Regulatory Updates for Entry into Thailand

On April 29, 2021, Thailand’s Centre of  COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced the extension of the quarantine period for all international travelers regardless of their nationalities or vaccination status in order to reduce the risk of local transmission of new COVID-19 variants in Thailand.

From May 1, 2021, the new regulation expands the quarantine period to 14 days for all travelers entering Thailand regardless of origin or vaccination status.

  • Travelers who obtain the Certificate of Entry (COE) after May 1, 2021, must be quarantined for no less than 14 days.
  • Travelers who receive a COE before May 1, 2021, will be quarantined as follows:
    • Those arriving in Thailand between May 1-5, 2021 will be quarantined as indicated in the COE (7, 10, or 14 days depending on vaccination record).
    • Those arriving in Thailand from May 6, 2021, onwards must be quarantined for no less than 14 days.
