The tropical havens of Thailand are all set to welcome fully vaccinated travellers from all over the globe, even allowing them to bypass quarantine. Following the severity of COVID-19 cases being reduced over the year, the precautionary measures in Thailand have now been eased.

As a part of this, the Thailand Pass registration requirement, as well as, all the Covid-19 restrictions including the health insurance requirement have now been removed.

What is Thailand Pass?

Thailand Pass is a web-based system for Thai and foreign travellers to fill in their travel and health information. Once the application and the registration are approved, a QR Code will be generated and will be used by the traveller that will serve as identification or profile of the traveller.

Thailand Pass QR code

The Thailand Pass QR code allows the authorities to view all the details that you have entered and all documents that you have uploaded, including your COVID travel insurance policy, your confirmed hotel booking, vaccination certificate, etc. during the registration.

If you do not carry a mobile phone with the QR Code, you may print out a hard copy of the QR code and bring it with you to present it to the officers at the airport.

Who needs to apply for Thailand Pass?

Effective 1 July 2022 onwards, travellers, including Thai nationals and foreigners, are NO longer required to register for the Thailand Pass scheme. In addition, travellers will not need to have a US$10,000 health insurance requirement to enter the country.

Travellers are now only required to present either a certificate of vaccination, a negative PCR test or a professional ATK test result within 72 hours of travel. Thailand’s airport authorities will also conduct random checks on arriving passengers at international airports and land border checkpoints (in 22 provinces).

What are the available entry schemes to Thailand?

The Test & Go and Thailand Sandbox Programs, as well as the Thailand Pass registration requirement, have been removed. The following are the two schemes through which non-Thai nationals may enter Thailand.
