Getting a Thailand Pass
Before applying, it would be wise to do your research to determine whether or not you are willing and able to cover the costs and go through the process associated with traveling to Thailand at the moment. There are a couple of options available to you that involve getting something called a “Thailand Pass.” The entire process for each option can be read in more detail on this page.
Please note that as of mid December, the “Test & Go” option has been suspended, meaning that, at minimum, travelers from outside of the country will be required to undergo at least a 7 day quarantine upon arrival in Thailand. The only two options that will be available for now will be the Blue Sandbox Program and the Alternative Quarantine. Please review the details from the link above for more information.
