The Government of Thailand now requires all arriving international passengers to provide written evidence that they have been tested for and found clear of Covid-19 virus infection.

Effective from Sunday 22 March, local time, by directive of the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand, all non-Thai nationals intending to travel to Thailand must produce at the departure airport a health certificate which states that the passenger has been tested for Covid-19 virus within the prior 72 hours and cleared of infection.

The intending passenger must also produce evidence of a health insurance policy which provides coverage of at least USD $100,000 in case of Covid-19 infection in Thailand.  Without either document, intending passengers cannot board their flights.

Thai nationals returning to the country require a ‘Fit to Fly’ health certificate and letter issued by the Thai Embassy or Thai Consular Office at the destination from which they are returning, or by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
