Step-by-step explanation of the "no quarantine" plan
The Tourism Authority of Thailand has sent out a letter to people working in the tourism industry stating that Phuket will be open to vaccinated foreign tourists from July 1st. Travelers do not need to go through quarantine, but they must stay in Phuket for at least 14 days, after which they will be allowed to visit other places in Thailand.
Who can travel to Phuket from abroad?
Vaccinated foreign travelers from low and medium risk countries. & nbsp;
Unvaccinated children under 12 years of age.
Unvaccinated children aged 12-18 years (requires rapid antigen test upon arrival).
Unvaccinated adult travelers will be required to undergo mandatory quarantine at any ALQ hotels in Phuket for 14 days. & nbsp;
Phuket Sandbox requirements
Certificate of vaccine / proof of vaccination.
ThailandPlus Mobile Alert Application.
RT-PCR test before arrival and during your stay in Phuket.
& nbsp; COVID-19 insurance. The Thai government has made it mandatory for foreign nationals entering Thailand to have medical insurance coverage during their stay. Insurance takes effect immediately upon arrival in Thailand. COVID-19 insurance in Thailand for foreigners fully covers their medical expenses of up to 3.5 million baht.
You can expect premiums to start at just THB 4,000 for a 30-day policy. For a tourist visa or nonimmigrant visa application, 90 days insurance will cost between 8,000 and 14,000 baht. As with all insurance policies, the premium will be determined by your circumstances. In this case, one of the most important factors is whether the country you are flying from is considered to have a high or low risk of contracting the virus.
Certificate of Entry or COE is a letter issued by the Thai embassy or consulate to allow the foreign visa holder to enter Thailand on board a special repatriation flight, charter flight or semi-commercial flight. This letter will be presented to airline staff before departure and to immigration officer upon arrival in Thailand. The applicant must obtain an appropriate Thai visa before applying for the COE. After obtaining a visa, the applicant must prepare the following documents to apply for the COE: & nbsp;
Copy of passport.
Copy of STV, Nonimmigrant Visa or Extension of Stay with Re-Entry Permit.
Copy of COVID-19 travel insurance policy for Thailand, covering medical treatment and medical care.
Costs related to COVID-19 with a minimum coverage of US $ 100,000.
