Bangkok: TAT assures tourism industry on Phuket reopening 1 July 2021

 

The approved plan, to come into effect on 1 July, 2021, stipulates that there would be no quarantine for international visitors who must remain in Phuket for at least seven (7) nights before travelling elsewhere.

Bangkok – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) recently issued an assurance to tourism industry professionals that the ‘Phuket Sandbox’ project will start on 1 July, 2021, as planned. TAT Governor, Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, signed the letter on 27 May, 2021, reiterating the approval from the Centre for Economic Situation Administration (CESA) chaired by Prime Minister General Prayuth Chan-o-cha. The CESA approved the plan submitted by TAT to open Phuket to international visitors who have been fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines and who have tested negative upon arriving in the province.
“The plan is aimed at accelerating the revival of the country’s tourism industry and paving the way for the reopening of other tourist destinations within Thailand,” Mr. Yuthasak said. The letter is to reiterate the reaffirmation from TAT that the plan is on schedule, and that Phuket will open to international visitors under the proposed conditions. In addition, TAT is committed to working with tourism industry partners to ensure the smooth and successful opening of Phuket.
This includes collaborating on publicising that Phuket is ready to receive international visitors, undertaking marketing and joint promotion activities to generate tourist traffic to Phuket in the third quarter (July – September) of this year and beyond.
