On Tuesday, the Thai cabinet approved in principle the proposal that all foreigners residing in the country on a non-immigrant visa (O-A visa) must have COVID-19 insurance of at least $100,000 (three million baht).
Deputy government spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul said the rule will apply to all one-year non-immigrant visa holders, who are from marriage, labor, business and retiree groups.

The new regulation was issued following an amendment to the regulations approved by the cabinet in April 2020. Currently, O-A visa holders in Thailand must be insured for approximately $1,300 (40,000 baht) for outpatient treatment or $13,000 (400,000 baht) for inpatient treatment.
