Visa Exemption Rule – 56 countries to enter Thailand without a visa

Thailand has suspended all Tourist Visa Exemption Schemes with all countries as a measure to control the number of COVID-19 imported cases since the onset of COVID-19.

To increase the number of tourists, the government lifted the suspension in early December 2020. Passport holders from 56 countries/territories can visit Thailand for up to 45 days under the Tourist Visa Exemption Scheme.
