Bangkok Business News quoted Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin as saying that Thai PM Prayuth Chan-ocha had a New Year gift for the Thai people.

 

A completely free online vaccination passport. 

 

There was no mention in their article if such generosity was to be afforded to foreigners vaxxed in the kingdom, notes ASEAN NOW. 

 

A hard copy still costs 50 baht, said the media, though earlier reports quoting health minister and DPM Anutin Charnvirakul suggested this was to be free too.

 

It would not be the first time that different high level government figures were shown not to be speaking to each other.

 

BBN explained how Thais would only need their IDs, proof of being double-vaxxed with a QR code, their passport and travel documents to benefit from Prayuth's New Year gift.

 

The article specifically mentioned Thais with no reference as to the possibility of non-Thais benefitting.

If it's part of Mor Phrom, and I think it is or will be, then many/most/all non-Thais vaccinated here should also get prayut's "gift"?

 

There is already a pick for "International Certificate", which right now is simply a request form for the physical yellow book. Maybe that will be re-jiggered?

That's not a problem, that's a feature.

It needs to be in English if it's intended for international travel....Thai language only probably won't cut it....and no mention of Sinovac or the other Chinese one...

If anyone has access to the Mor Prom App, like many foreigners due. The vaccine certificate is easily found on the App. It's the same as the vaccine passport which is not electronic but a yellow book you pay 50 baht for. The Digital health pass on the App also has a scannable QR code which shows the person scanning it your certificate....

That's great. No doubt it will be accepted for travel in Thailand, but how about airlines for international flights, and foreign shores? Will they accept the Mor Prom app to verify the vaccination status?

I thought they did, it's more authentic than the paper certificate they give you which could always be forged

Guess his free gift of a vaccine passport to travel abroad to the millions of Issan Thais ,  many now jobless with no money for anything let alone foreign holidays due to his policies,  well be welcomed 

Even before COVID, the average Thai [the greater percentage] weren't disposed to traveling abroad - only the few that could afford it.

How is this supposed to work internationally?

Anyone can use their phones camera app and it will pop open the QR codes certificate on their phone when scanned and the pop up opened.
