Thailand Pass


Thailand Pass

Entering Thailand is not as easy as before COVID-19 existed. Now, there are multiple travel restrictions present, and travelers had to gather numerous required documents. Included in the required documents is the Certificate of Entry (COE), a certificate required to be obtained by anyone who will enter Thailand which requires time, effort to process and patience.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) in collaboration with the Digital Government Development Agency (DGDA) is currently developing the Thailand Pass System to replace the Certificate of Entry (COE) system.

With the proposed full reopening of Thailand, along with its easing restrictions and the goal to revitalize the economy, Thai Authorities are planning to replace the slow-paced COE system with a faster Thailand Pass system to be used starting on November 1, 2021.

What Is Thailand Pass

The Thailand Pass system is a free-of-charge web-based system designed to make the documentation process of travelers entering Thailand more efficient than the Certificate of Entry application.

Just like the Certificate of Entry, it will collect data for entry forms required, but what makes it better than the Certificate of Entry (COE) is that it collects both travel and health information like vaccine certificates and it will help facilitate the filing of the TM6 and T8 Forms.

Through the Thailand Pass system, the expected documents and other paperwork requirements imposed on by the COVID-19 will be addressed.

The goal of the new Thailand Pass is to help support the country’s “Ease of Travel” system after it reopens and to expedite the process of filling out information and uploading travel documents.

Who Can Apply for the Thailand Pass

The Thailand Pass is required for all travelers whether Thai or foreigners based on the following travel restrictions:

  1. Fully Vaccinated from the Listed Countries
    Fully vaccinated travelers, both Thai and foreigners will be allowed to enter Thailand without mandatory quarantine or sandbox stay. They only need to stay for 1 night in an ASQ or SHA+ Hotel while they wait for the COVID 19 RT-PCR test result that was taken upon arrival.  The quarantine-free program is initially available for low-risk countries, and currently, there are 63 countries on the list. You must have stayed in these countries for at least 21 days before traveling to Thailand (except for those who traveled from Thailand). Unvaccinated children below 12 years old may travel with vaccinated parents without quarantine.List of Eligible Countries for No Quarantine
  2. Fully Vaccinated under Sandbox Program (for all countries)
    Fully vaccinated travelers who are coming from non-listed countries are eligible to enter Thailand without quarantine. They must enter Thailand under the Sandbox Programs such as Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Phuket or Samui Sandbox. They are required to spend a minimum of 7 nights in an accredited SHA+ Hotel in these Sandbox areas before they will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand. Unvaccinated children above 12 years old but below 18 years old may travel with vaccinated parents without quarantine under the sandbox program.
  3. Non-Vaccinated under Quarantine Program
    Non-vaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers are still allowed to travel to Thailand. They must undergo a mandatory quarantine of 10 nights in an accredited ASQ or AQ quarantine hotel before they will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand.

What are the Requirements for the Thailand Pass

In support of the “Ease of Travel”, there are only a few requirements that one will need to be able to obtain a QR entry code and enter Thailand. Listed below are the requirements:

  • Passport
  • Vaccination Certificate or Card
  • COVID-19 Health Insurance Certificate
  • Confirmed ASQ hotel booking or Confirmed SHA+ hotel booking (with pre-booked RT PCR test)
  • Flight Booking

How to Apply for Thailand Pass

The Thailand Pass System is a QR code generating system.

To obtain a QR entry code or Thailand Pass ID, travelers will have to:

  • Register at Thailand Pass web portal
  • Input personal details
  • Upload the required documents
  • Receive a confirmation email after registration (within seconds after registration)
  • Wait for the Thailand Pass approval (within an hour or up to 7 days)

And if approved, you will receive an email of your QR Entry Code or Thailand Pass ID which you will use upon entering Thailand.

1. Apply for Thailand Pass by Yourself

You may apply for the Thailand Pass directly on the MFA website: https://tp.consular.go.th/

If you have already applied by yourself and you need to check the status, please go to: https://tp.consular.go.th/en/check-status

2. Thailand Pass Application Service by Siam Legal

Application for the Thailand Pass is free-of-charge and you do not need any assistance to apply for it. However, there may be instances where some individuals may voluntarily choose a paid service provider such as a law firm to provide consultation, assist them to prepare their documents, and submit them on their behalf. Individuals may encounter problems with their documents that are not being uploaded properly or some information or documents that are deemed unacceptable to the Thai embassy or consulate that may cause delay or rejection of your Thailand Pass application, so it may be helpful to retain a service provider to assist you with the application. These paid Thailand Pass services offered by Siam Legal are listed below.

 

How long does it take to Process the Thailand Pass

The processing time for the Thailand Pass application is 5 to 7 days depending on the Thai Embassy or Consulate where the application has been submitted. It is recommended to apply for the Thailand pass at least 7 days before your intended departure.

Recommended COVID Insurance

Based on experience, the common problem for  Thailand Pass applications being rejected and travelers being denied to board their flight is that some insurance policies are not properly worded. Your COVID 19 insurance must expressly state that it covers up to 50,000 USD medical expenses including COVID 19 and it must cover your whole stay in Thailand. The Thailand Pass system only accepts one attachment therefore it is important to have a one-page Certificate of Insurance with all the required information.

I have tried emailing support@tp.consular.go.th with all the required detailed such as full name, passport number, and arrival date but still no response from them. Should I re-apply or just wait?

    Hello,
    We are Canadian citizens, living in Canada that are fully vaccinated and plan on traveling to Phuket under the test and go.
    On our journey to Phuket we plan on staying about a week Saudia Arabia and then 3 days in Dubai, which are both on the approved list.
    Since our direct flight to Phuket will originate in Dubai, we will put that in the Thai pass application.
    1) wanted to confirm if the staying in both Saudia (7 days) and Dubai (3 days) prior to Phuket qualify under the 21 days stay for the Thailand pass?
    2)Also, can you please clarify if Canadian citizens require a visa for an under 30 day visit for tourist purposes only to Thailand? The Thai site says no, but I have read conflicting info.

    Thanks for clarifying!

    • November 22, 2021

      Hi TI,

      1) That is okay as long as you have spent at least 21 consecutive in a low-risk country(s), you will be qualified for Test and Go.
      2) Canadian passport holders are visa exempted for 30 days as long as the purpose of visit is solely for tourism.

      Thank you.

    My query concerns the identification information required when producing a vaccination certificate as part of the Thailand Pass procedure. COVID passes issued within the UK do not specify passport number, full name or nationality, as required by the Thailand Pass procedure. Is this likely to be a problem, please? Thank you for your expertise.

    We plan to travel to Phuket from Switzerland with transit in Bangkok and have chosen Sandbox Programme. Would there be a Transit hall where we could check in our luggage from Bangkok to Phuket (since we will be flying with 2 different airline) and could we do the local PCR test in Phuket directly (i.e. not in Bangkok) ?

    Many thanks for your feedback

    • November 19, 2021

      Hi Pfeffer,

      Unfortunately you are required to do the Sandbox Program in your first arrival city in Thailand before you can travel to Phuket. Otherwise you would have to get a flight that lands in Phuket directly.

    Good day! I would like to confirm if Bermuda (Sovereign State of United Kingdom) is included in the “List of Eligible Countries for No Quarantine”? Am I safe to assume that since it is a UK territory, fully vaccinated travelers from Bermuda will be allowed to enter Thailand with the quarantine-free program? I hope you could provide a prompt and helpful answer.

      Unfortunately Bermuda is not on the list of low-risk countries and you are not exempted from quarantine. You can however participate in the Sandbox Program where you have to spend 7 days in a specific area. The Sandbox areas include Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya, islands, and most tourist destinations.

Two questions: 1) If I stay airside at BKK can I continue on to Phuket the same day without testing and receive my test at the Phuket airport? 2) Since I have a 12 hour layover/connection in Bangkok, is it possible to book a room for the day at a BKK airport Test & Go hotel, receive my (presumably) negative test, and board my flight that same night continuing to Phuket?

      Hi Jamie,

      No, you must do Test and Go at a hotel in Bangkok before you are allowed to travel to Phuket. The test results will take a day to complete and you will most likely need to spend a night in Bangkok and leave in the noon next day. Please check with an AQ/SHA+ hotel for more information.

      Thank you.

    Dear Sir

    Can you please advise if you are aware of how to resolve booking problems for the RT-PCR test through thailandpsas.com. I have tried many times and continue to to be told: “9055: Your payment session has expired, please return to merchant page and attempt payment again.”

    Thank You

    How long is the Thai Pass App valid? I travel to Thailand by end of January! Can I apply for that ThaiPass now?

    • November 17, 2021

      Dear Ernest,

      Good day.
      The Thailand Pass is valid for travel based on the date of arrival stated in the QR code. However, in case of flight cancellation or delayed flight, the Thailand Pass will remain valid within 72 hours from the original flight time. You may apply for the Thailand Pass as early as 30 to 45 days before your travel date.
      Thank you.

    Hi, is there any reason why any of my questions I post get deleted EVERY time? They are valid, sensible questions which makes it very frustrating

    Hi, do I need to apply for a Thai Pass if I am only transiting via Thailand between Australia and South Korea? I will not be leaving Bangkok airport.

    Thanks.

    • November 17, 2021

      Dear Junior,

      Good day.
      No, you do not need a Thailand Pass if you are transiting for less than 24 hours and you do not need to clear immigration or passport control. You only need a COVID test and insurance for transiting in Bangkok Airport.
      Thank you.

    To qualify for “exemption to quarantine” it says you must have been in a listed country for 21 consecutive days. If I have returned from a trip to the USA, can I fly to Thailand 18 days later, given both USA and UK are on the list of eligible countries for no quarantine? I am fully vaccinated.

    • November 18, 2021

      Hi Stewart,

      Yes that is okay and you are eligible to do Test and Go.

      Thank you.

    Hi,

    I am fully vaccinated and from one of the eligible countries for NO Quarantine. My main destination is Phuket. I am confused if I should select Phukhet sanbox program to apply for Thailand pass or I can choose the ” Test and Go ” ? My reason is to avoid the mandatory 7 nights hotel stay under Phuket Sandbox program before traveling to Bangkok

    thank you

    • November 18, 2021

      Hi RC,

      If you are fully vaccinated and have spent at least 21 consecutive days in a low-risk country you can participate in Test and Go where you have to spend one night at an AQ/SHA+ hotel to await your RT-PCR test results.

      Thank you.

    Hi,
    if i am travelling through SINGAPORE and staying there for a few days prior to BKK arrival does that make me still eligible for the quarantine free period in Thailand? I am flying from SYD – SIN – BKK. The rules say 21 days in the nominated countries qualify but unsure if that means if you have to be 21 days in each country ?
    thanks

    • November 18, 2021

      Hi Ramona,

      Yes you are eligible for Test and Go.

      Thank you.

    Hi.
    I will be applying for 60 days visa, from Canada.
    Do I apply first for the visa or Thailand pass code?
    Thank you.

    • November 18, 2021

      Hi James,

      You have to apply for both. A visa will permit you to stay in Thailand for more than the 30 day visa free period whilst a Thailand Pass is a travel document that grants you entry into Thailand.

      Thank you.

    Can I buy Covid-19 medical insurance upon landing at Bangkok ?

    • November 17, 2021

      Dear Yan,

      Good day.
      Unfortunately that is not possible. You need the insurance when you apply for Thailand Pass. You cannot travel to Thailand without Thailand Pass.
      Thank you.

    do you have to have a direct flight to Thailand or not.

    • November 16, 2021

      Dear Bob,

      Good day.
      Yes, there are direct flight to Thailand from UK, Singapore, UAE, Qatar, Austria, Switzerland, Japan, Korea, Germany, France, The Netherlands and other countries. If you are from the UK, you can choose, Thai Airways or even British Airways.
      Thank you.

      Hi Bob, no you don’t need to fly direct. I asked the Thai consulate in London and you’re permitted to transit. I asked the consulate specifically about transiting via Dubai en route from London. I’ve since found information on the Royal Thai embassy London website that indicates some restrictions such as stopover time needing to be less than 12 hours, and you must not go through security/ immigration control during the stopover. You are permitted to transit through a non-listed country.
