Resumption of Test & Go Scheme 

Test & Go scheme will re-open for registration from 1 February 2022. Travelers from all countries and territories will be eligible to apply for the scheme. Travelers can register under Thailand Pass System via  https://tp.consular.go.th/ 

The RT-PCR test will be required twice. 

– on the first day of arrival  

– on day 5 of arrival 

Required documents to apply for a Test & Go scheme 

– Proof of SHA++ hotel booking for day 1 and day 5 

– Confirmed payment for the SHA++ hotel and confirmed payment of the two RT-PCE tests – A certificate of vaccination or vaccine passport 

– Health Insurance healthcare and treatment expenses for COVID-19 per applicant for the whole duration in Thailand  with coverage clearly identified as no less than US$50,000 

Travelers who received a QR Code before 1 February 2022 can decide to either travel with that code or register for a new one and forfeit the previous one. Two RT-PCR tests are now required for fully vaccinated international travelers to access Test & Go scheme, therefore, whichever code is chosen, travelers will still be required to undergo two tests. 

Under the resumed Test & Go Scheme, travelers can choose different hotels for their first and second test. The two hotels do not have to be the same hotel or even in the same province as long as they are SHA++ AQ or AHQ approved. 

Please be reminded that a certificate of vaccination or vaccine passport and a COVID-free test seventy-two  hours before flying will also be needed
