Last week we reported that Thailand was about to ease travel restrictions further to citizens from 56 nations. What we didn’t have was the full list of countries, now we do.
Visitors from eligible countries will now be able to travel to Thailand without either of the current unpopular visa’s the Special Tourist Visa (STV) and Tourist Visa (TV).
They will however need to have a certificate showing that they are Covid-19 free, dated within 72 hours of departure, a booking at a registered quarantine hotel for the first 14 days of their stay and undertake a further 3 Covid-19 tests on days 0/1, 9/10 and 13/14 of their quarantine.
At the end of the quarantine period, as long as all tests have been negative, travellers are free to travel throughout Thailand, visas will be extended to 45 days instead of 30, to make up for time lost due to quarantine.
Citizens of the following countries will be able to travel to Thailand without the need of a visa:
Andorra, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, San Marino, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Republic of Slovenia, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America and Vietnam.
We recommend that you contact your local Thai Embassy or Consulate prior to travelling as this is a developing situation and details are still coming out.
