The European Union (EU) has certified the “Thailand Digital Health Pass”, also called “Mor Prompt” vaccination records, to facilitate residents in Thailand to travel to over 60 countries/territories that are part of the EU Digital COVID Certificate System.

This has made Thailand become the second ASEAN country to join the system after Singapore, Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul told the Associated Press today, February 10th.

The approval allows Thai travelers to use the certificate recorded on the system and show their health and vaccination records of Covid-19 before traveling to countries/territories under the EU Digital COVID Certificate System or the EU DCC.

According to the Ministry, the “Thailand Digital Health Pass” would display two different pieces of important information being the following:

  1. Basic information for identity verification: Full name, National 13-digit ID number, age, nationality, and passport number (if any).
  2. Personal information relating to the Covid-19 Coronavirus: Covid-19 vaccination record valid for 180 days from the date of receiving the latest shot, Covid-19 testing result using RT-PCR or ATK tests (only by the EU-approved brand) valid within 7 days from the date of the last test, the Covid-19 recovery data valid for 180 days from the date of diagnosis. It will be displayed in a QR Code form with a digital signature of the person to prevent document forgery.
