Registration for Thailand’s Test & Go quarantine waiver is closed indefinitely. And travellers already approved to enter Thailand under the Test & Go quarantine exemption program have until January 15 to enter the country.
In the weekly meeting of the CCSA, chaired by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha, the Center for the Management of the Covid19 Situation decided to continue the suspension of the immigration program until further notice.
Those who have received a QR code of the Thailand Pass will be allowed to enter Thailand under the Test & Go program in the coming days, with the last group of approved Test & Go travellers arriving on January 15. These travellers must undergo two RT-PCR tests, one on arrival and one on the seventh day in Thailand.
But there’s also good news: more destinations have been approved to welcome tourists as part of the sandbox entry program, along with Phuket, which has remained open to tourists – Krabi, Phang Nga and the trio of islands off the coast of Surat Thani ( Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan, and Koh Tao) are approved for sandbox programs.
Last month, the CCSA urgently closed registrations for the Test & Go and Sandbox programs on December 21, excluding the Phuket Sandbox, after the Omicron variant surfaced. Most of the first cases involved travellers who recently entered Thailand from abroad.
