During this year we had to face many problems due to the current worldwide pandemic. Travel has been especially affected, with restrictions and travel bans being set all around the world. Thailand is one of many countries that have begun to implement a new set of restrictions in order to minimize the spread of the Covid-19 virus. These restrictions and requirements apply to all people who are traveling to Thailand although travel has been halted until the 30th of April.
The first of these new changes that have been made regarding travel include a classification of travelers according to the country which they come from. The categories have been separated into people from Disease infected zones, people from countries with ongoing transmission, and other. As for those who are traveling, upon arrival, you will have to go through a health check-up as a preventative method and for those from disease infected zones, you will be required to self-quarantine for the allotted time.
When it comes to French citizens traveling the rules are not any different. Currently, a French citizen does not require a visa to travel to Thailand as they can stay a total of 30 days without one. However, another one of the measures that the Thailand government has placed has been to include the need for a health certificate by the name of the Thailand T.8 form. This form is required by all travelers wishing to enter the country. Said form must be completed via the Airports of Thailand application (AOT) or on paper and submitted to the disease control officials upon arrival.
