Thailand Pass set to replace CoE

Recommended Posts

From the linked article

“Clarity is also needed on whether travellers need proof of a hotel booking beyond their first night in the kingdom and if this applies to expats with homes here. Furthermore, Thai embassies continue to advise people to book quarantine hotels, insisting they’ve received no communication about the re-opening process.”

So ten days to partial reopening and the left hand still does not know what the right is doing.

The Mor Chana App app mentioned in the article is the old tracking app launched last January and is what is used to scan QR codes at shopping malls, public buildings etc. There is no mention of the Thailand Pass App.

From Thai Embassy website

To obtain a QR entry code or Thailand Pass ID, travelers will have to:

Register at www.thailandpass.go.th (this website is not active as of writing)

Input personal details

Upload the required documents

The processing time for the Thailand Pass application is 3 to 5 days depending on the Thai Embassy or Consulate where the application has been submitted. It is recommended to apply for the Thailand pass at least 7 days before your intended departure.

So opening in 10 days, 7 days required before departure to apply for Thailand Pass and website still not live, where could it all go wrong.

Although further details have not yet been released, the unofficial translation of the most recent news can be found by clicking here. The Thaiger will have more updates as soon as they arrive from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The government has recently outlined 7 conditions that will determine if someone can enter the kingdom quarantine-free. The following conditions have been communicated by the Bureau of Risk Communication and Health Behaviour Promotion, part of the Disease Control Department.

1. Foreign visitors must arrive by air and come from a list of “low-risk” countries approved by the Public Health Ministry

2. Have proof of vaccination with 2 doses of a recognised Covid-19 vaccine

3. Have a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of departure from your home country

4. Have at least US$50,000 in Covid-19 insurance coverage

5. Have proof of a hotel booking

6. Travellers must download the Mor Chana app and take a second PCR test on arrival or within 24 hours of arrival

7. If the second test is negative, visitors can continue their journey without any further quarantine

Despite the planned reopening being just 10 days away, the rules for vaccinated adults travelling with unvaccinated children remains unclear. Clarity is also needed on whether travellers need proof of a hotel booking beyond their first night in the kingdom and if this applies to expats with homes here.

Thai PBS World reports that the government is moving to a 3-model approach for admitting foreign arrivals. The first – and original – model is that unvaccinated visitors will be subject to mandatory hotel quarantine for between 7 and 14 days. The second model is the sandbox model currently in operation in Phuket, Samui and other tourist destinations, which is being extended to several other provinces. The third model will be the quarantine-free model, which allows approved “low-risk” countries or territories, such as the ones recently approved above, to enter without undergoing quarantine.

But they don’t say how, is it CoE as has been or Thailand Pass high is still not live?

As stated previous post Thailand Pass 7 days before travel, website still not working and it is a holiday weekend in Thailand so I don’t believe Public Sector IT will be working on it, which will take us to Mon 22 Oct, 9 days before planned PARTIAL reopening. 
Glad I am not traveling

The Thai Military Dictatorship do not know what the pandemic will do in the future, the “Blue Zone Openings” are merely a schedule of when they will “Fudge the Books” and declare 70% double vaccinated in these provinces.

Latest News

According to the order, curfew will end at 11pm on October 31 in provinces that are under maximum and strict control but are popular among tourists. 
Public gatherings in reopening zones will be capped at 500. Entertainment venues like pubs, bars and karaoke outlets will remain closed, though operators have been told they can start making preparations to reopen soon.

 

So if Entertainment and Bars are closed, can’t get a drink with a meal on vacation why bother
