Happy New Year, everyone!
Hope you all had a nice break. We are very excited to share with you the resumption of Test & Go (Exemption from Quarantine) entry scheme effective 1 February 2022.
- Thailand Pass reopens for new TEST & GO applications. From 1 February 2022 9:00 Thailand time, fully vaccinated travellers from any country can apply for a TEST & GO Thailand Pass 60 days in advance.
While existing rules for the scheme remain unchanged, the CCSA approved additional requirements for Covid-19 precautions. All new TEST & GO applications must submit a proof of prepayment for 2 separate nights of accommodation at SHA Extra Plus (SHA++) and the expenses for 2 RT-PCR tests on Day 1 and Day 5. Prepayment for Day 1 must include an accommodation, a test, and a prearranged transfer from airport to the hotel. Travellers can book 2 different hotels for accommodation on Day 1 and Day 5. However, on both Day 1 and Day 5 they must stay within the room for the RT-PCR test result.
- Sandbox program expanded from 1 Feb 2022. Thailand will reopen Bang Lampung, Pattaya, Si Racha, Si Chang, and Sattahip – only Na Jomtien and Bang Saray – in Chon Buri, and Ko Chang in Trat as Sandbox destinations, in addition to Krabi, Phang-Nga, Phuket and Ko Samui/Ko Pha-ngan/Ko Tao. Travellers must stay at least the first 7 nights within a Sandbox destination. Please review arrival requirements here.
Further details will follow soon and will be posted in https://www.tatnews.org/.
