Starting today, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) is implementing new criteria for checking boarding passes and identification at all airports in Thailand.

Under the updated rules, foreigners traveling on domestic flights must present their boarding pass along with one of the following documents:

- Original passport;

- Original UN Laissez-Passer;

- Original Travel Document for refugees and People Seeking Asylum.

In case of loss of any of the above-mentioned documents, passengers must provide for domestic flights:

- Original Emergency Passport or Emergency Travel Certificate;

- Non-Thai ID Card issued by the Department of Provincial Administration, Thailand;

- Driver's license issued by the Department of Land Transport, Thailand.

Additionally, passengers are required to ensure that the information on their boarding pass matches the details on their identification documents.

If there is a discrepancy in the data or the absence of a boarding pass and/or identification document, passengers will be denied boarding.

These new rules are aimed at enhancing security and preventing the theft of passengers' personal data.
