Chiang Rai Alternative Local State Quarantine (ALQ) is the list of government-approved quarantine hotels that can be used for the process of mandatory quarantine in Chiang Rai, the northernmost province of Thailand. Chiang Rai ALQ packages are offered for travelers arriving to Thailand via Chiang Rai.
Important Update! Starting from 1 November 2021, AQ hotels will be providing 1-night packages for vaccinated travelers arriving to Thailand from specific countries without having to undergo quarantine.
New 1-night packages: 1-night Entry Packages
New 7-day packages: 7-day Sandbox Packages
Unvaccinated travelers will need to undergo a 10-day quarantine at AQ hotels like previously.
Updated 10-day packages: 10-day Quarantine Packages

TIP! Some ALQ hotels do not accept credit card payments, others charge extra or use unsafe payment authorization methods so paying a deposit or full prepayment to hotel’s bank account might be a better option even if you don’t have a Thai bank account. For making payments to Thailand we recommend ‘Wise, formerly TransferWise’ as it uses the mid-market exchange rate and charges just a fraction of that banks charge for international transfers. We use Wise for making our monthly payments from Europe to Thailand and it saves us a lot on transfers (e.g. for a transfer of 1000 EUR from Euro to Thai Baht we pay just 6.76 EUR commission, several times less than our European bank charges).
