You need to read this from the Thaiembassy.
https://www.thaiembassy.com/travel-to-thailand/common-problems-in-thailand-pass-application

You need only book hotels that give you a single page booking confirmation, take insurance where there is  a single page that contains everything the Thai government wants to see. Change your email address away from yahoo ,and hotmail, to gmail.

...

Sorry to hear about your troubles with your application, and you are very correct that Thai bureaucracy is absolutely horrible with their often incorrect, incomplete information and their glitchy always-too-late updated websites. 

But be aware that you are NOT referring to official Thai Embassy information.  Thaiembassy.com is a commercial website (and they are notorious for incorrect/incomplete information just like their official counterparts).  Imo use of that Thaiembassy.com website-name should be forbidden as it puts many people on the wrong foot that they are accessing an official Thai government website.

And it is indeed absolutely bonkers that people needing official information on how to apply for entering Thailand have to refer to social media websites like the ThaiGer Talk Forum to get the CORRECT information which they cannot get from the official sites.

Me and my wife applied for the Pass. Both were denied. My wife because they claimed she had no insurance allthough she had one $100,000, next because she only provided one certification having two waccin with Moderna. The answer was she must have separetly certification for each vaccin. After new application with same insurance and a certificate for the first vaccin she was approad after just one day.

I was nenied also because I did not have separate certification for each vaccin. Same insurance as my wife but no complain for me. I have to wait for certification from the authority before I can apply again.

The informations before applications are poor and me and my wife were denied for same and different reasons, we had the same papers. 

The people who check the applications maybee can’t understand English.

That is strange as if you are vaccinated in Thailand, as I was, you get only one certificate of vaccination which is issued after the second shot.

I got only 1 certification with the date of the last vaccination, and number in a series of vaccinations and number of doses 2/2. 

Is it not possible to upload 1 certification 2 times?

Today I got a certificate from my doctor for the first and second vaccination but without the QR. I did send a new application today so now I am waiting for the second time.

Did anyone who submitted with extra spaces in passport number get QR code?

I submitted for myself (non-Thai) and my wife (Thai). Had to add extra spaces to wife's Thai passport number. We both received confirmation emails on 11/02. I received approval email with QR code on 11/07. Nothing for my wife yet.

Thanks.

An update on my earlier post in this thread. 

6 days after submitting I got a rejection of my application because they said I did not submit my passport, Covid booking, hotel accommodation and  Insurance policy. I did submit all , in the right format and right filesize. I am a post-grad, IT savvy (I build my own computers) so I did not get this wrong. Still awaiting the wife's application result

You need only book hotels that give you a single page booking confirmation, take insurance where there is  a single page that contains everything the Thai government wants to see. Change your email address away from yahoo ,and hotmail, to gmail.

I have an annual global insurance policy of 60 pages which covers me up to £15M for medical expenses due to covid, but I cannot submit all of it via their website.

This is all too late for me to resubmit,  My wife's application still has not been processed after 6 days. I am cancelling  my flight and hotel booking so now looking to go to Mauritius and trying to cut my losses in the  money I have spent so far on my hotel /covid bookings in Phuket. (and covid bookings in UK).

Before someone says I left it too tight to travel , I was in the CoE process in mid-Sept and it was being reviewed at the Thai embassy when I was notified late September to change and apply for Thailand Passport as I was traveling on the 10th November. So over three weeks of trying to fulfil their documentation needs, and getting absolutely nowhere.

I am sorry Phuket I am tired of dancing around their useless glitchy website , with their hidden rules and formats which we can only find out from social media.  They will not let me back in , and they have just lost a high-end tourist couple that loves Thailand, but will probably never visit again.

Feel sorry for you mate. It’s totally ridiculous. If I was you I’d send an email to a few of the newspapers and tv outlets in the U.K.  I’d also drop a note to the TAT. They are basically taking the piss and causing a lot of people to lose money and waste time. I saw an article today saying Thailand was open. Usually lazy media just spouted the positive news sent to them by the local TAT office. “Thailand now fully open without quarantine” 😂😂

Why don’t they just drop all this automated crap. It’s clearly not a strong point for the Thais. Open your embassies and consulates and let people apply for the pass just as they would a visa. Not like they are facing millions a month applying. At least then you could sort out obvious problems.  The point is, they don’t want many people to go. All smoke and mirrors.

And I’m still scared of buying plane tickets yet for my December trip, who knows what ll happen before then or if I can’t get Thailand pass approval.

 

just buy a ticket but make sure you buy a ticket you can rebook, for a fee of course.

That’s sound advice, though of course some flex or semi-flex tickets are more expensive to purchase and still need extra “admin” costs to change it. To buy Full-flex can be 25% more than a normal ticket. There are plenty of options for flex tickets with the likes of Qatar, Emirates and Etihad for example.
 

Worth checking on these airlines as some are already starting to close these offers. Emirates for example are about to stop their “free” Covid insurance on November 30th so book soon if you want to use that. Qatar are only offering flexible tickets up until May travel dates next year.
