Having earned its reputation as one of the strictest destinations in Southeast Asia after enacting some of the harshest border regimes during Covid, Thailand is finally easing travel rules once again. Having already reopened for tourism, the country is now planning to allow vaccinated tourists to enter requirement-free as soon as May 1, 2022.

Currently, Thailand has a trio of entry programs in place. While unvaccinated tourists must apply for an exemption to the entry ban and undergo state-observed quarantine upon arriving, those who are vaccinated can apply for the facilitated Test & Go or Sandbox schemes.

While the country has already released a timeline for the easing for restrictions and vaccinated foreigners have usually been granted entry, they must still apply for a Thailand Pass under one of the schemes above, while satisfying a number of other border requirements.
