The big question which people are asking right now is - Will Phuket’s sandbox start on July 1st? In this video I’m going to share some of the latest information with you and answer some of your common questions in relation to this.
I want to make you aware that all information is correct as of today but this situation is fluid and may change over the next few weeks.
There’s a lot of misinformation online regarding this subject. My advice for anyone planning to travel to Phuket anytime soon is to contact your local Thai Embassy to check whether your country is classified as a low to medium risk country. This will allow you to get current information from the most reliable source. I know it’s very tempting to book flights now but I would advise against that until maybe next week when more information should be released with regards to which vaccines have been approved, how to show that you’re vaccinated and which countries you can fly from. If you do decide to book flights , make sure the flights you choose are fully refundable. As we all know things can change in a very short space of time. The plan must be published in the Royal Gazette before it’s official and that hasn’t happened yet. A lot is riding on this as if it’s successful other parts of the country will follow in Phuket’s footsteps.
What is the Phuket Sandbox plan? From July 1st approved passengers can fly directly to Phuket and would no longer need to quarantine for 15 nights in an Alternative State Quarantine Hotel.
You must be flying from a low to medium risk country and must be fully vaccinated with documentation. You also must have a PCR Test with a negative result which was taken within 72 hours of travel. Children under the age of 17 don’t need to be vaccinated but must take a rapid antigen test on arrival and for children under 5 - no test is required. You must have received your vaccine at least 14 days prior to your flight and not over 1 year ago.
In addition to this you must install the Thailand Plus application on your smartphone so that the government can track your movements in case they need to contact you during your stay. You must show an itinerary for your visit.
On day 5 after your arrival you must take another PCR Test which you must pay for. At this point you are able to travel to neighbouring places such as Phangna Bay, Phi Phi Island and other islands that surround Phuket.
After 7 days you are then free to travel to any part of Thailand. If you trip is less than 7 days you must depart from Phuket Airport but if it’s longer than this you then have the option to fly out from Bangkok as well.
All hotels, tours and transport must be certified by the Tourism Authority of Thailand ( TAT) and the Safety and Health Administration Guidelines ( SHA). I have attached a booklet from the SHA in the description. This certification is confirmation that at least 70% of the employees have been fully vaccinated.
I want to highlight a few common questions that many of you have and will give you the answer.

vaccinated arrivals stay with friends or family for the first 7 nights?
No, this is not possible . You must stay only in an SHA approved hotel.

other people be able to visit me at my hotel during the 1st 7 nights?
Yes , if they are fully vaccinated or they have had the first shot of Astrazeneca.

the COVID test on day 5 be carried out at my hotel or at a hospital?
At a hospital or a medical facility. Exactly where is to be confirmed.

4. Can I leave my hotel to go out to the beach, restaurant and shops?
Yes , you are free to leave your hotel.

5. Do travellers still need to apply for the Certificate of Entry?
Yes, you must do this prior to travelling. I’ve left the link to the website in the description.
More information will be released this week or early next week. Any new which I find out I will share with you.
