  • India still Requires the Covid-19 PCR Test for Non-Vaccinated Travellers

Although the Indian government has removed the restriction on entering the country, non-vaccinated travelers are still required to upload a negative PCR test result  performed within 72 hours of their departure time in Airsubidha, the online minutes in the ministry of foreign affairs portal. Vaccinated travelers simply can upload the vaccine certificate card and are no longer required to perform the Test.

With many nations allowing foreign visitors, Indian tourists have begun traveling across the world. Thailand has always been the go-to place tourist destination for Indians. Thailand’s tourism industry has received a boost since the removal of entire covid-19 travel restrictions and the start of the holiday season. From the onset of Oct 1, 2022, Thailand no longer requires Covid Travel Insurance or any kind of COVID-19 Test before arriving in Thailand regardless of vaccination status.
As of now, approximately 5.8 million foreign tourists have visited Thailand since the start of the year. Thailand is expected to host over 10 million international tourists throughout this year, making India the most significant group among all foreign arrivals visiting Thailand. Most Indian tourists visit Pattaya and Phuket. Recently, many Indian tourists are flocking to Chiang Mai, north of Thailand as well. However, many Indian tourists arriving in Thailand with their children are experiencing difficulties in finding the Covid Test Center for their unvaccinated children and family.
