UPDATED 21  May 2022



The Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) determines the restrictions to be in place for Thailand. These restrictions are recommended to the Thai cabinet which generally approves them and, where needed, publishes them in the Royal Gazette.

Please note that Provincial governors and disease committees can alter these rules if they wish and provinces should wait for final orders from these groups.

We will publish the latest information we have here including a section on orders by the Chonburi Governor which includes Pattaya and surrounding areas following the general announcements.


The CCSA has recommended the following changes to take effect on 1 June 2022 (upon approval of Thai Cabinet and publication in the Royal Gazette if needed).
