Officials say the popular resort island of Phuket is still on track to reopen to international tourists next month but only for vaccinated travellers.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has confirmed that vaccinated travelers from low-risk countries will be permitted to fly direct to the Thai island without having to quarantine from July 1 as part of its pilot "Phuket Sandbox" program. TAT governor YuthasakSupasorn has informed that he expects around 129,000 visitors to arrive in Phuket between July and September this year. For the initial stage, only fully vaccinated tourists are allowed in, with the exception of children under six," he said when asked about reports that young travelers who haven't received the Covid-19 vaccine could fly in with their parents.
They have also announced thatthe reopening plan is reliant on efforts to vaccinate 70% of the island's residents. A massive vaccination drive is now underway and, according to recent media reports, officials have already vaccinated 50% of the provincial population.The governor says if the pilot project goes well, it will be expanded to nine additional tourist destinations in the coming months: Krabi; Phang-nga; KohSamui; Pattaya; Bangkok; Buriram; Cha-am; and HuaHin.With several airlines in the Middle East announcing July 1 reopenings of flights to Phuket, Thai Airways has finally announced plans to fly in and out of the island from Europe.
