The OP gives no link to the source, presumably a web page on the website of CCSA or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on which this information is based. Therefore, I shall treat is an uncorroborated rumour for the time being.

 

I don't know how official https://tp.consular.go.th/ is but as at 09.00 hours UTC on 26 November 2021, it still has this requirement listed:

Quote

Paid AQ / SHA Extra+ hotel reservation confirmation (for the duration of 1 day and including the fee for one RT-PCR test)

Source: https://tp.consular.go.th/en/plan

 

If the rumour is true, that web page will probably be updated on 1 December and until then, Thailand Pass applications will still require documents as per above to be uploaded.

Easing the restrictions just then when in many countries tourists coming from c-19 cases going to the roof.

Everyone can imagine what will happens here in January...

If rumor is true, the THAI Pass no longer needed for arrivals after 15 Dec. It’s all over the news.

Now I wish ( please please)  they would sort out the evisa  waiting time. Some countries apparently it works ok, France a complete mess, announcing up to 45 days wait !!  All the e visas I’ve had from numerous countries and Asia usually take about 48 hours!!!

And where is your link for that if it's "all over the news"

Even bigger joke is that if I nominate Novatel at the airport, I won't get a Thailand Pass unless I show proof of a 600 metre taxi fare and a pre-paid ATK. What would that be, 1000 baht? What's the point....

I see nothing about a taxi mentioned in the OP and anyway, how would you book and pre-pay a taxi trip?

 

Doesn't the arriving passenger have to travel from the airport to the hotel under guard from a hotel employee?

Pre-paid taxi, hotel and PCR test have been required since 1 July

Vital news I think, to reduce all the endless red tape to enjoy the country.

 

They will still find out though a massive drop in visitiors regardless.

Too much uncertainty still.

Late 2021 is soft re-opening and unless some nightmare new variant becomes dominant - I'd say October 2022 before things get rolling in the direction of normal.

 

I'd guess a lot of small businesses working capital will be wiped out by then...probably took them a decade/2 decades to pool that money to start a small biz.

$$$ from taxi

$$$ from test

 

Presumably the hotels still want a piece of the covid action in the absence of tourists.    

.....or the military :whistling: ?

I have not been able to find the publication of the requirements for the "exemption from quarantine" plan, also known as "test-and-go" plan, which I understand started on 1 November 2021 A.D. Gregorian calendar, in the Government Gazette. As an alternative, I have been reading related information on what seem to be official government websites, most recently the following:

what about the bars?

Good idea. Make the ATK Test there. And wait relaxed for the result with a cold beer. No need for a Hotel to do the job.

As at 11.00 h UTC, the website of CAAT still has this update of 4 November 2021 on its website. If the rumour about the change to an ATK test is true, they will probably update that web page on 4 December.

The guideline says "COVID-19 Health Insurance with minimum coverage of USD 50,000"

Is that Covid Insurance or health insurance that includes Covid cover?
