Current Entry Fees & Quarantine

UPDATE: Exciting Thailand Entry Update - Quarantine On Arrival Removed For Vaccinated Travelers From 10 Countries!

Vaccinated travelers coming from USA, UK, China, Germany, and Singapore (and 5 other countries which have not yet been announced at the time of this post) are now no longer required to quarantine upon arrival in Thailand. A negative COVID test is required before the flight and upon arrival, and once results come back from that test, the individual is free to move around the country.

This is huge news, and it seems that Thailand is intent on expanding upon this list of countries over time to make entry more accessible.

Thus, as of now, teachers coming from the above-listed countries do not have to worry about quarantine costs upon arrival, and any coming from other locations only need to quarantine for 7 days (and may be eligible for the Phuket Sandbox 'quarantine' in which you can move freely about the island during your quarantine time).

For those not from one of the 10 countries:

Currently Thailand has 2 arrival and quarantine options available. The Phuket Sandbox model allows for you to do your "quarantine" on Phuket island where you can freely go about the island and aren't confined to your hotel. The second option is to fly directly to Bangkok and do your quarantine in a hotel. The current quarantine period is 7 days.

Quarantine option 1: Phuket Sandbox

There are many approved hotels to choose from with prices as low as $100 - $200 for all 7 days.
