Hi brains trust,


I'm planning to travel to BKK on QF23 and then transfer onto EK to DXB on a different PNR. Since I land at 4:40pm, and my next flight is at 9:10pm, I'll need to check back in again. Does anyone know what the quarantine requirements are?


The only thing I can find is that I have to go to a hotel, do a PCR, get the all clear and come back to the airport...


Thanks in advance!

To enter Thailand you need to apply for the Thailand pass, which requires a night in a quarantine hotel until you test negative to Covid. You would also require US$20,000 worth of health insurance. Perhaps you can get the PNR numbers linked at check into avoid having enter Thailand?

Can you get anyone to join the 2 flights on airline in different (or none) alliances? Seems a bit of an uphill task, but the experienced TAs in our midst would likely know.

Otherwise, in my opinion the trip is a non-starter, unless you can manage HLO.

Thanks for both your replies, I didn't think to do that.

  1. I got a reply from the Thai consulate - if I can interline (QF/EK is possible according this) then I don't even need a Thailand Pass.

Is it possible to interline or connect two PNRs before check in?

Yes, it is theoretically possible for QFF to interline your baggage with EK as they have an interline agreement. Whether they will do it in this Covid environment is another matter (and it appears they have not been doing so).
