Before You Go

Fully-Vaccinated Travellers:

The Thailand Pass Test & Go application has reopened for 2022. Now fully vaccinated travellers may enter the country using the Test & Go program.

  • Fully vaccinated travellers will only need to stay for 1 night in a Quarantine or SHA Plus Hotel while they wait for the PCR COVID test result that was taken upon arrival. 
  • Fully vaccinated travellers must pre-book and show proof of their hotel accommodation booking.
  • Fully vaccinated travellers will have to do a self-administered rapid Antigen test on Day 5.
  • All travellers aged 18 or over must provide a certificate of second dose of a WHO-approved Covid-19 vaccination (recieved at least 14 days before travel to Thailand).
  • Travellers 12-17 years of age travelling to Thailand unaccompanied must get vaccinated with at least 1 dose of an approved vaccine. Those travelling with parents are exempt from this requirement. Travellers 6-11 years of age, travelling with parents, are also exempt from this requirement.
  • Travellers under 6 years of age, travelling with parents with a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours before travelling, are not required to have a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR test result and can have a saliva test when entering the Kingdom.
  • Must take a Covid-19 PCR test within 72 hours prior to travelling
Partially or Unvaccinated Travellers:
  • Travellers from all countries who are not fully vaccinated will be required to stay in an alternative quarantine hotel for 10 days, and upon a final negative test will be able to leave and continue travelling around the country freely.

All Travellers:

  • Must take a Covid-19 PCR test within 72 hours prior to travelling

When You Arrive

  • All travellers must undergo ‘entry screening’ including body temperature check at the point of entry.
  • Proceed to the prearranged accommodation or medical facility to undergo the RT-PCR test. All travellers must wait for the test result within the hotel only. Travellers under 6 years of age, travelling with parents, can have a saliva test.

During Your Charter

  • If you test positive for COVID-19 during your charter, please get in touch with your insurance provider for advice. According to the current regulations in place, you would be required to report to a hospital and it will be at the doctors discretion. Depending on the severity you may be required to be admitted for inpatient treatment, however there is usually the option to stay in an alternative quarantine hotel until a negative result is given. Unfortunately yacht quarantine is not possible for charters as this is done in designated alternative yacht quarantine areas reserved for vessels arriving from outside of Thailand. In an AQ hotel or hospital, they will retest and release you from quarantine after 10-14 days (the period can vary) following a negative result.
  • We are dedicated to giving you peace of mind when you charter with us. Our industry-leading safety measures include the fogging and disinfecting of all yachts before each charter begins.
