Two Russian airlines start selling tickets to Thailand
Russian airlines Aeroflot and S7 have opened the sale of tickets to Thailand: flights from Moscow and Novosibirsk are currently available for booking.
As the Moscow office of the Kingdom's Tourism Administration said, flights from Russia to Thailand have been resumed since December 26, 2020, when the first weekly S7 flight successfully flew from Novosibirsk to Bangkok. Aeroflot Airlines started operating weekly flights on the Moscow-Bangkok-Moscow route from January 7, and on the Moscow-Phuket-Moscow route from January 23.
According to the Thai Embassy in the Russian Federation, Russian citizens traveling to Thailand for tourist purposes will be allowed for boarding if they have all the documents necessary for entry. The basic rule for all tourists is to observe quarantine at ASQ hotels in Bangkok and ALQ hotels in other provinces of Thailand for the first 16 days/15 nights. A room in such hotel must be booked in advance and a booking confirmation must be provided upon arrival. Those travelers who plan to visit Thailand within 90-270 days must apply for a Special Tourist visa (STV) and Certificate of Entry (COE).
Tourists who travel to Thailand for 60-90 days (60 + 30 days) must apply for a Tourist visa (TR) and Certificate of Entry (COE). For holders of an ordinary foreign passport of Russian Federation who plan to come to Thailand for a period of up to 30 days, a visa is not required, but they must contact the Thai Embassy to obtain a Certificate of Entry (COE).
