The government of Thailand has opened up the country to all travellers, without the need for on-arrival quarantine. Visitors from overseas no longer have to apply for a Thailand Pass. Vaccinated travellers may have to present certificate of vaccination at check in or boarding, depending on airline. Unvaccinated travellers or those not fully vaccinated need to complete an RT-PCR or Professional Antigen (Pro-ATK) test through a clinic or medical professional. The test result must be issued within 72 hours before departing for Thailand. However, Sarnelli House is not accepting guests who are not fully vaccinated. Health insurance specifically for Covid-19 is no longer required but travel or health insurance is still recommended. For further information, please contact your local Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate.

Sarnelli House is looking forward to the return of volunteers and other visitors, but will require all guests, Thai and foreign, to be fully vaccinated against Covid 19. We are lucky to have been able to welcome guests from the USA, The Netherlands, Germany & France recently, and look forward to seeing more of our friends in the coming months. Guests to Sarnelli House may have to isolate for 48 hours in order to protect any children with compromised immune systems. For information about visiting or volunteering, write to contact@sarnellihouse.org
