Current Philippines entrance requirements: To enter the nation, all travellers must get an e-CIF, also known as a Health Declaration Form. Thai nationals currently do not need a visa to visit the Philippines if they are going for pleasure for less than 30 days. If you are travelling to the Philippines for work, then you will need a valid work permit.

Citizens of the Philippines do not need a tourist visa to visit Thailand for a stay of up to 30 days. If your stay in Thailand is fewer than 30 days, you are good to depart. Citizens of certain countries, including the Philippines, can apply for a Thaising Visa at a Thai Embassy or Consulate in those countries.
Thai immigration officials may ask to see your ticket(s) when you enter the country. You will be allowed only one entry into Thailand if you do not have a passport. If you overstay your visa, you will be fined.
In addition to the visa requirement, citizens of the Philippines also need a valid passport to travel to Thailand. If your passport is due for renewal, now is a good time to go to the nearest consulate of Thailand and get it renewed. If your passport is not yet due for renewal but you want to bring it up-to-date, you can do so by contacting the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) of the Philippines.
