Thailand Travel Checklist

At Runway, we're looking to empower the traveler with information, resources and access to prescription travel medication. Runway Health Guides are compiled from government sources, local authorities and vetted by a team of licensed travel physicians. From vaccine requirements to medication recommendations, here’s everything you need to know.

Vaccine Entry Requirements For Thailand

Yellow Fever


If traveling directly from the US, Thailand does not require any vaccines to enter.

If your itinerary includes a visit to, or a 12+ hour layover in, a Yellow Fever endemic country prior to arrival, a Yellow Fever vaccine and proof of vaccination may be required to enter. For a list of Yellow Fever endemic countries, click here.

Countries with Risk of Yellow Fever Transmission:

Africa: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of Cono, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sudan, Togo, Uganda

South & Central America: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela

Proof of vaccination (Yellow Book) is only valid 10 days after you receive the vaccine.

Medications

Malaria Medication

if traveling to high transmission regions along the border of Myanmar, Malaysia, Laos and Cambodia. Low transmission in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and on the islands.

to alleviate an intestinal infection resulting from eating or drinking contaminated food or water. It is the most common travel-related illness and can occur anywhere, but the highest-risk destinations are in Asia, Africa, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Middle East.

Some travelers get these

when traveling from the US to Thailand

Vaccines

Typhoid

if you are visiting rural or remote areas or enjoying an extended stay in the country.

Cholera

is rare for travelers, and vaccination is not routinely recommended. It may be considered if you are working in humanitarian settings or visiting friends or family in active transmission areas. Avoiding unsafe food or water and regularly washing your hands is your best bet for staying safe.

Rabies

may be considered if planning activities that involve direct contact with animals or wildlife – ie. wild camping, cave exploring, or fieldwork in rural areas. As a rule, we recommend avoiding interaction with animals – even domestic pets may carry diseases.

Japanese Encephalitis

is only recommended for those who frequently visit or are planning to spend a month or longer in areas with Japanese encephalitis.

Medications

Motion Sickness Medication

will ensure your travels by air, land or sea are more enjoyable without nausea and dizziness tagging along.

Sleep Aids

may be a great addition to your packing list if you struggle with jet lag or sleeplessness due to travel stress or time zone changes.
