Thailand has always been a popular destination for Iranian citizens, especially for medical tourists, that is, for those looking for medical treatment. Given the Iranian immigration to Thailand a few centuries ago, a vast quantity of Iranian culture is concentrated in the country. As a matter of fact, there is an Iranian Cultural Center in Bangkok that provides Persian language classes and facilitates translations of works and texts from Iranian to the Thai language.
In these times of uncertainty, it's hard to think that tourism is the main concern, but the Thai government believes otherwise. Hence, as a measure to impulse tourism and stop the spread of the COVID-19, Thai officers have implemented the Thailand Health Declaration (T.8 Form) a document that helps you to enter and visit Thailand safely.
