Thailand Launching Test & Go Pass

Starting Feb. 1, fully vaccinated travellers from any country in the world can apply for a ‘TEST & GO’ Thailand Pass, which allows a quarantine-free travel in Thailand.

All new applications must submit proof of prepayment for 2 RT-PCR tests and accommodation (SHA Extra Plus (SHA++), AQ, OQ, or AHQ) on Day 1 and Day 5, as well as a prearranged transfer on Day 1.

All travellers must have the following documents for entering Thailand:

  • A Thailand Pass, which can be applied via https://tp.consular.go.th/
  • A Medical Certificate with an RT-PCR lab result indicating that COVID-19 is not detected issued no more than 72 hours before travelling
  • An insurance policy with a minimum coverage of US$50,000, including medical expenses associated with treatment of COVID-19
  • A proof of prepayment for 2 separate nights of accommodation at a government-approved hotel/s on Day 1 and Day 5, and the expenses for 2 RT-PCR tests on Day 1 and Day 5. The prepayment for Day 1 must include an accommodation, a test and a prearranged transfer from the airport to the hotel. Travellers can book 2 different hotels for the accommodation on Day 1 and Day 5. However, on both Day 1 and Day 5, they must stay within the room for the RT-PCR test result.
  • A Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination/Recovery. Everyone 18 years of age and older must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 with an approved vaccine at least 14 days before travelling to Thailand.

The tourism authority says all travellers must undergo ‘entry screening,’ including a body temperature check at the point of entry.

They must also   present the required documents to the Immigration/Health Control officer to carry out the checks, then proceed through the immigration procedures. They must then proceed to the prearranged accommodation to undergo the first RT-PCR test.

After receiving a negative test result, travellers are free to go anywhere in Thailand.

However, they must stay at their prepaid accommodation on Day 5 and undergo their second COVID-19 test.

The tourist authority adds that all travellers must download and install the MorChana application, and set it on at all times for the COVID-19 precautionary measures and to record the result on Day 5-6 in the application.
