FAQ regarding the COVID-19 situation in Thailand

Published Monday June 15 2020

Can foreigners travel to Thailand?

No, they cannot. Foreigners are banned from entering, transferring or transiting the Kingdom of Thailand, at all points with the exception of diplomats, cargo shipments, pilots, and foreigners with a work permit until further notice. Visitors or residents can still leave the country.

Is there any existing curfew in Thailand?

No, it has not been in effect since June 15, 2020.

Is it possible to travel anywhere in Thailand if we are living in the kingdom?

Yes, it is possible to travel within the country. However, the usual precautionary measures regarding the Covid-19 must be observed, particularly the wearing of a mask and respect for social distancing in public places.

Which buildings are open?

All buildings are reopened, and schools are gradually opening.

What are precautionary measures advised when traveling outside?

You should wear surgical or protective masks in public places. You should frequently wash your hands with soap, alcohol, gel or disinfectant. You must keep a distance of at least one meter from others when you are sitting or waiting to prevent physical contact or contamination of the disease through the postilions.

What should I do if I want to return to Luxembourg?

You must be sure that your visa is still valid before leaving. It is automatically extended until September 26, 2020 without having to go to an Immigration office if the visa has not expired after March 26, 2020. Then, you must check with airlines for commercial flights still available. The Embassy cannot provide a detailed list of available flights due to the extreme difficulty in obtaining reliable and current information. It is therefore everyone's duty to seek a flight to Europe. Luxembourg Findel Airport is open, as are many airports around the world. Since June 15, 2020, the internal borders of the European Union have been reopened for citizens of the European Union from abroad. It is no longer necessary to present a certificate allowing you to transit through a Member State.
