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
- Phuket Hotels: https://www.agoda.com/search?cid=1897011&city=16056

How to Apply for Thailand Pass
The Thailand Pass System is a QR code generating system. To obtain a QR entry code or Thai Pass ID, travelers will have to:
- Register at the official web portal
- Input personal details
- Upload the required documents per their vaccination status
- Receive a confirmation email after registration (within seconds after registration)
- Wait for the approval (normally within 1-3 days)
And if approved, you will receive an email with your QR Entry Code or 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 QR code or you were rejected, please email: [email protected]
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
Thailand has recently reopened the country to travelers, both Thais and foreigners whether vaccinated or unvaccinated. In this newsletter, you will learn about the Step-by-Step Process of Applying for a Thailand Pass.
Step 1: Visit the official website
You may go to the official website: https://tp.consular.go.th/
Once there, you may choose the option of Air Travel or Land Travel.
After that, you will be directed to a page where you can begin your registration:
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.
Step 2: Details of your Arrival
In this part, you will provide the purpose of travel to Thailand whether for tourism or if you are a returning resident.
You will also provide your country of departure, airport of arrival, flight number, date of arrival.
Step 3. Provide your Personal Information
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.
Note: If you are you are not fully vaccinated, you may upload a copy of your RT PCR or professional ATK test result in lieu of a vaccination certificate issued within 72 hours before departure.
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 , if I apply for the Thailand pass before the close date can I still us the test and go quarantine system?
Applicants who have registered, but have not received their QR Code must wait for their Thailand Pass to be considered / approved. Once approved, they can enter Thailand under the scheme they have registered and approved.
Now that the Test & Go scheme is closed, can I still enter Thailand with the Alternative Quarantine scheme.
Can I quarantine in Bangkok ?
I am from Canada ,,, how long would I have to quarantine ?
The application for the Test and Go is still open for the next 1.5 hours.
If you apply tomorrow or later, the Quarantine Program is for 10 nights.
Hello, I’ve been affected by a flight change – my flight will now arrive a day later, I’ve already rescheduled the hotel booking but obviously the Thailand Pass arrival date will be different. How does this affect the application? Will the thailand pass (assuming it is approved) be valid?
The Thailand Pass will remain valid for your new flight as long as it is within 72 hours from the original flight. You can also apply for a new one. You still have an hour to do it now.
Thanks James, I head that reapplying can create an issue within the system of duplicated passport numbers – this leads to a rejection – so I am concerned about reapplying. Have you heard this this?
You can apply for two times.
Good afternoon Rex,
Thank you for the reply, I was under the impression that these were only valid until the 10th of January.
This was reported on a Thailand newspaper this morning
As of today, your Thailand Pass is valid for the date of arrival stated in the Thailand Pass. If the government cancel the whole Test and Go, for sure you will also hear from us about it.
I have flights booked, hotels paid for, Thailand pass approved, but fly out on the 15th of January , will our application be cancelled, even if I want to go to Phuket now instead under the Sandbox scheme.
Sean (confused from England)
Applicants who already received their Thailand Pass QR Code can enter Thailand under the entry program they have registered and been approved. Unless the whole Test and Go is totally suspended by the government.
Is it worth applying for a visa pass for my dad he has flight booked for Thursday to see his Thai wife didn’t realise he needed this, he has a negative pcr today and is fully vaccinated.
Applicants who have registered before midnight of December 22, but have not received their QR Code must wait for their Thailand Pass to be considered / approved. Once approved, they can enter Thailand under the program they have registered and approved.
I am travelling with my family to Thailand on the 27th December, we all applied yesterday for our Thailand pass 4 out of 5 were received immediately, one was not. they re- applied again today and still no response.
is there any way of checking the status of the pass ?
You can email [email protected] or call +66 2 572 8442.
I realised that i didn’t put the right document on my thai pass and still no answer from them ! Do i have to wait for the answer from thai pass or can i do a new one ?
You can do a new one. Please know that the application for Thailand Pass under Test and Go Program will close at midnight tonight.
If I travel from Japan to UK and stayed only for 12 days before flying to Thailand, can I get the Thailand pass for the Test & Go?
Yes, you can qualify because Japan and UK are both low risk countries.
We travel with our 3-year old. Does he have to do a test before we are travelling as well, or only when we arrive at Thailand?
Supposedly starting December 16th, the child below 6 years old will only be requiring the COVID test upon arrival but with the new Omicron variant, and new travel restrictions, it is best to have the test before traveling and upon arrival for all of you.
I am a Thai national traveling from the UK back to Bangkok on 29th of December. In light of the new regulations regarding canceling Test & Go what are my current options? Can I still apply for the Thailand Pass as a Thai national to avoid doing either a full quarantine?
If not, how many days is the full quarantine now is it back to 7days or 14 nights? Am I still able to do the sandbox programme?
If you apply now, and not waste the time, you can still do the Test and Go.
Hi – I received my Thai Pass but I have had to change my flights and travel date as flights got cancelled. Can I still use my Thai Pass for new flight and new travel date? Thai Pass is valid for arrival date of 25th Dec but my new arrival date will be 27th Dec. Thank you!
The Thailand Pass that you have is valid for the new flight within 72 hours from the original flight.
Hi, Do you have more info that is Koh Samui Sandbox still ok or is it now full quarantine.
If you did not apply for Thailand Pass today, tomorrow, it will only be Phuket Sandbox for vaccinated travelers.

You can apply for a new Thailand Pass, you have less than 3 hours to do it now.

You only need to apply or submit a new application. Make sure all documents are correct. The hotel booking must expressly state that RT PCR test is included. If you are arriving in Phuket, the RT PCR test is booked separately.
We have applied and been granted our Thailand Pass arriving in Bangkok on Dec. 27, 2021. When we arrive will they arrange transport to our approved hotel to wait for our negative COVID test or do we find our own transportation?
The transportation must be arranged by your hotel.
When booking a hotel for test and go or for Sandbox, where can I find approved hotels for this?

I’m afraid I won’t have my Thailand Pass yet on the day of my flight. Thank you in advance!
Please allow the Thailand Pass system to review it for 7 working days. There is no need to panic right now.
I’ve received the approval for my Thailand Pass, but I have to change the date of my return flight. Do I have to apply for a new Thailand Pass?
Yes, you will need to reapply for a Thailand Pass.
Greetings. Hope you’re doing well. I’m coming from the US to BKK under the “Test and Go”. Once my PCR test is negative, will I be allowed to go to Koh Samui for the beach vacation or not?
Please note: I’m not participating in the Sandbox program since I’m coming via “Test and Go”.
Yes, after your Test and Go, you will be allowed to travel anywhere in Thailand.
Do you accept MSIG for the insurance requirement.
Yes, you can use MSIG Insurance for the Thailand Pass application.
Thai AXA Insurance is not available if you were born before Dec 1946. I tried putting in my birthdate in Oct 1946, but it would not except it.
I tried sending an Email to [email protected] on Saturday, and my email was returned, not able to be delivered. Perhaps the site does not accept Emails on the weekend.
Please contact AXA directly, the email address you sent to is the Thai government’s, they do not provide health insurance.
My tourist visa is nearly processed and should arrive within the week hopefully. Once I get the visa do I still need to get the Thai Pass as well? Thanks for your help in advance 🙂
Yes, a Thailand Pass is a travel document that allows you to enter Thailand during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Hi, my friend plans to travel by mid-December, she’s a non-o visa holder with re-entry visa as well. Regarding to the insurance requirements, She has a SSO insurance provided by our school. Does it eligible for insurance or does she need to get AXA insurance? Thanks.
Your friend’s insurance policy has to provide cover in Thailand for Covid-19.
Is it possível to receive the Thailand Pass in 48 hours?
We recommend applying for a Thailand Pass at least 7 days before your date of departure.
Will I be able to fly from bkk to samui
After my 1 night quarantine stay in Bangkok
Yes after your Test and Go, you are permitted to travel anywhere in Thailand.
Where do i thai pass
Please apply at tp.consular.go.th.
We are about to travel from UK, we are both fully vaccinated including the 3rd booster, will we have to quarantine for the 1 night as specified?
Yes you will need to do Test and Go for one night at an AQ/SHA+ hotel to await your Covid-19 test results.
Is there such thing as applying for Thai pass too early? My trip is December 10th can I apply for it now or should I wait? What happens if it doesn’t get approved in time for my trip?
Thailand Pass can be applied 30 days before your trip. We recommend applying for it at least 7 days before your date of departure.
Do we have to apply for a new Thailand Pass if we change the Accommodation ?
Thanks for feedback
Yes please apply for a new Thailand Pass because you changed your accommodation.
its still not clear to me do i need a visa for a 1 month stay or does the visa exemption apply.
UK passport holders are visa exempted and can stay in Thailand for 30 days for the purpose of tourism.
Hello, I am traveling from the USA to Uk for 5 days and then intend flying to Bangkok – If I have 21 continuous days in USA/UK combined (both “green” countries) is that ok ???
Yes that is okay.
will covid vaccination passes be required to show evidence of booster jabs in addition to the other two doses?
Hi SJ Morris,
No only evidence of two doses of vaccinations are required.
my wife and I are arriving in bangkok on Dec30 have our three covid shots , insurance etc and are staying in a SRA plus hotel upon arrival…Jasmine city hotel.
Question …..when we get to bangkok does our hotel arrange for us to get our test and go or who????? or is the test at the airport?
we are confused…please clairfy…..thank you
Your hotel will arrange your Test and Go for you and you will be tested for Covid-19 at the hotel.
Hi I’ve put on my pass I’m flying with Thai airways but I’m going with Qatar now on the same dates. Is that ok with my pass?
You will need to apply for another Thailand Pass.
I have a client arriving into BKK on the 19th of December at 18:40pm. They are then quarantining and taking a test before flying to HKT on the 20th at 19:10pm. Would this give them enough time for the test results to come back?
Please check with your hotel about this. Covid test results usually take up to 24 hours.
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!
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.
I will arrive in Phuket from an eligible country. I got the Thai Pass but I changed my flight from one airline to another landing on the same day. Do I need to reapply for the Thai Pass?
You will need to reapply for a Thailand Pass.
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.
A proof of vaccination must clearly show your full name, date of vaccination and vaccine type.
You can provide a screenshot of the PDF from your NHS App. Navigate to your COVID Pass and below your records, download the PDF copy and screenshot this. I did this and my Thailand Pass was approved.
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
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.
I already asked two question. But seems to be deleted!
Just wondering if I must enter Thailand at Suvarnabhumi airport for a transfer between two seperate tickets from two different airlines? my stopover will be 8 hours. And I have NO checked-baggage for collection at Carousel.
You are required to quarantine at your first arrival city in Thailand which is Bangkok, after then you are permitted to travel to your final destination.
I have applied for the Thai pass but my flight was changed to the next day, do I need to apply for the pass again or could I use the same pass for arrival?
You will need to reapply for a new Thailand Pass.
I am at the web portal for Thailand pass ….it is asking for Access code !
Many websites tell me to go to Thailand Pass for access code , but I cannot have access code until I have the Thailand Pass…!! what the hell !
how do I get the access code ?
Please make sure you are applying on the correct website. Please visit, tp.consular.go.th.
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.
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
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.
I am flying to Bangkok from London via Dubai where I change planes and I am at the airport in Dubai for about 3 hours. What should I put as my country of departure for the Thailand Pass?
If you are just transiting in Dubai, please put UK as country of departure.
Can I transfer in Phuket? Arrive with TG953 and change to TG 927?
I am not sure what do you mean. Do you want to transit in Phuket?
Can I fly from UK to Qatar, stay in Qatar for one week and then go to Samui.
Fully vaccinated traveler from UK – I suppose since both UK and Qatar are on your ‘safe list’, this works in terms of your 21 day requirement to stay in one of the countries on your list?
Yes, you can do that. The country of departure will be Qatar not UK when you apply for Thailand Pass.
I have had my e- visa application approved by the London Thailand embassy and they have sent me an confirmation email with the details and qr code on the bottom of the email is this document OK to use for my Thailand pass application as there is no visa?
That is your visa. That is needed for the Thai Immigration. That is not Thailand Pass. You still need to get Thailand Pass for the Health Officer at Bangkok or Phuket airport.
Is it possible to submit/apply Thailand pass during weekend? or weekdays but after work hour like 7pm onward? Would that be an issue if I am doing it that way? Thanks
Yes, you can apply for Thailand at any time of the day.
How do I answer the question; the first arrival port in Thailand when I am coming from Dubai with a 1h30m stop in Phuket but destination is Bangkok?
Am I correct in saying that Bangkok is my first arrival port?
If you do not disembark from the aircraft in Phuket and your flight continues on to Bangkok then Bangkok is your first arrival port.
Hello! Is it possible to travel from Sweden to Thailand with transfering in Turkey, and then go to a test and go hotel?
Yes if you are just transiting at a Turkish airport you are permitted to do Test and Go.
can i fly without thailand pass?
If you are exiting Thailand you do not need a Thailand Pass, however if you are entering the country you will need to apply for a Thailand Pass at least 7 days before your departure date.
I am flying from the USA to Phuket, connecting in Bangkok. I am fully vaccinated and will be utilizing the Thailand Pass. 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?
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.
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.”
Please apply for Thailand Pass at tp.consular.go.th.
Hello. I have applied for a thaipass and now its been 12 days and still no email with a QR code. No email or anything. Just the confirmation
“Dear Mr. Martin Lucas Hansen
Thailand Pass system has received your registration.
The result of your registration will be sent to this email within 7 working days.”
What should I do? Try again? I have payed for fly ticket and hotels and stuff.. And i try to call many different numbers on embassy but no answer. I have send emails aswell.. no answer!!! =(
Please help!! Martin
In case your registration takes too long, contact [email protected] for enquiries about your registration status. Please include the following information at the beginning of your email:
-date of arrival
How long is the Thai Pass App valid? I travel to Thailand by end of January! Can I apply for that ThaiPass now?
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.
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
Your comment was not deleted. We just did not have the time to post the comments and answers.
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.
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.
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.
Yes that is okay and you are eligible to do Test and Go.
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
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.
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 ?
Yes you are eligible for Test and Go.
I will be applying for 60 days visa, from Canada.
Do I apply first for the visa or Thailand pass code?
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.
Can I buy Covid-19 medical insurance upon landing at Bangkok ?
Unfortunately that is not possible. You need the insurance when you apply for Thailand Pass. You cannot travel to Thailand without Thailand Pass.
I plan to travel to Thailand in March 2022. I plan to use Singapore airlines via a three hour stop in Singapore is this allowed.
Yes that is okay and you will be eligible for Test and Go or Sandbox Program.
do you have to have a direct flight to Thailand or not.
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.
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.
