Thailand Quarantine

Alternative Quarantine (AQ)

Alternative Quarantine (AQ) is the process of quarantine at government-approved hotels in Thailand and the cost will be at the traveler’s own expense. For foreign travelers, many hotels together with hospitals launched Alternative State Quarantine Packages for those returning from abroad.

The Thailand AQ hotels that have been approved by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health cover a wide price range from 22,000 THB to 60,000 THB for the quarantine period. You will be staying for the mandatory quarantine in Bangkok with better facilities, good atmosphere, in a clean and safe environment.

Update: Starting October 1, 2021 the quarantine period has been reduced to 7 nights for vaccinated travellers arriving in Bangkok, 10 days for unvaccinated travellers arriving by air or sea and 14 nights for unvaccinated travellers arriving by land.

What is normally included in the ASQ Package?

Normally, the Thailand quarantine package includes not only accommodation for 7 or 10 nights but also 3 meals a day, free WiFi, and private car transfer from the airport. A nurse is on call 24/7, and you will have your temperature taken and health checked 2 times a day. The package also includes COVID-19 tests that usually take place on the date of arrival, 6th and/or 9th day of the quarantine. If your COVID-19 test is positive, you will be transferred to the partner hospital.

The AQ package does not include consultation costs with doctors and any other treatments at the hospital other than the two COVID-19 tests. However, the costs related to COVID-19 hospitalisation will be covered by your COVID-19 insurance policy provider.

How to make a Quarantine Hotel Booking?

The best way to make a reservation for an AQ package is to contact the hotels directly.

COVID-19 Insurance

As you most probably already know, all incoming foreign travelers to Thailand must provide COVID-19 travel insurance. The insurance certificate must be submitted to the Thai embassy when applying for COE (Certificate of Entry) and needs to state explicitly that the health insurance is for 100,000 USD or more and COVID-19 is covered. If your insurance does not meet these requirements, you will not be allowed to travel to Thailand.

The easiest way to meet this requirement is choosing a COVID-19 insurance policy of a Thai insurance company as it will be tailored according to the government's requirements and therefore will be accepted by the Thai embassy. Getting a Thai insurance policy covering COVID-19 is easy as you can conveniently buy insurance online with a credit card and the insurance policy and COVID-19 certificate will be sent to you instantly.
