To facilitate the process for travellers entering Thailand, tourism officials have launched a website as a one-stop-shop to make arrangements to travel to Thailand including booking an alternative state quarantine hotel. As to who these travellers would be at this time, that hasn’t been made clear.

The “Entry Thailand” website set up by the Tourism Authority of Thailand outlines 6 steps for international visitors planning to travel to Thailand including registering for a Certificate of Entry, booking a flight, arranging quarantine, purchasing the required Covid-19 insurance, checking on the status of the Certificate of Entry and requirements upon entering the country.

The mandatory quarantine period for vaccinated travellers is 7 days. The traveller must be fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved and registered with Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health or approved by the World Health Organisation no less than 14 days before the travelling date. Visitors who are not vaccinated against the coronavirus must quarantine for 10 days. Those travelling from countries where Covid-19 has mutated must quarantine for 14 days.

Steps for entering Thailand:

Step 1: Register for the Certificate of Entry, or COE. Pre-approval can take around 3 days.

Step 2: Book a flight on a repatriation flight or semi-commercial flight. Tickets must be purchased no more than 15 days after the COE is pre-approved.

Step 3: Arrange a stay at an Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) hotel and submit the booking confirmation no more than 15 days after the COE is pre-approved.

Step 4: Purchase Covid-19 health insurance policy no more than 15 days after the COE is pre-approved. Submit proof of purchase. If the insurance policy is booked through “Entry Thailand,” the system will automatically report the booking status.

Step 5: Check the COE status and prepare additional documents before travelling.

Step 6: Prepare documents required upon entering Thailand. Download the “Thailand Plus Application” and complete the Thailand Health Declaration, or T.8 Form.
