COVID-19 Tests in Thailand: Hospitals and Pricelist

Due to the spread of COVID-19 and the restrictions in international travel, currently, negative COVID-19 test result is required for entry to many countries. If you are looking for a hospital to make your COVID-19 test before flying out from Thailand and wondering how much do COVID-19 tests in Thailand cost, you will find the answer in this article.

COVID-19 Insurance

As the number of COVID-19 cases in Thailand is increasing, getting a proper health insurance covering COVID-19 treatment at the hospital in Thailand becomes even more important than just complying with the requirement for entering Thailand (you must have a health insurance policy covering COVID-19 treatment for at least 10,000 USD). Currently even asymptomatic cases are hospitalized in Thailand, so getting an insurance that would cover such cases is recommended.

Thai insurance company AXA Thailand is offering a special insurance package Sawasdee Thailand that complies with government's requirements and covers medical expenses incurred based on medical necessity regardless of the showing of symptoms. You can conveniently buy this insurance online before traveling to Thailand.

Many hospitals in Thailand provide coronavirus testing service at your own expense. The package of COVID-19 Screening can be varied depending on the type of the test and where you get tested. The most usual test method in Thailand is RT-PCR testing through nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs which is also commonly used internationally. If the inspection method is specified by the country of travel differently, make sure to check with the hospital if the COVID-19 test will comply the required one.

The prices of COVID-19 PT-PCR test in Thailand start from 2,200-2,500 THB. However, keep in mind that some hospitals might NOT include the fee of Medical Certificate with RT-PCR laboratory result indicating that COVID-19 is not detected.

English PCR Negative certificates can be issued by hospitals. If you are travel to a country that requests a designated format, please consult with the doctor.

When you get test results?

Generally, results indicating that COVID-19 is not detected will be available approximately 24-48 hours of being tested. If the test is positive, then you are required to get further test and treatment. Most often results will come the next day. However, if you wish to get the certificate on the same day, you need to book an appointment and get tested in a very early morning and then the certificate will often be handed over from 16:00 or 18:00 on the day you have the examination. In few cases retesting may be necessary, and even those who were tested on the same day may have a time lag.

Tips for getting COVID-19 test in Thailand

As the number of new coronavirus infections in Thailand is increasing dramatically, it is recommended to avoid contact with other patients in the hospitals and use the "Drive thru" COVID-19 test service.
