Thailand’s famous resort island Phuket reopens to international tourism

After several months of closure, Phuket has finally reopened to international tourism on 1 July 2021.

Tourists are no longer required to undergo quarantine if they have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus in their home country for at least 14 days and test negative upon arrival. They can basically explore the island like a regular tourist provided that they follow the health and safety protocols set by the local authorities.

If a traveler wishes to visit other places in Thailand, he/she needs to stay in Phuket for 14 days. After that, he/she can explore the rest of Thailand.

Phuket is the first province in Thailand to reopen to international tourists without undergoing quarantine. This scheme is part of an experimental tourism model dubbed as “Phuket Sandbox”, formulated to help the economy recover from the pandemic.
