UPDATE February 1 2024:
As of February 1st 2024, Thailand has fully reopened to tourists. There are no Covid requirements to enter the country. You do not need to show proof of vaccination or an ATK test on arrival. You can also get a stamp to stay in Thailand for 45 days rather than the standard 30 days if you’re from one of the many countries that do not need a visa to enter Thailand.
It’s worth noting that your airline may want to see proof of vaccination before allowing you to board the plane. Check with your specific carrier for their latest policy updates.
Is Covid Still A Problem In Thailand?
Covid is still an ongoing problem in Thailand. While around 70% of the Bangkok population have been double vaccinated, the percentage is lower elsewhere in the country. If you have been double vaccinated, your symptoms should be mild if you catch it. Just be aware that, despite Thailand reopening, Covid has not gone away. However, deaths and hospitalisations have dropped significantly since the end of 2021, even with the arrival of the Omicron variant.
Do I Have To Wear A Mask In Thailand?
While rules about wearing masks outside in Thailand have been relaxed, be aware that mask wearing is still often required indoors in Thailand. For example, you cannot enter shopping malls, workplaces or Bangkok’s BTS and MRT public transport systems without wearing a mask. So bring a supply of masks and be prepared to wear them.
Is Everything Open In Thailand?
Sort of. There’s a general sense of things waking up and, for visiting tourists, there are still plenty of hotels and places to eat. However, it’s undeniably quiet in many locations. If you want Thailand’s beaches and places of interest almost to yourself, visiting in the next 12 months is the time to come.
