    Special Groups of Foreigners Can Now Enter Thailand

    Business operators can proceed to bring in foreign visitors under Phase 6 of the easing of lockdown measures when they are ready, said the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CSSA).

    CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin said the CCSA has approved in principle the entry of four groups of foreign nationals and these visitors can resume their visits when local business operators have put in place disease control measures.

    The entry is granted to foreign business representatives, specialists, diplomats, migrant workers, exhibitors, film crews, medical tourists and Thailand Elite card members. One requirement is that they are required to stay in “organisational quarantine” facilities and such facilities must meet disease control standards.

    “If they want to resume their visits, those concerned must have organisational quarantine centres ready. We don’t have to say this easing will start on 1st August. These groups of foreign visitors can resume the visits when the local operators are ready,” he said.

    The CCSA on Friday reported six new cases of coronavirus disease infection among returnees from Egypt and the Netherlands, raising the total to 3,310.

    Dr Visanuyothin said five of the new patients had returned from Egypt. Four were male students, two aged 21 years and two aged 24.

    The four arrived on 24th July and were quarantined in Chon Buri province. They tested positive on Wednesday while being asymptomatic.

    The other returnee from Egypt was a male aged 28. He arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport on Thursday with a fever and breathing problems. He tested positive right away and was sent to a hospital in Chachoengsao province.

    The returnee from the Netherlands was a 52-year-old male chef who worked on a ship. He arrived last Saturday and was quarantined in Samut Prakan. He tested positive on Wednesday.

    Dr Visanuyothin also warned that with rising COVID-19 infection rates overseas, Thailand could not expect to remain permanently free of new local community infections. Authorities could only hope to prolong the infection-free period as long as possible, and then cope with any outbreak as it occurs.

    If you don't know then you are not part of the ELITE.

    It is the Top Knob Club

    I was under the impression those who had Thai provable family members were include, am i wrong?

    While Thailand still puts in place travel restriction, spouse or child or parent of a Thai national can apply for the Certificate of Entry to go to Thailand.

    Required documents, which must be submitted by email to :

    1. Your passport copy and your spouse's or child’s or your parent's passport copy
    2. A copy of your Thai visa (if already expired, you have to apply for a new one)
    3. Copy of marriage certificate or birth certificate
    4. Copy of health insurance policy which covers COVID related medical treatment and coverage of no less than 100,000 USD
    5. A copy of a hotel booking for Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) at one of the hotels approved by the Thai authorities
    6. Other supporting documents (if any), such as if you own a property in Thailand
    7. Declaration form, duly completed and signed

    What you need to present at airlines check-in counter and upon arrival in Thailand:

    1. The Certificate of Entry
    2. Declaration form
    3. Fit to Fly health certificate (within 72 hours before departure)
    4. Medical certificate with a laboratory result indicating that COVID -19 is not detected (COVID test must be by RT-PCR method), issued within 72 hours before departure
    5. Copy of your insurance policy which covers COVID and no less than 100,000 USD
    6. Copy of your confirmed booking at an ASQ hotel
