By providing essential health information prior to arrival, this system aids in managing travel effectively amidst the ongoing pandemic. Its primary goal is to contain and mitigate the transmission of COVID-19 within Thailand. Through mandatory registration, the Thailand Pass prioritizes the safety of both incoming travelers and local residents, creating a secure environment for all.

How can I easily obtain the Thailand Pass?

Obtaining the Thailand Pass is a straightforward process. You can easily acquire it by completing the online registration form available on the official Thailand Pass website. Simply provide the required health information and follow the instructions to ensure a smooth and hassle-free application.

Who is required to have a Thailand Pass for traveling to Thailand?

Effective from May 1st, 2022, Thailand has implemented revised entry requirements for travelers visiting the country. The key change involves the Thai Pass application, which is now mandatory for all individuals planning to travel to Thailand. However, the specific requirements within the Thai Pass application are determined based on an individual's vaccination status.

What are the requirements for fully vaccinated travelers?

If you have received full vaccination against COVID-19, you now have the opportunity to enter Thailand without having to undergo quarantine, thanks to the No Quarantine program. As a result, there is no longer a requirement to book a one-night "quarantine accommodation" at a SHA+ hotel that is approved by the authorities. Additionally, you are not obliged to undergo an RT-PCR test upon arrival.

During the application process for your Thai Pass, it is essential to provide your vaccination certificate along with proof of valid COVID insurance. As part of the updated entry requirements, your insurance coverage must amount to a minimum of $10,000 (USD) throughout the duration of your trip. Previously, the requirement was $50,000.

If you are a parent who has been fully vaccinated, your unvaccinated child (under 18 years old) can accompany you on your journey to Thailand without the need for mandatory quarantine. However, it is important to include your child's personal information when applying for the Thailand pass.

What are the requirements for unvaccinated travelers?

Visitors who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated now have the opportunity to apply for the Thailand Pass, granting them entry into the country without the need for mandatory quarantine.

To initiate the application process for a Thailand Pass, it is mandatory to undergo an RT-PCR or Pro-ATK test within 72 hours prior to departing from India. The test result must meet the criteria specified and should be uploaded to the Thailand Pass application for approval.
