According to the most recent information given on Thailand Pass’s official website, the Thai government has made certain revisions and extended the validity of Thailand Pass effective from April 18, 2022.
This implies that visitors to Thailand can now arrive on a different day than the date approved in their Thailand Pass application, as long as it is no more than 7 days on either side of the original date.
Previously, passengers were not permitted to enter prior to the day of arrival (as mentioned on the Thailand Pass), but were allowed to enter up to a couple of days later in the situation of flight changes or cancellations.
It is worth noting that as of now, all passengers travelling to Thailand, including Thai Nationals, must register for a Thailand Pass, regardless of whether they are arriving via the Test & Go, Sandbox, or Alternative Quarantine programmes.
Changes To The Thailand Pass
Thailand Pass has posted the following information on its official website:
Applicants can use their approved Thailand Pass QR Code to enter Thailand on different date of arrival if the new date of arrival is within 7 days before or after the original date of arrival as indicated on the QR Code (no need to re-apply or modify your application).
Please note that applicants are required to show proof of revised hotel accommodation that corresponds to the new travel dates, and non-Thais are also required to show proof of insurance with at least 20,000 USD coverage for medical treatments in Thailand for the entire duration of their revised travel itinerary.Advertisement
Failure to produce these documents may result in denied boarding. Further note that each Thailand Pass QR Code can be used only once.
It also added, “In the case that your arrival port is Suvarnabhumi International Airport, please check your hotel counter number via https://checkinextraplus.workationthailand.com/“
The aforesaid changes went into effect on Monday, April 18, and the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) and airlines have already been notified regarding the same.
It should be noted that travellers must rebook hotels and hotel van transfers, as well as update the dates on their insurance. However, they are not required to upload to the TP website. They just need to show the documents at check-in and upon arrival to health authorities.
