Digital Health Pass to be used soon for domestic flights in Thailand


Passengers will soon use the so-called Digital Health Pass for domestic flights in Thailand. 

The Mor Prom app of the Public Health Ministry was initially used to make a Covid-19 vaccine shot appointment but was later modified to only include the function of reporting adverse vaccine reactions.

Now the app will soon add the Digital Health Pass. This pass contains the user’s vaccination details and Covid status which could be used to gain entry to certain places where people have to prove their vaccine status.

Yesterday, The Public Health Ministry inked an agreement with the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) and the Airlines Association of Thailand (AAT) over the use of the app for flights.

Deputy public health minister said the ministry is responsible for providing information for the app to function, including vaccination details, RT-PCR or ATK results and a record of disease infections, Bangkok Post reported.

He said with restrictions eased by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) aviation businesses are now resuming operations under a practice of universal Covid-19 prevention, the report added.

Sathit said the aviation industry is now ready to follow new measures to help suppress the spread of Covid-19. That was one reason why the ministry signed the three-year agreement to use the Digital Health Pass for the airline industry and its customers.

The ministry’s partners such as drug stores, hospitals and clinics should provide information to be used on Mor Prom so the ministry can update the application with relevant data, he said.
