Thailand, one of the top tourist destinations for Indians, has further eased travel norms for international arrivals. Starting July 1, the country is doing away with its Thailand pass registration scheme requirement and the mandatory US$10,000 health insurance for foreign visitors.
What were the old rules that were being removed?
International visitors arriving in Thailand must register alone for a Thailand pass with a certificate of Covid-19 vaccination and a medical health insurance policy. However, these rules are being made away with.
According to a statement by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, from July 1, foreign nationals are required to show proof of either a certificate of vaccination or a negative RT-PCR or professional ATK test (antigen test) result in something like 72 hours of travel. These can be in print or digital format.
