The weekend is rapidly approaching, and many kid-friendly options are now available in the City of Angels. But first for tourists, lets take a quick look at how current restrictions look in 2022.
What are the Entry Restrictions?
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are facing, traveling won’t be the same anymore and will require more effort and patience.
Before going to Thailand, make sure your family is up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccines because from May 1, fully vaccinated individuals will no longer require pre-arrival or arrival negative RT-PCR test. However, all travelers will be required to register for Thailand Pass prior to the journey and proof of insurance policy that covers treatment for COVID-19 for no less than US$10,000.
With the following requirement met, they will be granted admission and will be free to travel across the country. However, for unvaccinated individuals, five-day quarantine is required before traveling to Thailand.
Also, don’t forget! Masks are expected to be worn in public, both indoors and outdoors. Those who don’t wear masks face fines.
