Just recently, I went on assignment to Jordan. I am a Swedish citizen, but I travelled to a country not in the 60+ countries that can go to Thailand with only one night/waiting for PCR test quarantine. So it was a bit more complicated to go from Jordan to Thailand.
Now, I am in Bangkok for a 7-night “Sandbox”, but the Thai Pass form was challenging to fill in, mainly since it required details about the first vaccination and the second. I uploaded my EU vaccination pass on each question regarding the vaccine. I suppose that from the QR code, the whole vaccination history could be seen.
The never-ending bureaucracy
Anyhow, it took just three days to have the Thai Pass granted. At Amman airport, the staff from Qatar did ask for all the documents such as hotel booking, insurance and my flight ticket out of Thailand (something I don’t require since I have a VISA). According to the Thai Pass info, you don’t need to show those documents mentioned above. They are already required to get the Thai Pass. But ok, I could find them in my mail history. It is mentioned in the remarks of the Thai Pass information that additional documents might be requested to be able to board the aircraft.
PCR tests in Jordan and Thailand
I got my PCR test in the hotel in Jordan. A good service that many hotels can arrange there.
Landing in Thailand was a similar experience in Bangkok to Phuket. Everyone was seated on blue plastic chairs, and documents were inspected. Most attention was given to Thai Pass and PCR tests. I asked about the Mor Chana app, but they didn’t talk about it.
The passing through immigration and customs was smooth, and I got my private transportation to Novotel Siam Square. A Quick check-in followed and then up the room. Thirty minutes later, a nurse showed up to do PCR in my nose. I was still waiting for the results. The hotel staff said it would take 7-12 hours.
Then I will stay for seven nights, and another Antigen will be done at 10 a.m on the day before I travel domestically.
