Phuket exempts fully vaccinated visitors from COVID-19 testing



Under Governor Narong’s new order, visitors to Phuket must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, recover from the disease less than 90 days ago, or have negative RT-PCR or antigen test results confirmed by a hospital or laboratory.

The governor of Phuket has signed his order to ease the requirements on visitors who can show their full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result to enter the island province. The new measure will come into effect on October 16.

Under the new order from Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew, visitors to Phuket must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, recover from the disease less than 90 days ago, or have negative RT-PCR or test results antigen confirmed by a hospital or laboratory.

Visitors can take their Food and Drug Administration-certified antigen test kits for testing at a local hospital or lab and then show their test result which will be considered valid for 7 days.

The rule spares children aged 6 and under who travel with their guardian and people who arrive by ambulance. (TNA)
