What to do upon entry to Thailand?
When entering Thailand, the foreigner or non-Thai national is requested to follow the Thai authority’s guidelines for preventing the COVID-19 pandemic as follows:
- Present the Thailand Pass QR code to the Thai authorities at the airport of arrival
- Present the COVID-19 PCR test result certificate
- Present the completed and signed Declaration Form
- Present the COVID 19 travel insurance policy
- Present the valid non-immigrant visa and work permit (if applicable)
- The foreign national will be subjected to a mandatory state quarantine at a government-designated ASHQ Hotels under the supervision of the Ministry of Public Health at his or her own expense.
Are there any requirements for people to complete quarantine in specific areas? For instance, I saw this message on the thaiconsulateireland.com page but I can’t find a reference to this anywhere else.
‘Once you receive the visa, you must book a 14-day quarantine, at your own expense, in the Alternative State Quarantine in Chonburi’
I’d rather quarantine in Bangkok if possible and have heard of other Irish people doing this.
For those flights arriving in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, you can book a quarantine hotel in Bangkok or Pattaya.
any news regarding a vaccine passport for entry?
are there any ASQ villa rentals in BANGKOK?
As of writing, the proposed vaccine passport or reduced quarantine has not been approved by the Canbinet. You may want to check with us in 2 to 3 weeks.
There are no villa quarantine facilities in Bangkok but there are some ASQ hotels by the river with private balcony.
I have a plan to travel thailand next month. Can i buy other hotel for qurantine instead of ASQ because ASQ hotels is very expensive.
Yes, the reason why the ASQ is expensive is that it is an accredited facility for those foreigners entering Thailand. You have no other choice but to book an ASQ or ALQ. After you have completed the quarantine, you may book a normal hotel room.
I am flying to Bangkok in two days (international flight). Is it possible to get an other flight to Phuket and do the quarentine there. If yes, could you please send me the contact details of an agent/hotel/flight company who can help me to book it.
No, it is not possible unless your flight from Bangkok to Phuket is a private jet arranged by your Phuket Villa.
I will be arriving at the BKK airport at 23:00. Does the quarantine period begin at the time of arrival at the airport or at the hotel. Thank you
Yes, that is the Day 1 and you will be released on Day 15. I believe that is how the hotels will calculate it.
My wife and my daughter are French citizens and I am Italian. We are in Italy and finally we got our visa from the China embassy in Rome to go back in China where we live and work. We would like to fly in Thailand in the middle of March and have our quarantine in one of ASQ hotels. After the quarantine, we would like to fly in China. Do you think is it possible to do that?
Yes, it is possible for you to travel to Thailand and travel to China after that. You need to apply for a COE or certificate of entry for Thailand. You will be able to apply for the 45-day free visa and COE from the Thai Embassy in Rome. The quarantine at ASQ hotel will be 15 days and you have 30 days to travel around Thailand. Please note that if you are only transiting for a night, we do not recommend that. If you want to stay for 20 to 30 days (including ASQ) that is acceptable.
It’s already march you think some aslq will allow unmarried couple to stay in same room? Can we also quarantine in pattaya even our arrival is in bangkok?
Appreciate for your help,
At of today, unmarried couples are still not allowed to stay in the same room. I recommend for you to check each of the listed ASQ Hotels if they manage to change this regulation.
I am exploring the possibility to do a yoga teacher training in Thailand. I would like to come from HK with a HK passport.
I would love to know if the quarantine in a resort allows me to use the facilities in the resort or does it mean I can just stay on the room. Thanks.
And is it only in Phuket that we can use the facilities such as beach and pools in the resort ?
If you would book a quarantine villa in Phuket, you will be able to use all the facilities within your own villa, since the villa is only occupied by yourself.
Hi I am travelling from USA and my wife travelling from Hong Kong, both of us reaching same day to Bangkok in separate flight. Can we both stay together in Qurantine?
Will it be ok if our landing time has difference of more than 2 hrs ?
If you have marriage certificate, you may submit a special request to your ASQ Hotel if they can place you in a family room. You may contact this hotel:
Hi, If we are travelling from low risk country do we still need to quarantine for 14 days?
As of today, ALL Thais and foreigners entering Thailand must undergo the mandatory quarantine in accredited ASQ hotels in Thailand.
I am already vaccinated. Vaccinated document is also with me. Do I still have to stay 14 days quarantine?
Yes, as of today, you will be required to undergo the mandatory quarantine. If you will travel in October-December, the quarantine might be reduced to 7 or 10 days already.
Hi REX, I am American citizens and I would like to know, what documents do I need to enter Thailand? I had received a Covid-19 vaccine already and what do I need to do to enter Thailand?
If you will be entering Thailand without a visa and you only want the visa exemption or free visa to Thailand, you can follow the process stated on this page:
You must have the following:
-ASQ Hotel booking
-Flight to Thailand and exit flight out of Thailand
-COVID 19 insurance
After receiving the COE, you can prepare the COVID 19 PCR test and Fit to Fly certificate within 72 hours before the flight.
Can I leave my alq quarantine at
00.01 on day 15 as I will have completed my 14 days quarantine
Please contact the ASQ Hotel directly regarding this special request. Each ASQ hotel in Thailand has different ways in calculating your quarantine depending on the time you arrived into Thailand.
Hello, i stay here in a ASQ 7days nowy first covid test its Negative butni cant go out!?! Bevor i flight they say me after e Negativ test, when i come here they say me 3 times in 15 days and now they say me only the last day bevor i check out.. why they do shit like this??? So i go today for a hour to the relax area they say yes or no its not my problem i habe a negativ covid test
Perhaps it is an internal policy of the ASQ Hotel. Maybe the common area can only accommodate limited number of people.
Hi Rex. Am I right to assume that you have to stay in your hotel room for the entire 14 x day quarantine period? In other words it doesn’t make sense booking into a nice resort if you can’t appreciate and use the facilities anyway? Thanks
There are ASQ Hotels that would allow you to go to a common area for an hour per day. It will be scheduled accordingly by the hotel depending on the number of days you have spend in the hotel. Some hotels will allow you to go to the garden area or pool area after 5th or 10th day.
I am a US citizen and would like to visit family who reside in Thailand May 2021.
I have both doses of COVID Vaccine and a negative test.
– Will I still have to quarantine for 2 weeks?
– Are people under quarantine in Phuket allowed to leave their rooms?
– Are you allowed to see family while in quarantine?
1. Yes, you will still undergo mandatory quarantine with or without vaccination.
2. If you book a quarantine villa, you are able to access the facilities within your own private villa.
3. No, only the nurse and quarantine staff are allowed to interact with your during quarantine.
Please constantly check with new updates, there may be changes on the number of days for the quarantine in the coming months.
Will be coming from Manila on June. Are the existing requirements would still be in place by then? As there is no visa requirement for PH travelers, how would the application for the COE differ then? Thanks.
The requirements for the COE under visa exemption of 45 days will be the same. The only difference that might happen is the number of days you need to book for quarantine. As of today, we do not know how many days will be the quarantine in June 2021.
Is there any indication from the Thai government when ASQ might be getting reduced? If they have, it would be useful to know what conditions would have to be met for quarantine to be reduced.
Yes, there has been talks about it. It might happen in April and some sources states it might happen in October. We have to wait and see in the coming weeks.
What are the fines for not respecting the mandatory quaranteen of 14 days?
The penalty for violating the COVID 19 health measures will be deportation and travel ban of 99 years.
Hi, my quaranteen in bkk, expiries in two days afterwards i want to extend my stay in other hotels in bkk than in Phuket. Do i need any proof to show or present to the hotel’s front desk after my quaranteen is over?
Normally your quarantine hotel in Bangkok will issue a letter saying you have no COVID 19. You might use it for your flight to Phuket and for your check in to other hotels. However, you may not be required to show this if you have arrived more than 15 days already in Thailand.
I want to ask im now last day in my quarantine hotel in bangkok ,and i fly to phuket for 3 weeks ,can i fly back to bangkok after 3 weeks and then go to Pattaya with taxi because there are no direct flights to pattaya now ,and do i need to self isolate or no ?
Right now, there is no problem traveling from one province to another province. You do not need to do local quarantine or self-isolation.
Good morning . On 27 of February I will arrive in Bangkok and book an hotel for quarantine. I read on Official website of Embassy that the quarantine last 14 nights (15 days). Why the hotel write me that I need to stay 15 nights (16 days)?
Perhaps it depends on the time of your arrival. Just make sure that you have booked the Quarantine Package of the hotel.
I’ve booked to travel to Phuket in November 2021. I’m staying at Banyan Tree but only for 10 nights. Then plan to travel back to the UK. I note the 14 day quarantine requirement and wondered if I would be ok to travel home after a 10 night stay?
I would recommend for you to complete the quarantine before you can leave the hotel. Are you traveling to Thailand just to stay in quarantine hotel for 10 days and fly back to the UK? It is not worth the trouble.
Maybe it is better to travel when the government propose the vaccine passport. You may be allowed to skip the quarantine and spend 10 days in Thailand holidaying.
I am due to travel 14th June 2021 from the U.K. Do you suspect the mandatory 14 days quarantine will still be in place? Should I move my trip to later in 2021 or 2022?
There is a chance that quarantine will be 7 days if you have vaccinations and 10 days without vaccinations but you have COVID 19 negative test. We have to wait whether this will be implemented in June or perhaps October 2021.
from this Thai government website https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/eng/ind_danger.php it appears that a returning Thai citizen can be quarantined in their residence.
Is this correct?
This article was from early 2020. Right now, both Thais and foreigners are required to have the mandatory quarantine at ASQ hotels (for foreigners) or the state quarantine for Thais provided by the government.
If I have had covid, do I still need quarantine?
Yes, every foreigner and every Thai person coming to Thailand with or without vaccination, had or didn’t have COVID must do the quarantine at designated hotels for 2 weeks.
Sor my STV visa application, I bought my quarantene hotel from Pattaya, but then later i noticed they are not in ASQ list and i guess they are ALQ. Is this makes any difference ?
I will land in Bangkok and Hotel name is Hotel Amber Pattaya.
Yes, it is alright. The quarantine hotels outside Bangkok are called ALQ. The Hotel Amber will provide you a private car from Bangkok Airport to the hotel correct?
Is there any possibility of an unmarried couple who already live together in their home country being able to share room or have adjoining rooms?
Yes, you may request for that setup from your ASQ hotel. It is one of those special requests the some travelers do. For this type of arrangment, you may check with this hotel:
Is there any quarantine hotels in Udon Thani? I work for a humanitarian organization currently in Lebanon and the organization is moving me to Laos, Due to no flights into Laos they are looking at getting me across the friendship bridge at Nong Kai.
As of now, the COE or certificate of entry is only issued for those traveling by AIR. If you are traveling by air, the flights are only allowed in Bangkok. Therefore, you must do the quarantine in Bangkok.
I’ll be moving im quarantine tomorrow. I have been developing wisdom tooth pain from last 2 days. If it persist, will I be able to get treatment during quarantine.?
I believe the partner hospital of your ASQ hotel may be able to arrange that. This may be done at the hotel or perhaps schedule it after the quarantine.
Hello, if a Thai citizen traveling from a US territory receives the two covid vaccine shot and covid negative testing paperwork do they still have to quarantine upon arrival?
Yes, a Thai person needs to do the mandatory quarantine even with or without vaccination. The Thai national may choose the free quarantine or the paid quarantine hotels.
I’m booking my ASQ hotel on an online retailer but I want to make sure I’ll receive the ASQ benefits. Will the hotel automatically provide me with the ASQ benefits if I don’t book it direct? I plan on booking 15 days for my quarantine.
Right now, only Agoda is the legitimate seller.
Hi, Can my sister and me stay same room? We are sisters.
I believe you may request for a family room. To check for ASQ hotel with Family Room, please check this link:
Hello, If I book the hotel on an online retailer will I receive the ASQ benefits? The hotel is on this list as an ASQ hotel so are the benefits automatic?
You can book the Quarantine package through the hotel directly or through Agoda, but you must choose quarantine package.
I am a health professional , trip to thiland is for exam purposes as it is not possible in my country , i m inoculated with both doses of COVID vaccine , is there still need to quarantined for 14 days
Yes, all foreigners and Thais entering Thailand will undergo mandatory quarantine. There has been unofficial reports that vaccinated travelers may be allowed to enter Thailand without quarantine perhaps in the 3rd quarter of 2021.
I am a United States citizen with an APEC card. Do I need to apply for the Entry Permit? Will I have to Quarantine for 14 days? Will I need to add the app and get the Insurance?
For APEC Card holders, you are permitted to stay for 90 days upon entry. However, you must obtain a Certificate of Entry or COE from the Thai Embassy. You can apply for the COE online and you need to have COVID 19 insurance, ASQ Hotel booking and flight to Thailand. You also need to download the ThailandPlus application on your mobile.
My GF is in Bangkok, if she visits me in the UK, does she have to go through quarantine on the way back?
Yes, all Thais and foreigners entering Thailand must undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine. At least for now. We are not sure if this will be lifted in the coming months or not.
Yes she does. However, I believe the quarantine package is free for Thai.
Yes, the Thai government is allowing Thais to stay in special accommodation. I recommend for her to check with Thai Embassy in London to arrange that.
I am married in a same sex relationship. We got married in Belgium and we have official marriage certificate acknolwedged by Belgium state. Can I and my thai husband stay together in the room since we’re married, thus gay couple?
I would recommend for you to contact the ASQ hotel directly so that you know if you can book for one room by showing a copy of marriage certificate that has been legalised or certified by the Thai Embassy in Belgium. For the ASQ Hotel, you may check this page: https://www.thaiembassy.com/asq-hotels/courtyard-by-marriott-bangkok
I would like to enter Thailand using STV and have gotten Pfizer vaccine recently. Thus, can I opt out from hotel quarantine or at least be placed on home quarantine upon my arrival in Thailand.
At this time, it is not possible to do that. You still need to do the mandatory quarantine. It has been proposed that on the last quarter of 2021, a vaccine passport may be allowed and avoid the quarantine.
Good morning Rex,
I’m doing now my ASQ quarantine in bangkok, my final destination is koh samui on the same day of my check out of ASQ. If i go directly from the ASQ hotel to the airport to flight to koh Samui, do i need a negativ test or any restriction from the ban in bangkok.
At this time, there is no news that Samui will require for you to do a self-quarantine. I suggest that you keep the release certificate or your latest COVID test result in case someone will ask for it in Samui.
Right now I’m stying in a ASQ hotel in Bangkok,
If we travel directly from Bangkok To Ko Samui, do we need to go in Quarantaine again?
Right now, there is no need for a quarantine in Samui if you fly from Bangkok and you have a negative result on your COVID 19 test provided by the hotel.
Hello, I have 10 years old flying from Philippines alone. is there quarantine hotel available in Phuket? Also parents are allowed to stay with him during quarantine?
I do not think that a child will be allowed to travel alone at this time. There are ASQ hotels in Phuket but only for flights that will arrive in Phuket.
My flight lands in Bangkok, and then 4 hours later I go from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. I’ve read that the BP Chiang Mai Hotel allows ALQ, however I do not see this hotel in the drop down box for the COE form. Am I allowed to quarantine here?
If not, do I have to change my flight to land in Bangkok, quarantine there, and then come to Chiangmai once my quarantine is over?
It will now show because your international flight lands in Bangkok and not in Chiang Mai. Are you flight on the same airplane from Bangkok to Chiang Mai? if not, you must book for ASQ Hotel in Bangkok. You may check this page: https://www.thaiembassy.com/asq-hotels/courtyard-by-marriott-bangkok
AFTER QUARANTINE IN BKK CAN I STAY 10 DAYS MORE IN BANGKOK AND THEN GO TO PHUKET)
Yes, you can definitely stay in Bangkok before you travel around Thailand. After the quarantine, you can move to the normal rooms or you can move to another hotels.
Can Elderly (55 years old) and her caretaker stay in same room? boy friend and girl friend?
Only married couples or parents and children can stay in the same room.
Can A mum share an AsQ room with her 21 year old daughter? Will have lived together in UK.
They can request a connecting room or a room next to each other.
Hi, I want my fiance to fly into Thailand by mid-feb and I am already in Thailand. Is it possible for us to quarantine together in the same room? (eventhough we are not flying from the same place, one of us already in Thailand)
I regret to inform you that it is not possible for non-married couples to stay in the same room.
I live in New York, USA and have booked a trip to Thailand in June last year.
My flight is scheduled for February 25, 2021.
Could you, please, tell me if I can enter Thailand and stay for 3 weeks without having a mandatory quarantine for 14 days if I have recently been vaccinated against COVID-19 ?
For all travellers, Thais and Foreigners, vaccinated or not vaccinated, you must undergo mandatory quarantine. Should you wish not to do quarantine, you may have to wait to travel to Thailand by end of 2021.
Hello , i stay in Bangkok for asq now until 25 januari. Do i need special paper to travel to Burriram after the quarantaine?
No, you do not need special permission. The letter confirming your last COVID test is negative will be enough for you to travel to Buriram.
I would like to do my quarantine on Phuket as it is my final destination. Currently there are no direct flights to Phuket. If I take flight with connection in Suvarnabhumi airport, am I still allowed to transit in Suvarnabhumi to proceed to my ASQ/ALQ destination?
No. You cannot do the quarantine in Phuket if your flight arrives in Bangkok. You must do the quarantine in Bangkok. If you wish to do quarantine in Phuket, you must book an international commercial flight or private flight that arrives in Phuket. Please check with Qatar and Emirates for the future flights to Phuket.
I am US citizen and plan travel to Chiang Mai via Bangkok. The arrival time at Bangkok airport is midnight and need to stay over in Bangkok or hotel near airport for the next morning flight to CM. CM has BP ChiangMai hotel as the ALQ hotel. Can I get quarantined in Chiang Mai instead of in Bangkok? Also, during quarantine can I have visitor to visit me? Thank you
You can do your quarantine in Chiang Mai if your international flight arrives in Chiang Mai. If your flight arrives in Bangkok, you must do your quarantine in Bangkok.
If I want to choose an ASQ in Pattaya, am I allowed at the end of the 15 days to travel back to BKK? Am I at risk of another self quarantine in BKK?
If you quarantine in Pattaya and you travel to Bangkok, yes, it is not a problem right now. Pattaya and Bangkok are no longer in the red zone.
can i be quarantined in chumphon?
At this time, there is no ASQ facility in Chumphon since it is too far to travel from Bangkok on a private car with special requirements to protect you and your driver from infection. You can quarantine in Pattaya, that is possible if you arrive at Suvarnabhumi Airport.
I need to travel from CHIANG MAI TO SUVARNABHUM. I will be in Sukumvit for one day. Do i need to quarantine myself after returning back to chiangmai?
I recommend for you to check with your local authorities. There are provinces now that would require 14-day self isolation if you have previously travel in the red zone provinces.
I think my question got erased like some others before it so I take a screenshot this time to preserve it. My question is simple – my Thai fiance and myself co-habit together outside of Thailand. We live together 100% of the time (I work from home due to Coronavirus) and we travel together to Thailand in February so why should we stay apart for quarantine. Surely this makes no sense – in these circumstances can we stay together in ASQ ? Appreciate your response this time please. I may be able to get local embassy to vouch for us or give us a letter or something to verify our status.
You may contact the ASQ hotel and present your proof of common-law partnership if you are not married.
Hi. If i stay The quarantee in Phuket, after The 15 day can i travel to Samui and Koh Phangan?
At the moment, yes you can travel to Phuket to Samui. However, we cannot be sure in the coming days or weeks if a self-quarantine will be required when you travel from one province to another.
If i take flight to Helsinki-Doha-Bangkok-Samui. Is that possible and after that i stay the 15 day quarantee in Samui? And does Samui have the ASQ hotels?
If your Qatar airlines flight will fly from Bangkok to Samui and you do not disembark the aircraft in Bangkok, then you may do the quarantine in Samui.
Are there ASQ hotels available in Chiang Mai? If not and I quarantine in Bangkok, am I free to fly to Chiang Mai after without an additional 14 day quarantine?
At the moment, there is none, because there are no international flights landing there. You can quarantine in Bangkok is a hotel and when you move to Chiang Mai, you might need to self-quarantine.
Hi I am a British National who will fly in from Dubai…
If I fly into Thailand and my girlfriend flys in from the Phillipines … if I can find flights that land roughly around the same time can we quarantine together in the same room? Thankyou
Yes, you can quarantine in the same hotel but you cannot quarantine in the same room. Only married couple can quarantine in one room.
WHy do you always erase my question? It is a legit one. What you do is not polite. I saw that the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has lot better price in booking dot com. My question is: if I proceed my booking thru them, will it be accepted at the airport from the Thai authorities? Be transparent here because I am starting to think that you are working to profit from foreighners.
The ASQ hotels are only available on Agoda or you can book directly through the hotel.
Can we book ourself to one of the hotel listed in Phuket by using booking dot com as the price is a lot better?
If you want to book an ASQ hotel, you need to book directly with the hotel or you can use Agoda.
If you want to book the hotel after quarantine, you can use Booking.com
I just want to ask if both foreigners from different country can enter Thailand on March from US and Philippines without securing non-immigrant visa? Is visa -free for first 30 days still in effect or visa is required now in any case ? Should they be quarantined separately once arrived together in Bangkok? Thank you.
Yes, US and Philippine passport holders can get 45 days visa exemption (including 15 days on quarantine) through this page:https://coethailand.mfa.go.th/regis/index?checkconfirm=true
You must choose “Medium Term Visitor- Visa Exemption” in the selection.
I see that hotel offers are – for 15 nights 16 days..
And i read 14 days needed in quarantine.
How many night do I need to book for the quarantine?
If it is 14 days – why do the hotels only offer 16 days?
Some hotels are offering 14 nights 15 days ASQ package or 15 nights 16 days packages. Just choose the one that has less ASQ package. You cannot oblige a hotel to decrease the number of nights if they only offer more days. You may choose another hotel.
Do you have any current details/information about any tracking devices (phone app, wrist band, etc) being required for visitors? What are they using, if anything? Is it used only for a limited time period or throughout the entire term of visa? Is it for all visa types?
Once you have completed your mandatory 15-day quarantine, there is no tracking device or wrist band being required. You are free to travel.
will there still be a quarantine if i have a proov of covid-19 vaccine and a negative pcr?
Yes, the quarantine is mandatory for all travelers to Thailand. There is no indication that the quarantine will be lifted soon.
I have plan to flight Thailand next February or March, flight landing Bangkok. Can I take quarantine hotel in Pattaya?
Yes, if your flight lands in Bangkok, you may book a quarantine hotel in Bangkok or Pattaya.
Do you need to pay for the Quarantine Hotel before you know if your visa will pass?
If this is the case, then my question is: If your visa is rejected, will you be refunded the hotel cost?
Most ASQ hotels does not ask for full payment. Most of them will ask for the 10% to 50% deposit until you get the visa and COE.
Yes, the hotel may refund the deposit if your COE was rejected or you tested positive before the flight.
Please check directly with the hotel because they may have different policies.
I will be under going quarantine in a ASQ in January upon my return Thailand. Can my Thai wife (who is already residing in Thailand, and not travelling with me from overseas) stay with me in ASQ for the whole quarantine period?
No, I do not think the hotel will allow that. You should contact your ASQ hotel regarding this request. maybe they will allow it if you pay for her ASQ stay also and you buy her a COVID 19 insurance.
Can you explain about the quarantine process? Are you confined to your room and if not what are the rules during this period?
Thanks very much
There are 110 ASQ hotels and they have different policies regarding quarantine. These set of FAQs by Anantara Hotel is useful:
I wish to purchase a retirement property in Pattaya. May I interact with real estate companies while in quarantine?
Must I remain in my room for the entire 14 days?
Yes, you definitely have to stay in your room. However, you can set up a video conference with a lawyer or real estate company should you need assistance.
If a Thai national is returning back, can she qurantine at her residence?
No. She has to do quarantine in a hotel or a quarantine facility provided by the government.
Hello, I am planning to visit my wife in Roi Et in January. I noticed that Roi Et does not have an ASQ listing. Is it possible for me to stay in Buriram? Thanks, Robert
You will do the quarantine in Bangkok if you flight lands in Bangkok. However, if you wish to do the quarantine in Buriram, may I ask if your ASQ Hotel in Buriram will send a special car equipped with PPE to Bangkok airport?
we are 2 canadians travelling together to Thailand end January 2021. Are we able to stay in the same ASQ room ? or do we need to have each our separate rooms ?
Only married couples are allowed to stay in one room or parent and children.
I’m staying in a ASQ hotel in Bangkok and paid in advance for 16 days/ 15 nights stay. Now I read here only 15 days/14 nights are compulsory.
I don’t mind to pay 1 more day and night since it was the only offer, but could I ask to leave after 14 days/ 14 nights, if my 3rd PCR test is negative ?
Did you check the number of days and nights before you signed up for this package? I would recommend to complete the ASQ package with the hotel.
Hi, my quarantine is due to end 16th/2359. Therefore assume i may check out 0001/17th. is this correct please
You need to forward this question directly to your ASQ Hotel.
We have booked a ASQL hotel in Phuket . We arrive in Bangkok and have a connecting flight to Phuket with in a few hours. Will we be allowed to take this connecting flight ?
Is that a private jet provided by the hotel equipped with PPEs? Please know that you are not allowed to take a public flight from Bangkok to Phuket.
If you want to have quarantine in Phuket you must book the Emirates or Qatar flights that land in Phuket.
As many countries have already eased the quarantine process, want to check how long will the 14 day Quarantine be mandatory in Thailand. Is there any plan to ease the restrictions in Jan 2021?
At the moment, Thailand has no plans on changing the number of days for the mandatory quarantine. It remains 14 nights 15 days.
Hi where can one find the prices for the asq hotel packages ? Thanks
On this webpage, you see the list of quarantine hotels. You may search for these hotel names on Google or Bing and you go to their website and check their ASQ packages.

If the service you want to complain is about the staff, the food etc, you can complain to the hotel manager. If the complaint is regarding health issue, you may contact the hospital affiliated to this ASQ hotel.

My thai fiancee is returning to Thailand on Friday morning. Can you please let us know where she can stay in a state quarantine hotel. Thank you
The list of hotels on this page are paid hotels for quarantine. Does she want the free quarantine? She needs to contact her embassy before coming to Thailand.
Can I obtain a tourist visa from Seoul, South Korea although I only have an American passport?
I regret to inform you that we do not have information for the STV, TR visa and COE application in Seoul. The embassy has not updated their website so it is best for you to call the embassy directly.
My girlfriend is Thai national she is due to fly from Spain via Zurich with Swiss Airlines on 12th December.
Dos she have to pay to stay in quarantine hotel please
If she choose ASQ, yes she has to pay for it because ASQ is not free. If she wants the state quarantine, she needs to check with the Thai Embassy and perhaps register for the free SQ.
Thanks Rex, I have communicate with Thai Embassy in Singapore. However, they have no idea on the Multiple Reentry Visa on PR extension of 1 year after it is due. They encourage me to fly back to Thailand to extend it. Reason it seems that Nation News reported that ASQ was not safe there. Few days ago a French woman got Covid19 during her ASQ stay. “Can you please provide me the link that said Thai PR validity extension within 1 year of expiry”. Many Thanks
That has been announced in the July 2020 visa amnesty notification from the immigration.
I am an Israeli citizen and I am interested in coming to Thailand in December for a period greater than 60 days. I will be able to get STV or a tourist visa?
The Special Tourist Visa or STV is not available in Israel. However, this November the Thai Embassy in Tel Aviv has announced the requirements for the normal 60-day tourist visa. Please check this page and please call the Thai embassy to start your application:
Is there specific menu for 1 years old baby?
Also, is it possible for my husband to bring special food for the baby at the lobby?
Yes, you may request the hotel for specific menu for yourself and your baby. Yes, visitors may bring food for you but there’s limited number of things they can bring. I recommend for you to check with the hotel that you choose.
I am an Australian looking to enter Thailand on the long-stay visa, up to 90 days and hopefully renewable after that time period.
I am looking at AQS in Buriram.
I believe there is no direct international airport in Buriram.
If there is no direct flight to Buriram, how do get to Buriram and undergo my 14-day quarantine?
This would be possible if you or your ASQ hotel in Buriram can arrange a private flight from Bangkok after your international arrival to Buriram Airport and then to your ASQ.
If this is not possible, you need to book an ASQ hotel in Bangkok and then proceed to Buriram on a normal domestic flight.
We are American and wanting to come to Thailand for three months beginning January 3. Will we be able to come on either the STV Or 60 Day Tourist Visa?
The STV or special tourist visa is not available in the US. However the 60-day tourist visa is now available to be obtained at the Thai Embassy in Washington DC.
I am a Thai PR and my Multiple Re-emtry permit will expire on end Nov 2020. What happens if I miss on Reentering Thailand. The reason is due to hassle in travelling requirements during this challenging time. Will the Immigration of Thailand extend of the due date? Or I must enter Thailand before my Re-entry permit due. Thanks
At the moment you are allowed to apply for the certificate of entry and enter Thailand. However if you are unable to travel, please get in touch with the nearest Thai embassy for more information, I believe there was an announcement that you can travel within 1 year after expiry.
I am a Thai PR Holder and will be travelling this coming End Nov. Which Hotel have the lowest price stay for ASQ in Bangkok.
At the moment there are 100+ ASQ hotels already. The cheapest package might be 27,000 to 28,000 THB. We cannot recommend a specific hotel but you may check the list and contact the hotels.

Good day. The Visa on Arrival has been suspended and the Thai Special Tourist Visa or STV is not available in Europe. The Thai government is tapping the tourists from Asia Pacific first. I recommend for you to keep checking with the Thai Embassy or Consulate in Romania for updates.
I’ am a Filipino National currently working here in Doha, Qatar. Im planning to take exam in Pearson Vue Test Center in Thailand by January 27. Do I need to get Thailand Visa?

Hello, my Panrajaa is visiting me in Germany and sadly have to return on November 25th. She was just telling me, that she has to change the flight, because the Lufthansa flight at 29th/30th of November would not qualify it’s passengers for a a state quarantine any longer. She told me that she would have to change the flight – costs of about 1.000 € – or would have to book a ASQ. I couldn’t understand the procedure showing on some websites she has pointed on. Is she right in interpretations the changed rules from starting of November?
Unfortunately we cannot advise you about the free quarantine for the Thais. We mostly deal with foreigners so we can just advise you about the paid ASQ. I think it is cheaper for you to book her in an ASQ hotel rather changing the flight for 1,000 Euro. The ASQ hotels starts at 27,000-28,000 THB or even less.
Dear Sir or Madam, I am a Swiss citizen married to a Thai wife. We would like to return to Thailand in mid-January. I have already made the required reservations for my entry visa, etc. with the Thai Embassy in Switzerland.
Can we fly to Phuket (flights available with Qatar Airways or Turkish Airways from Zurich) and do ALSQ Quarantine there, instead of Bangkok?
Thank you for clarifying.
Yes, you can fly to Phuket directly if there are flights arriving in Phuket. I believe today there was Emirates flight that landed in Phuket already. If you land in Phuket (without transit in Bangkok), you can undergo 14-day quarantine in the accredited hotels or resorts in Phuket. The ASQ hotels in Phuket are more expensive than those in Bangkok.
I’m planning on booking a flight from Europe to Chiang Mai. The booking says there will be a stop in Bangkok before continuing on to Chiang Mai. My question is, how does quarantine work in this case? Should I just book a flight to Bangkok and stay there for 2 weeks of quarantine or can I travel straight to Chiang Mai? FYI: I’m a foreign exchange student to Chiang Mai University.
You have to do your 14-day quarantine in Bangkok before you can fly to Chiang Mai. Unless your quarantine hotel in Chiang Mai can arrange a private jet from Bangkok to Chiang Mai with you as the only passenger to avoid any contact with local people.
Hi, I’m from Spain and I would like to go Tailand. Is it forbinned? where I can see this registrition?

Yes, US and Philippine passport holders can get 45 days visa exemption (including 15 days on quarantine) through this page:https://coethailand.mfa.go.th/regis/index?checkconfirm=true
You must choose “Medium Term Visitor- Visa Exemption” in the selection.
thanks for your answer. I think the best way to go is to get a business visa at the Thai embassy here in the Netherlands, right? I have been doing business with Thai companies for over 15 years and it is urgent for me to be able to visit them after almost 1 year not having been able to do so. What are my chances to obtain a business visa? Thanks in advance for your answer.
Best regards, Robert.
Yes, it is possible to get a Non B visa under business. Please check this page for more information:
entering Thailand through BKK and then travel directly on to CNX to quarantine in a hotel there, is there any possibility to do that?
Thanks, Robert V.
I believe that you need an international flight to land if Chiang Mai if you wish to make the quarantine in Chiang Mai. If you arrive in Bangkok, you must quarantine in Bangkok because from the airport, you will be brought directly to your hotel by private car. If you land in Bangkok and travel to Chiang Mai, will it be a private plane? There should be no other passengers since you will be a risk to the domestic passengers.
1. I am Indonesian, but currently working in Philippines, can I come to Thailand with ASQ visa?

2. You need to have a proper visa in order to enter Thailand. Please check this page for the possible visas that you can apply for:

This page has been created for you to check the respective hotels enumerated on this page. You need to contact directly the hotels of your choice based on the list.
Can you confirm if Citrus Sukhumvit 11 is a ASQ hotel? They claim on their website as well as other pages claim to be ASQ hotel
Yes, Citrus Sukhumvit 11 is an ASQ hotel. It is one of the new hotels that was accredited recently. We have not updated out list on this page. Thank you for your information.
Is it correct that people over 60 years of age has to do a hospital check the first night in ASQ? One ASQ hotel said my wife andI had to pay 3500 bath extra because we are 62 and therefore needed a hospital check the first night.
I have not heard of this particular policy from the government. Perhaps it is an internal policy of the hotel. I suggest for you to check with other ASQ hotels. Right now there are over 100 ASQ hotels in Bangkok alone.
have been reading that need T8 form with me on entering Thailand, can the Embassy email one to me?
is the Pattaya ASQ approved yet?
You may download TM8 on this page: https://image.mfa.go.th/mfa/0/umufy3EgqL/T8new.pdf
Also, TM8 is also available as a mobile app that you can download when you arrive at the airport.
I believe Pattaya has one ASQ hotel already.
Please could someone advise.
I would like to apply for state Quarantine not (ASQ) for my Thai partner to land in December, Is this still free for all Thai Citizens.?
The Thai nationals are given 2 options. They can go for the state quarantine which is free or they can go to ASQ hotel quarantine which is not free.
Hi will you be quarantined in the hotel room when in an ASQ hotel? Or is there to some extent freedom of movement within the hotel (e.g. gym use etc)
It depends on the ASQ Hotel that you choose. There are days that you will be allowed to the pool area or perhaps the gym. I recommend for you to check with your hotel before booking to know what facilities they offer you during your stay.
Within the 90 days of visa can I travel outside and come back without doing the quarantine?
If you travel outside Thailand and you plan to return, you need to do ASQ quarantine again because you have exposed yourself in an infected country.
What about people coming from Laos?
If you are asking if the travelers from Laos will have to undergo a quarantine upon arrival, the answer is yes. If you are asking if the travelers from Laos can apply for the STV or special tourist visa, I believe that they can however, I recommend that you call the Thai Embassy in Vientiane to check about this.
I would have liked a visa immigrant O for 3 months, my year visa expires on Nov 17 and am booking a flight to Thailand.
Have been married to my Thai wife for many years, but due to the corona epidemic I cannot go back, I will probably go back on Oct 30th.
I am Dutch living in Heerlen Limburg so it is easier for me to go to Essen than to Amsterdam. Awaiting your reply, greetings Robert Italiaander
If you have already a valid non immigrant O visa, please apply for the certificate of entry on this page: https://coethailand.mfa.go.th/regis/step?language=en
