The New TEST & GO Rules in Phuket – Making Your Vacation Delightful
If there is one place that Thailand is proud to present to the rest of the world, that place is Phuket. This renowned travel destination is located in the southern part of the kingdom, which lies on the western side of the Andaman Sea. Of course, Phuket is famously known for its beaches and the fantastic adventures you can experience.
However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been many rules and regulations implemented to make getaways in Phuket as safe as possible. Such as the Phuket sandbox hotels, Alternative Quarantine (AQ), and the latest TEST & GO program.
One of Hyatt Phuket Resort’s highest priorities is welcoming you with safety and well-being in mind, so we are here to provide the latest update on the TEST & GO program to keep you informed and make your stay more pleasant than ever.
The New TEST & GO Update
For anyone looking to experience the perfect vacation or have a getaway in family resort Phuket here is good news for you:
Starting from April 1st, 2022, travelers under the following entry schemes: TEST & GO, Sandbox program, and Alternative Quarantine will be allowed to enter Thailand without providing a negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of travel. Nevertheless, you ought to beware that certain airlines still require an RT-PCR test, such as travelers from Singapore, Japan, Qatar, or the UAE. So, be sure to review your airline regulations and meet their requirements before departure.
Even though the RT-PCR test is not necessary before arrival, those who enter the kingdom through the TEST & GO program will be subjected to an RT-PCR test on arrival (Day 1) and need to perform an antigen self-test on Day 5 after arrival.
As for anyone who booked Phuket sandbox hotels, the quarantine stay will be reduced to 5 nights instead of 7 nights. However, if you are already vaccinated, we recommend applying for Thailand Pass through the TEST & GO instead of the Sandbox program, so you would not have to spend your time in quarantine.
