4. Restart your Chrome Browser

5. Log on to the Thailand Pass website and complete your submission once again

Click HERE to access Thailand Pass.

Nb. if you have any issues about passport ID already being used, just add a space to the end when entering, eg. “123123123 ”

6. Disable and delete!

Nothing else good will come from keeping this Chrome Extention on your device, so our advice is to disable it and even delete it. It served its purpose, now time to go!


If you need assistance with your Thailand Pass application you can enlist the services of Team by using their Full Service Thailand Pass service (average approval time 12-48 hours).
