As part of her Long Range Operational Deployment to the North Pacific Ocean and South China Sea, INS Kadmatt arrived at Bangkok, Thailand, on December 19, 2023. The aim of the visit is to further bolster India - Thailand maritime cooperation and enhance interoperability between both the navies.

Harbour activities scheduled during the operational turnaround include Cross-ship visit by personnel from Royal Thai Navy (RTN) Academy and planning conference for Maritime Partnership Exercise (MPX). On departure from Bangkok, the ship will undertake MPX with HTMS Rattanakosin, a corvette of the Royal Thai Navy.
