CESA Approves Opening Phuket Tourism Sandbox from July 1

The Centre for Economic Situation Administration (CESA) has approved opening the Phuket “tourism sandbox” to vaccinated tourists from July 1 as proposed by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said vaccinated tourists can fly into Phuket and move around freely without having to quarantine under the “Phuket Tourism Sandbox” program, which will be applied to other tourism provinces.
He added that the CESA approved a three-stage roadmap to reopen six major tourism provinces — Phuket, Krabi, Phangnga, Surat Thani (Koh Samui), Chon Buri (Pattaya) and Chiang Mai — to vaccinated foreign visitors.
