What is Quarantine?

Quarantine is defined as public health practice used to protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease such as COVID-19. It is a separation and restriction of the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease such as COVID-19 to see if they become sick. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms.

What is Alternative State Quarantine or ASQ?

The ASQ is a process of quarantine at government-accredited hotels in Bangkok at the traveler’s own expense. For non-Thai nationality travelers, many hotels together with hospitals launched Alternative State Quarantine Packages for those returning from abroad. These hotels have been approved by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health and the Ministry of Defense.

What is Alternative State Quarantine or ASLQ?

ASLQ is the quarantine facilities in cities outside Bangkok such as Phuket, Pattaya, Buriram, and Prachinburi.

How long is the quarantine?

Starting April 1, 2021, the mandatory quarantine will be reduced to 10 days for most travelers and 7 days for vaccinated (2 doses) travelers.

Can I quarantine in my own home?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to quarantine in your own home at this time. You have to undergo quarantine in the accredited hotels only.

What is the cost of the ASQ?

The cost may vary depending on the hotel with a price range from 28,000 THB to 220,000 for the mandatory quarantine with better facilities, a good atmosphere, in a clean and safe environment.

What are included in the ASQ package?

Normally, the package includes 3 meals per day, complimentary WiFi, and a private car transfer from the airport. A nurse is on call 24/7, and you will have your temperature taken and health checked twice a day. The package also includes two COVID-19 tests that take place on the 5th and 13th day of your quarantine. If you have a fever of 37.5 degrees or more, you will be transferred to a hospital.

      Dear BK,
      Since the arrival date is June 27th, you must quarantine for 7 days and no, you cannot leave the quarantine on July 1st. You must complete the 7-day quarantine. If you would not want to do the quarantine, please arrive on or after July 1st.
      Thank you.

      Dear Tal,
      Good day.
      Yes, the ASQ Hotels will accept unmarried couples but you need to book two separate rooms.
      Thank you.

    Hello, my local airport flight departs in the afternoon, and after an overnight layover, my international flight to Thailand departs the following afternoon. For purposes of the 72 hours pre-departure limit for covid testing, which flight is considered the departure flight? Thank you.

      Thank you.

      Having just flown in, in our experience, the COVID -19 negative result needs to be 72-hours from departure, so flying on Wednesday from London this week meant my swab sample could not have been before Monday and my result no later than the morning of my flight. My swab was dated the Monday (AM) and cert was dated the Tuesday (eve) and both were fine by the time we landed in Thailand. What we weren’t prepared for was the requirements of the transit country; in my case, Frankfurt. For example, they required the certificate to be within 48-hours. Fortunately we were within the time frame, however, there was additional paperwork to be completed for that transit/arrival, before we could check in, which we hadn’t realised.

      There are COVID tests available at the airport (UK) however, the appointments aren’t available for “urgent” cases so you can end up having to miss the flight (if you don’t have all the paperwork and are asked to get an additional test done).

      For info, the process when you arrive is swift and very organised. Temp and doc check. Through to an official for a further check. Then onto immigration and passport control. Afterwards, collect your bags and as you enter the arrival hall you’ll be greeted by someone from your hotel who will take you straight there (where there are also checks and processes – again very swift).
