Just a quick sharing of the Entry Requirements for Malaysians into Thailand effective 1 July 2022. There are enquiries of the entry requirements for this month and hence I will do a quick update on this topic and please read carefully.

This information has been updated on 24 June, 2022 by Thailand.

Thailand Pass removed and also lifting an US$10,000 health insurance requirement, thus welcoming all travellers with proof of either a certificate of vaccination or a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test result.

The following rules will be in effect from 1 July, 2022, with specific requirements for vaccinated and unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers from all countries/territories with scheduled arrivals from this date.

Pre-arrival requirements

Vaccinated travellers must have the following documents for entering Thailand:

  • A valid passport, or a border pass for arrivals via border checkpoints.
  • A Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination
    • Everyone 18 years of age and older must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 with an approved vaccine at least 14 days before travelling to Thailand.
    • Travellers 5-17 years of age travelling to Thailand unaccompanied must get vaccinated with at least 1 dose of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before travelling to Thailand. Those travelling with parents are exempt from this requirement.

Unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers must have the following documents for entering Thailand:

  • A valid passport, or a border pass for arrivals via border checkpoints.

On Arrival Requirements

Upon arriving in Thailand, all travellers must undergo entry screening including body temperature check, and present the required documents to the Immigration/Health Control officer to carry out the checks.

The vaccinated travellers will then be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom. *For arrivals by land using a border pass, they will be allowed a stay of no longer than 3 days within the specified areas only.

Likewise, unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers who have proof of a negative result from an RT-PCR test or professional ATK within 72 hours of travel will be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom.

The unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers without a negative test result within 72 hours of travel are required to follow the public health instructions and guidelines as deemed appropriate by the Health Control officer at the point of arrival. All expenses incurred will be the responsibility of the travellers.

During the Stay

While in Thailand, both vaccinated and unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated travellers are advised to strictly follow the health and safety standards. Travellers who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms should get tested. If testing positive, they must get the appropriate medical treatment.

For incoming foreign travellers with scheduled arrivals before 1 July, 2022, the following pre-arrival rules apply:

Entry Requirements for Malaysians into Thailand effective 1 July 2022 is similar to pre-COVID era. No more Thailand Pass and no more COVID insurance for flight or land border!

No matter how relax the rules, we always advised travellers to purchase travel insurance, your own medicines and wear masks all the time if possible. COVID is still around and I have family and friends infected this week alone.
