Travelling to Thailand
On 22 May the Chief of the Royal Thai Army announced that the military had taken control of government. Martial law is in place and provides an enabling framework for the Royal Thai Army to take action it deems necessary to enforce law and order. Instructions can change rapidly. As a result there is an increased number of Thai soldiers in Bangkok and neighbouring provinces. You should generally allow extra time for journeys, including to Bangkok airports.
A nationwide curfew has been announced 10pm to 5am. Authorities have advised that the curfew will not apply to those travelling to or from the airport, but departing or arriving travellers should have their passports and tickets. An official information desk is available at Bangkok International Airport.You should continue to monitor the media for information and any updates.

It is still deemed safe to travel to Thailand as protests are confined to small areas of Bangkok and foreigners are not a target.
