Documents to show at airport


Recommended Posts

I have got my Thai Pass sorted. I am flying from the UK, with a tourist visa via Thai Airways for a few weeks.

I have my RT-PCR test booked.

Apart from my Thai pass, PCR certificate, passport and ticket. What else do I need to show/take?

 

I will print everything out - hotel booking, insurance, etc just in case

Immigration officials may also ask for evidence of adequate finances and have refused entry to people who could not show this. This is not defined in law and can be interpreted in a number of ways (i.e. backhanders demanded)

 

Very unlikely though.....I have never been asked in 30 years.

My wife and I were interrogated and nearly refused entry a few times in the past. Are we working in Thailand? Why are we staying so long? Where is my money coming from, show me the proof.

 

We got Thailand Elite visas and this never happened again.

 

However during this initial Thailand Pass phase I think they will be more relaxed til tourist numbers rise and you are unlikely to be interrogated.

If fully vaccinated you may need proof of that when entering.

Are you entering on the test and go if vaccinated or unvaccinated for the 10 day quarantine.

Make sure you have hard copies of the documents you submitted to get your Thailand Pass. The issue of showing them seems to happen at the airline check in desk where airline staff are following the old COE rules where passengers did have to show all documents. While you may not have to show them, better to have copies. The airline will also ask for proof of a return or onward ticket showing you are leaving Thailand. 

 

Upon arrival in Thailand you will only need to show the Thailand Pass, rather than the documents you submitted to get your approval, when going through immigration.

I was quite sure you DO NOT have to show an onward ticket if you arrive with a visa. For example a 60 day tourist visa.

Although the airline may not let you board the flight if you only have a one way ticket 

If you have a valid visa of any kind a return or onward ticket is not required for entry to the country. It has been the same for many years. 

Only a few embassies and consulates are requiring a return or onward ticket to apply for a tourist visa.

Re-entered Thailand yesterday from Dubai. Immigration asked for my Thailand Pass , nothing else. Entered no problem.

May I ask if you came to Bangkok or Phuket and if the flight was full? 

Was reading some reports of half empty flights here before.

Emirates Dubai to Bkk on Wednesday morning was 99% full, as it was going out the previous week.

I entered Thailand from Dubai about two weeks  ago and they wanted to see hard copies of everything , Thai Pass, vax cert, hotel booking, insurance and Boarding card!  twice before even getting to immigration.

So maybe they removing the pointless additional checks we went through but i would have hard copies of everything just in case it reverts to type

The original poster indicated he was arriving on a tourist visa; therefore, a return or onward ticket will be required by the airline when checking in.

The safest/cheapest option is to "rent" an airline ticket confirmation from a real-life travel agency.

 

OneWayFly.com is a service that books a real return ticket in your name, then cancels it for you later.

i was in a rush when booking my flight, and not 100% if i dropped a gooly? 

i am hoping to get a 90 day non-imm-o for married to a Thai

seen a half decent price so booked, now i am looking my 90 day is near 91 days 

does my day landing in Thailand count which is the 8th or the 7th when i turn up

at manchester airport. my reasoning goes if i was on a boat they only count

arrival in Thailand so same same but most of us have had issues at Airports 

before. anyone know 100%. Cheers,

The 90 days from your visa starts on the day you enter the country.

I think that is the most important point.

I.e. it should be obvious that you have a valid health insurance, otherwise you would not be allowed to enter Thailand. But it's still a good idea to have that document available on arrival.
