Thailand to Reopen Its Borders to Travellers

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha’s cabinet on 15 September 2020, approved a special tourist visa for long-stay visitors. This visa will allow them to stay in Thailand for 90 days. It can be renewed twice, for 90 days each time. The special tourist visa will cost 2,000 baht.

The tourists will undergo a mandatory 14-day state quarantine on arrival at partner hotels or hospitals. All foreigners entering the country will need to buy Covid-19 insurance. In addition to having insurance cover, travellers need to provide the nearest Thai embassy with a Fit to Fly Health Certificate and a negative swab test valid within 72 hours of the flight departing for Thailand. 

Long-stay visitors wanting to stay in Thailand are required to show evidence of their payment for hotels they will stay, or condominium rooms, after the quarantine. They must agree to comply with measures set by the Ministry of Public Health of Thailand.
