    Seems a bit silly when people are still doing 7 or 10 day ASQ. Why don't they just stamp 30+Quarantine.

    Too mathematically complex I suppose.

    It beggars belief to watch this unfold, the damage this is going to do to Tourism. I'm cancelling I was silly to make the application.I'll wait now until 1st November ,and cancel flight etc.

    But once in I ain't leaving until this pesky pandemic has settled down.

    A practical opening will be when you can come on visa on arrival, with a jab cert and negative test. Until then don't expect tourists to go through this convoluted bs process.

    With luck 4th quarter 2022.

    In the US they are quite good at responding by text. They are too busy to take phone calls now. I was told that they are extremely busy trying to get COE's out to people traveling in the next week. They told me that I could re-apply for a Thailand Pass on November 1st or wait for them to act on my COE approval. I don't travel until November 17th so I have time.

    They have been rejecting COE's to people arriving from the 8th Nov onwards and telling them to apply through tp.consular.go.th when it opens on Friday.

    And telling them they can apply for a COE as a backup!

    I'll be travelling back to Thailand late November/early December so am interested in this topic.

    One condition for the Thailand Pass:

    'Note: Must reside in the eligible countries for at least 21 consecutive days'

    Does anyone have any idea if/how the Thai authorities can determine this?

    I'm hoping to get my second Pfizer jab in the UK, wait 14 days and then fly out.

    That might be a good idea. IMO there is a very good chance of the opening or new variants causing covid flair ups and the opening being reversed while you are out having to go through quarantine and all the other nonsense.
    Having said that. let me also say that since we came back early last May. I am bored out of my scull here in Thailand. I hope the relaxation will relives some of that. but said relaxation requires vaccination certificates for domestic travel that I dont know how to get since my vaccinations were done outside the country.
    Anyway, come on over , miserly loves company

    You’ve been vaccinated. I’ve been vaccinated in the states just as you have.

    Get up! Travel within Thailand. The Andaman Sea is beautiful this time of year.

    Thailand's Similan Islands reopen with limited tourist numbers allowed

    We have 3 different trips planned. Give back. The Thai tourist industry needs the help. Just travel safely and enjoy yourself.
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Passport stamps unless they have access to the UK immigration database?

    Is that the previous 21 days, or in a full previous year? Is it just a yes/no box to tick?

    What proof do they require when applying for the Thailand Pass?

    How long from arriving to 2nd jab?

    Do UK airport check-ins, immigration, have access to your travel history when they scan your passport?

    An experience of entering at a California airport led me to believe some may have a travel history dossier on all passengers, which for some may be quite long.

    Thank you for that, I agree we are planning some trips.
    But how about of proof of vaccine is required? Would domestic airlines accept my US certificate? do hotels in those areas require a vaccine certificate and ,again will they accept our US certificates.
    Any suggestions where to go. I was thinking Kho Chang I have never been there, and I think we can drive and take the ferry there. I think I remember a thread of someone who went there in this forum, I'll see if I can find it.

    ^^^ Harry, that's exactly what I was wondering... but I can't really see that the Thais would have access to the UK immigration database. Would any country allow another country access to an immigration database?

    If it's purely on passport stamps I can get stamped out of Turkey using a different passport, then as far as the Thais will be concerned my last passport stamp would be leaving Norway at the end of August.


    ^^ OhOh, that's precisely what I'm wondering. I would think they only have access to any travel history stored on their own database, ie in/out of Thailand and maybe the associated itineraries.

    The 21 days is 21 consecutive days before leaving an 'approved' country. I plan to get my second Covid jab the first day after arriving in the UK, so should be clear to leave 14 days after that.

    Sounds like the plan or stay 3 weeks in the UK

    Ref the jabs, in the UK they have the NHS pass which records your COVID vaccine record and you can down load it for Thai Pass as a PDF. Its easy so if i was you i'd try to get your NHS record updated with your Norway shot if you can and then it'll all be available on the NHS App

    Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. The hotel/resorts might want to see a copy when you book.

    From another place……

    Questioning the first hotel about the requirements needed in the form of Covid vaccine proof. They requested a copy of our US CDC card with evidence of both injections.
    We started booking almost a month ago. All three accommodations have been paid for. Every one of the resorts/hotels were giving unbelievable deals. Free dinners, extra night/s stay, reduced price per evening.

    Hurry,………..there might be some good deals still available, if you book now. You don’t have to go next week,………just book for a future date.

    About Kho Chang. It’s just OK. It was much better years and years ago. The truth,..if I had a yacht large enough I would never step foot on the island again. We were there for a diving trip.

    Where we stayed about 2 years ago. Santhiya Tree Koh Chang Resort: Koh Chang | Santhiya Resorts & Spas

    It was a nice place

    The important thing is Taiwan is on it and Russia isn't.

    Oops, nearly forgot.

    Despite the naysayers, it's up and running as promised.

    Thailand Pass Registration System (for air travel only)

    Added: Couple of niggles apparently, some API errors and problems uploading PDFs, so use JPGs.

    In the past with the COE proces if there was a flight cancelation or other change, you could amend your COEm it usually took 24 hrs or less to do,
    If it takes 7 days for the application to be approved and if you had a change of plan , and your flight was changed to the next day or two , let's say.
    How can you get a new Thai Pass if it takes 7 days to do another one?
