Although neither a proper lockdown or curfew have yet been imposed in Thailand some governors decided to use their lawful right for extra restriction. Thus this is critically important for a traveler to know in which provinces (luckily, very-very few) the extra restriction is in force.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has already confirmed that some provinces are urging everyone to avoid going out at night unless utmost necessary, effective from now until further notice. Yet, there is nothing about penalties.


Nonthaburi, 21.00-04.00.
Pathum Thani, 21.00-04.00.
Samut Prakan, 21.00-04.00.
Samut Sakhon, 23.00-04.00.


Bueng Kan, 23.00-04.00.


Songkhla, 22.00-04.00.

Trang, 22.00-03.00.


No night time restrictions except for all bridges onto and off the island are soon to be closed to all traffic from 11pm to 5am.

TAT emphasizes that this is a living document, which will be updated as soon as any new information becomes available.

Also TAT would like to remind all travellers to take DMHTT precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19: D – Distancing, M – Mask wearing, H – Handwashing, T – Temperature check, and T – Thai Chana contact tracing application.
