip.

Easy peasy! Thank you to Thailand for figuring out a solution that works!!!
