Thailand makes vaccine certificate or proof of recovery from Covid mandatory for arrivals

Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health has announced the new entry measures effective from January 9, 2023, at 08.00 hrs. (GMT+7) to January 31, 2023, at 23.59 hrs. (GMT+7). Non-Thai travellers arriving in Thailand must have a fully vaccinated certificate or proof of recovery from COVID in the last months; or a vaccine-exemption letter from a doctor.

Passengers from countries that have requirements that may prevent passengers from going back due to Covid-19 shall be required to have health insurance covering at least USD 10,000 for treatment of Covid-19. Those with business arrangements, including flight crew, and students, may have a letter from the host or other form of insurance to cover such needs.

Holders of official and diplomatic passports, United Nations Laissez-passer, are exempted from health insurance requirements. Holders of Thai passports and transit/transfer passengers are exempted from vaccination checks and health insurance requirements.

The airlines must check the documents as required as per the new guidelines. If a passenger fails to meet the entrance requirements (with all documentation), they may have to undergo a test at the port of arrival. The airlines must adhere to regulations and comply with the guidance as appropriate, such as asking passengers to always wear masks except during meals or emergencies.
