    Starting on May 1, Thailand revised its current entry programs for tourists, adopting new rules that differ for vaccinated and unvaccinated tourists. People who have been vaccinated need to apply for a Thai pass. For this, they need to enter a vaccination certificate and insurance data into the system. At the same time, PCR tests are not required either before or during the trip, as is any quarantine. Unvaccinated tourists also need insurance.

    Those who did not take a PCR test before departure need to go through a 5-day quarantine, having booked it in advance when applying for a Thailand Pass. Alternatively, they may upload a ready-made negative result of a PCR test carried out 72 hours before departure, in which case quarantine is not required. Booking a hotel five days in advance is also not necessary then.


    President of Indonesia Joko Widodo recently announced that travelers will no longer be required to provide their negative PCR tests from May 18enter the country. However, for unvaccinated tourists, the rules remain strict: it will be necessary to undergo a five-day quarantine and pass two PCR tests.


    Similar rules to Vietnam took effect in Malaysia on May 1. Vaccinated tourists over 12 years of age and children under this age are exempt from all PCR tests. Partially vaccinated and unvaccinated tourists must present a negative PCR test taken two days before boarding the flight, retake the test within 24 hours of arrival, and also undergo a mandatory five-day quarantine, though.
