  • New registration for Thailand Pass under Exemption from Quarantine (a.k.a. Test & Go) and Living in the Blue zone Sandbox programs will no longer be accepted between 22 Dec 2021 until further notice. Applicants who have registered but have not received their QR Code must wait for their Thailand Pass to be approved. Once approved, they can enter Thailand under the scheme they have registered.
  • Registration for Thailand Pass under Phuket Sandbox program remain open, and government is reviewing the situation periodically. This means fully vaccinated travellers from AU and NZ can travel to Phuket directly. They must have proof of a confirmed payment of at least 7-day stay at an approved accommodation (SHA+) within Phuket, along with prepayment of 2 RT-PCR tests. They also must undergo their second Covid-19 test using the RT-PCR technique on Day 5-6, or when they experience respiratory symptoms. Following the first 7 days in Phuket, AU and NZ travellers can move elsewhere within Thailand.https://www.tatnews.org/2021/12/thailand-reopening-living-in-the-blue-zone-17-sandbox-destinations/
