(03 Apr, 2021)Vaccination against Covid-19 reduces quarantine to 7 days
Travelers vaccinated with Covid-19 will have a reduced quarantine period of 7 days after entering Thailand. The new quarantine period will be effective from April 1st in Phuket, Krabi, Panunga, Chiang Mai and Pattaya.
Unvaccinated people need 10 days of quarantine. Isolation of countries with mutant strains of the virus (mainly African countries) remains for 14 days.
You must be vaccinated with a vaccine approved by WHO or the Ministry of Public Health. Depending on the type of vaccine, it is necessary to take it once or twice.
The following vaccines have been approved:
-AZD1222 by AstraZeneca/Oxford University (2 doses)
-ARS-CoV-2 (CoronaVac) by Sinovac (2 doses)
-NT162b2/CORMIRNATY – Tozinameran by Pfizer/BioNTech (2 doses)
-Covishield (ChAdOx1_nCoV19) by the Serum Institute of India (2 doses)
-Ad26.COV2.S by the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson (1 dose)
-mRNA-1273 by Moderna (2 doses)
What you need when entering Thailand:
-Vaccine certificate, either a print out or the original document (Only for vaccinated travellers)
-Certificate of Entry issued by the Royal Thai Embassy
-Covid-19 health insurance with a minimum coverage of $100,000 USD
-Booking confirmation for an Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) hotel
-Negative Covid-19 test issued no more than 72 hours before departure
Shortening the quarantine period is the first step in the four steps of Thailand's reopen border plan. Starting July 1, foreign tourists vaccinated against Covid-19 as a second step will be able to travel to Phuket without quarantine.
In the third step, set on October 1, vaccinated travelers arriving in Phuket, Krabi, Phang Nga, Chiang Mai and Pattaya from abroad will be exempt from quarantine.
From January 1, 2022, all travelers vaccinated against Covid-19 will be completely exempt from quarantine in Thailand.
(04 Apr, 2021)Vaccination Certificates - Registration starts on May 1st
Those who wish to travel abroad after being vaccinated against COVID-19 in Thailand will receive an International Health Certificate, but must register for vaccination.
According to Pongsadhorn Pokpermdee, adviser of the Ministry of Public Health, the Ministry of Public Health will issue such a certificate once the WHO releases a standard form which is scheduled to release in June.
On May 1st, people could book a reservation for a domestic AstraZeneca jab at one of the more than 12,000 hospitals nationwide through an app still under development. This service allows you to book an inoculation, remind the second dose, and report subsequent side effects.
Thailand's late vaccination program lags behind neighboring countries, and the 61 million AstraZeneca doses manufactured by the Crown Property Bureau’s Siam Bioscience will not be available until June. So far, Thailand has 1 million Chinese CoronaVac and 100,000 AstraZeneca imported for emergency use.
(10 Apr, 2021)Private hospital in Thailand receives 10 million Covid-19 vaccines
In addition to the government-booked 70 million Covid-19 vaccine doses, Thai private hospitals can obtain an additional 10 million doses. Additional vaccines are needed to reach the herd's immunity to the coronavirus.
The AstraZeneca and Shinovac vaccines are currently used in government vaccination campaigns and must be effective in two doses. The government-procured 70 million doses cover 35 million people, but in Thailand at least 40 million people need to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity. An additional 10 million doses managed by a private hospital will cover an additional 5 million people. Private hospitals can choose which vaccine they want to receive.
A spokesman for the Covid-19 Situation Management Center says PM Prayut Chan-o-cha approved the decision on April 9 after a meeting between the Ministry of Public Health and the Private Hospital Association.
So far, the AstraZeneca, Shinovac and Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccines have been approved for private purchase by the Thai Food and Drug Administration, according to deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Natapanu Nopakun.
