International arrivals to Thailand under the TEST & GO, Sandbox, and Alternative Quarantine schemes will be able to enter without a pre-travel PCR test from April 1.
This move is part of the Thai government’s four-phase plan to downgrade the Covid-19 pandemic to an endemic disease.
Travellers entering on the TEST & GO and Sandbox schemes will still have to take a PCR test on arrival and an antigen self-test on their fifth day in Thailand.
As part of the relaxed entry requirements, Sandbox travellers will only need to remain in Sandbox destinations for five days instead of seven before they are allowed to travel domestically within Thailand.
For travellers entering on the Alternative Quarantine scheme, quarantine duration is reduced to five days plus a PCR test on the fourth or fifth day of stay.
