The “Test & Go” travel scheme by Thailand is set to resume on 1 February for travellers going to the country, according to Richard Barrow in Thailand.
It is a scheme that requires arrivals to quarantine for online one night if they test negative for Covid-19.
The scheme is set to be reinstated with a few modifications; travelers now need to provide evidence of a hotel booking for at least 5 nights, according to The Nation Thailand.
Prior to the reinstatement, travelers were previously required to just isolate for one night.
Thailand’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) also announced the presumption of the Test & Go scheme, and they have said that all nationals are welcome to participate in the programme.
However, they have also added that the rules are subject to change.
The CCSA said that under the test & Go programme, travellers must:
- Provide proof of payment for two RT-PCR tests for their application
- Stay in a SHA Extra Plus hotel that’s partnered with a hospital on the first and fifth day of their visit.
- have insurance that covers both quarantine and hospitalisation, should they test positive for the coronavirus.
