Thailand Covid Insurance for Thailand Pass

One of the most important requirements for visitors to Thailand, now that the old rules have been lifted, is the COVID-19 insurance plan for foreigners, which covers the traveler for at least $10,000. In addition to meeting all the other requirements, the traveler must also have a valid visa and a Thailand Pass. This health insurance is an extra safety measure to make sure that the traveler will be able to pay for all costs if they get COVID-19 or die from it while they are in the kingdom.

When it comes to documentation, Thai immigration authorities are notoriously rigorous, and they only accept insurance from a select few providers. If you’re going to travel to Thailand, a number of insurance companies in Thailand have teamed together to create COVID-19 insurance plans that will be approved by immigration, and these policies may be acquired quickly and conveniently online.

What are the most affordable options?

Currently there is a FWD Covid Insurance policy for only ฿650 (19 USD) policy which will meet the entry requirements.

In order to qualify for the FWD Covid Insurance policy you need to meed one of the following requirements

  • apply 14+ days prior the policy effective date, or
  • provide negative PCR test result within 72 hours prior to the policy effective date

If you cannot meet these requirements then you may be interested in WorldTrips Covid InsuranceMSIG Covid Insurance, or LUMA Covid Insurance.

What is the recommended policy?

We recommend the LUMA Covid Insurance as they has instant approval, and you can apply for your Thailand Pass right after you get the document with 1 minute. The LUMA Covid Insurance will also automatically cover travel to Singapore, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, and Vietnam.

  • Full Name of the traveler
  • Coverage amount $10,000+

Is anyone foolish enough to believe that restrictive insurance requirements aren't just a way for certain 'influential' individuals to make eye-watering amounts of money?

Not a single word about International ( foreign) health insurances. Mine covers Covid-19 till US$ 100,000.- ,separate certificate provided.  A Thai 30 Day insurance for a returning Retiree doesn't suite. Are these Thai insurances covering age 75+? Anyway a Retiree has a minimum of B800,000 on a Thai bankaccount. Not a single consideration about that, like it not exists.
