Starting November 1, 2021, when you enter Thailand besides the current visa, travelers must have to visit a website built by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand and apply for Thailand Pass online. Here’s the step-by-step process on how to apply for Thailand Pass.
Step 1 Visit Thailand Pass Website
Visit the Thailand Pass website at https://tp.consular.go.th/ Make sure to disable ad blocker (if any) on your browser to avoid unexpected issues.
Step 2 Select Nationality
On the Thailand Pass website, there are 2 options. These are Thai nationals and Non-Thai nationals. For Thai nationals who want to come back to Thailand, they are now required to apply through the system. If you are a foreign tourist planning to travel to Thailand, select the Non-Thai option and select English Language. * Other languages will be supported in the future.
Step 3 Choose a Plan
Thailand Pass is only open for travelers who arrive through air travel only. There are 3 ways to enter the country.
Plan 1: The Test and Go is a program where a fully vaccinated traveler is exempted from quarantine after testing negative for COVID-19 (RT-PCR) after arrival in Thailand. UPDATE: Starting February 1, 2022, registration and application for the Test and Go program is OPEN. Click here for more details.
Plan 2: The Blue Zone Sandbox is a program where fully vaccinated travelers from any country stay in an approved Sandbox area for 7 days and will be able to travel to the rest of the country. Current sandbox areas are Phuket, Krabi, Phangnga, Surat Thani islands (Koh Samui, Koh Tao, and Koh Pha Ngan)
UPDATE: The CCSA added more sandbox destinations. These are Koh Chang, Pattaya, Bang Sare, Na Chom Tian, and Koh Sichang.
