The Cabinet of Ministers of Thailand has significantly simplified the rules for entering the country for tourists. From July 1, foreign travelers will not need to register in the Thailand Pass system before crossing the border. The corresponding government order was published in the Royal Thai Gazette.
In addition, from next month, tourists will not have to take out additional medical insurance against COVID-19.
In fact, vaccinated tourists will only need a passport and a vaccination certificate for entry, while unvaccinated tourists will need the results of a PCR test made no later than 72 hours before the trip. If the traveler does not have both the result and the PCR test, then upon arrival he will have to take tests at a local laboratory.
Finally, from this week, by order of the Cabinet of Ministers, the mask regime in Thailand is being simplified. Protective equipment will no longer need to be worn outdoors. Masks should be worn only in crowded places – in markets, on public transport, etc.
