[Updated Jan 2023] Your complete post-COVID Thailand travel guide. Learn how to go to Bangkok from Singapore, including whether the proof of vaccination is needed etc.

What are the travel requirements to enter Bangkok Thailand from Singapore?

In a turn of events, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has overturned a requirement for foreign arrivals (excluding Thai nationals and passengers on transit) to prove that they are vaccinated announced on 8 January 2023.

In short, travellers are not required produce proof of vaccination nor undergo any pre-arrival and post-arrival COVID testing when traveling to Thailand despite the new updates. You can still visit Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai or anywhere in Thailand just like before the pandemic. Also, selected nationals including Singapore Citizens who currently enjoy 30-day visa exemption will get an extension to 45 days until 31 March 2023. Hooray!

You will just need to prepare the following if you are travelling to Thailand:  

  • A valid passport
  • A visa (if required, not required for Singaporeans traveling by air)

or show proof of vaccination or ATK (ART) test results

Options for Travel Insurance to Bangkok

To better protect yourself and insure yourself and your family against any unforeseen circumstances, you may purchase a travel insurance before entering Thailand, though it is no longer a requirement.

These are the travel insurance previously recommended by Thailand Pass:

  • AXA – From THB 1567 for THB 750,000 medical coverage over 7 days (include loss baggage, flight delay, travel delay, quarantine hotel accommodation)
  • MSIG – From THB 1100 for THB 800,000 medical coverage over 15 days
  • FWD – From THB 650 or THB 700,000 medical coverage over 30 days
