Latest entry regulations for foreign travelers to Southeast Asia

April is not just when many places on Earth thaw after winter and nature starts to burst into bloom, but also when some countries in Southeast Asia start to welcome international tourists again. Among all of them, Thailand, Vietnam and Bali have always been our top tourist havens, which lure visitors with their natural beauty as well as cultural diversity. These countries are ready for you to set off for another adventure by rolling back Covid-19 restrictions and easing regulations on entry for tourists as follows:

Thailand:

All travelers must have the following documents for entering Thailand:

-A Thailand Pass (via https://tp.consular.go.th/).
-COVID-19 Insurance with coverage no less than US$20,000.
-A proof of prepayment for 1 night of accommodation at government-approved hotel/s; such as, SHA Extra Plus (SHA++) on Day 1, which should also include the expenses for 2 COVID-19 tests: an RT-PCR test upon arrival (Day 0-1) and an antigen self-test on Day 5. 
-A Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination.
-Or a Certificate of COVID-19 Recovery.

After arrival, you need to go to the prearranged accommodation or medical facility to undergo the Day 1 RT-PCR test. Then, all travelers must wait for the test result within the hotel only. Travelers with negative test results are free to go anywhere in Thailand, but will be provided with 1 Antigen Self-Test Kit for a self-test on Day 5 and be required to report/record the result via the MorChana application or another specified application.

Vietnam: 

On May 13, 2022, Vietnam announced to temporarily ease the requirements on entry for foreign travelers. All visitors are not required to have a negative SARS-CoV-2 virus test result before entering Vietnam. After arrival, they also do not have to make a health declaration anymore. Vietnam is more than ready to welcome tourists back again.

Vietnam is always in the bucket-list of almost every traveler when they think about Asia

Bali, Indonesia:

On March 21, Indonesia lifted all quarantine requirements for FULLY VACCINATED international visitors, just days after 19 more countries have been added to the list of countries that can get a Visa on Arrival. So here are requirements upon arrival for foreign tourists who already got full vaccination:

-A proof (digital/ printed) of Covid Vaccination (the last dose must be taken 14 days before traveling to Indonesia).
-A negative PCR test result when you arrive. Test taken within 2x24h before your departure. Or a mandatory PCR test upon arrival, and then you must remain in your chosen accommodation, until you receive a negative test result.
-Travel insurance (covering covid related medical costs and evacuation expenses).
-Visa on Arrival or B211A Visit Visa, depending on traveler’s nationality (you can find the list here).

Laos:

Laos is reopening its borders for vaccinated travelers without any testing requirements. From May 09, all you need is a vaccination certificate to enter Laos. And if you are not fully vaccinated, a Rapid Antigen Test (ATK) at least 48 hours prior to departure is all required upon arrival.
