CCSA press briefing

The registration for Thailand’s Test & Go quarantine exemption program will return next week after a month-long suspension due to the growing cases of Omicron variant in Thailand.  Registration will open at 9 a.m. on February 1.  Fully vaccinated travelers from any country may apply for a Thailand Pass QR code to enter the country.

Here are some details explained by a representative from the CCSA press briefing:

Registration for the Thailand Pass’s Test & Go entry is now open, travel resumes.

The Test & Go registration period has ended, but travel never stopped. Those who had previously applied for a Thailand Pass QR code to enter the country under the Test & Go system were eligible to do so under the same conditions. While waiting for the results of their RT-PCR test upon arrival, travelers are required to reserve a night at an authorized resort or hotel.

Visit https://tp.consular.go.th/ to apply for Thailand Pass QR code.  Registration is free.  Please be aware of websites that are asking for payment to secure a Thailand Pass QR code.  See our detailed guide on how to register for a Thailand Pass. 

Thailand Pass applicants are required to pay for 2 RT-PCR tests.

The Thai government decided to require 2 RT-PCR tests, one on arrival and the other on Day 5, This is due to the rising cases of Omicron variant on some Test & Go travelers who tested positive after arrival.

Those who received their Thailand Pass QR code before February 1 can get their second RT-PCR test for free at a government-approved institution. According to a spokesperson, the service is not designed to hassle travelers since adjustments were made after they booked their plans.

Starting February 1, those who want a Thailand Pass QR code will have to pay for the 2 RT-PCR tests which may cost anywhere from 2,000 to 4,000 baht. On Day 5, travelers must stay in a hotel or resort that has been authorized by the Safety and Health Administration while they await the results of their test.  This hotel does not have to be the same as the one you stayed in on Day 1 and can be located in any province.

Fully vaccinated but recently recovered from COVID-19

Those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 but have recently been tested positive for the virus can still enter the country under the Test & Go program. Travelers need to have a certificate from a medical professional stating that they have recovered from the virus within the past 14 to 90 days. If a passenger tests positive when they arrive, they can show their recovery certificate, but it may need to be approved by a healthcare expert.
