As more and more Thai citizens are repatriated back into the country, the Thai Government has set up stringent health screening processes to decrease the chances of coronavirus spreading from arriving passengers.
The process begins upon arrival when citizens are greeted by Thai officials who brief them on the quarantine requirements when reentering the country.
Following the normal screening process, passengers must then complete a form providing their residential address and any congenital disorders.
Arrivals are then told to install an application on their phone where they must register so they can be tracked.
In the port of arrival, their temperature is taken. If they register above 37.5 degrees Celsius, they are checked a second time for confirmation. Passengers whose temperature remains above the limit are immediately taken to the hospital for further testing.
Those who register under the temperature limit may collect their luggage and proceed through thermal scanners.
Passengers are then taken to a quarantine facility where they are assigned separate rooms, undergo another temperature check, and are briefed on the rules during their 14-day stay.
The process takes approximately three hours from disembarkation to arrival at the quarantine facility.
