Test & Go Application Process changes
 
the days, Thailand Pass was sent in an instant after application (if proper documents and QR codes were loaded) are over...

Now from each application, accommodation reservations are sent to the hotel for confirmation. If the hotel does not confirm within 30 hours, application is rejected!
There are already reports of several people. whose application was rejected as hotels did not react...
needless to say that this will make the application process longer and even more difficult in general

confirmation mails also seem to be inconsistent; some got one immediately after application was submitted, some after the hotel confirmed reservation and some did not get any confirmation mail at all...

BP report states 30 hours, not 30 days!

Thailand Pass website states hotel will process application within 24 hours. Maybe more detail in Q&A.

So basically the first night has to be an approved hotel and then the 5th night also has to be a Thai Pass approved hotel. In the middle you can stay anywhere you want to? Is this correct?

over 23'000 applications for test & go during the first day, so the backlog is piling
wonder how many did multiple applications because of the system changes and bugs?
Test & Go gets off to good start (bangkokpost.com)

Has anyone been approved yet on this newly opened Test&Go?
I applied on first hours of opening, status is still reviewing.. Hopefully it's green as I should fly on the 7th.

I submitted my app for everything yesterday, and my trip is on February 10th. Will I have enough time? I meet all the requirements, booked the hotel, bought the insurance and did everything I was suppose to.

I heard from someone who is departing today and got this Thailand Pass in the morning, so within 48 hours
tey seem to give priority according to day of departure

make sure that the hotel confirms your reservation in the system

did you make sure that your hotel confirmed your reservation in the system?
I submitted 2 hours after they opened on Tuesday and also depart on 10. Should not be a problem as many have a much more tight schedule...

I just emailed my hotel and asked about this. But I already put the documents in the Test&Go site showing reserved "1st and 5th day + 2x PCR + transportations" fully paid with hotel stamps. Such a calm and relaxing start for a holiday :)

obviously they do not trust those documents as after submission, they send infos to the hotel and let them confirm....if they do not confirm within 24 or 30 hours (two different sources), application is rejected

I got denied, despite providing everything they need. What should I do? It says contact the hotel

Call the hotel and ask to speak directly to person who is responsible.

Yeah Iíve been in touch with the manager. Did they just not register me? I guess since I didnít pay the 3500THB BEFORE.
