How to Apply for the Certificate of Entry (COE)?

Step 1: Visit the COE online portal/website and register by filling in your details, and upload supporting documents such as a copy of passport, copy of the valid visa, and COVID-19 travel insurance. The Embassy will screen and pre-approve the applicants who meet the requirements. Please check the status of your application after 1-3 working days.

Step 2: The applicants can check their status online if they have been pre-approved. They will be contacted by email if the Embassy requires more documents. The applicants who are pre-approved passengers can then buy flight tickets and book their ASQ or SHA+ hotels. Copy of the flight ticket and the ASQ hotel or SHA+ Hotel booking confirmation has to be uploaded to get the COE. Please check the status of your application after 1-3 working days.

Step 3: When the COE has been approved, the applicants can check their status online and click to download their COE.

How long does it take to obtain the COE?

It is strongly recommended that the applicant spares at least 15 working days before the travel date to apply for the COE. If you do not have a valid visa, it is recommended to secure your visa before applying for the COE.

What is the validity of the COE?

The Certificate of Entry is valid only for the intended date of travel. The COE will specifically state your name, passport details, flight date of departure and arrival, flight number, and the name of your ASQ hotel. In case, you need to postpone your trip or change the details of your flight, you need to make a new application for the COE to obtain a new certificate with the new flight details or ASQ hotel details.

What do you have to do after receiving the COE?

Once you have received your COE, you have to prepare the following documents for your trip to Thailand. It will be presented to the airline before departure:

  • Certificate of Entry (COE)
  • Valid visa in your passport
  • Declaration Form
  • Medical Certificate with a laboratory result indicating that COVID -19 is not detected. The COVID test must be by the RT-PCR method, the test must be conducted within 72 hours before departure. Some airlines do not accept home kit tests so please check specific requirements with the airlines you are traveling with.
  • Copy of Travel insurance policy that covers COVID and no less than 50,000 USD. The policy must cover the whole duration of your stay or the duration of your visa. Please print the insurance certificate and all pages of the terms and conditions on the COVID-19 coverage and medical benefits. You may be refused to board the flight if you could not show that the insurance meets this requirement.
  • Copy of confirmed ASQ hotel booking or SHA+ Hotel Booking
  • Flight itinerary
  • T8 Form
  • You must download “Thailand Plus” Application on your mobile phone

    Hello!
    What are the rules for children? I have a daughter who is 2 years old,before i applied for the COE it said clearly in the information that children under 6 years would not have to do a PCR-test and that seems to still be the case when arriving in Thailand but according to the airline no one is exempt from the 72 hours before flight pcr-test. So what are the rules??? //Robbi

    I believe my United Health Care, Medicare advantage (USA) covers medical cost when traveling abroad. Can that coverage be suffice for the health insurance requirements for entry into Thailand? Or can I use another Travel insurance, such as Travel Guard?

    Hi,

    I am looking to fly in on the 15th of December from the UK and I am double vaccinated. However when filling in the ‘Registration system for Certificate of Entry’ it defaults me to acknowledge that I need to quarantine for 7-10 days as opposed to one. Is this correct?

    We started COE omn 10/10 – first confirmation we received 27/10 instead of just havcing to wait 3 days it took 17 days but we immediately fulfilled rest of the needed formalities on 27th Oct. for COE

    On Monday in addition we registered under Thailandpass as well

    Our flight is in 3 days (saturday) and neither of the portals sent us a confirmation/QR code.
    Hundreds of calls at embassy Frankfurt: unanswered!
    several emails to consulate/embassy Frankfurt: unanswered

    we have all we need and we are about to lose thousands of Euros for a 3 week trip to Thailand due to slow bureaucracy – what to do???

    Hello, I’m planning to visit Bangkok on 24th November 2021. I’ve got vaccinated 1st dose of COVIDShield-Astrazeneca under UNICEF programme since 18th August 2021. Unfortunately, I’m still waiting for the call of 2nd dose. Unfortunately, can I mix with Chinese vaccines (Sinopharm/Sinovac) for my 2nd dose within 3 months (12 weeks) after my 1st dose? I noted that I need fully vaccinated at least 14 days before my departure.

    Dear Rex

    I have one question.
    I am fully vaccinated with two shots and i am an norwegian ziticen.
    I am traveling from a country that is not on the quarentine free list(Republic of Congo).
    I was wondering what type of option should i apply for when going to pattaya under Thailand Pass. I know i must sit 7 days in quarentine but is it option 2 i must take (Sandbox Programme) or option 3 (Alternative Quarentine). The reason i ask is that i want to go and live in the house with my wife after 7 days and not another hotell and i get all confused about what i should take that is correct in my case?
    Hope to hear from you.

    approx. two weeks ago I applied for the Phuket Sandbox program at the COE.
    After the first pre-approval I continued with the procedure and now I wait for the final confirmation. This has been processing now for 2 weeks and I don´t have the final confirmation yet.
    Now my question:
    Are ongoing processes be completed at COE until implemetation of Thailand Pass System 1st of Nov.?
    Do I need to register at Thailand Pass because I haven´t received a confirmation from COE yet?

    Good morning
    Please may I confirm the procedure for Thai Pass for my two children.
    We will be travelling to Phuket as a family with two fully vaccinated adults and two children aged 12 and 13 years old.
    The children have received one dose vaccination of Pfizer which is what the UK Government directed acceptable. In the UK children under the age of 16 are not issued with a vaccination certificate.
    Are the children eligible for Thai Pass and how long do we need to book an SHA+ Hotel for? Is it 1 night or 7 nights. Could you confirm that we would not need to quarantine for 10 nights and can move freely?

In the update it says if you don’t get pre-approved for COE by 1st November it will be rejected but then Thailand pass needs to be applied 7 days before travelling. So is it gonna work for people travelling from India on the 6rh Nov it’s pretty confusing as in what a person needs to do.

    I have a few inquiries regarding the certificate of entry (COE), recently I have applied the COE through the website on the 27/10/2021. In the given forms I filled the expected date to travel is on the 3rd of November 2021 (3/11/2021) and I just received the pre-approval from the website last night around 8:18Pm (28/11/2021).

    For the flight reservation , can I change the date of flight to another date in the next process ? probably around 12/11/2021 because I’m afraid to get flight in this very last minute a bit hard. I have to upload the evidence of my flight reservation and AQ within 15 days.

    Hi,

    I urgently need support with my COE please. I have been trying to upload my travel details and documents for 24hrs but each time I get to the point of saving a message comes up to say:

    Database exception (22007) Internal server error occurred.

    Please advise how I can proceed. I have all details and documentation required and I am due to fly next Weds 3rd November so need to get this sorted urgently.

    I am not able to do the Thailand Pass as registration does not open until 1st Nov and can take 7 days to be processed.

    PLEASE HELP!!

    Thank you so much

    Hello, I am going to Thailand on a 30 days visa exemption. Can I further extend my visa for 60 days? I am married to a Thai spouse but cannot apply Non-O visa yet as the money on my bank account need another 2 months to season.

    Dear Sir,
    Thank you for always good info. Two questions:i have my COE issued with statement of 7 days quarantine in the start of november, but my country is on the low risk list. So how do I avoid the quarantine? They also issued my COE even if i send ticket showing i will stay 39 days. Can i just wait and get extension after I arrive? Thank you for your help.

    My COE application has been rejected for only one reason and the consulate has asked me to correct it before resubmitting. The reason – I mistakenly put HND – Tokyo as my port of departure instead of NRT -Tokyo. I have tried basically for hours to correct this mistake in every possible way and have asked for assistance from others. No matter what I do, when I hit save/confirm it reverts back to HND -Tokyo. What am I doing wrong and how can I fix this? Thank you for your help.

    Hi,

    I fly from London to Phuket on 7th November. I have already been pre-approved for the COE & got the rest of my documents ready to be uploaded except the PCR tests receipts as i have just noticed the website states “temporarily closed until the official entry process is announced”, so really i can’t do anything until the 1st Nov.

    Will i have enough time from 1st November to upload all of my documents onto Thailandpass in order to get the QR code before the flight on 7th? I am unsure what to do, either carry on with the COE or to upload everything on Thailand pass once its goes live, please could you advise?

    If i did go along and finish off my COE application on the 1st, will it have the option to quarantine for only 1 day? (therefore i can contact the hotel reduce my stay from 7 days to 1)

    Thank you.

    I am travelling to Thailand on 2 Nov – I submitted my COE application under Phuket Sandbox before Exemption From Quarantine was an option. My application was rejected as I did not book 7 nights in Phuket (per Sandbox rules). Now, Exemption From Quarantine is an option – I resubmitted my COE application under this program, but it as not appear this application was accepted. How can I submit under Exemption From Quarantine?

    Hello. we will arrive to Bangkok on Nov 9th and want to take an immediate conection flight to Chiang may (not leaving the airport) we both Vaccinated.
    Can we do that or need to stay in Bangkok until receiving the covid19 test results first? can we stay in quarantine hotel in Chiang may?

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Liat,

      Good day.
      Unfortunately it is not possible. You need to stay 1 night in Bangkok with COVID test result before you can travel to Chiang Mai. Or you can find a flight to Chiang Mai that has no stop in Bangkok. Once you have the negative COVID result, you go to Chiang Mai and there is no need to quarantine in Chiang Mai.

Today I was informed they wanted me to wait until November 1st for the new Thailand Pass system. I attempted to communicate with my hotel but they wish for me to still follow COE guidelines. Is SHABA still required after November 1st? This article implies you just need a confirmed booking and nothing else. Thank you for your response.

    Hello,

    I applied for the COE more than a week ago, paid for the travel insurance and hoped to travel on the 3rd November. However my application is still under consideration when I check on the website. A text box appears when I searched this morning to tell me that the COE is being replaced by the Thailand pass but that the application process doesn’t open until 1 November. Is there a way I can still use my COE application as I really want to go ahead and book flights/ accommodation. I fall under the visa exemption rule and plan to enter Thailand through the Phuket sandbox programme.

    I would appreciate any help or advice.

      Dear Juri,

      When you arrive in Phuket, you can still use the No Quarantine Program. Your COE will state that you are Eligible for Quarantine Exemption after you tested negative on COVID test after arrival. You can ask for the refund from the hotel after that.

    2. I am planning to enter Thailand on Nov 1st and are from an eligible country for the Thailand pass. I guess I still have to purchase 2 tests and book 7 nights of SHA+ for the final COE approval?
    Also would it be possible to change my flight from HKT to BKK? (Departing at the same time) or would I possible hand in my BKK flight Details straight away when (hopefully!) receiving my initial approval?

    Hello Rex,

    I have read through previous answers and I am hoping very much that the situation is still the same now as about 2wks ago, re a flight change and COE.

    I am an Australian in Greece; I live on a small island here half the year, in Phuket the other 6 months (have retirement visa). My domestic flight to Athens was delayed yesterday, causing me to miss my ATH-HKT flight. I have gotten all the docs re-issued that i can; changed my Emirates flight to 24 hrs later; ditto my SHA+ booking, swab tests, etc. PCR is still valid. The only doc that I cannot get a date change is my COE. According to the Thai Embassy in Athens, there is only one person who can do this, and she is not in the office today.

    I read on my COE form that we have a 72hr window to rebook a flight, without needing to get a replacement COE doc. But no-one seems able to confirm this ! So here I am at the airport, biting all nails, and hoping your advice to Sergei some weeks ago is still current. Any reassurance would be SO much appreciated !! 🙂

    I was denied access onto a flight on Sunday 24.10.21 because I did not have a visa or flight leaving Thailand Worthing 30 days of arrival. If I book a flight out of thailand within 30 days, can I use my same COE To travel and arrive in thailand within 72 hours. The Thai embassy did not tell me I need to have an outbound flight within 30 days. I intended to extend my allowed stay and get a visa if necessary in thailand. My trip is planned for 88 days.
