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 and faster. The Thai Pass QR code is required for all travelers entering Thailand.
The application will be approved by the central authorities in Thailand and not the Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate. Therefore, please allow sufficient time for approval after registering for the Thailand Pass.
The goal of the system is to help support the country’s “Ease of Travel” system after it reopens and to expedite filling out information and uploading travel documents.
Required Documents for Travel to Thailand
Please have the following documents ready.
- Visa (if required)
- Buy Thailand Travel Insurance
- Flight Itinerary
- Hotel Booking Confirmation or Thailand Address
Incorrect documents will delay the entry screening to Thailand.
Travelers may join our Facebook Group to ask questions, get help and read the latest developments: https://www.facebook.com/groups/howtoenterthailand
Who Can Apply for the Thailand Pass
Thai Pass is required for all travelers entering Thailand, whether they be Thai nationals or foreigners.
From May 1, 2022, Thai Pass application and approval requirements will depend on a traveler’s vaccination status.
- Fully Vaccinated travelers will be able to enter Thailand under the No Quarantine program. A vaccinated traveler does not need to book 1 night’s accommodation in an approved SHA+ hotel or complete an RT-PCR test on arrival.Fully vaccinated foreigners will need to provide proof of COVID insurance and their vaccination certificate when applying for Thailand Pass. Thai Nationals only need to provide their vaccination certificate as insurance is not required. Unvaccinated children under 18 years old may travel with vaccinated parents without quarantine. The parents must include the children’s personal information in the application.
- Unvaccinated travelers will have 2 options for entering Thailand:
- Unvaccinated travelers will be able to enter Thailand under the existing 5-day Alternate Quarantine program; OR
- Unvaccinated travelers will be able to enter the No Quarantine program by completing an RT-PCR test and uploading the result into their Thai Pass application. The test cannot be older than 72 hours before their departure date.
What are the Requirements for the Thailand Pass
To support “Ease of Travel’, entry requirements have been eased from May 1, 2022. You can now apply with fewer documents and obtain a QR entry code faster.
The document requirements are listed below.
Vaccinated travelers (No Quarantine)
- Your passport profile page
- A certificate of full (2 doses) vaccination or vaccine card
- A medical insurance policy with at least USD$ 10,000 minimum coverage
Unvaccinated travelers (No Quarantine)
- Your passport profile page
- An RT-PCR test result no more than 72 hours before your departure date
- A medical insurance policy with at least USD$ 10,000 minimum coverage
Unvaccinated travelers doing Alternate Quarantine program
- Your passport profile page
- Confirmed booking of SHA+ hotel 5-day Alternate Quarantine package
- A pre-booked RT-PCR test on arrival (if not included in your package)
- A medical insurance policy with at least USD$ 10,000 minimum coverage
You must scan your passport or take a photo of your passport profile page similar to this example:
Proof of Vaccination
For vaccinated travelers entering under the No Quarantine program, you must prepare your vaccination certificate or card. The file must be in JPG, JPEG, or PNG.
For unvaccinated travelers who would like to enter Thailand under the No Quarantine program, instead of submitting a vaccination certificate or card, you must submit a negative result of the RT PCR COVID-19 test issued within 72 hours before traveling to Thailand.
The next step of the process is to book your flight to Thailand. Although it is not required to submit a proof of flight booking, the Thai Pass system will require the following information of your flight:
- Country of Departure
- Date of Arrival in Thailand
- Flight Number
- Estimated Exit Date from Thailand
Hotel Booking or Address in Thailand
The Thailand Pass system does not require travelers to provide a hotel booking as well. However, you will be required to provide an address in Thailand. If you will be staying in private accommodation you may provide the address.
For travelers staying in a hotel, we highly recommend using Agoda.com when booking your hotel:
- Bangkok Hotels: https://www.agoda.com/search?cid=1897011&city=9395

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 are deemed unacceptable to the Thai embassy or consulate. This may cause delays or rejection of your 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.
Step-by-Step Guide for Thailand Pass Application

When you begin the registration, you will be directed to the entry program which is No Quarantine:
No Quarantine program for fully vaccinated travelers entering any international airport or selected land borders in Thailand or unvaccinated who have RT PCR test results issued within 72 hours before departure to Thailand. Unvaccinated children below 18 years old must be added to their parent’s or guardian’s application.

In this part, you will provide your full name as stated in your passport or travel document, nationality, passport number, date of birth, contact number, and email address. Please make sure that you check the correct spelling of your personal information before you proceed to the next step. Also in this part, children under the age of 18 years will be added to the parent or guardian.
Step 4. Upload Proof of Vaccination or RT PCR Test
In this part, you will provide your vaccination information. You will provide the name or brand of your latest vaccination. You will be able to upload a JPG or PNG file of your proof of vaccination.
For faster processing of your Thailand Pass, it is recommended to also upload the QR code of your vaccination document if it is available.

Step 5: Provide Your Hotel Details or Address in Thailand
In this part, you will be required to provide the details of your address in Thailand or your hotel reservation.
If you are staying in a hotel, you can also validate your reservation if you booked through Agoda.com:
Step 6: Submit your Travel Insurance
In this part, you will provide the COVID 19 Insurance. You must upload the certificate of insurance. Based on experience, it is recommended to use AXA Thailand Insurance as it is the best insurance provider and they will issue a one-page document written specifically for your Thai Pass application.
Step 7: Review the Summary of your Thailand Pass Application
This is the last part of the application process. You will have a summary of your application. Please check all information that you have provided and if everything is correct, you may submit the application.
You will then receive your 6-digit access code which will appear on your screen and it will also be sent to your registered email.
How long does it take to Process the Thailand Pass
The processing time for the application is up to 2 hours depending on the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Disease Control office. There are instances when the registration will take a couple of minutes to a couple of hours. It is recommended to apply for the Thailand pass at least 2 days before your intended departure.
How to Check the Status of Your Application
To check the status of your Thailand Pass application, you may go to: https://tp.consular.go.th/en/check-status
If the status states ‘Reviewing’, it means you need to wait a day or two for the result.
If the status states ‘Approved’, you can download the file or save it on your mobile phone.
Once you have been approved, you can download your Thai Pass QR code or you will also receive it through email. For vaccinated travelers and their dependents, they may use the Thai Pass QR code within 3 days after the estimated arrival date in case of flight delays.
Take note that Thailand Pass is not a visa and it is not a permit to stay in Thailand. It is just a permit to enter Thailand during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sample Thai Pass QR Code
Recommended Thailand Pass Insurance
Based on experience, the common problem for the applications being rejected and travelers being denied boarding their flight is that some insurance policies are not properly worded.
Your COVID 19 insurance must expressly state that it covers up to $10,000 USD medical expenses, including COVID 19 related incidents, and it must cover your whole stay in Thailand.
The Thai Pass system only accepts one attachment therefore it is important to have a one-page Certificate of Insurance with all the required information. To purchase the most reliable insurance that has never had a problem with the Thai Embassy or airline, please click the link below:

Hi. I am travelling to Phuket next month with my wife and 5 year old daughter. Do we each need an individual Thaipass completed or can my daughters be added to one of the adults or can we do a family one for all 3 of us? She is unvaccinated
Your child can be included in one of the parents’ application. Unvaccinated children may travel with fully vaccinated parent and will be allowed to join the Test and Go program.
hi, COE and this thai pass is different ? or just one?
what should i need to get enter thailand for nextmonth
As of 1 November 2021, the COE has been replaced by Thailand Pass. You will only need a Thailand Pass when entering Thailand.
I have work prmit holder here Thailand

Yes, if you do not have a Thai passport you must apply under Non-Thai National.
I have obtained my thailand pass, QR Code. Do I still need a coe? If you download the app they ask for the COE number, but I don’t have one. Is the app still needed when you have a QR code?
You will only need the Thailand Pass with QR code.
Hello, my Thailand Pass approval email states, as an entry requirement:
‘1.3 Medical certificate with a laboratory result indicating that COVID-19 is not detected through RT-PCR test (issued within 72 hours before departure).’ Does the ‘issued within 72 hours before departure’ refer to the date/time the certificate itself is issued, or does it refer to the date/time the test was actually done? Thank you.
In order to be on the safe side, I recommend to country 72 hours for the date and time of the RT PCR test itself.
When applying for a Thailand pass, on the vaccination page, it asks for both the 1st dose and 2nd dose certificates. But I only have the certificate for my 2nd dose which also shows that I am fully vaccinated. Will this be enough? What should I fill in on the 1st dose space?
You need to provide the information of the first dose and attached whatever document you have pertaining to the first dose, it can be a letter or a card.
For the second dose, you can attach the certificate and you can also attach the QR code.

I’m booked to travel to Thailand in late December, I will be in transit in BKK on route to Puchket the same day is this OK and I do the required 1 night hotel quarantine in Puchket and not Bangkok. I look forward to your reply
At this time, domestic flight from BKK to Phuket is not possible without 1 night stay in Bangkok. If your flight lands in Bangkok, you need to stay in Bangkok and take COVID test. Once you have tested negative, you can travel to Phuket. Usually it is an overnight stay in an AQ or SHA+ hotel in Bangkok.
Where can I book the RT-PCR test at the arrival? And is it the test supposed to be done at the airport at the arrival or at the hotel? Thanks
If you are entering Thailand through Phuket, you can book the COVID test in advance at http://www.thailandpsas.com
If you are entering through Bangkok, you must book it with the AQ or SHA+ Hotel. You can search for the Test and Go Packages.
I applied for a Thai Pass 2 weeks ago and received acknowledgement but haven’t received the pas. I’m married to a Thai and fly back on 14th November
Since you registered using Yahoo, your QR code may be delayed or there may be a problem in receiving it. It has only been 10 days, you you have applied less than 2 weeks ago. If you have not received it after 7 business day, may I recommend for you to call the Thailand Pass contact center or email [email protected]
I applied for a Thai pass 2nd Nov received a confirmation as of today nothing.
Resubmitted 9th again received a confirmation.
I have no faith in getting the pass what on earth is going on?
If you have not received it after 7 business day, may I recommend for you to call the Thailand Pass contact center or email [email protected]
What exactly Fully Vaccinated means?
Is Jhonson&Jhonson one doze vaccine is ok to enter Thailand?
What to do if I have Jhonson&Jhonson one doze vaccine and this is not good to enter Thailand?
Fully vaccinated means you have received the required amount of vaccination for your vaccine brand. For Janssen, you are only required to have one dose.
I am approved for the Thailand travel pass and already received the QR code. However, my arrival date is one day later then stated in the travel pass. My arrival date is 20th November, but the travelpass shows the 19th November. Do I need to change it? An if so, how do I change it?
You may register again and correct the date of arrival. Alternatively, you can use the same Thailand Pass and explain to the airline that your are allowed to travel within 72 hours from the date of your original travel stated in the first application.

Hey, my girlfriend and I recently applied for thailand passes, on her application in the ‘first name’ section she has put both of her given names, however on her NHS covid pass which shows the dates of vaccination it only shows her first name due to how data is presented here, will this be a problem?

No, unfortunately you can only apply for a Thailand Pass online at tp.consular.go.th.

I am coming from Canada and am fully vaccinated, etc. However, after applying I noticed my passport had water damage. I will have a replacement passport on the 9th, but the passport number will be different. Will this create any issues? Again, apologies for the inconvenience.
Unfortunately you need to apply for a new Thailand Pass if you still have time. If you have no time, you can show both damaged passport and new passport for your travel.
Soon I will have to apply for a Thailand Pass for a 3 week holiday.
When applying for the Thailand Pass I understand I have to upload QR codes for both vacinations.
Each of my QR codes has a 1 month expiry. Can I therefore apply for Thailand Pass 1 month prior to departure from UK (which would mean my QR Code would expire when in Thailand) or do I have to apply for Thailand Pass 1 month prior to arrival back into UK (which would mean I only have 1 week to apply
In the Thailand Pass system you have an option to upload a QR code or upload the certificate with or with QR code. You can also upload the Vaccination Card.

My family is traveling on Nov. 12th. We have one child under 12 who is not vaccinated and although we can add her to one of our applications, after submitting, it gives the message that she needs insurance even though I have uploaded our insurance information. So basically we are stuck in this loop. So my question is, does a child under 12, who cannot be vaccinated, even need the Thailand Pass?
Yes, all travelers are required to have Thailand Pass. If you have a family health insurance that covers COVID 19, you can upload the same file.
Can the Thai Pass approval process be expedited in any way? If so, how?
Also, are travelers asked to produce their Thai Pass prior to boarding the plane or after they arrive in Thailand?
No it is not possible to expedite Thailand Pass applications however your application may be approved 5 days before your departure.
Where do I find the Thailand pass form?
I’m traveling from the UK and the link on the government website takes you to the Coe link!
The link for Thailand Pass can be found at https://tp.consular.go.th/

Must flight from low risk county be a direct flight to Thailand ? Or are stops with transfer time shorter than 12h allowed prior to landing in Thailand?
To be eligible for no quarantine, you have to spent at least 21 consecutive days in an eligible country. However you can still enter Thailand through the Sandbox or Quarantine programs.
Hi Rex I would like to stay in Thailand for 60 days how would I go about doing that Thank you
If your passport is on the list of 64 countries that meet the Visa Exemption Rule for entry into Thailand, you are permitted to a stay of 30 days from the date of arrival into Thailand. You would need to apply for a tourist visa to extend your stay as well as a Thailand Pass to enter the country during this period.

Is there any problem in booking a flight to Phuket in one airline company and the return flight from Bangkok from another one, separately?
Thank you in advance
That won’t be a problem.
Is it correct that even if I have been fully I would still have to pay and spend one night in a government hotel?
Hi Mrs Maloney,
Yes, if you are fully vaccinated and traveling from the list of eligible countries you would still have to spend one night an ASQ or SHA+ approved hotel in Thailand to await your Covid-19 test results.
Looking at the requirements for the Thailand pass I do not see anything about the pre-booking / pre-payment of a PCR test upon arrival in Thailand.
Is it not needed anymore?
You do not need a COVID 19 RT-PCR to enter Thailand as of 1 November 2021 however you are required to do the test at your quarantine hotel of choice.
I have 2 doses of pfizer vaccine but I would like to get a 3rd dose.
In thailandpass, it is possible to enter the dates of 2 doses. My question, which doses should I enter?

I will be grateful for your response
Please enter the dates of your first and second vaccine dosages because the Thailand Pass does not require a third dose.

i am flying on 06.11 and have a coe.

You can still use the old COE. Kindly check the link given to you by the embassy to download your updated COE. The new COE must state that you are eligible for the Quarantine Exemption if you are fully vaccinated.

You can apply for the Thailand Pass on Monday November 1 at https://tp.consular.go.th/
I find the instructions confusing …
I have a Thai retirement visa. I am vaccinated in Thailand travelling to Canada and returning.
Why do I need to stay in Canada 21 days?
Why do I need covid19 medical insurance when I return?
For those who traveled from Thailand, you do not need to stay for 21 days in that country of departure to Thailand. You can stay less than 21 days in Canada if you have not traveled to a non-low risk country after you left Thailand. COVID insurance is required for all except Thai nationals. The reason why it is required is very obvious with the current pandemic.
Can I travel to Thailand (with Thailand Pass) in November with one way ticket and while leaving Thailand after 5 days to another destination other than my original departure country (USA)?
If you are traveling to Thailand under the Visa Exemption Category, you need to show an exit flight within 30 days. It can be the US or another country.
I AM LEAVING FOR THAILAND TOMORROW, OCT. 30TH. I AM WAITING TO HEAR ABOUT MY TOURIST VISA. I DID NOT APPLY FOR THE COE BECAUSE THE REQUIREMENTS CHANGED NOV. 1. IT IS TOO LATE TO APPLY FOR THE THAILAND PASS. IF I DO NOT HEAR ABOUT MY VISA AND I DO NOT HAVE A THAILAND PASS, WILL BE ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTRY???? I AM VERY NERVOUS RIGHT NOW! DO I NEED TO CANCEL MY FLIGHT?
If you are traveling October 30, you need the COE. If you have no visa and no COE, you definitely cannot travel to Thailand. Yes, you need to cancel it if you did not apply for COE.
How much will it cost to stay in sha plus hotel with COVID 19 test
In Bangkok it could be between 4,000 to 6,500 THB for the one night stay with COVID test and airport transfer.
Hi 👋 can I ask
About Thailand transit/ transfer can CEO required too thank you 🙏
No, it is not required for you if you are transiting for less than 24 hours. You only need the COVID insurance and the COVID RT PCR test.
I have got 2 shots of Sputnik vaccine in Moscow already with the vaccination certificate issued by the local government only in Russian.
Is such an official vaccination certificate in Russian language accepted for getting the Thai Pass or it must be translated into English and then notarized?
TKS a lot for your feedback in advance.
It is in Russian, it means it is only valid to be used in Russia. I recommend for you to check your government on how to get an international version of your vaccination certificate.
I am departing for Thailand on the 03 November 2021 and need to book a ASQ hotel and covid test on arrival of the 05 November 2021. How can I do this?
Are you arriving in Phuket or Bangkok? If you arriving in Bangkok, you must contact the ASQ Hotels as they do the booking for the COVID test themselves with their partner hospitals. At the moment there is no independent testing centers yet for the November 1 reopening. It has to be a tie-up between hotel and hospital.
Hello, I was not sure if my comment has been posted.
How can I book a Hotel with “Test and Go” package?
I would recommend for you to email them directly and do not book using Agoda or Booking. You may check places such as Aloft Sukhumvit 11, Divalux Hotel, Hotel Clover Asoke, The Landmark as I have seen some of their confirmation letters being issued already for the test and go package.
Please answer, writing for the third time.
Will visit in December
We are fully vaccinated, Israeli citizens, in Israel 21 days before departure
Can we take connection flight from Israel with 5 hours transfer in Dubai?
Is it ok for no Quarantine program?
Yes, airport transfer is not a problem as long as you do not leave the transit area. It means you do not “enter” Dubai by clearing immigration or leaving the airport.
Hello! I have a flight to Phuket on 6th Nov
is there a chance my pass will be approved/ready by this time?..
The Thailand Pass will be launched on Monday. I believe that you will quickly get the Thailand Pass as long as you have prepare the requirements and uploaded properly. The old COE system has stopped receiving new applications today.
Good day, we are flying from Sweden with our two small kids 2 and 3 years old do they need to take the PCR test or is it enough with antigen test for them?
They need to do a COVID RT PCR test in order to qualify for the No Quarantine Program. They do not need nasal swab test but they can have the saliva test. Also, upon arrival, another test must be done at the airport or at the hotel.
The TAT website says unvaccinated or single vaccinated children up to 18, travelling with fully vaccinated parents can enter a Blue Zone Sandbox without 10 days ASQ. https://www.tatnews.org/2021/10/thailand-reopening-living-in-the-blue-zone-17-sandbox-destinations/
Yet MOFA information says only children under 12?
My daughter is a Thai/UK dual citizen, is 13 years old and has received the 1 dose of vaccine allowed in the UK for a healthy child her age.
The bottom line is if we have to ASQ, then we don’t come. Pre-covid we have 3 holidays for 14 to 16 days at a time in Thailand (Due to school term dates and my work).
It’s strange that the sandbox schemes in Phuket and Samui up to 31st October, allowed unvaccinated children up to 18 with fully vaccinated parents but from the 1st November, it is under 12 year old’s only. It seem the Thailand government thinks that 12 year old’s and above are adults and can fend for themselves while parents take a vacation?
Considering all the fanfare about attracting families and higher class tourist, the Thai Government have made it easier for single people to travel rather than families.
What are the chances that they will amend this to actually children at least up to 16 year old to travel with their family without ASQ?
The vaccinated parents with children below 18 years old may qualify for the Sandbox Scheme. For vaccinated parents with children below 12 years old, may qualify for either Sandbox or No Quarantine. For the 16 year old child and parents, you will be under Sandbox Program. This has been clarified Thursday October 28.
Question has been removed twice now, not sure why.
Do you have to depart from your country of residence? I am from the UK but work in Belgium, due to the 21 day rule am I able to fly from Belgium instead of the UK. Also how does it work with flights were you have to transfer for example with Emirates you have to transfer in Dubai or do you have to use a direct flight?
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.
Excuse me, what should I do in such a situation.
On October 21, I received a COE certificate.
I enter Thailand on November 1.
Do I need to register with ThailandPlus?
Do I need to register with ThailandPass?
What should I do?
Please go to the web link given to you by the Thai Embassy and download again your updated COE. When you enter Thailand, you not need to download the ThailandPlus application. You will download the MorChana application.
