No need to stay in a designated hotel for 7, 10, or 14 days. You will stay in SHA+ Hotel on Day 1 or date of arrival and do a COVID-19 test. If you have received the RT-PCR COVID-19 test with a negative result, you are allowed to freely travel everywhere in Thailand. You will then do the second COVID test on Day 5.
