Thailand’s Civil Aviation Authority has issued an advisory to airlines about new entrance rules that go into effect immediately
Returning Thai citizens do not need to register for the Thailand Pass, but must show proof of immunization or a negative test result. According to Suttipong, fully vaccinated travelers do not need to submit a negative test result in order to enter Thailand. According to Suttipong, foreigners who do not have a Thailand Pass QR code may be denied boarding, albeit the airlines are responsible for checking this. Suttipong says that the Thailand Pass registration process is now easier and more convenient, according to a Bangkok Post piece. Foreign tourists to Thailand who buy a $10,000 Covid-19 insurance policy can register for the Thailand Pass and get a QR code without waiting for their application to be accepted.
Thailand’s Civil Aviation Authority has alerted international airlines of new entrance criteria that will take effect today. The first group consists of fully vaccinated travelers who should use an antigen test to self-screen for Covid-19 symptoms. Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated people in Group 2 must obtain an antigen or PCR test 72 hours before travel. Foreign visitors who have not acquired a Thailand Pass QR code make up the third group. All international airlines operating in Thailand, according to CAAT president Suttipong Kongpool, are obligated to screen and categorize passengers into three classes.
