The overall global situation of the latest spread of the Omicron variant is similar to the
situation in Thailand. Although there has been a spike in infections, the situation is under control. The increase in the number of confirmed cases is at a manageable rate, therefore, the Center
for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has agreed to adjust the following measures.
1. Test & Go Registration will resume on 1 February 2022
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 (not only the 63 countries as previously designated).
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 (day1)
– 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 USD $50,000
*These hotels can be different hotels to accommodate the possibility that one may be traveling to other
places between day 1 and day 5.
*The negative RT-PCR Test taken not over 72 hours before the flight’s departure time will still be
required to check in for the flight.
2. Reduction of the Self-Quarantine Period
Due to the improving situation, the CCSA has approved to reduce the recommended self-quarantine
for high-risk persons from 10 to 7 days, followed by 3 days of self-monitoring. Antigen test must be taken
on days 5 or 6 and 10.
3. Expansion of Sandbox Areas
Starting from 1 February 2022, Sandbox areas will be expanded including:
– Ko Chang (Trat Province)
– Banglamung, Pattaya, Sriracha, Ko Sichang, and Sattahip (Chonburi Province)
Travelers who wish to visit these areas under the Sandbox scheme will be able to register in the
Thailand pass system.
