Don't be scammed into paying for Thailand Pass

Recommended Posts

From Coconuts Bangkok

As if anything were free from scams, travelers to Thailand have been tricked into paying fees for what’s supposed to be a free process. 

The COVID-19 task force today took a break from its usual doomcasting to note reports of people paying “registration fees” for the Thailand Pass system, which has been suspended since late last month due to the nation’s latest wave of infections.

“To reiterate again, there is no registration fee for Thailand Pass,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Natapanu Nopakun said. “There have been reports of people asked illegally to pay registration fees. It is a service rendered free of charge.”

When the system which facilitates travel from abroad for vaccinated travelers reopens, travelers should only apply via the official website rather than middlemen or agencies.

Looking at some of the Thailand Facebook pages there are quite a few that are going through agents or are looking for agents rather than doung it themselves, I long for the day when things get back as normal as possible and all that pass crap is done away with.
