The UK Passenger Locator Form

Eligibility requirements - UK standard visitors visa

The UK is now leading the world in the fight against COVID-19 with a highly successful mass immunizationThe UK Passenger Locator Form program. However, the country must still protect its borders and track those that enter the country. As such, anyone entering the UK, regardless of if they as UK citizen or another nationality, must now complete the Passenger Locator form 48 hours before entering the UK.

Information required for the form

The form needs to be completed online and available to show immigration officials on arrival in the UK either on your phone, other mobile device or as a hard (paper) copy. To complete the form, you will need the following information:

· All passport details

· Complete travel details including date and time, flight number and seat number

· The address where you will quarantine for 10 days in the UK (*Thailand is not currently viewed as “high-risk”, so hotel quarantine is not required)

· Valid contact details for your stay in the UK

· Details of your negative coronavirus test, which must have been completed no more than 72 hours before your original flight’s departure

Where can I get a COVID-19 test in Pattaya?

You must get a COVID-19 test performed by a reputable hospital otherwise, you may be refused entry into the UK. All the leading hospitals in Pattaya carry out testing, and you will get the results back within 48 hours. However, we recommend using Bangkok Hospital Pattaya as they are currently the most professional and cheapest.
