Thailand Covid Insurance for Thailand Pass


Recommended Posts

insurance_article_main_image.jpg

One of the most important requirements for visitors to Thailand, now that the old rules have been lifted, is the COVID-19 insurance plan for foreigners, which covers the traveler for at least $10,000. In addition to meeting all the other requirements, the traveler must also have a valid visa and a Thailand Pass. This health insurance is an extra safety measure to make sure that the traveler will be able to pay for all costs if they get COVID-19 or die from it while they are in the kingdom.

 

When it comes to documentation, Thai immigration authorities are notoriously rigorous, and they only accept insurance from a select few providers. If you’re going to travel to Thailand, a number of insurance companies in Thailand have teamed together to create COVID-19 insurance plans that will be approved by immigration, and these policies may be acquired quickly and conveniently online.

 

What are the most affordable options?

 

Currently there is a FWD Covid Insurance policy for only ฿650 (19 USD) policy which will meet the entry requirements.

In order to qualify for the FWD Covid Insurance policy you need to meed one of the following requirements

  • apply 14+ days prior the policy effective date, or
  • provide negative PCR test result within 72 hours prior to the policy effective date

If you cannot meet these requirements then you may be interested in WorldTrips Covid InsuranceMSIG Covid Insurance, or LUMA Covid Insurance.

 

What is the recommended policy?

 

We recommend the LUMA Covid Insurance as they has instant approval, and you can apply for your Thailand Pass right after you get the document with 1 minute. The LUMA Covid Insurance will also automatically cover travel to Singapore, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, and Vietnam.

 

What document do I upload for Thailand Pass?

 

If you purchase a policy from any of the featured policies below you will receive a PDF document which will contain a single page letter which will mention the following things

  • Full Name of the traveler
  • Coverage amount $10,000+
  • Coverage in USD / EUR
  • Clear mention of COVID-19 coverage
  • Mention of travel to Thailand, or global travel coverage

You can export the single page as an image (or simply take a screenshot), and then use the image to apply for your Thailand Pass.

This is not correct! Any travel insurance with health coverage will do. You need a certificate from the insurance company for the Thailand Pass application, which is something the insurer gladly provides.

Sorry this rule was changed earlier this year.

Any policy can be used as long as it mentions coverage amount (or unlimited), and travel to Thailand.

Price is irrelevant until you know what is covered and what is not. The problem is with disclosure of the details.

Each insurer has their own policy rules which are provided on the links.

If you have any specific questions, or requests I may be able to help you.

Actually, they changed it last year; October or November, if my memory serves me right.

 

Also, if they haven't changed it again since my last travel, you do not need specific covid coverage to get a Thailand Pass.

 

It does seem odd that you update the info on the minimum insured amount but not the info that may prevent people from buying an insurance using your links.

I would like for a mod to remove that excerpt.

The general copy was old copy for an article we have been running for some time now.

You can use any insurance policy, but we never get rejections on Thailand Pass applications for the showcased insurers.

I have informed the confused team member because this was a requirement to use our services in the past because we did not want to risk a rejection from the DDC being unaware of a specific policy format, or wording.

I have a Marriage Visa valid until April next year (with multiple Re Entry permit) and I plan to go to Singapore for a few days. Upon my return to Bangkok I will need a Thailand Pass; how many days should my Covid insurance coverage be if I don’t have any plans to leave Thailand in the next 12 months?

You will only need 30 days of covid 19 insurance.

Ubon Joe already gave you the right information, but be aware there is some stuff to be done to get entry to Singapore (I am going there tomorrow).  If you were vaccinated in Thailand you will need to have your vaccination status verified online by entering your details and uploading the QR code - you'll then be emailed a letter to present to Singapore immigration.  Here:   https://eservices.ica.gov.sg/STO1/VCP

Then, (up to) three before you fly, you need to fill out a SG arrival form and health declaration which, again, includes uploading your vaccination status.  Here:  https://eservices.ica.gov.sg/sgarrivalcard/

There is actually more to do than there is to get a Thailand Pass but it is simple enough.

(At least I hope that's all there is to do - guess I'll find out in the morning if not)
