Thailand’s Traveler Restrictions Set to Roll Back 1st July
The wait is over for Thailand’s battered hotel and tourism sectors, with an announcement by the government that the cumbersome Thailand Pass process will be removed by 1st July.
Travelers to the Kingdom will no longer be subjected to the online application and approval process.
Another restriction for tourists is the Covid-19 USD10,000 insurance requirement, which will also be lifted.
For overseas arrivals, all that is needed is a vaccination certificate or Covid-19 testing result and no certificate of entry will be mandated.
In another separate issue, the current requirement of wearing a mask outdoors and in open spaces is expected to also be lifted at the beginning of July, subject to a Royal Gazette notification.
