The government of Thailand has announced that it will relax testing requirements from Sunday 1 May, with fully vaccinated travellers entering the country no longer required to take pre-departure or on-arrival tests.
The requirement for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travellers to provide an on-arrival test result has also been dropped. However, the mandatory five-day quarantine and fifth-day PCR test remains in force. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travellers can reduce their period in quarantine if they submit a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival in Thailand.
All travellers, regardless of vaccination status, will also still be required to register for a Thailand Pass and upload proof of vaccination and sufficient travel insurance. Unvaccinated travellers must also upload proof of a five-day hotel booking for the duration of their quarantine.
Greece and Switzerland drop remaining Covid restrictions from next week
In addition, both Greece and Switzerland have announced that they will remove all remaining coronavirus restrictions from Monday 2 May.
From next week, all travellers to Greece, regardless of vaccination status, will no longer be required to present evidence of vaccination, recent recovery, or a test certificate upon their arrival in the country.
The Greek government previously announced the removal of Covid testing requirements for vaccinated travellers in early February.
Swiss authorities will also enable all travellers, regardless of entry, to visit the country without providing proof of vaccination, recovery or testing from 2 May, regardless of country of origin or vaccine status.
Swiss authorities have confirmed that from next week, incoming travellers will only have to abide by standard travel rules, such as being required to hold a valid passport or visa.
