Test & Go: Travel To Thailand Without Quarantine

Thailand Test and Go

The Test and Go program is for travelers who will not be quarantined; you will just need to be tested upon arrival at your booked accommodation and may go if the result is negative.

If you are the following, you are eligible for quarantine-free travel to Thailand:

    1.     A fully vaccinated traveler,
    2.     Traveling by air, and
    3.     From the approved countries.

There is no requirement to stay at a certain hotel for 7, 10, or 14 days. You just need one day to stay in a hotel and take the COVID-19 exam. If you get a negative result from the RT-PCR COVID-19 test, you are free to travel across Thailand.

Beginning November 1, Thailand will enable fully vaccinated tourists flying from low-risk and only approved countries to go quarantine-free. This schema is called Test and Go.

If you are not from one of the countries mentioned above, you may still visit Thailand; however, you will be subject to mandatory quarantine upon arrival.
