Thailand Increased Quarantine Period back to 14 days!
For both foreigners and Thai travelers arriving to Thailand the mandatory quarantine period has been increased from 7 days or 10 days to 14 days starting from 1 May 2021 in order to reduce the risk of local transmission of new COVID-19 variants in Thailand.
Important Note! The changes were announced by the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) after the meeting on 29 April 2021.
The 14-day quarantine period was recommended after the World Health Organization and some experts estimated the incubation period for COVID-19. That’s why since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, all travelers coming to Thailand are required to undergo a 14-day quarantine at government-approved facility. The actual stay at Alternative State Quarantine hotel will be 14 nights or 15 nights, depending on the time of your landing in Thailand (14 nights if your flight arrival time 00:01-18:00, 15 nights if your flight arrival time after 18:00).
No more Quarantine for 10 days or 7 days
Several countries including Thailand have reviewed their mandatory quarantine periods and reduced them from the original 14 days. Thailand has made it easier for international travelers to enter the country starting from 1 April 2021 after the starting of a vaccination campaign against the coronavirus. Travelers were able to shorten their mandatory quarantine period from two weeks to 10 or even 7 days, subject to a certificate of vaccination or so called “vaccine passport”.
However, the quarantine measure has been again tightened and 7-day and 10-day quarantine have been revoked to prevent the spread of COVID-19 after Thailand started to register the highest new daily rates of COVID-19 cases during April 2021.
