Thailand is one of the most visited travel destinations in Asia because of its mix of serene beaches, world-famous cuisine, and rich culture. Bangkok, in particular, offers much to be explored. Read on for your ultimate guide to visiting Bangkok in the new normal!
Travel Guidelines and Requirements
All visitors to Thailand must have an approved Thailand Pass, an all-in-one place where you can upload your travel information. Learn more about the Thailand Pass in this video from the Thai Embassy:
It only takes as little as one hour to get approved if you have all your requirements ready. As of May 2022, the required documents for entry are:
- Philippine passport
- Flight itinerary (to confirm arrival date)
- Certificate of full vaccination (2 doses)
- Proof of COVID-19 Insurance policy (10,000USD minimum coverage)
Unvaccinated travelers still have to apply for the Thailand Pass with the additional requirement of booking an Alternate Quarantine hotel for five nights. However, you can avoid the quarantine period by presenting an RT-PCR test result that is no older than 72 hours before your departure date. Here is a hassle-free package to make sure that you are fit to fly!
As long as you can complete all these travel requirements, Philippine passport holders can stay in Thailand for up to 30 days without a visa!
