As of November 1, 2021, travellers from 63 countries and territories including Luxembourg (see the updated list on the website of the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs), entering Thailand by air and having a full vaccination certificate carried out at least 14 days before the date of departure, can enter the country under the “Test and Go” scheme. They will have to spend one night quarantine in a hotel certified by the Thai government (see the latest list of hotels here) while waiting for their PCR test result to arrive.
Travelers must stay in the list of countries and territories where individuals are permitted to enter Thailand for at least 21 days or previously came from Thailand.
Those travelers who do not arrive from any of the currently eligible countries and/or who do not have a full vaccination certificate will be subject to a 7-day (Sandbox program) or 10-day (AQ) quarantine respectively. Those travelers will have to meet additional entry requirements under these two programs, details of which can be found on the dedicated page of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
The three programs currently proposed for entry by the Thai government are therefore as follows:
As of November 1st, travelers need to apply for a Thailand Pass, a system which replaces the Certificate of Entry (COE) that was introduced during the pandemic. The Thailand Pass System is a QR code generating system and applicants need to submit their registration at least 7 days prior to their intended travel date. In order to do so, travelers will have to:
- Register at https://tp.consular.go.th/
- Provide personal details
- Upload the required documents:
- Vaccination Certificate
- COVID-19 Health Insurance Certificate
- Confirmed ASQ hotel booking or Confirmed SHA+ hotel booking
- Copy of Thai Visa if required
If approved, travelers will receive an email including the QR Entry Code or Thailand Pass ID to use upon entering Thailand. Travelers that need to change their travel date or registration details will need to re-register on the Thailand Pass system.
Travelling with children
Unvaccinated children under the age of 12, travelling with their parents or a guardian, may enter Thailand under the same conditions as their parents. The child’s birth certificate or letter of consent from parents may be required as a proof of relationship/guardianship.
All persons aged 12 or over must have a vaccination certificate confirming that they have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before their travel in order to be able to enter Thailand under the Exemption from Quarantine scheme.
