Phuket in Thailand is set to reopen to international visitors who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and who have tested negative upon arriving in the province, from July 1, 2021.

On March 26, 2021, the Center for Economic Situation Administration (CESA) chaired by Thailand’s Prime Minister General Prayuth Chan-o-cha approved the plan submitted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to open Phuket Province to international visitors under the aforementioned conditions.

As per the approved plan, there is no quarantine for international visitors who must remain in Phuket for at least seven nights before travelling elsewhere. “It 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,” said Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Yuthasak Supasorn in an official statement.

Thailand will open in a phased manner for different countries. However, visitors from India are not allowed to visit Thailand yet, owing to the current pandemic situation in the country.
