Countries requiring Yellow Fever vaccination to enter Thailand
List of countries which require International Health Certificate for Yellow Fever Vaccination
The Ministry of Public Health has issued regulations that applicants who have travelled from or through the countries which have been declared Yellow Fever Infected Areas must provide an International Health Certificate proving that they have received a Yellow Fever vaccination.
Yellow fever vaccination proof is normally not asked for on visa application or boarding flight. The vaccination certificate is a yellow book most commonly known as yellow card. It is valid for 10 years, all travellers over the age of 9 months need it from at risk countries. Most at risk countries haven’t had an outbreak for decades.
First place it’s asked for is Port Health Control at Bangkok airport.
Before going to immigration, you need to complete a health questionnaire and show your ‘yellow card’ then you will get a paper certificate and a sticker which you are supposed to wear until you have exited the airport.
You will need to show the paper certificate along with your passport at immigration.
If you have a passport from one of the countries where the vaccination is required from, you will get asked for it even if you are not travelling from that country. Nationals of countries not on the list, but travelling from one of these countries will also need a certificate.
So, showing the card at immigration is not enough, you need to get your card checked at the port of health, answer their questions and get their certificate. You are told to keep the certificate with you during your time in Thailand.
