How do you book and pay for an ASQ?


Recommended Posts

Hey

 

I'm going to Thailand on an O visa and the embassy told me to book an ASQ. They provided me with the list of all ASQ hotels but no further information. 


How do I book and pay for an ASQ hotel? Do I just use the normal booking functionality on the hotels website or do I have to email them to book? If the latter, how do I pay them? 

 

Thank you.

You book the ASQ-hotel yourself and pay in advance. 

I went through this process about 6 weeks ago in the US. After choosing the flight I contacted the hotel using the email in the ASQ brochure to make sure the room type I wanted was available. I then t

The embassy sends you a list of ASQ hotels with all the contact details you use, FB is not required for anything.   I despise FB.

My friend got an answer from the ASQ hotell he contacted, that he should book via the thai-embassy!!! A lot of shady information floating around it seems. Anybody knows how his routin goes/works??

My Wife called around the hotels to find which were available (this was back in July)

I then found the best method of contacting the ASQ hotels was via their facebook messaging pages. 

 

The hotels usually responded quickly (within 30mins)

 

Once questions were answered the hotel e-mailed me a link to a specific ASQ booking page. 

 

On this ASQ booking page I had to answer some questions about agreeing to be quarantined, agreeing to Covid-19 tests etc. I also paid the deposit on this link. 

 

Once complete the hotel e-mailed the ASQ Booking conformation. 

 

I submitted the ASQ booking to the Thai Embassy (London) who then issued me with the Certificate of Entry. 

Note: The Embassy organised the flight and had that booking already along with all other required documents.

 

The Embassy did not require the Covid-19 Test and Fit to Fly Certificates - these were required for Check in at the Airport.

Wonder how long before fake ASQ hotel FB pages start appearing, with chat links pointing to Thai ASQ hotel manager in Nigeria... Can pay Western Union...

If i'm not mistaken the list includes all the e-mail address's, e-mail the ones that appeal to you with your arrival date and ask for availability, 15 nights from when you arrive.

I think it's 14 nights which is 15 days.

No one forces you to use any FB-link. You can find the correct ASQ-hotel list if using for example Google.

Once you've got a seat confirmed embassy will send you a list of all ASQ hotels and tell you to book.

 

Once booked and paid send confirmation to embassy.

Agreed Facebook is not a ‘requirement’ to contact the hotels and no one is forcing people to use facebook. 

 

However, from overseas, if someone doesn’t want to phone hotels directly, they can be contacted by e-mail or by facebook messenger.

 

Most businesses in Thailand have a Facebook account and a Line account - its easier to get hold of businesses on Facebook messenger than through any other media, except the phone, but then you are dealing with language issues and expensive overseas phone bills. 

 

All hotels I contacted Via Facebook messenger responded quickly and answered all my questions. 

I found this the most efficient way of contacting the available ASQ hotels to ask questions. 

 

Others may prefer e-mail. 

 

If someone is trying desperately to secure an ASQ booking I think whether or not Facebook is a likeable or detestable application is completely irrelevant - using the best tool for your requirements is paramount.

 

In this case, Thai hotels respond to questions Facebook messenger faster than anything else other than a phone call.
