The pandemic has negatively impacted the operation of every institution globally and Thailand is no exception. There are many measures taken in order to manage everyday life at every level including higher education. While the government has made plans for new and returning students to enter Thailand,
we are looking forward to an official announcement from them on the dates the country will open to receive the new students..
Further, there are requirements being made regarding students entering Thailand. Students planning to enter Thailand need to apply for student visa at the Thai Embassy in their country. Documents needed for visa application include:
- Certificate of Entry (COE) issued by the Thai embassy or consulate, where you applied for your visa.
- Fit to Fly Certificate issued by relevant authority
- COVID-19 medical test result. This must be issued no longer than 72 hours before the date of travel. This certificate is also necessary at the airline’s check-in counter for a boarding pass to be issued.
- Health Insurance Policy covering treatment and medical expenses related to COVID-19 with a minimum coverage of 100,000 USD (please contact Admission Office for latest information on insurance coverage from Thai agencies and the premium rate)
Upon arrival in Thailand, the students will be placed in state quarantine facility. The list of accommodation is available at the embassy. The cost ranges from 30,000 baht to over 100,000 baht for 14 days. After 14 days, students’ names will be sent to Muak Lek district office of public health. Upon arrival on campus, the team from public health district will track everyone coming on campus from overseas and will make sure that they adhere to the requirements for newly arrived people.
