Now that the COVID-19 pandemic situation in Thailand is a bit more under control, authorities have decided to ease up on a couple entry restrictions in hopes of encouraging the arrival of more international tourists in the second half of 2022.
The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), along with the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, have agreed to drop Thailand Pass and travel insurance requirements for foreigners from July 1 onwards.
According to Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, Thailand is hoping to “welcome back tourists in full force” given that there are lesser requirements to deal with. However, visitors are still required to test negative with the result shown either on a Pro-ATK or an RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours before departing for the kingdom. The visitors will be randomly asked to present the test result on arrival, and those who cannot present proof of an advanced test result will have to take a Pro-ATK test upon arrival in Thailand.
