Before You Go

Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration ordered temporary suspension of the Thailand Pass for all new TEST&GO applications (except Phuket Sandbox which travellers will now need to use again), effective from 22 December, 2021. 

Travellers who have already received a Thailand Pass QR code:

  • Will be allowed to enter Thailand under the existing conditions of the scheme they have registered.
  • The government will introduce new measures for contact tracing and will ensure all travellers are tested twice using the PCR method. The second testing will take place at a government-designated facilities (no additional cost).
  • Applicants who have registered, but have not received their QR Code must wait for their Thailand Pass to be considered / approved. Once approved, they can enter Thailand under the scheme they have registered.

Fully-Vaccinated Travelers:

  • Fully vaccinated travellers can use the Phuket Sandbox Scheme.
  • 7 day quarantine in an ASQ hotel for vaccinated tourists under the Sandbox Scheme. 
  • Currently if arriving under the sandbox program, travellers must have pre booked a SHA+ hotel beforehand and are required to return to this hotel every evening. 
  • Unfortunately travelers will only be able to do day trips with us until they have completed their 7 day sandbox, after which time, overnight charters will be viable provided they have got the all clear from their final test. 
  • All travelers aged 18 or over must provide a certificate of second dose of a WHO-approved Covid-19 vaccination (recieved at least 14 days before travel to Thailand).
  • Travelers 12-17 years of age travelling to Thailand unaccompanied must get vaccinated with at least 1 dose of an approved vaccine. Those travelling with parents are exempt from this requirement. Travellers 6-11 years of age, travelling with parents, are also exempt from this requirement.
  • Travelers under 6 years of age, travelling with parents with a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours before travelling, are not required to have a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR test result and can have a saliva test when entering the Kingdom.
  • Must take a Covid-19 PCR test within 72 hours prior to travelling
Partially or Unvaccinated Travelers:

  • Travelers from all countries who are not fully vaccinated will be required to stay in an alternative quarantine hotel for 10 days, and upon a final negative test will be able to leave and continue traveling around the country freely.
