From June 1, foreign tourists will still need a Thailand Pass to enter the country. But getting it will be easier. All you need to do in the application is to provide passport data, and vaccination data and attach a health insurance policy for $10,000.
The system will then automatically issue a Thailand Pass QR code to applicants. Upon arrival in Thailand, vaccinated tourists must undergo an entry body temperature screening, after which they will be able to freely travel around the country, travel to anywhere in the kingdom.
Unvaccinated and under-vaccinated travelers need to upload a confirmation of a negative PCR test within the last 72 hours to the Thailand Pass system, then receive a QR code and travel on their itinerary without any restrictions.
The CCSA also approved a further relaxation of nationwide controls for COVID-19 within the country. To do this, the territory of the kingdom was divided into zones and “painted” into three colors: the Pilot tourist zones became “blue”, the Provinces included in the “Surveillance Zone” were highlighted in green, and the “Strictly Surveillance Zones” were left yellow.
Nightly entertainment venues such as pubs, bars, and karaoke rooms in the green and blue zones will be allowed to reopen, including the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages on premises until 24:00. However, all establishments are advised to strictly adhere to recommendations for disease prevention.
The CCSA has also lifted quarantine requirements for people who have been in contact with the infected.
