The Tourism Authority of Thailand has unveiled “Entry Thailand”, an online platform to facilitate vaccinated international visitors to Thailand.
The e-service, which is available at entrythailand.go.th/journey/1, is an integrated effort among 11 agencies including the Tourism and Sports Ministry, the Public Health Ministry and the Interior Ministry.
It is the first step-by-step service that covers all the procedures required by the government for Thais and foreigners who want to fly to Thailand.+
Step one in the process is to register for a Certificate of Entry (COE). The website will link to an online form by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after clicking on the registration button.
Step two is to book a flight and the website also shows a list of available flights.
Step three is to book a quarantine accommodation and again the website has a list of alternative state quarantine, alternative local quarantine and alternative hospital quarantine facilities.
Step four is to purchase and submit proof of Covid-19 health insurance.
Step five is to check COE status and prepare additional documents before travelling.
The last step is to download the “Thailand Plus” app and register. The app is available on both the Apple Store and Google Play store at thailandplus.in.th/en/download.
