Thailand Pass


Thailand Pass

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.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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

Vaccine Card

Flight Details

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:

  • 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)

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.

Individuals may encounter problems with their documents that are not being uploaded properly or are deemed unacceptable to the Thai embassy or consulate.

To check the status of your Thailand Pass application, you may go to: https://tp.consular.go.th/en/check-status

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:

Top 20 Questions on Thailand Pass

Do we still need RT-PCR on arrival after April 1?

No. RT-PCR will no longer be required for vaccinated travelers when entering Thailand.

Unvaccinated travelers who do not want to do a mandatory 5-day quarantine will need to complete a pre-departure RT-PCR no less than 72 hours before their arrival date and will need to upload the result into their Thailand Pass application.

Is there a list of SHA+ hotels in Bangkok?

You can find a list of approved SHA+/AQ and the list of normal hotels in Bangkok at Agoda.com

When should I begin the Thai Pass process? Will the pass expire?

You should begin applying for your Thailand Pass a minimum of 5 working days before your flight date. Yes, it will expire after 7 days from the date of arrival which is stated in the Thailand Pass.

What is the minimum age children need to do an RT- PCR test?

Starting April 1, 2022 travelers both adults and children are no longer required to undergo a mandatory pre-departure RT-PCR test before traveling to Thailand.

Do I need to upload proof of purchase for an ATK kit as part of my Thai Pass application?

No. ATK tests are self-administered and can be bought from a pharmacy or 7-11stores in Thailand. Currently, the official website advises you have to upload proof of purchase of an ATK test kit, but this is not required.

Am I allowed to leave the hotel room while waiting for my RT-PCR negative result?

If you arrive under the Alternate Quarantine scheme, you are required to stay in your room for the full 5 days. You cannot leave the room until you receive a negative RT-PCR test result on day 5.

How long will I need to quarantine if I test positive for Covid while in Thailand?

You will be required to quarantine for up to 10 days or until your RT-PCR test shows a negative result. A second test will be conducted on day 5. If you have a history of COVID 19 infection, the hotel and hospital will determine if you will not be required to isolate or quarantine.

Can I use an old Thai Pass QR if it has passed the original date of approval?

You can use an old Thai Pass QR if your flight changes by up to 7 days before or after the original arrival date. If your changes are over 7 days, then you need to apply for a new Thailand Pass.

If I am a returning expat, how long should I get insurance?

There is no hard rule for how long you need the insurance. Returning expats are being accepted with policy coverage of 30 days.

Why do I have to use a SHA+/AQ hotel?

SHA+/AQ hotels are approved by the Thai Government as Covid safe with 70-100% of staff vaccinated. These hotels have regulated testing processes in place and are partnered with a hospital or medical facility in the case you test positive for Covid on arrival. Booking an AQ or SHA+ hotel is required for travelers under the Quarantine program.

What cities in Thailand do I get an RT-PCR test at the hotel?

RT-PCR tests are conducted at the SHA+ hotel in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, and Hua Hin or partner hospitals for travelers under the Quarantine program.

What cities do I get an RT-PCR test at the Airport?

Visitors landing in Phuket, Krabi, or Koh Samui are tested at the airport and then transported to their hotel. The test is no longer required for travelers under the No Quarantine program.

How much is an RT-PCR test if I have to book it myself?

An RT-PCR will cost from 1,500 to 2,500 Thai baht if you have to book it yourself.

Can I receive assistance with preparing documents for my Thailand Pass?

Yes. Companies like Siam Legal International provide Thailand Pass services that check and confirm all documents are in order.

Can I land in Bangkok and fly straight to Krabi?

Yes. If you are vaccinated, under the new No Quarantine program, you are free to travel anywhere when you leave the airport.

Can I book a flight to Chiang Mai if I land in Bangkok?

Yes. From May 1, Test & Go is no longer required for vaccinated travelers so you can book domestic transit flights anywhere in Thailand immediately.

Do I have to stay at SHA+/AQ hotels for my entire stay in Thailand?

No. SHA+/AQ hotels are only required for travelers entering Thailand under the No Quarantine program. As long as you have a Thailand Pass, vaccination and insurance, you are free to travel anywhere in Thailand and book any accommodation.

    My proof of covid vaccines certificate card does not have a QR code.
    Can I still apply for a Thailand Pass? Will it take a lot more time to get approved?

    • May 5, 2022

      Hi Al

      You can still apply for Thailand Pass without uploading the QR code from your vaccine. Right now, Thailand Pass approval has been faster to get approved than before even if you don’t have the QR. If you want to apply for Thailand Pass, you can visit this link, : https://tp.consular.go.th/

Should I add the latest vaccine certificate that includes all 3 doses in both the fields for 1st and 2nd dose on thai pass website? Also, same 3rd dose qr code from the latest certificate?

      Hi rcool,

      You can add your booster dose details while applying for Thailand Pass too! If the QR code is still the same, it is better.

    I bought 2 separate flight tickets, one from Bangkok Airways from Cambodia to Bangkok, and another from Elal to Israel from Bangkok after 4 hours. Do you know if it will be possible for me to pick up my suitcase independently and then check in the next flight without all the bureaucracy of the Thai Pass? Do you know if it is possible? Or know what can be done?
    Thank you so much for your help!

    • April 20, 2022

      Hi Yafit,

      In that case, you will need a Thailand Pass to enter the country, and you need to undertake Test and Go for one night.
      Because as you are booking separate flights you need to check in with the airline again.

    Good morning. I’m currently in Thailand but I will be leaving the 1st of May and be back in July 5th and I want to prepare everything for my return. Is it possible to get the Covid insurance as well as the Thai pass before leaving? Should I apply for a permit of re entry besides the Thai pass? Thank you.

    • April 20, 2022

      Hi Ismael,

      Since the government is still consideration of cancelation of Test and Go in May, even though all the authorities are still being silent about their final decisions, you can apply for Thailand Pass at least 7 days before your flight in July. That will work better.

    My friend had just recovered from Covid with a discharge memo given by Singapore Ministry of Heath. Can he still be able to travel to Bangkok on this friday if he is still covid positive? Will he be quarantine even tested positive during PCR that is conducted by the SHA plus hotel.

    Hope to receive your reply soon

    • April 20, 2022

      Hi Wei Ming,

      In this case, your friend needs to inform the hotel beforehand with official documents as proof. The hotel can contact the hospital to be aware of your friend’s situation.
      Most hotels have different policies regarding quarantines, please check with the hotel for accurate responses.

    Hello Sir,

    We have a situation that, we will arrive Phuket on 30th April and we have booked our hotel in Krabi and also they have booked the airport transfer and we have separately booked RTPCR test as well.

    But when applying for Thailand pass under the booking ID of Hotel it says that Airport transfer and RTPCR is not included as Airport transfer has a different booking ID. So can we simply provide our documents/ receipts for relevant documents? Should that be fine?

    Also as we have to book for Day 5 as well then also its asking for one Booking ID only? Please let us know.

    • April 19, 2022

      Dear Akshay,

      That is alright. It won’t be a problem. Just make sure that you attach copy of the RT PCR test receipt in your application and make sure that your Krabi hotel has a copy of your RT PCR receipt. During the Thailand Pass application, it is only required to submit the Day 1 booking.
      Thank you.

    Hi I’m travelling to chiang mai on 2nd May 2022.
    For travaller who contracted covid within 60days prior to travel date is it required to do pcr test as well? As study show that though previous covid positive traveller has recovered and no longer contagious, there’ll be a chance that pcr test would detect as positive. Please advice.

    • April 19, 2022

      Dear Yap,

      Yes, you are still required to under go an RT PCR test. If you tested positive and the result is just a remnant of your previous infection and you have a proof of recovery, you will be released.
      If the positive RT PCR test result concludes that it is a new COVID infection, you will be isolated.

    I am a Thai Citizen travelling from Australia to Thailand to see my family, I’ll be accompanied by a Non Thai Citizen. We will be applying for the Test & Go. From my understanding I didn’t need to take a PCR test before leaving Australia but only take a test when I arrive in Thailand. Do we need to test before we leave?

      If your flight departs on 1 April or after that, you will not be required to take a PCR test before leaving, just do a Test and Go.

      You do not need to cancel the Thailand Pass. You can just disregard the application whether it was rejected or approved.

    We are 2 adults(me and my wife) with 3 children under 18
    why it’s not possible to apply once to the entire family?
    first, I was applying for me and the children and I did not find the option to add my wife… so she had to apply for herself separately.
    my question is if only one of us needs to fill in the details about our children or we had to do it twice. once for me and one for my wife’s application?
    I fill the children’s details only in my application and my wife’s application was done only for her without the children’s deatales.
    I hope it’s o.k….

    • March 22, 2022

      Dear Shimon,

      Children under 18 are allowed to be traveled with legal guardians (which includes parents), so you could apply for your children with you. While your wife, who is an adult, had to apply individually.

      Dear Alden,

      Good day.
      You can apply for Thailand Pass right now under Sandbox or Quarantine Program. If you are looking at getting a Test and Go Thailand Pass, you need to apply on February 1. It is a risk to take if you will travel on February 4th. But I think you have a good chance of receiving it on time if you have a complete set of documents in correct format and your vaccination document has acceptable QR code.

      According to reports, the Thailand Pass is not retroactive. You will be allowed to enter and stay in Thailand based on the Thailand Pass that was issued to you or the Thailand Pass that you are holding when you land in Thailand.

Or do we have to wait for a negative PCR test to re-book? I’ve heard you can test positive for a while after recovery.

    Hey!

    We just booked an international flight to phuket with a transit in bangkok. The domestic flight from bangkok to phuket is operated by bangkok airways and the flight number is PG5279 (03.02.2022, 17:10 – 19:15).
    We also booked a 7 night stay at the SHA-extra+ “Krabi Heritage Hotel” in the Krabi sandbox. Furthermore we booked the transit from Phuket airport to the hotel and the 2 necessary RT-PCR-Tests (1 on arrival and one on day 5-6).

    Now the question: We just tried to register for the ThailandPass and recognized that we can not choose our booked hotel. I think because we tried to register the Survanabhumi (BKK) airport as the first arrival port in Thailand. In that way we are only able to choose hotels in the Samui sandbox. How can we register in the right way? Because a domestic flight to Phuket international airport is allowed, when its the flight number PG5279, right? So we should be able to choose our hotel during the registration for the Thailand sandbox.

    Another short question: Should we type in the international flight number to Bangkok in the registration for ThailandPass (first arrival port in Thailand) or the domestic flight to Phuket (PG5279)?

    Thank you really much, we hope that you can help us!

    • January 24, 2022

      Dear Florian,

      The sealed flight from BKK to Phuket will officially start on February 1 therefore it will come into the system on that day. Another option, you can register now, but use Phuket as airport of arrival and use PG5279 as flight number.

      Dear Marcus,

      Since these hotels are working with a local hospital their Test and Go package is not listed on Booking.com or Agoda.com It is recommended for you to contact or book directly with the hotel.
      Thank you.

      Dear Nazan,

      If you apply for the Thailand Pass right now, you need to have 7 Days Quarantine in Bangkok before you can go to other parts of Thailand. Or you can wait and apply on February 1, you can book for the Test and Go program.
      Thank you.

    Dear Sirs,

    my ThaiPass is valid from 22.01 but due to interconecting flight changes I will enter Phuket on 23.01. Please advise if there will be any issue with the different date of entry?

    • January 19, 2022

      Dear Alexander,

      Please scan your Thailand Pass QR Code and it will tell you the MUST ARRIVE IN THAILAND NOT LATER THAN DATE.

    Hello is it possible to move from one SHA+ hotel to another during first 7 days? If yes how to proof it while making Thailand pass?
    From what i see you can apply only one document of your hotel reservation.
    Thank you for your time.

    • January 18, 2022

      Dear Kajetan,

      Travelers to Krabi, Phang-Nga, or Phuket can change accommodation twice within the first 7 days (can book 2 different hotels) within the province.

      Travelers to Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan and Ko Tao can change accommodation three times within the first 7 days (can book 3 different hotels). But they must stay the first night on Ko Samui and must receive a negative result for their first RT-PCR test, before being able to change accommodation to other hotels on either Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan or Ko Tao. Or they can choose to book 3 different hotels on Ko Samui alone.

      For convenience in applying for Thailand Pass, just book one hotel for the whole 7 nights.

      Thank you.

    Thai pass has been refused because of hotel confirmation for quarantine. 3 people booked into one room but confirmation doesn’t state their names just the person that booked. Any help

    • January 18, 2022

      Dear Dawn,

      Good day.
      You need to contact the hotel and ask them to enumerate all the names of the applicants in the Hotel Confirmation Letter.
      Thank you.

    I can see that package 1 assists US, UK and Canada citizens

    Is there a package to assist an Australian? I need a Thailand pass. Is the program still suspended or can I apply for Test and Go?

    • January 18, 2022

      Dear Althea,

      Australians are foreign nationals. You may retain our service for Thailand Pass 100 USD fee. At the moment, the Thailand Pass available is Sandbox and Quarantine.

    Hi, I was just wondering if we stay longer than the dates stated on the Thailand pass do we have to re apply?

    • January 13, 2022

      Dear Dylan,

      There is no need to reapply. Once you are inside Thailand, you only need to make sure that your entry visa or entry stamp is updated and not overstay. if you need to stay longer, you can visit the local immigration office to extend your stay.
      Thank you.

    My flight is from Australia to Phuket for 8nights and I already booked a PCR test for arrivel in Phuket airport so do I need a pre-test COVID for arrive is Phuket if so are you accepting rapid test which is doing in Australia airport before flight ?
    Thanks

    • January 13, 2022

      Dear Ellie,

      You need to print your Thailand Pass QR code and you are required to have a negative result of your COVID 19 RT PCR test taken within 72 hrs before the flight. It must be an RT PCR test as required by airlines and by Thailand government.
      Thank you.

    • January 13, 2022

      Dear Katrina,

      If you actually scan your Thailand Pass QR code, it states MUST ENTER NOT LATER THAN January 8. So that means, you must get a new Thailand Pass.

    The Phuket Sandbox would be fantastic but many airlines and countries do not have direct flights to Phuket. Thai government please be practical and set up a transit lounge at BKK to allow a greater range of tourists to utilize the Phuket Sandbox!

    • January 10, 2022

      Dear Fatima,

      The Thailand Pass is valid for the date of arrival stated in the Thailand Pass. In case of flight delay or cancellation, you can still use it up to 3 days after the original date of arrival.
      After that, if your new flight is beyond the 3 days time allowance, you must apply for new Thailand Pass.
      Thank you.

    This is quite urgent as we already booked half of our tickets to Thailand.
    We are Vietnamese citizens traveling from Europe to Thailand on 18th of January.
    We will bring along with us PCR test and fully vaccinated paper.
    Do we need to undergo 7 day quarantine or can we take the test upon arrival and stay in SHA+ hotel for one night?

    Thank you so much and awaiting for your answer.

      Dear Na,

      Good day.
      If you have been approved for the Test and Go Thailand Pass, yes, you can definitely use it for your trip and stay for 1 night in quarantine. If you have not applied for Thailand Pass at all, then you have to apply under Quarantine Program of 7 nights.
      Thank you.

    I have been approved under the Test & Go and received my Thai-pass. I am required to obtain a negative RT-PCR 72 hours before travel. Will a Rapid Antigen Test also work (results given the same day). There is a backlog of RT_PCR tests here in the USA and I may not received the results of the RT-PCR test 72 hours prior to my fight departure.

    Hi Rex,
    I am originally booked to land in Bangkok on 16/01/2022. I do not have Thai Pass as i understood that you needed to apply for the pass 14 days before arrival. Anyhow, my question is, Can i continue with my journey to Bangkok but get on a flight to Phuket without leaving the Airport and avail of the Phuket Sandbox program? meaning can i make my arrival in Bangkok Airport a transit visit but never leave airport and continue straight to Phuket? This will be a different airline provider to my initial one.

      Dear Owen,

      If you would like to apply for Thailand Pass under Phuket Sandbox program, your flight to Phuket must not stop in Bangkok. You can get a flight to Phuket with transit in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Helsinki or Singapore.

    The [email protected] seems to be for IT problems, sending messages to it regarding your application, does not work. It seems you have to re-apply for every change to your application, this must be causing a lot of churn.

    Calling the help line +66 2 572 8422, will involve a long wait, and your call may drop out before you get through. The other numbers +66 65 205 4247 etc. do not work.

This was approved on my Thailand Pass, but they said Thai govt would not allow me to fly from BKK to Phuket.
