Thailand – one of the most popular countries for travel opened for fully-vaccinated Indian travellers from November 1, 2021. Travellers must obtain a Thailand Pass from the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s official website. This information was provided by TAT Mumbai during a recent roundtable meeting with a few of the leading B2B travel trade media in Mumbai.

A list of documents has been issued by Thailand tourism to ease the process. Here’s a checklist for the required documents:
– A certificate of Vaccination (fully vaccinated) with an approved vaccine at least 14 days before travelling.
– Those previously infected within 3 months must have received 1 dose of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before travelling.
– Travellers under 12 years of age, travelling with parents or guardians, are exempt from the vaccination requirement.
– A Medical Certificate with an RT-PCR lab result indicating that COVID-19 is not detected issued any more than 72 hours before travelling (all travellers).
– A confirmed payment for a 1-night stay at SHA+, AQ, OQ, or AHQ accommodation, and 1 RT-PCR test.
An insurance policy with coverage no less than US$50,000.
Travellers can choose from a list of 17 destinations, called as ‘Sandbox destinations’. Visitors will have to stay for seven nights in one of these destinations; afterwards, they are free to move to any of the other parts of Thailand. If you have been wondering about these 17 sandbox destinations, here is the list:
Chiang Mai
Buri Ram
Chin Buri
Prachuap Khiri Khan
Samut Prakan
Surat Thani
Udon Thani
The Thailand Pass will allow fully vaccinated travellers to enter Thailand without mandatory quarantine or sandbox stay. They only have to stay for one night in an ASQ or SHA+ Hotel while they wait for the result of the COVID 19 RT-PCR test taken upon arrival.
One can also find the list of SHA approved hotels, attractions and restaurants on the official site of TAT.
Unvaccinated children below 12 years may travel with vaccinated parents without quarantine.
Readers are advised to visit the official website of Thailand Tourism for detailed guidelines and requirements or connect with your travel advisor before making any travel plans, or reservations for Thailand.
