Event

Authorities will further ease various domestic and international travel restrictions related to COVID-19 from July 1. Authorities will no longer require international arrivals to obtain the Thailand Pass. Foreign nationals will no longer need to have insurance coverage for COVID-19 treatment. However, foreign citizens will still need to provide proof of a full vaccination certificate or a negative result from a professionally administered RT-PCR or ART test performed within 72 hours of travel.

The government will also move all provinces to the less strict green zones, which have no gathering or business restrictions, from July 1. However, organizers of gatherings involving more than 2,000 people must notify local disease control officials. All nighttime entertainment venues will be allowed to reopen, although pubs and clubs will only be allowed to serve alcohol until 02:00 every night. People will no longer be required to wear face masks outside, except in crowded places.

National measures
The national state of emergency remains in effect until July 31. Authorities continue to maintain the national COVID-19 alert at the third highest level of Level 3, under which authorities advise people to avoid visiting crowded places.

International Travel Restrictions
Several land border checkpoints with Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia and Myanmar are operational.

Tips

Follow all official instructions. Comply with national health and safety measures. Reconfirm all travel arrangements. Consider delaying your trip if you have symptoms associated with COVID-19, as they may lead to increased surveillance and delays. Reach out to trusted contacts for updates and additional guidance. Stay in contact with your diplomatic representation. Ensure that contingency plans take into account other disruptive measures or extensions of current restrictions. Reconsider and reconfirm non-emergency medical appointments.
