Today, Thailand’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration – or CCSA – announced the official reopening of nightlife venues in both “green” and “blue” zones across the kingdom.

The CCSA has cancelled Thailand Pass for Thai nationals, who may freely enter Thailand with just their passports from June 1.

Foreigners are still required to download Thailand Pass prior to entering Thailand, but the CCSA announced today that they have “streamlined” the Thailand Pass for foreigners, with the changes commencing on June 1.

Thailand Pass requirements (vaccinated travellers)

  • Vaccine certificate
  • Covid-19 Insurance covering at least 10,000 USD
  • Passport

Thailand Pass requirements (unvaccinated travellers)

  • Negative PCR or Pro-ATK test result taken 72 hours prior to entering Thailand OR on arrival ATK test
  • Covid-19 Insurance covering at least 10,000 USD
  • Passport

Nothing will change for vaccinated travellers entering Thailand from June 1. Unvaccinated travellers may, but will no longer be required to provide a negative PCR test result prior to entering the kingdom. Instead, they may now simply upload evidence of a negative Pro-ATK test to Thailand Pass prior to arrival OR simply take an ATK test kit upon arrival in Thailand.


The CCSA announced the emergency decree will also be extended by 2 months until the end of July.
