New arrival rules to be imposed this Sunday

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has informed airlines worldwide of new arrival rules to be imposed this Sunday, including an end to compulsory Covid-19 tests upon arrival.

CAAT announced on Wednesday that from May 1 inbound passengers with full Covid-19 vaccinations could enter the country without an additional Covid-19 test. However, they will be advised to take antigen tests if they develop any suspicious symptoms.

Those who are unvaccinated or inadequately vaccinated can undergo RT-PCR tests within 72 hours before travelling. If they do not have a prior RT-PCR test result, they must be quarantined for five days and undergo an RT-PCR test on the fourth or fifth day of the quarantine.

All air arrivals must have Covid-19 insurance with coverage worth at least US$10,000 during their stay in Thailand.

All visitors by air must provide evidence of their vaccination status or RT-PCR test results and their Covid-19 insurance to the Thailand Pass system before travelling.

When their documents are verified, they will receive a QR code of the Thailand Pass system. Airline staff can deny boarding to any passengers without a QR code.

The airlines concerned must take responsibility for returning passengers without a QR code to the countries of origin, CAAT said.
