• Great news!! As of June 2024, Thailand has updated its visa regulations. See below.

  • Travelers entering Thailand are not required to show Proof of Vaccination or COVID-19 test results. All travelers can freely travel to Thailand without any COVID restriction.
  • Travelers are not required to obtain Thailand Pass or Certificate of Entry (COE). There is no need to download any mobile app.
  • Travel Insurance is still highly recommended when you travel to Thailand.
  • South Africans with a return air ticket DO NOT need to get a visa before departing. All tourists arriving by air will be given a 30-day visa.
  • DO NOT go to the visa-on-arrival (VOA) counter. It is for a few other countries - not South Africans.
