Advise on Pre-sale Ticket for Commercial Flights to Thailand
As a number of airlines begin to resume their international flights
schedule and some may open pre-sale ticket for commercial flights to Thailand
starting July 2020, despite the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has
not yet confirmed whether the international flights suspension will be resumed by 1
In this regard, to prevent passengers from the possibility that
international flights may not be able to operate to Thailand as claimed by the airlines
and passengers may face difficulties to have their ticket refunded, the Embassy thus
wishes to suggest that passengers delay purchasing flight tickets to Thailand until
CAAT officially confirms the schedule to re-open the airport in Thailand.
Furthermore, in the case that CAAT decides to re-open the airport, some restrictions
may be put in place, in particular, flight restriction from countries with high number
of COVID-19 infection. The list of such countries are also to be confirmed.
In addition, those who wish to return to Thailand must obtain approval
and/or given quota to enter the country and must obtain documents including health
certificate and a letter from the Embassy for Thai nationals and Certificate of Entry
(COE) for foreign nationals. Furthermore, all arrival passengers are required to be
under state quarantine for 14 days.
