Clarifications on QR code in Thailand Pass system

PEOPLE heading to Thailand have been warned of a fake registration website that looks very credible, while officials listed four reasons why some Thailand Pass applicants did not receive a QR code.

Government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkonghchana told reporters yesterday that in the first five days of Thailand’s reopening this month, 16,595 foreigners had entered the country.

He went on to say that 90,165 people had registered for the Thailand Pass and 33,788 had been approved.

He also warned people against the website, which scammers have set up to steal personal information.

As for not receiving a QR code after registering for a Thailand Pass, Foreign Ministry spokesman Tanee Sangrat said this may be because:

> The user did not upload a Covid-19 vaccination passport or the document was not clear;

> The information and attached documents do not meet requirements, such as bookings at a hotel that is not linked to hospitals listed for an RT-PCR test;

> Re-entering the information several times; and

> Incorrect email address or accounts whose storage is full.

Officials have also detected that Hotmail accounts are not able to receive replies from the Foreign Ministry. Microsoft Corp is working to solve the problem.

Tanee also said that travellers should allow time for the authorities to check the vaccination document.

Those who need to travel to Thailand urgently can contact the Thai embassy or consulate in their area. — The Nation/ANN
