Visiting Thailand? Here’s Thailand Entry Requirements You Need to Know (Updated August 2022)

Thailand Entry Requirements

As countries around the world continues to relax the travel restrictions, Thailand has recently updated the Kingdom’s latest travel guideline. Many soon-to-be Thailand Elite members are asking on our website about Thailand’s current travel restrictions. The good news is that there are no longer any complex restrictions in place! Here is the latest on travelling to Thailand as of July 30, 2022 (updated August 2022).

Quick notes:
– You no longer need to apply for a Thailand Pass. The Thailand Pass registration is no longer required since July 1, 2022.

Ready to fly?
Here are the docs you’ll need to have ready:

  • – Passport
  • – Visa (if needed)
  • – Flight Itinerary
  • – Travel Insurance
  • – Hotel Booking Confirmation
  • – Vaccination Record (for Vaccinated Travellers)
  • – COVID-19 Test Result (for non-vaccinated travellers)
  • – Passport validity of at least 6 months

1. Visa-Free Entry

Did you know there are 64 countries that are eligible for Thailand visa-free entry? For Nationals under this list, you’re free to enter under the Visa Exemption program and the Bilateral Agreement. The duration of stay for visa-free entry depends on your nationality, ranging from 14 days, 30 days, to 90 days.

On the other hand, there are 19 countries that are eligible to enter Thailand under the Visa On Arrival programme. Under this programme, travelers are required to fill out the TM88 Visa on Arrival form and a fee of 2,000 THB upon airport arrival.

They are allowed up to 15 days stay duration in Thailand.

For visitors from countries outside these two programmes, they are required to apply for a Thai visa through an online application or in-person at the Thai Embassy or consulate nearest to their residence.

2. Vaccinated or COVID-19 Test

While there are no restrictions in place, visitors to Thailand can roam freely as long as they can show proof of vaccination or pre-departure COVID test. Fully vaccinated visitors are required to either print out or show a digital copy of their proof of vaccination.


Non-vaccinated travelers, it is mandatory for a pre-departure COVID test within 72 hours with an RT-PCT test or a professional ATK (RAT) antigen test, with test results showing negative/non-reactive. LINK

Unvaccinated Children must undergo a pre-departure COVID-testing while traveling with an unvaccinated adult.
