On Arrival Requirements:
All travelers must undergo entry screening, including a body temperature check, and present the necessary documents to the Immigration/Health Control officer conducting the checks upon arrival in Thailand.


The travelers who have been immunized will then be permitted entry and are free to travel anywhere in the kingdom. For land arrivals using a border pass, a maximum three-day stay is permitted only within the specified areas.

Similarly, unvaccinated/incompletely vaccinated travelers with proof of a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test result within 72 hours of travel will be permitted entry and are free to travel anywhere in the kingdom.
