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

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

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.

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:

I’m going to be transferring in Bangkok on my way to Bali. So Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport) is only a transit for me (3 hours and 45 minutes). Also on my way back I’ll be transitting in Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport) but for 5 hours and 15 minutes.
1) Do I need a Transit Visa? As far as I’ve read I don’t need one, as my onward flight is within 12 hours of arriving in Bangkok. But I’m still unsure, because I’ve also read that I need an electronic Thailand visa for transit, as I’m traveling with Thai Airways.
2) Do I need to apply for the Thailand Pass? I’m not staying in Thailand, other than the transit time. I tried applying for the Thailand Pass, but at one point I have to fill out an address in Thailand, which I don’t have since I’m not staying in Thailand. So if I do have to apply for the Thailand Pass, which address am I supposed to use?
If layover and if you will not check in at immigration , it’s No, Just obtain travel insurance with covid medical coverage minimum of USD 10,000.
I have 7 hours transit in the airport do i need PRC test or insurance or pass?
You need to obtain covid insurance.

All the other requirements as hotel, insurance etc are already arranged.
It’s either they have 72 hours negative RT PCR valid upon arrival or stay in ASQ hotel for 5 days.
Hi, If I plan to Arrive in Thai on 21st May and Depart on 1st June.
1. What if I decided to extend my stay for another week, what must I do ?
2. What if I decided to depart before 1st June, what must I do…
Your plan of extension will not matter, Thailand Pass is an entry requirements.
So if I am fully vaccinated (4 doses), there’s no PCR on arrival I need to worry about and I can book any hotels (even not SHA +), correct? All I need just apply for the Thailand Pass and Heath Insurance, which I already bought. Thanks.
no worries, you can apply for Thailand Pass as usual. You also can book any hotel.

looking to stay in Thailand for 8-10 months at a time return to states and come back what do i apply for and is this possible
Apply Thailand Pass as a requirements to enter Thailand and Visa base on purpose of your stay.
Do I need a Thailand Pass if I have an approved 60 day visa?
Yes, visa is different in Thailand Pass.
It is confusing the approval time for Thai pass also being within 3 days of departure and negative PCR test within same time frame.
So if my flight leaves thailand at 9 20 PM May 28th to vietnam
Then I need to take a PCR test and apply thai pass on the same day
May 26th 920 AM correct ?
The Thailand Pass process takes 24 to 48 hours only, most of the time earlier than that.
Is it advisable to apply for Thailand Pass two weeks prior to your arrival date? I just want to make sure I got approved before booking other flights and hotels since Thailand isn’t the only country I will be visiting in the middle of next month.
Also, I’m not too sure how this will work out as I will arrive at the hotel like 1am of June 14 and plan to stay until morning of June 15 then head to Vietnam. So, assuming if I can’t get the PCR test until the morning of June 14, will it give me enough time to get the result before leaving Thailand and head to Vietnam on June 15 noon? I already purchased Health Insurance for the whole trip.
Yes, if you are fully vaccinated you can apply for No Quarantine Thailand Pass even 1 month before traveling. The processing time is 2 days. If you are unvaccinated, you can only apply for No Quarantine Thailand Pass, within 72 hours before your departure since you need to wait for your RT PCR test result issued within 72 hours before departure also.
So if I am fully vaccinated (4 doses), there’s no PCR on arrival I need to worry about and I can book any hotels (even not SHA +), correct? All I need just apply for the Thailand Pass and Heath Insurance, which I already bought.
Yes , you can stay in any hotel you want.

I am due to Fly to Thailand towards the end of May with my 12 year old Son. I am fully vaccinated and based on what I have read no longer need to do pre or post PCR test and no quarantine. Just upload vaccination documents, passport and travel insurance to Thai Pass.
My question is in relation to my 12 year old son. Am I correct in reading that my son does not require any tests and qualifies with me as a fully vaccinated parent.
For ref he has also had covid some 6 months ago and fully recovered.
Yes, he doesn’t need any test and qualifies in case he is traveling with you.
But we recommend preparing his covid related documents in case of any emergency.

Hi. Can i book ticket delhi to Phuket and return ticket bangkok to delhi.
You sure can.
I have a question regarding to the following. Me and my family are going to bangkok from 25 july to 5 august. In the meantime we are going to phuket from bangkok airport, from 30 july to 3 august. Do we need two thailand passes per person (for 25 july and 3 august, since this is after 7 days of 25 july) and another Sandboxx programm??? (my sisters are not vaccinated, but they will do an PCR test. Do they need to do another programm in Phuket??) Can you please help me with this.
You only need a Thailand Pass on your arrival day. After getting inside Thailand, you can travel anywhere.
Your unvaccinated sisters can apply for the AQ program and quarantine for 5 nights or take a pre-departure RT-PCR test and skip the quarantine time.
I am travelling to Phuket under my maiden surname on my passport but my vaccination certificate is under my married surname. Will this be a problem when applying for the pass? Thank you.
It might be a problem since it’s not the same with you surname in your passport. However, some of the staff will consider it and your Thailand Pass will get approved some are not but still you can try. I advice you to contact the hospital or clinic and change it with the same surname you have in your passport just to make it sure.
