Vaccine certificate and travel questions.


Recommended Posts

Hello all swaddee kap,

 

I plan to travel to Thailand within the next 12 -14 days and a few questions with regards to a vaccine certificate they seem to be asking me to upload when applying for a COE Pre Approval. 

 

I plan to travel on visa exempt (45 days from London, uk passport). 

 

It doesn't list anything on the official government website with regards to this, can anybody point me in the right direction as to what exactly it is they require, if anything?

 

I plan to get my 2nd jab on Sunday and am going to be staying in Bangkok for quarantine so I'm hoping I don't need to actually have the vaccine for 14 days before I can travel. is this rule still the same?

 

Am I right in only booking flights and hotel once the COE has been approved or should I book up my flights first as the website is a little confusing?

 

I under the assumption I only need the following docs for successful entry clearance:

 

Flight,

hotel, 

insurance, 

coe,

T.8 form, Do we have to print and fill this in before boarding, or will it be provided by the airline because they seem to give a link for it on the website,

declaration form,

Thailand plus app. 

 

I would appreciate any help with this matter,

 

Kind regards.

Are you applying to the Phuket Sandbox program or "Samui Plus"? As these do require proof of vaccination. otherwise, not needed.

Nothing required.

No issue; no time after jabs (jabs not even required) for ASQ.

You have 15 days after pre-approval of the COE to upload flight and hotel bookings. You will need to upload insurance to get pre-approval.

They where handing them out on the plane but if you can download before might as well.

Sheryl, general question as I look to traveling sometime in the next few months ...

What kind of 'proof of vaccination' does Thailand accept at the moment?

I have EU smartphone QR code, and yellow booklet and a certificate from the vaccinating unit.

Check on the embassy or official consulate website where you will be applying for the COE for info about what will be accepted. The proof accepted depends upon the country you will departing from.

You can find a link for all the embassies and official consulates here. https://www.thaiembassy.org/

It could be asked for when entering the country and they would accept what was used to get the COE. But the COE is the most important thing you need.

when you have this you upload to your application  note in the first round you do ,you get an  6 digit number record cos u need to login to do the next part

when you have all your travel documents and hotel booking  up load this and send i have my coe 4 hours later 

note in your first part application you need insurance 

 

tm8 u can print out and fill in by hand 

when u arrive in bkk you will be asked for your passport  your Coe  your insurance and your booking from your hotel when you are finished with passport control the people have your name and hotel on paper and will guide you to your transport  

i made a plastic folder of all this and copied twice was easy took about half hour to get through .

thanks for the info guys, i read on another topic that I should wait for the pre approval to be confirmed first before uploading the flight and hotel bookings, is this correct? there is a 'attach documents for further consideration' part on the pre approval part of the application form. should I drop the flight and hotel booking in here or wait until it gets confirmed and then book the dates I want to travel as I've read once your pre approval gets confirmed, you normally get you COE on the same day you upload you flight and hotel bookings.

on the pre approval, its asking for contact details in Thailand, seeing as I haven't booked a hotel yet. Should I leave this blank or could I use my wife place and number, which is where I intend to travel to once I finish quarantine?

When you have had 2nd jab download the NHS app complete a million questions and you can retrieve your covid passport with a QR code for each jab download and attach it to your COE to be safe wait 14 days after there is bound to be some eagle eyed jobsworth ready with a red pen 🤔

I plan to travel to Bangkok for quarantine and other posters have mentioned they have travelled without the vaccine cert, I'm going to be double jabbed when I travel but I dont want to wait 14 days!.... I do get what you mean about them being jobsworths however.

Are you actually uploading them before saving?

You drag and drop or browse for the doc then it opens in the COE there is a little tab or 3 I think and that attaches and uploads missed this countless times 🤔

Yes I'm uploading the passport and insurance docs like this perfectly fine, its just the vaccine cert it keeps asking me for which is causing the issue when you click the save and submit it just reloads the page and asks for the cert which members mentioned is not needed.

The system was changed earlier in May when they dropped the requirements (then fairly quickly reimposed them), at that time vaccination status was important as it determined actual quarantine time. It will be again so guess they can't be bothered amending the site again.
