CAAT issues notice to airlines on strict entry policy


The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) issued airlines with a special Notice to Airmen on the country’s latest entry policy on Tuesday.

CAAT ordered every airline to carefully check passenger documents and monitor the Covid-19 situation chiefly relating to the Omicron variant, while airlines must see that their passengers strictly follow the new measures.

The notice also highlighted guidelines for passengers to follow:

- Passengers who received a QR Code from the Thailand Pass system can enter Thailand under approved conditions.

- Passengers who have not received the QR Code will have to wait for approval. They can enter Thailand only after approval.

- New passengers cannot register to travel under the Test & Go and Sandbox schemes, which are temporarily on hold. However, these passengers can register under the Alternative Quarantine scheme or the Phuket Sandbox programme.

- Passengers already approved under the Test & Go and Sandbox schemes will have to take a second RT-PCR test seven days after arrival free of charge.
