The Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration in Thailand (CCSA) has approved lifting the RTPCR testing requirement for international arrivals starting May 1, 2022. It also introduced two new entry systems tailored explicitly for vaccinated or unvaccinated travelers.
Once the Royal Thai Government Gazette announces the directives, TAT Newsroom will post updates on www.tatnews.org.
International travellers who have been fully vaccinated are no longer required to produce proof of a negative RT-PCR test or undergo a test on arrival.

Fully vaccinated travellers are still required to register for a Thailand Pass (via https://tp.consular.go.th/) with a Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination and an insurance policy with coverage no less than USD 10,000 (reduced from USD 20,000).
Upon arrival, they will be permitted entry to Thailand and can travel anywhere in the Kingdom.
International travellers who have not been vaccinated or aren’t fully vaccinated are no longer required to submit a pre-arrival negative RTPCR test and will not be subject to an arrival test.
They will need to register for the Thailand Pass, which includes a 5-day booking at a hotel and an insurance policy covering no less than USD 10,000 (reduced from USD 20,000).

After arriving in Thailand, they have to undergo a quarantine period of five days. On Day 5, they will have to undergo an RT-PCR test.
Unvaccinated travellers who can upload proof of a negative RTPCR test within 72 hours of their travel via the Thailand Pass system will be granted an exception.
Like fully vaccinated travellers, they will be permitted entry to the Kingdom and allowed to go anywhere they wish.
Both vaccinated and non-vaccinated travellers must adhere to safety and health standards while in Thailand.
Travellers who experience COVID-like symptoms should get tested. They must seek medical attention if they are positive.
