T.8 Form: A must document for Thailand visa-on-arrival

To manage the risks of the ongoing pandemic, the Thailand Health Declaration, or T.8 Form, is a travel document that must be filled out by visitors of all nationalities before arriving in the country. You can apply for the T.8 Form at any time in advance.

Upon application, you will need to provide:

  • Your personal information
  • Health status and information about the intended stay in the country
  • A confirmed return flight ticket to submit with the form

The T.8 Health Declaration will be emailed to the designated people prior to their departure so that they can show it to the immigration officers at the airport.

This form does not replace a visa in any way.


Note: On account of the global pandemic, the rules regarding visa can be changed by the government at any time if needed.

The pandemic might be affecting your travels and careers, but you have other sources... you can still invest there!
