Thailand Pass


Thailand Pass

 

Update:

Thailand Pass system will temporarily suspend new application or registration  for the Test and Go and Sandbox Programs  (except Phuket Sandbox), starting from 00.00 hrs. on 22 December 2021 until further notice.

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 7 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

If you already applied and you still did not get the Thailand Pass or you were rejected, please email: tfcovid19@mfa.go.th and foreignvac@gmail.com

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.

      Dear Shay,

      Good day.
      You need to stay overnight in Bangkok before you can travel to other parts of Thailand. At this time, domestics transfer is not permitted. If you did not get your COE yet, you need to apply for the Thailand Plus on Monday.

    When I get Thailand Pass do I still need a O retired tourist visa to stay 90 day

    • October 29, 2021

      Dear John,

      Good day.
      The Thailand Pass is not a visa. It is a travel pass only. If you need to stay in Thailand for 90 days you need to check what available visas you can apply or obtain. You can apply for the 90-day non immigrant visa or the 60-day TR visa which you can extend for another 30 days. The application for the visa is a separate application, you can go to https://thaievisa.go.th/
      For the Thailand Pass, you can go to https://tp.consular.go.th/
      Should you require any assistance for the Thai Visa and the Thailand Pass application, please check this page: http://www.siam-legal.com/coe

    Hello again,

    My question was removed, not sure why.
    Do you have to depart from your country of residence due to this 21 consecutive days rule? I am from the UK but work in Belgium, am I able to fly from Belgium as it’s the only way to meet this rule?
    Also do flights have to be direct, for example if you fly Emirates there is a transfer in Dubai?

    Thanks

    • October 29, 2021

      Dear Craig,

      Good day.
      Yes, you can travel from Belgium to Thailand with direct flight or with stopover in Middle East such as Dubai or Doha. You apply for the Thailand Pass from Thai Embassy Brussels.

    Thank you for replying to my previous question but I have another one now. If I land at Bangkok in the morning and book 1 night in an approved hotel how long is it before I will get the test result? Can I book a flight to Koh Samui for the following morning?

    • October 29, 2021

      Dear Karen,

      Good day.
      I suggest for you to check with the hotel because the test may depend the time of your arrival. So if you arrive in the morning of Day 1, you may be able to leave the hotel around midday of Day 2. You can ask the hotel which hospital or clinic will take the test and maybe they can give you an idea about the timing.

      Thank you.

      You should apply for Thailand Pass since your flight is after November 7th. You can apply for the Thailand Pass starting November 1.

    I am flying from Canada to Bangkok November 26. We hope to pend the first week in Thailand in Phuket. Can we fly to Phuket and go to a SANDBOX hotel directly upon arrival in BKK, or would we have to stay one night first in the Bangkok hotel awaiting PCR results?

    • October 28, 2021

      Dear Joanne,

      Good day.
      For the new No Quarantine Program, the guideline is this: You stay for 1 night and do the COVID test in the city where you land in Thailand. Obviously if the flight lands in Bangkok, you must make the test in Bangkok before you can fly to Phuket. If you want to avoid it, you must fly to Phuket directly via Dubai or Doha.

    Why do we need to stay 1 night in an ASQ or SHA+ hotel and have to Apply for the Thailand pass when we have the following. 1: have the 72 hours PCR- test with us, 2: fully vaccinated corona-pass and covid insurance certificate of NOK 15000000,-. We are Going to stay at Hilton hotell in Hua Hin. They will pick us up at Bankok AirPort and drive directly.

    Look forward to hear from you as soon as possible.

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Stine,

      Good day.
      If the Hua Hin hotel will arrange the airport transfer from Bangkok Airport directly to your Hua Hin Hotel, then you you do not need to stay 1 night in Bangkok. You can stay in Hua Hin and have your COVID test there also. If you are questioning why do you need Thailand Pass, please contact the Office of Prime Minister for an explanation or the CCSA can explain it. I believe you just need to follow the entry requirements.

      Thank you.

We are prepared to submit required documentation to Thailand Pass now but the site looks like it will not be up and running until 11/1.

      Dear A,

      Good day.
      We are sorry to hear that. You can apply for COE right now. Just contact the Thai Embassy about expediting the application. Those who are traveling between Nov 1 to 7, you can apply for COE right now. There is no need to wait for Thailand Pass.

    When I visit Thailand I will be arriving on visa-exemption (from UK). I do not know whether I will extend later. Is it okay if I just buy insurance to cover the initial 45(?) days and then purchase extra insurance later should I decide to extend?

    It doesn’t seem to be possible to purchase a flight direct to Chiang Mai (from UK). If I fly to Bangkok with onward domestic flight to Chiang Mai (i.e. need to go through immigration in Bangkok) can I do my one-night stay in Chiang Mai or must it be in Bangkok?

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Mark,

      Good day.
      In order for you to travel from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, you need the COVID test result. Therefore you must stay in Bangkok for 1 night and do the COVID test. Once you have tested negative of from COVID, you can fly to Chiang Mai. Yes, you can book an insurance for 40 days since the visa exemption is 30 days. You will also provide an exit flight within 30 days also which you can cancel or you can postpone the exit flight after you have successfully extended your visa.

      I just checked the Thai Airways website, and it seems it is possible to book a flight from the UK to Chiang Mai (transit in Bangkok), however a warning pops up saying:

      “Transiting in Bangkok to domestic destinations in Thailand is currently not permitted. Passengers must complete the required hotel quarantine on arrival in Bangkok. Further information is available here.”

      However, I wonder if this message is intended for pre-November system? Otherwise, how would it be possible to do the 1-day quarantine in Chiang Mai?

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Mark,

      Book a flight UK to Chiang Mai via Hong Kong if there is any. If there is NONE, you must spend one night in Bangkok. Another option is to book a private jet and arrive in Chiang Mai without stopping in Bangkok

      Thank you.

    • Mark
      October 27, 2021

      But if I go through immigration in HK, then would this potentially cause problems regarding the rule to spend 21 days in safe country you are arriving from?

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Mark,

      Then the best option for you is to travel to Bangkok, stay for 1 night for the test and go package and then you travel to Chiang Mai.

    Good Day Rex

    I submitted a request two days ago (not shown in the post anymore) and did not get a reply so will try again.

    I am fully vaccinated and from one of the 46 low risk countries. I plan to travel to Koh Samui via Bangkok early 2022. I understand that I can either:
    (1) -Get a PCR test upon arrival in Bangkok and stay one night. I can travel to Samui the next day with the negative test result, OR
    (2) Booked a “sealed corridor” flight (only 2 such flights between Bangkok and Samui) and get the PCR test when arrive in Samui

    Please let me know if this is correct. Thank you in advance for your answer.

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Jane,

      Good day.
      I believe I replied to you already. The seal flights are not operating after October 31. In 2022, depending on the month, as of now, you need to book a flight to Bangkok and stay 1 night here to do the COVID test and after that, you can fly to Samui the next day once you have negative result.
      Thank you.

      The connecting sealed flight will cease operations after October 31. So you need to quarantine or stay in hotel in Bangkok for 1 night and do a COVID tests before you fly to Samui the next day.

      If you are coming from the low risk countries, you only need to stay for 1 night in accredited hotel and spend the rest in preferred accommodation and leave Thailand anytime you like. If you are not from low risk country but fully vaccinated, you can qualify for Sandbox and you can also stay less than 7 nights in Pattaya as long as your next destination is another country.

      Thank you.

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Cristelle,

      Good day.
      Yes, you can fly to Bangkok and stay overnight. After which, you can travel to Samui. You can use the test result from your stay in Bangkok for the flight to Samui. Flying from Samui to Bangkok, you do not need RT PCR test.

      Thank you.

      Dear Cristelle,

      It is valid for 7 days.

    Double vaccinated,
    The flight from Frankfurt to Krabi has a 3 hour Transit at Bangkok Airport.
    Do I have to get the pcr-test during Transit at Bangkok Airport or can I fly to Krabi?

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Corny,

      Good day.
      You need to stay 1 night in Bangkok to get the RT PCR and receive the result. After you have negative result, you can fly to Krabi. Other option, you can find an international flight that will arrive in Krabi without stop in Bangkok. Another option, you can enter Phuket and arrange a pre-paid travel to Krabi from Phuket airport.

      Thank you.

      Yes, Thailand Pass is also available for Pattaya Sandbox. You need to book for 7 nights in a Sandbox Hotel in Pattaya. You need COVID Insurance as well. For the correct COVID 19 Insurance, please visit http://www.siam-legal.com/axa-insurance

    I’ve been trying to submit my COE, but there’s the section about uploading your “vaccine certification”. I thought it was my vaccine card (fully vaccinated since May), but every time I try to submit my documents, that section doesn’t go through and says I need to update a valid certification. Any ideas what that could mean?

    I meet all the conditions for the no quarantine, does this mean i will be able to cut my quarantine short from Nov 1st or will i have to complete the full 7 days. Despite being double vaccinated and from a low risk country.

    Thank you!

      Dear Alex,

      Good day.
      Yes, they can travel with you under the No Quarantine Program. They need to have COVID test before traveling and upon arrival. Since they are children, they will just have the saliva test instead of nasal swab.

      Dear Tormod,

      Good day.
      The requirement is that you need to stay 1 night in a hotel within 200 kms from Bangkok airport. Cha-Am is too far so you need to stay 1 night in Bangkok before you travel to Cha-Am.

    We are from one of the “low risk countries”, we will arrive in Phuket on 1.November. We have our COE.
    Does it mean we have to undergo PCR test on day 6 and stay 7 nights at SHA+ hotel or we are allowed to follow new policy (can I cancel the PCR test day 6)?

    Thank you

    • October 27, 2021

      Dear Nikol,

      Good day.
      Please check the link that was given to you by the Thai Embassy. You will see that your COE has been updated. There is a note or remarks stating you are Eligible for No Quarantine if you tested negative from COVID upon arrival. It means you can check out after 1 night and ask for refund. You can also ask for refund for the second test. Do not cancel anything now, you can do it in Phuket.

      Dear Alan,

      The Bangkok Samui Sealed Flights are cancelled already and it will run only until October 31. The best thing to do now, arrive in Bangkok and quarantine for 1 night until you get the COVID test result. After that, the next day, you can fly to Samui. Make sure you fly to Samui only after you have the test result.

Do we need to pre book day 0 test or is that done automatically at the Airport? Finally, does my 3 year old also need Thailand pass?

    But suddenly i was not shure when it comes to the requirements to apply for Thailand passport:

    – Passport
    – Vaccination Certificate
    – COVID-19 Health Insurance Certificate
    – Confirmed ASQ hotel booking or Confirmed SHA+ hotel booking
    – Copy of Thai Visa if required

    My question is therefore: Do I have to apply for Thai visa first, before Thailand Passport?

    Hello Rex,
    we are a group of 3 Germans and will arrive on November 4th. At the moment we still have to fill in the coe, is this right? Is it possible to spend the 4 days in one sha+ hotel and another 3 days in another sha+ hotel. Could we with the new regulation from 01.11. cancel the sha+ hotels from the second night on, although this was specified when applying for the coe? Furthermore, German insurers do not limit their benefits, so that the treatment of COVID-19 is definitely covered, but the confirmation does not contain the sum of 100,000 USD but the confirmation confirmed that the costs are covered.
    Do we have to book the additional PCR test on day 6 and pay even though we arrived after november 1st? if the thailand pass system goes online on November 1st, is it enough to register us on November 1st? We depart from Germany on november 3rd and depart on November 4th. in thailand.
    What should we do now to do it right??

      Yes, you can apply for the COE. Today there has been new COE format stating Quarantine Exemption. You can request for refunds later but I suggest not to cancel any reservation right now. The embassy requires that the amount of more than 50,000 USD and COVID 19 are expressly stated as well as the date of validity. You can apply for COE right now.

      It really depends on the country where he will apply for the Thailand Pass. For example, if he will fly from US to Thailand, the Thai Embassy in the US will require that he stay in USA for 21 days before coming to Thailand (if not US citizen) or if he will fly from UK to Thailand, the Thai Embassy in London is not very strict about this requirement.

    Hello.
    On one side you have the thai pass system, on the other side you have to arrange your visa if you want to stay beyond 30 days. Am I correct?
    I will stay 60 days in Thailand. And I suppose if you do not arrange a visa, you are only allowed the regular Visa On Arrival. Am I right about this.
    If I understand it well, the Thailand pass system and the visa arrangement to get a tourist visa are two different things?

    As a Belgian citizen, it is not required to do a PCR test if you are fully vaccinated. I am not sure if this arrangement depends on the country destination. Is a PCR test prior of flying with destination Thailand required or not?

    Thanks for your answer.

      Dear Cecilia,

      If you are fully vaccinated, you can travel under the Quarantine Exemption Program. You do not need to do Sandbox. Under the No Quarantine Program, if your flight lands in Bangkok, you must stay in Bangkok for 1 night under quarantine hotel or SHA+ hotel and do a COVID test before you can travel to other parts of Thailand. If your flight lands in Phuket, you do the same.

      Dear John,

      Good day.
      Yes, the travelers coming from Indonesia can qualify for the Sandbox program. You only need to stay in an SHA+ Hotel for at least 7 nights and you apply for the Thailand Pass together with a purchased COVID insurance. If you stay for 4 days only, you can do that but your need to book a flight out of Thailand within that time period.

    Following-up from my previous comment dated 10/22 and responded to on 10/23, the Royal Thai Embassy in Stockholm posted (10/22) on their Facebook page that “The COE system will no longer be used. Travelers are required to register under the Thailand Pass system at tp.consular.go.th. 7 days before departure. The Thailand Pass system will be open for registration from 1 November 2021 onwards.” – does this mean that if our arrival date is on 11/1, we would have to quarantine for 7 days?

    • October 26, 2021

      Dear Tanapat,

      No. It means you need to change your flight to November 8 onward. If the Thailand Pass is launched this week, then you have a chance to get the Thailand Pass for your November 1 arrival. If you really want to travel on October 31, please apply for COE and book a quarantine room for 7 nights. You can ask for refund later.

      I would recommend for you to call the Thai Embassy. Maybe they will not issue the COE because they are waiting for the Thailand Pass website. They can still issue the COE but I am not sure why the delay.

      Thank you.

    Good day Rex,

    I arrive in Phuket on 7th November and have pre-approved COE. In order to get final approval for COE I need to pre-book the PCR tests. Problem thailandpsas.com is not allowing me to book a test as there is a message stating, “The booking started from 1st November 2021 is temporarily closed until the official entry process is announced.” Also, the hotel is SHA+ but they don’t provide PCR tests. So, how can I finalise approval for COE? Furthermore, if I wait for Thailand Pass from November 1st I probably won’t have approval in time.

    Thanks in advance for your response.

      Dear Will,

      Good day.
      Yes, it has been turned off today. I recommend for you to just apply for the Thailand Pass. I believe that it will be available soon. Since your flight is November 6th, I think you still have time to get the Thailand Pass. Please check the Thailand Pass portal on October 28th.

      Thank you.

    It doesn’t seem possible to purchase international flights direct to Chiang Mai (from UK). If I fly to Bangkok and have an onward domestic flight to Chiang Mai, can I do my one-night in Chiang Mai or must it be in Bangkok (since I need to go through immigration there)?

    • November 4, 2021

      Hi Mark,

      Unfortunately, most long-haul international flights only arrive in Bangkok and Phuket. For your case you would need to do Test&Go in Bangkok before you can travel to Chiang Mai.

      No, you do not need a visa. You can enter Thailand via Visa Exemption Rule which allows you stay for 30 days. Please note that you are not limited to Phuket Sandbox, there is Bangkok Sandbox, Pattaya Sandbox as long as you stay for 7 nights in an SHA+ Hotel.

    Would this be a problem?

    • October 23, 2021

      Dear Sam,

      Good day.
      The issue here is that, your Thailand Pass has to be issued by Thai Embassy in Singapore since you are spending days in Singapore and not a transit for few hours. I hope that Thai Embassy in Singapore will not require for you to be in Singapore for 21 days before they issue the Thailand Pass. Based on the rules, as long as you are in these 46 countries for a total of 21 days ore more before coming to Thailand. But each embassy may have different interpretation.

      Thank you.

      If you are fully vaccinated, I assume your COE states you only need to stay for 7 nights in the ASQ or SHA+ Hotel. If you apply for Thailand Pass next week, this will be changed to 1 night stay in SHA+ or ASQ Hotel. I think that COEs will still be accepted and the Health Officer at the airport will amend the number of nights and COVID tests that you are required to have.

      It may be possible that it will be launched between October 28-31. However if the changes occur on October 1, travelers should also give some time before they travel. There is no race who reaches Thailand on November 1. It is also possible that old COEs with travel date on November 1 can use the same COE.
