Thailand to Relax Travel Restrictions Next Month

Thailand has announced that it will relax its entry requirements for foreign travelers once again. The changes will go into effect next month as the recent Omicron surge seems to have already peaked.

The Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has agreed to resume registration for the currently suspended quarantine-free entry program, known as ‘Test & Go‘, starting February 1, 2022. It will also allow eateries in “sandbox” provinces and COVID-19 “high surveillance” provinces to serve alcohol up to 11pm, instead of 9 pm, starting from January 24th.

The ‘Test & Go’ program was launched in November 2021 as Thailand’s vaccination rates increased and COVID-19 cases declined. But, in December 22, the quick spread of the new Omicron variant prompted Thai authorities to suspend the program.

The resumption of the program will be a bit more strict that its previous reiteration. Vaccinated foreign visitors (or those with a certificate of recent COVID-19 recovery) will need to have a negative pre-travel PCR test taken within 72 hours of their departure. They are also required to take two PCR tests upon arrival, instead of one, on the first and fifth days.  Tests and accommodations must be pre-booked.

All foreign visitors are required to download and install Thailand’s ‘MorChana’ COVID-tracking and reporting app, keeping it on at all times for updates on any preventive measures in effect at their destination. They also nee to use it to report their Day 5 test results.
