How To Buy Modafinil In Thailand – Is It Legal?

Buying modafinil in Thailand at actual pharmacies can be hard. You can find modafinil (Modalert, Modvigil, Provigil) primarily at pharmacies in the tourist zones of Bangkok. If you are looking to buy locally outside of Bangkok, don’t expect to have much luck.

Is Modafinil legal in Thailand?

You may be surprised that the answer is a resounding YES.

From Thailand’s own Narcotics Control Division of the Food and Drug Administration and the Ministry of Public Health website:

Provigil / Modafinil – General Drug – The drug is not classified as a narcotic drug or psychotropic substance according to Narcotics Act B.E. 2522.

Modafinil in Thailand is legal

An application for a permit from Thai FDA is not required.

Now that we know modafinil and armodafinil are legal in Thailand, what’s the best way to get it if we don’t want to physically walk into a pharmacy in downtown Bangkok, or we are not staying near downtown Bangkok?

Your best bet is going to be an online modafinil specialist pharmacy.

Some good options for buying modafinil at an online pharmacy are:

Afinilexpress – They ship from India, which takes longer and has a higher chance of getting stopped at Thai Customs
BuyModa – They ship from Singapore and I’ve had all of my orders arrive within 4 days.

Thailand’s close proximity to Singapore makes the shipping really fast.

My goal was to keep this post short and sweet, but I may revisit this subject of the legality of nootropics such as modafinil and armodafinil in Thailand in the future.

  1. This reply might be a bit late but I wanted to share my experience with Modafinil in Thailand.
    I am an expat and have lived in Thailand for several years and the one constant in Thailand is misinformation. The answer to a question depends on who you ask.
    Modafinil may not be ‘illegal’ in Thailand but neither is it legal and this creates a road block in customs, however, I believe tourists can legally enter the country with modest amounts of Moda.

    Ordering it from one of the internet sources such as Buy Moda is rarely successful. This is partly due to the fact that customs puts extra scrutiny on packages from India, Pakistan, and even Singapore.
    Also packages sent through express carriers such as FedEx are sure to be examined closely. When a package is held by Thai customs it enters a black hole never to be seen again.
    It is possible to get occasional delivery only because some packages fall throught the cracks but it is also possible to run afoul of the customs authorities – not recommended.

    Also I have not been able to find Modafinil or Armodafinil in legitimate pharmacies but it’s possible that there may sources I am not aware of.
    This is just my personal experience (and opinion), your mileage may vary.
