Thailand to reduce quarantine period for unvaccinated travelers to 5 days
Currently, if an unvaccinated person enters Thailand, a 10-day quarantine is required at a designated AQ hotel (alternative quarantine facility). This quarantine obligation is a major hurdle to entering Thailand for those who cannot be vaccinated for a variety of reasons.

This quarantine period may be shortened from April 1st.

The Thai government has proposed to shorten the compulsory quarantine period for unvaccinated entering Thailand to 5 days from April 1st. It has already been announced that vaccinated travelers will no longer need to undergo pre-departure PCR testing from April 1, but unvaccinated travelers might not also need to undergo pre-departure PCR testing either.

This new proposal is already public information, but is pending final decision. After the proposal is approved, it will be officially announced at the end of March.

Under the new proposal, unvaccinated travelers will be quarantined at designated AQ hotels for 5 days and will be free if the result of PCR test is negative at the end of the quarantine.

Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand are easing entry restrictions one after another, and further easing is expected in the near future. Thailand plans to remove all entry restrictions on June 1st.

There are reports that watering during Songkran in April may be banned this year as well, but the day will come very soon when the Thai pandemic will become an endemic. We hope Thailand will return to its pre-pandemic state as soon as possible.

Travelers entering Thailand will still need to apply for and obtain a Thailand Pass issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand.

It is the the first time that "Wanrai" has been permitted since 2019. However, since watering events wil be prohibited, details of how to spend "Wanrai" will need to be decided in the future.

Pattaya have been banned watering events in Songkran for the third consecutive year.

The Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand calls for the removal of all entry restrictions for vaccinated travelers by June 1.
The Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand is currently planning to abolish all restrictions on entry into Thailand by June 1. The ministry's schedule plans to gradually remove regulations by June 1. The specific schedule is as follows. (Requires approval by CCSA)

April 1-Travelers entering Thailand with the Test & Go and Sandbox schemes no longer need a PCR test in the country of departure. (CCSA announced this on March 18, but this decision has not yet been finalized.)

May 1-The PCR test on arrival will be changed to an antigen test (ATK test) with results within minutes, eliminating the need for hotel quarantine on the first day of arrival.

June 1-Removal of all entry restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers.

This draft schedule has been drafted by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand, but will need to be approved by CCSA in near future.

The requirement to change the PCR test when entering Thailand from May 1st to the ATK test is that the number of newly infected persons during this year's Songkran vacation period (April 13th to 15th) is stable. By changing the PCR test when entering Thailand to the ATK test, the time to wait for the test result will be several minutes, so travelers will not need to make a hotel reservation to wait for the PCR test result on the first day of arrival, and for travelers It will be a big attraction.

Since the pandemic, the Thai tourism industry, which has lost foreign tourists, has been severely damaged. Currently, restrictions on entry are gradually lifted, and if all restrictions are lifted on June 1, it's expected that it will be possible to invite huge number of foreign tourists to Thailand again.
