Can I use the Thailand Pass with my children?
The Thailand Pass is available for all passport holders, regardless of age. Children must have their own individual passports and meet the other requirements for visa-free travel.
- Children under the age of 18 can be added to a parent’s application. They do not need a separate application. Once the Thailand Pass is approved, the parent and the child will receive their own QR code.
- Children under 18 will need to be covered by insurance. They can have their own policy or be included in a family policy. If you are getting a family policy, make sure all names are clearly stated.
- Children enter the country under the same scheme as their parents. If you are vaccinated and don’t need a test, your child does not need one. If you are doing an RT-PCR test, your child will complete a test as well. That’s it! Visiting Thailand with your children is simple if done right.
Individuals who do not meet these criteria must submit their own registration in all other cases.
Do I need to print out the Thailand Pass?
No, you do not need to print out the Thailand Pass. You can present your digital copy on a mobile device or laptop. However, it is always best to carry a printed copy in case of an emergency.
