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.
