According to a post by the British Embassy, Thailand will be removed from the red list from 4am Monday 11 October, and those “fully vaccinated” (with a recognised vaccine) from Thailand will be able to enter England with just a day 2 test. No quarantine, self-isolation, or pre-departure test will be required.

To be considered “fully vaccinated” you must must have had a complete course of one of the following vaccines at least 14 days before you arrive in England:
✔️ Oxford/AstraZeneca (including the AZ shots manufactured in Thailand)
✔️ Pfizer BioNTech
Where 2 doses of a vaccine are required for a full course, you can mix 2 different types of vaccine from the above list, for example Oxford/AstraZeneca and Moderna.
However, if one of the doses you had is not on the above list (for example, Sinovac + Oxford/AstraZeneca) you can still enter England but will have to follow the rules for those not fully vaccinated. You will need to take a pre-departure test, a day 2 and day 8 test and complete 10 days self-isolation (with the option of Test to Release on day 5). We are working with international partners, to determine which other non-UK vaccines we might be recognised in the future.
