Travelling to Thailand has become more difficult than it used to be since the outbreak of Covid-19. When Thailand re-opened its borders to the world they introduced the Certificate of Entry to ensure that visitors were Covid free and adequately insured.

When travel restrictions were reduced to facilitate the re-opening of the country in November 2021, the Certificate of Entry was replaced with the Thailand Pass.

In this post we break down the criteria for entering Thailand at the moment with a step by step guide on how to obtain a Thailand pass and enter Thailand during the Covid-19 pandemic.

First of all, you should check if the country you are travelling from is on the green list or not, this along with your vaccination status will determine how long you need to stay in quarantine when you enter Thailand.

You can find the list of green countries here, please be aware this is subject to change depending on the virus situation in each country. 

Fully vaccinated travelers, both Thai and foreigners will be allowed to enter Thailand without mandatory quarantine or sandbox stay. They only need to stay for 1 night in an ASQ or SHA+ Hotel while they wait for the COVID 19 RT-PCR test result that was taken upon arrival.

Travelers who have not been vaccinated or partially vaccinated are required to be in quarantine for 10 days at an approved AQ hotel. 

What are the Requirements for the Thailand Pass?

  • Passport
  • Vaccination Certificate or Card
  • COVID-19 Health Insurance Certificate (with a minimum value of $50,000 and of course Covid19 cover) depending on the length of your stay the cost varies but typical costs are around 3000 THB upwards.
  • Confirmed ASQ hotel booking or Confirmed SHA+ hotel booking (with pre-booked RT PCR test)
  • Flight Booking
  • Copy of Thai Visa (if required)

How to Apply for the Thailand Pass

The Thailand Pass System is a QR code generating system.

To obtain a QR entry code or Thailand Pass ID, travelers will have to:

  • Register at Thailand Pass web portal
  • Input personal details
  • Upload the required documents
  • Receive a confirmation email after registration
  • Wait for the Thailand Pass approval

One of the most important requirements of the Thailand Pass is having the correct Covid insurance. As not only do you risk being refused entry to Thailand but if you did enter and then find your insurance to be invalid you could be faced with a hefty medical bill if you fall sick.
