People wishing to take a flight in Thailand will need to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 72 hours before they are due to fly, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has confirmed.

‘Fully vaccinated’ is deemed as having received two doses of a vaccine approved for use in Thailand, with the exception of the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

For those who are not fully vaccinated, they will need to show a negative test result from either an ATK or PCR test no more than 72 hours before flying.

Anyone who feels sick or unwell is urged not to travel.

Airlines have been instructed to adjust ventilation systems and ensure that all screening measures are strictly observed. Any passenger who fails to pass the necessary screening, such as reporting a high temperature, could be refused boarding.
