The MFA / Ministry of Foreign Affairs has recently announced that the Certificate of Entry (COE) has been replaced with the "Thailand Pass" system.

The "Thailand Pass" online registration system is accessible at https://tp.consular.go.th.

The new Thailand Pass system will be for everyone except for those who will be traveling as part of group arrivals (by sea), and Alternative Hospital Quarantine (AHQ) stay as well. They will have to use the existing COE system until otherwise specified.

Thailand Pass FAQ

What is Thailand Pass?

Thailand Pass is a web-based system for Thai, and foreign travelers to fill in their travel, and health information. Upon approval, you receive a QR code which will allow you to travel to Thailand (you will still need to meet visa requirements).

How much does Thailand Pass cost?

If you apply on your own it is FREE at the official application portal. However there may be additional fees if you use our rush services to submit on your behalf, and follow up with your case.

The website will be at https://tp.consular.go.th.

How can I check my status?

For applications after November 10th you may check your status at https://tp.consular.go.th/en/check-status.

What is SHA EXTRA PLUS or SHA++?

It means the hotel has SHA+ status, and also has a partner hospital which can do the RT-PCR/ATK tests, and pick up from the airport. You can check HERE.

Is registration in Thailand Pass required for all 3 schemes traveling into Thailand?

Effective from 1 November 2021, all travelers arriving in Thailand by air are required to register with Thailand Pass in order to travel into Thailand.

Can I use my approved COE to enter Thailand?

If you possess an approved COE, you can travel to Thailand using that COE, and will be eligible to enter Thailand via one of the three schemes, depending on whether you meet the scheme's requirements. Your COE will also describe your eligible schemes.

What should I do if my COE is still under consideration?

  • If your COE has been pre-approved, you will need to submit the rest of the required documents by 7 November 2021. Otherwise, your COE request will be automatically rejected, and you will need to register with the Thailand Pass system to travel to Thailand.
  • If your COE has not been pre-approved by 1 November 2021, your CO request will be automatically rejected, and you will need to register with the Thailand Pass system to travel to Thailand.

How long does the approval process take with Thailand Pass?

It is required that applicants submit their registration at least 7 days prior to their intended travel date.

Do you still need COVID-19 insurance?

If you would like to change your travel date / registration details, you will need to re-register on the Thailand Pass system.

If I have multiple trips in and out of Thailand, can I register multiple trips through Thailand Pass?

Yes. You may submit multiple registrations at the same time for travels into Thailand at different dates to facilitate your travels and itinerary, Please be mindful to present the correct OR code to the Health Control and Immigration officer upon arrival.

No. Everyone aged 12 or over must submit an individual registration through Thailand Pass. Children aged under 12 can be added into their parents registration under the section Personal Information.

My children are unvaccinated; can they enter Thailand through the same scheme as their parents?

  • All persons aged 12 or over must have a vaccination certificate confirming that they have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before their travel in order to be able to enter Thailand through the Exemption from Quarantine.
  • Children aged 18 and under if accompanied by their parents or legal guardian can enter Thailand through the Sandbox program.

  • Exemption from Quarantine scheme: You can travel to any destinations in Thailand once the RT-PC test upon arrival received is negative.
