Digital Health Pass to be required for domestic flights
THE PUBLIC HEALTH Ministry has confirmed the introduction of a Digital Health Pass for use by passengers on domestic flights.
The ministry confirmed last Wednesday (Sept 8) that it has signed a threeyear agreement with the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) and the Airlines Association of Thailand (AAT) for the use of the app on flights with seven airlines so far.
The seven airlines are Bangkok Airways, Thai Smile, Air Asia, Air Asia X, Nok Airways, Lion Airways and Vietjet Air.
The Digital Health Pass is an electronic health certificate that will receive and store information from the Health Ministry on an indivudal’s vaccine status which will be incorporated into the existing Mor Prom app.
Citizens will receive a Digital Health Pass when they have successfully been administered two
COVID-19 vaccinations or have successfully undergone COVID-19 testing at a hospital designated by the ministry.
At this stage, the Digital Health Pass will be used for domestic flights only and is expected to become operational soon. However, it may well be utilised for service in shops, restaurants and venues where customers are required to provide proof of their vaccine status at a later stage.
Those who have been vaccinated but do not receive the Digital Health Pass on its release are advised the check with the hospital where they were vaccinated.
