As a precaution against spreading COVID-19, offenders are liable to a fine up to 20,000 Baht.

A number of provinces across Thailand have been issuing orders to impose fines on those not wearing masks in public places amid the nationwide effort to contain the new wave of COVID-19 infections.



TAT would like to remind all that mask wearing is taken seriously in Thailand, even in provinces that have yet to make it compulsory. Face masks should be worn at all times for both your personal safety and for those around you.

According to the Ministry of Interior, a fine up to 20,000 Baht will be imposed on those for not wearing masks in both indoor and outdoor public spaces in the following provinces. Please note that this is a living document, which the TAT Newsroom will update as new information becomes available.
