Updated 8Nov 2021...

The Phuket sandbox project has been a success and is continuing to move forwards with a loosening of requirements for entry into all of Thailand.
The government's published plan will lead to the country being completely open to vaccinated travellers by the 1st January.
All of the above is great news and means that the Similan and Surin season is full sail ahead with some great offers!

The beginning of the Similan Islands season is here and after almost two seasons with barely any divers the reefs are better than ever.
Entry directly into Phuket and now Bangkok internationally for fully vaccinated travellers is now running smoothly and the government is still working hard to reach its goal of opening all of the country for the end of the year.

Who can travel to Phuket from abroad?

Vaccinated Thai and foreign travelers from listed countries.
Unvaccinated children under 18 years old traveling with vaccinated parents
Note: Unvaccinated adult travelers will be required to undergo mandatory quarantine at any AQ Hotels in Phuket for 14 days
Note: Travelers from un-listed countries (vaccinated or not) are not eligible for Phuket Sandbox and must undergo a mandatory quarantine
