All Travelers arriving in Thailand must fill in the health form (T.8 form) accurately and truthfully and have to download the “AOT Airport of Thailand” mobile (by scanning the QR Code.) to record their information and monitor their health signs and symptoms until completing the duration of quarantine (or duration of monitoring).
