phuket sandbox

Phuket Sandbox is a pilot project to open the Kingdom of Thailand to tourists from around the world over the coming months.


This pilot project allows certain low and medium risk countries  to let their tourists enter the island of Phuket under certain conditions with the focus on allowing tourists to move around Thailand freely after remaining in a SHA Plus hotel on Phuket for 14 nights. As a pilot project, tourists would be required to have been fully vaccinated  prior  to arrival whilst the Phuket hotels must reach a minimum of 70% staff vaccination ratio under the SHA Plus certification.


Tourists would not be required to undergo quarantine restrictions but remain on Phuket until after a negative Covid-19 test on day 6-7 and after day 12-13 they can enjoy Amazing Thailand countrywide.


The success of this project relies on both fully vaccinated tourists and Phuket locals and if successful then we will be able to open other provinces in the Royal Kingdom of Thailand.
