Starting from 1st July, foreign nationals will only be required to produce either a proof of vaccination or a negative RT-PCR test report (or the test result of a professional ATK done within 72 hours of travel). These documents will be acceptable in both print and electronic formats.

Random checks will, however, still be in place. Under these checks, travellers who are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated will be required to undergo a professional ATK test at the entry points, in case they fail to show a negative test result for COVID-19.

The news is expected to boost tourism in Thailand, similar to the recent guideline updates in other countries. It will also signify the resumption of normal businesses and activities in the nation as it enters into this post-pandemic stage.
