A couple of questions about unvaccinated entry to Thailand

Hopefully @Faz can clarify.
Question 1 ( asking for a friend )

We see from this article that the unvaccinated can enter Thailand with a negative PCR test 72 within 72 hours before departure negating the need for quarantine.

 

https://thethaiger.com/news/national/unvaccinated-no-longer-required-to-quarantine-in-thailand-and-other-countries?utm_source=Thaiger+Daily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2022-04-23
 

But a recent article from the “ other “ Thailand forum resident journalist some 12 hours ago states :

”  Unvaccinated travellers will be welcomed if they present proof of a negative RT-PCR test no more than 72 hours before their trip and register via Thailand Pass. They will be quarantined for five days, with another RT-PCR test on day 4-5. They will also be advised to do self-antigen testing during their stay. High-risk visitors will be quarantined for five days.”

While I tend to agree with the Thaiger version I would like some confirmation that this is more factually correct.

Question 2 

I received 2 doses of Pfizer in Thailand ( 10th and 31st Aug 2021 ) but have had no booster/3rd jab since then , I have all the certificates but see no expiry date on anything. My question is: as more than 6 months has passed am I classified as vaccinated or unvaccinated in line with the travel requirements stated above. ??

Q1.

From the official TAT website - rules for unvaccinated from May 1st, 2022.
Thailand lifts RT-PCR testing requirement for international arrivals from 1 May 2022 - TAT Newsroom

 

New entry rules for unvaccinated travellers:

International travellers who are unvaccinated or are not fully vaccinated will also no longer be required to show proof of a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR test nor undergo an arrival test.

They are required to register for a Thailand Pass with a 5-day hotel booking and an insurance policy with coverage no less than US$10,000 (reduced from US$20,000).

Once arriving in Thailand, they must proceed to undergo the quarantine for 5 days and undergo an RT-PCR test on Day 5.

Exception is made for unvaccinated travellers who are able to upload proof of a negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of travel via the Thailand Pass system, they – like those fully vaccinated – will be allowed entry and are free to go anywhere in the kingdom.

While in Thailand, both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers are advised to strictly follow health and safety standards. Travellers who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms should get tested. If testing positive, they must get the appropriate medical treatment.
 

Q2.
Fully vaccinated is receiving the appropriate number of jabs as per the manufacturers recommendations.

I personally know a couple of foreigners who applied for and obtained the TP after having just 2 AZ shots in the UK, well over 6 months ago.
