Schemes for Entering Thailand

Effective from 1 November, 2021

  1. Test and Go
  2. Sandbox Program
  3. Alternative Quarantine

TEST AND GO  – for fully vaccinated travelers from the eligible countries

Fully vaccinated travelers, both Thai and foreigners will be allowed to enter Thailand without quarantine or sandbox stay. They only need to stay for 1 night in an ASQ or SHA+ Hotel while they wait for the COVID 19 RT-PCR test result that was taken upon arrival.  The quarantine-free program is initially available for low-risk countries, and currently, there are 46 countries on the list. You must have stayed in these countries for at least 21 days before traveling to Thailand (except for those who traveled from Thailand).  Unvaccinated children below 12 years old may travel with vaccinated parents without quarantine.

SANDBOX PROGRAM – for fully vaccinated travelers (for all countries)
Fully vaccinated travelers who are coming from non-listed countries are eligible to enter Thailand without quarantine. They must enter Thailand under the Sandbox Programs such as Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Phuket or Samui Sandbox. They are required to spend 7 nights in an accredited SHA+ Hotel in these Sandbox areas before they will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand. Unvaccinated children below 18 years old may travel with vaccinated parents without quarantine.

QUARANTINE PROGRAM – for non-vaccinated travelers
Non-vaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers are still allowed to travel to Thailand. They must undergo a mandatory quarantine of 10 nights in an accredited ASQ or AQ quarantine hotel before they will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand.
