Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has approved a new round of relaxed entry measures for international arrivals to Thailand, reopening 3 more Sandbox destinations – Krabi, Phang Nga, and Surat Thani (only Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao) from 11 January, 2022 – in addition to Phuket. Tourists can choose to undergo their mandatory 7-day stay in all the above destinations.
However, all travellers must make sure that they arrange everything in order before applying for the Sandbox Thailand Pass. This can include, but not limited to, a vaccination certificate, a pre-arrival negative RT-PCR test result, prepaid 7-night’s accommodation in an approved hotel, prepaid RT-PCR tests for when in Thailand, and an insurance policy with coverage no less than $50,000.
Travellers must stay at least the first 7 nights within a Sandbox destination if planning to continue the journey to other destinations in Thailand. If staying less than 7 nights, the traveller must leave Thailand to another country immediately.
