Anyone have experience using the Saliva PCR (gargle) Test to enter Thailand?

R U joking . . . ?

 

IF you don't have a vax, get one.

 

Otherwise, have the tests the Thai Govt ask for.

 

OR stay at where you are and don't travel.

Actually the saliva test IS a PCR test which is what Thailand asks for, Im just curious if anyones actually used that method.

Nothings changed, you misunderstand what PCR means, it does not mean nasal swab test.  Both Saliva and nasal swab can be PCR tests.

Well just because its a pcr test doesnt mean its the pcr test they approve lol.  I know Brazil did not approve the saliva test even though its a PCR test.  At this point Im trying to convince my mother that the rapid antigen (pro atk) test where they just swab the start of your nostril will not in fact kill her.

I suspect they only accept nasal swab PCR.

 

Can't the testing be avoid and instead spend 5 days in a covid Prison upon arrival ?
