Filming in Thailand - The new "Thailand Pass".

Bangkok Video Productions will assist all international film companies with all Visas and Film Permits wanting to come to Thailand to film.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) in collaboration with the Digital Government Development Agency (DGDA) is currently developing the Thailand Pass System to replace the Certificate of Entry (COE) system.

With the proposed full reopening of Thailand, along with its easing restrictions and the goal to revitalize the economy, Thai Authorities are planning to replace the slow-paced COE system with a faster Thailand Pass system to be used starting on November 1, 2021.

What Is Thailand Pass

The Thailand Pass system is a web-based system designed to make the documentation process of travelers entering Thailand more efficient than the Certificate of Entry application.

Just like the Certificate of Entry, it will collect data for entry forms required, but what makes it better than the Certificate of Entry (COE) is that it collects both travel and health information like vaccine certificates and it will help facilitate the filing of the TM6 and T8 Forms.

Through the Thailand Pass system, the expected documents and other paperwork requirements imposed on by the COVID-19 will be addressed.

The goal of the new Thailand Pass is to help support the country’s “Ease of Travel” system after it reopens and to expedite the process of filling out information and uploading travel documents.

Who Can Apply for the Thailand Pass

The Thailand Pass is required for all travelers whether Thai or foreigners based on the following travel restrictions:

  1. Fully Vaccinated from the Listed Countries
    Fully vaccinated travelers, both Thai and foreigners will be allowed to enter Thailand without quarantine or sandbox stay. They only need to stay for 1 night in an ASQ or SHA+ Hotel while they wait for the COVID 19 RT-PCR test result that was taken upon arrival. The quarantine-free program is initially available for low-risk countries, and currently, there are 46 countries on the list. You must have stayed in these countries for at least 21 days before traveling to Thailand.

    Fully vaccinated travelers who are coming from non-listed countries are eligible to enter Thailand without quarantine. They must enter Thailand under the Sandbox Programs such as Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Phuket or Samui Sandbox. They are required to spend 7 nights in an accredited SHA+ Hotel in these Sandbox areas before they will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand.

  2. Non-Vaccinated under Quarantine Program
    Non-vaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers are still allowed to travel to Thailand. They must undergo a mandatory quarantine of 10 nights in an accredited ASQ or AQ quarantine hotel before they will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand.

And if approved, you will receive an email of your QR Entry Code or Thailand Pass ID which you will use upon entering Thailand.

COE Still Required For Some Travelers

Though the Thailand Pass System will replace the Certificate of Entry (COE) system, there are still some specific travelers entering Thailand that will need to use the Certificate of Entry.

Who are those specific travelers?

Travelers who will enter through Alternative Hospital Quarantine (AHQ); those traveling by sea (yacht, cruise ships, etc.) and by land

Travelers who are entering Thailand by air before November 1, 2021

If your COE has been issued before November 1, 2021 please go to the weblink provided to you the and download your updated COE to match the new entry requirements for November 1, 2021 onward.

Based on experience, the common problem for COE or Thailand Pass applications being rejected and travelers being denied to board their flight is that some insurance policies are not properly worded. Your COVID 19 insurance must expressly state that it covers up to 50,000 USD medical expenses including COVID 19 and it must cover your whole stay in Thailand.

News: OCTOBER 22nd, 2021 Thailand is now open from Nov 1st for filming assignments. BVP will assist you with all Visa and entry requirements as well as all necessary filming permits.

Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has just released a list of 46 countries and/or territories that have been approved to take part in the planned reopening of the country from November 1. The list of countries is detailed below was listed on the Ministry’s website late on Thursday, October 21.

The government has recently outlined 7 conditions that will determine if someone can enter the kingdom quarantine-free. The following conditions have been communicated by the Bureau of Risk Communication and Health Behavior Promotion, part of the Disease Control Department.

1. Foreign visitors must arrive by air and come from a list of “low-risk” countries approved by the Public Health Ministry
2. Have proof of vaccination with 2 doses of a recognized Covid-19 vaccine
3. Have a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of departure from your home country
4. Have at least US$50,000 in Covid-19 insurance coverage
5. Have proof of a hotel booking
6. Travelers must download the Mor Chana app and take a second PCR test on arrival or within 24 hours of arrival
7. If the second test is negative, visitors can continue their journey without any further quarantine

Despite the planned reopening being just 10 days away, the rules for vaccinated adults travelling with unvaccinated children remains unclear. Clarity is also needed on whether travelers need proof of a hotel booking beyond their first night in the kingdom and if this applies to expats with homes here.

Thai PBS World reports that the government is moving to a 3-model approach for admitting foreign arrivals. The first – and original – model is that unvaccinated visitors will be subject to mandatory hotel quarantine for between 7 and 14 days. The second model is the sandbox model currently in operation in Phuket, Samui and other tourist destinations, which is being extended to several other provinces. The third model will be the quarantine-free model, which allows approved “low-risk” countries or territories, such as the ones recently approved below, to enter without undergoing quarantine.
