All travellers from the Disease Infected Zones must complete the T8 form.

The Airports of Thailand (AOT) has launched an application to enable travellers arriving from the Disease Infected Zones to submit the T8 form as required by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT).

All travellers from the Disease Infected Zones must complete the T8 form, via the AOT application or on paper, and submit it to the communicable disease control officials at the control post at the airport of disembarkation.

After downloading the AOT application, travellers are required to complete the T8 with their personal information including name, nationality, passport number, active mobile phone number and active e-mail address. The data will be stored for 14 days from the arrival date. This is to allow Thai health officials to contact the travellers in case of an emergency, e.g., passengers seated in close vicinity are tested positive for COVID-19.

This requirement is in line with the CAAT’s “Practical Guidelines for the Air Operators Relating to the Services to be Provided in the Territories outside Thailand Defined as Disease Infected Zones of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak,” issued on 8 March, 2020.

On 5 March, 2020, the Royal Thai Government Gazette announced the territories outside the Kingdom of Thailand: South Korea, Italy, Iran and China (including Hong Kong and Macau) as Disease Infected Zones for COVID-19. This announcement can be changed depending on the current situation.
