The UK government needs to explain why Astra Zeneca in Thailand is not the same as Astra Zeneca in the UK. It's time for the Ambassador to demand an explanation and for the government to provide one.

It may  have a lot to do with Thailand's continuing use of Chinas Sinovac and Sino pharm vaccines which i can fully understand .

If they're going to impede vaccinated British citizens' ability to return to the UK, then it's incumbent upon them to explain exactly why they're doing so.   My guess is that they're most wo

They should tell us the reason (and also tell the Thai government). 


It would be good to see @British Consular Team active in this thread, or addressing the issue elsewhere. 

Absolutely. Problem is it's a holiday. They don't work or respond on holidays or weekends. There is a track record with that.

They have stated that those vaccinated in Thailand also are not allowed to get a NHS vaccine passport as well.

So if anyone did make the effort to get back into the UK either direct and with quarantine, or via another European country that does recognise the jabs, then in order to avoid this hassle in future they would have to receive another 2 jabs in the UK to be recognised as vaccinated.    Did any pharma companies trial 4 Pfizer jabs or 2 Pfizer + 2 AZ to see if this is safe or did the possibility of countries acting idiotically and forcing people into this position not feature in any of the vaccine trials?   



Why bother!


The UK scrapped plans for a vaccination certificate. 


2 x AZ are recognised in the UK if administered in the UK/EU/USA



UK residents arriving back in the UK who aren't fully vaccinated must take a pre-departure test, quarantine for 10 days and take a PCR test on day two and day eight of quarantine. If these travelers are arriving in England, they can end their quarantine early via the Test to Release scheme. 


Quarantine does not mean quarantine. You can stay 'at home' and you complete a passenger locator form


Travel from the rest of the world if you are not fully vaccinated

From 4am Monday 4 October, you must follow these rules if you:

  • do not qualify under the fully vaccinated rules
  • are partially vaccinated
  • are not vaccinated

Before you travel to England you must:

After you arrive in England you must:

  • quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 days
  • take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8

You may be able to end quarantine early if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme.

There is a government online petition that you can all sign.


Not sure if the link is allowed - just in case it is



Need to be British or resident.

"The UK Government should recognise all vaccinations using WHO approved vaccines for travellers arriving from amber list countries, regardless of the country it was administered in. Currently they only recognise NHS administered vaccinations plus ones from the EU and US."

Amber or red being treated the same I guess.

I think this article is a bit deceptive, it is trying to blame the vaccine for Thailand being on the UK red list when in fact that is not actually true, someone vaccinated in to UK returning to the UK from Thailand is required to quarantine also - the vaccine has nothing to do with it


If Thailand was removed from the UK red list then they may in fact recognise AZ and Pfizer administered in Thailand but possibly not and of the Chinese vaccines 


Sound theory.



Unfortunately not:-


Travel from the rest of the world if you are fully vaccinated

From 4am Monday 4 October, you will qualify as fully vaccinated if you are vaccinated either:

  • under an approved vaccination programme in the UK, Europe, USA or UK vaccine programme overseas
  • with a full course of the Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna or Janssen vaccines from a relevant public health body in Australia, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bahrain, Brunei, Canada, Dominica, Israel, Japan, Kuwait, Malaysia, New Zealand, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan or the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
