Some overall health-insurance policies also provide covid-19 coverage.

And you can buy relatively cheap specific covid-19 insurance when in Thailand.


I am residing in Thailand and my long-term travel-insurance policy does NOT cover it.

But I do not see the necessity for subscribing to such a policy given the fact that Thailand is virtually covid-free.  Of course everybody is free to subscribe to such covid-19 insurance if they think it useful for their situation.


Thailand is covid free for now. Many places that were covid free not too long ago are not covid free now.

Better have it than not - and you just don't know when covid will start to rip through Thailand. It could be any day now and better be covered than not.


I see no particular problem with this Thai govt requirement. You can try and fault it but many govt's have made an absolute mess of their covid response.
