Koh Larn council announces everyone entering Koh Larn must be vaccinated from Covid-19 starting August 4th

Koh Larn –

The Koh Larn Local Committee has announced new rules which will start from Wednesday, August 4th for anyone who wants to enter Koh Larn. Visitors must be fully* vaccinated from Covid-19 or have recovered from COVID-19 within 90 days AND must have a negative test.

* See below, may depend on vaccine brand for what the island considers fully vaccinated

Fully vaccinated visitors will NOT need a negative Covid-19 test, only those who have recovered from Covid-19 within 90 days.

The Koh Larn Covid-19 Volunteer Committee announced the new rules over the weekend:

Anyone who wants to enter Koh Larn MUST be fully vaccinated with two full doses of Sinovac or Sinopharm, or one dose of Sinovac and one dose of  AstraZeneca, or one dose of  AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson and Johnson at least 14 days before entry.


have recovered from COVID-19 within less than 90 days and MUST have a negative test by an RT-PCR or Rapid Antigen test no more than 72 hours before entering. This test would be at the financial expense of the visitor.

Anyone under the age of 18 will not be allowed at all as they cannot be vaccinated currently in Thailand OR if they are identified as essential to enter by the island council, such as a resident who is not currently on the island, will need a negative test no more than 72 hours before entering.

Koh Larn residents who have not been vaccinated but need to travel between Koh Larn and on land must have permission documents from the island council, who warned these would be difficult to get and urged all eligible residents to get vaccinated.

In case of an emergency or doctor appointments for unvaccinated residents of the island or those under the age of eighteen, residents should please inform their village headsman.

This order is until further notice, without a specific date of expiration. TPN media notes that ALL maximum control rules in Chonburi around Covid-19, including the closure of beaches, remain in effect, so even if one wanted to visit Koh Larn, the beaches are shut, dine-in at restaurants are closed, and all tourist attractions are shuttered.
