The Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) released, on Friday, a step-by-step guide for entering and exiting the “Phuket Sandbox” which will begin on July 1.

 

These regulations will also apply to Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao when they are reopened.

 

Before arriving:

 

  • Must be coming from a country with a low to medium risk as per the Ministry of Public Health.
  • Fully vaccinated with AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Sinovac, and Sinopharm Covid vaccines (no less than 14 days earlier, but no more than one year) and has a Vaccine Certificate to prove it.
  • Must has a COVID Free certificate to prove that you have tested negative for Covid no more than 72 hours before arriving
  • Obtain a Certificate of Entry (COE) which could be acquired online via www.entrythailand.go.th

 

Upon arrival:

 

  • Download the Mor Chana tracing application
  • Picked up by designated vehicles and to be dropped off at an accommodation that is certified with the Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) Plus certification (Alternative Local Quarantine (ALQ) for Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao) [read more]

Time will tell, it will be very interesting to see who and how many will come, i myself will be very interested to see the type of tourists who are so desperate to run the gauntlets just to come to Phuket...

Guessing around a hundred middle aged foreigners returning to their families. A few Chinese and Russian business persons looking to carpetbag.

And maybe some "tourists" who want to see if the restrictions are really true.

In all, not a lot but purely guesswork.

And possibly 5 major drug dealers dressed  as the RTP or Army 😂

The tags are only for Doom mongers who post on Thai Visa, or arrivals who pretend they don’t have a smart phone

Again, an announcement that doesn't cover all the bases.  If Tourists intend to go to Koh Samui are they going to be picked up by a designated vehicle in Bangkok and taken to ASQ on Koh Samui?

 

It might be that something has been lost in translation, but the Government should by now have competent English Translators to do a acceptable translation.

 

Sadly this article leaves more questions than answers.....again!

Very, very frw

 

But foreigners entering Thailand for other reasons (live there, join family etc) will likely avail of it since it certainly beats 14 days confined to a single hotel room.  Their numbers aren't large, of course.

This will exclude tourists with 3G mobile phones or cause confusion on arrival by those with 3G phones - will they have to sign a register like I do here in Cambodia??

Can't see why anybody would risk a positive Wuflu test on arrival at a Government Approved Quarantine Facility and 14 days incarceration costing 500k bht. Just because you are immunised does not preclude a positive test on arrival!

I assume they will need a local SIM card in any case? Unless they have worldwide data roaming and don’t mind paying those charges.

Doesn't exclude an expensive false positive stay either !

They need to add this:

 

All prisoners must be steam cleaned  when returning to hotel so they will not drag in the oil from the beach

Interesting will this slow down the Russian arrivals - No Sputnick 5 vaccine approved, by the Thai officialdum?
