Will they accept my Thai driver's licence when taking a domestic flight?


Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I'm planning to take a domestic flight later this month, but

will VietJet or AirAsia accept my Thai driver's licence as ID

when I check in? Thai Lion did about half a year ago, though.

 

I have one more questions now. Will you still have to register

yourself on the government app for your heath condition before

flying? Or will you need any document that proves that you're

tested negative for Corona-virus and are fit to fly?

 

Thank you in advance.

I’d rather have it with me when traveling away from home for a multitude of non flight related reasons. 

What an excellent answer, very helpful. 

Air Asia has accepted my Thai DL as ID, one year ago, for a flight Utapao to Chiang Mai. (but I had my Passport with me in case of DL refused 😉 )

For domestic flight?

Absolutely not.

Temperature taken (maybe one, two, three times) and that's it.

Wearing mask mandatory of course.

 

I remember news from a while ago that they only accept passport for foreigners.

I'll try to find it...

Can't find an answer about passport.

(I have it with me on all flights/overnight trips).

Maybe someone can tell from recent experience.

Dear KhunBENQ,

 

Thank you for your info! That's exactly what I wanted!

Dear Pattaya46,

 

Thank you for your experience! That's definitely what I wanted

to know about.

 

When Thai Lion accepted my Thai DL as ID about a half year

ago, I had my passport with me just in case, too.

Any Government issed photo ID is usually accepted. If you check on the airline website when you book, there will be a section that covers their specific requirements.

Airlines often dont accept Pink ID as its in Thai, not the same language as the booking

 

Dear Peterw42,

 

Thanks for your info!

 

I'll probably fly with VietJet this time, a Vietnamese-affiliated

LCC, though.

Maybe they will, as will some hotels, but its not particularly wise to travel in Thailand, unless locally, without carrying your passport. In some circumstances (a car accident for example) you may have to produce it within 24 hours.  Not possible if it is stored several hundred kilometres away and not immediately accessible. 

 

Dear Pilotman,

 

The hotel where I stayed in BKK then asked me to show them

my passport because they needed some date like those on my

TM6 card to register me with the immigration office for TM30.

I ordered a new passport from the Australian embassy in Bangkok they immediately cancelled my old one. Had to wait 3 weeks for the new one. My cancelled passport was not accepted by the airline but my drivers licence was OK.
