Travellers who have already received a Thailand Pass QR code, and will be entering Thailand from 24 December, 2021 onwards will be subject to the requirements as follows:
- They must have proof of a confirmed payment for at least a 7-day stay at an approved accommodation; such as, a SHA++ hotel, within a Blue Zone Sandbox destination.
The prepayment must also include the expenses for 1 RT-PCR test.
