Thailand Alternative Local Quarantine (AQ / ALQ) Hotels

Alternative Quarantine (AQ), previously called Alternative Local Quarantine (ALQ or ALSQ), is the list of quarantine hotels, located outside Bangkok. Hotels from other provinces that previously were included into the list of Alternative State Quarantine hotels now are classified in the list of Alternative Local Quarantine hotels.

Alternative Local Quarantine (ALQ) is the process of quarantine at government-approved hotels in various provinces of Thailand at the traveler’s own expense.


Important Update! For both foreigners and Thai travelers arriving to Thailand the mandatory quarantine period is going to be reduced to 7 days & 10 days starting from 1 October 2021. For more details check Thailand Reduced Quarantine to 7-10 days from October 2021.


Hotels in distant from Bangkok provinces together with hospitals are offering Alternative Local State Quarantine packages for Thai and non-Thai nationality travelers returning from abroad. The requirements for this type of quarantine hotels in Thailand seem to be the same as for ASQ.

Before booking one of these ALQ hotels, make sure if your chosen ALQ (not ASQ) hotel will be accepted as availability to use them depends on the point of entry to Thailand, e.g. if you are flying to Bangkok, you can use ALQ in Chonburi province but not ALQ in Phuket.

Booking Quarantine Package Hotels

To make reservation of ALQ package, you can contact hotels directly. Part of quarantine hotels can now be booked online via Agoda but you  must use special URL / links that separate quarantine packages from ordinary room offers that cannot be used when applying for COE.

Quarantine hotels on Agoda can be accessed via these links:

Important note! In case of a positive COVID-19 test result you will be transferred to the hospital and will be responsible for all hospitalization costs. While most of COVID-19 insurance policies will cover your treatment if you will get sick with symptoms, your stay at the hospital in Thailand might be not covered if your case will be asymptomatic. Make sure to get an insurance policy that would cover asymptomatic cases. AXA's Sawasdee Thailand is one of the best options that cover medical expenses regardless of the showing of symptoms.

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).
