Why is it that I see all this effort to set up the replacement to the COE, vanishing before years end? Because the only way many people will come to Thailand's if all this bureaucracy is gone. The high season only lasts so long.

What about vaccinated expats living in Thailand and having a retirement visa, with corresponding insurances ?

If you are traveling back to Thailand the rules apply to all even Thais, so you need to find the model that matches your predicament.

Edit: except for the covid travel insurance,  not sure about that

I just hope the website will work a lot better than the one of immigration

A justifiable quip, for sure, @Pius! Your debut post, too, so thanks for that and welcome to Thaiger Talk!

So many questions, @Kupferman, being asked by so many people and with so few understandable answers coming from the PTB. It's not good, if you'll pardon my hopeless understatement.

And your debut post, too, so thanks for that and welcome to Thaiger Talk!

Will the TP be the same as the CoE ie you have to submit application on line, attach the required info eg flight details, vaccination certificates etc and then wait for it to be approved? 
In my case I recently submitted application for part one of CoE and then waited for 5 days before it was approved. Have abandoned this now and hoping TP will work better

Question for Pattaya travel : if you are not from one of the 46 countries, you need to "stay in an approved hotel for the 7-day Sandbox period."
Are you allowed to leave the Hotel or are you locked in?
(asking for a friend)

I submitted my initial COE application two days ago. I’m travelling to Phuket on 12th November so the new TP sounds easier but is there any information that says when the TP site will go live..??  The Thaiger is the best source of information I’ve found so I’ll keep watching your pages. Thanks for all your work. 🙏🏻

Hi, @HenrikSand welcome to Thaiger Talk!    Sorry that I can't answer your query, but TT has its resident expert, @Faz, who when spotting this mention, will probably come to your aid.

Yes....the Sanbox scheme allows freedom of movement - must return to stay in the named hotel at night.

Well, tourists can enter with the TP from the 2nd November so I guess the site will be up and running by the 30th November.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. 🤣

Book with an airline which will give you a refund or let you change the date your ticket if need be.

You can find the terms by booking with the airline directly on their own websites don't book via an agent.

I looked a Singapore airlines for example and their tickets are very flexible due to the circumstances.

Depending whether your friend is fully vaccinated or not.

If fully vaccinated he can book an SHA+ hotel under the Sandbox program for 7 days.
You must remain in the hotel until the PCR test result is returned negative.
Thereafter your allowed to roam around the area for the remaining 7 days before your free to go anywhere in Thailand. (2 PCR tests - on arrival and on day 6.)

If not vaccinated then your friend will need to book 10 days in an AQ hotel and will have to remain in his room for the whole 10 days. (2 PCR tests - one on arrival, one on day 8/9).

Thank you. I think I’ll go ahead with booking Finnair on their site, they do allow change in dates though no refund. If for some odd reasons I’m denied Thailand pass for dec at least I know I’ll be able to use it for my vacays in feb, may, aug or nov. Thailand better get the system down by then? 555🙏 nvm lol.

Praying  🙏

I’m in the US. Who would you recommend praying to? Erawan Phra Phrom or Jesus? I will do both so the success rate may increase.

It's the Thai way, everything last minute, then they wonder why the tourists don't arrive.

'Planning' is not in the Thai vocabulary.

Slightly off topic - is there an outer limit to how far back your second vaccination  dose can be?  I will be about to cross the one year mark by the time I reach and recall reading somewhere that the final dose must not be more than one year prior to entry
