2020 has been a year in which we as a society have had to face many problems due to the current pandemic we know as the Coronavirus, also known as Covid-19. One aspect of our lives that seems to have taken the brunt of this global issue is travel, what with different rules and travel bans being implemented everywhere. One of the many countries that has taken to applying new guidelines, is Thailand. These regulations and requirements are the same for all people who wish to travel to this country, however this is something that will not be possible until the end of this month (04/30)
Among these new regulations, the Thailand government has decided to classify travelers into three groups according to the country they are coming from. These categories are for people from disease infected zones, people from countries with ongoing transmission and other. For all travelers, and especially for those from disease infected zones, you are required to do self-quarantine upon arrival for the allotted time stipulated.
Regarding travel for Spanish citizens, the rules are quite the same. Spaniards can stay for a total of 30 days in Thailand without the need for a visa, although a new requirement has been set in place by the Thai government which is to present a health certificate: the Thailand T.8 form. This document is a must for all people who plan on traveling to this country. The aforementioned document must be completed through the Airports of Thailand application (AOT) or can also be presented in a physical paper to the disease control officials upon arrival.
