Covid Update – Reimplementation of Test & Go

The Thai Government reinstated the Test & Go quarantine free entry scheme starting 1 February 2022. The scheme has been slightly modified in comparison to the previous version. 

Test & Go requirements and procedure

Now, fully vaccinated travellers are required to take a PCR-Test upon arrival and remain in hotel quarantine until the test result is received.
Afterwards, the arrivals are free to explore Thailand. However, on the fifth day after entry, all travellers are required to take another PCR-Test and must wait in hotel quarantine for the test result. The hotel doesn’t need to be the same as the first one. 
In general, entry under Test & Go requires an approved Thailand Pass, a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours before travels, an insurance policy with a coverage for Covid-19 of at least USD 50,000, evidence of an approved hotel on day 1 and 5, including expenses for two RT-PCR tests, as well as proof of vaccination or recovery.

Still available: The Sandbox Scheme

Alternatively, travellers can enter Thailand under the Sandbox scheme. People arriving under the Sandbox scheme take a PCR-Test upon arrival and are free to explore the defined Sandbox area once they receive their negative PCR-Test result. However, they need to remain within a certain region, for example Phuket. After 7 days and a second negative PCR-Test, they may travel onwards. Only vaccinated people are eligible for the sandbox program. The aforementioned general travel requirements similarly apply to the Sandbox scheme.
