The Phuket Sandbox model was proposed by Thailand authorities in order to reopen the country for international tourists without the need of quarantine upon arrival. This project will only be applied for vaccinated tourists and will be applied starting from the 1st of July. Tourists arriving to Phuket must stay at least 14 nights before moving to any other province in Thailand.
At the moment, hotels must be registered and approved in the SHABA System, so they can be able to submit all the bookings that they have received into this System.
Once the bookings submission is done successfully, you will receive on your email the confirmation documents needed for the COE application.
The SHABA System is ready for hotels’ submissions starting from the 24th of June 2021. From that date, hotels have started to do submission process of the bookings received, and issue the confirmation documents for international travelers.
Steps to apply for Phuket COR Aplication:
Now you can submit for the approval of the COE and prepare all the other necessary documents needed, such as the following:
- Insurance covering at least 100,000 USD against COVID 19 for treatment expenses.
- Vaccination proof (vaccine has to be approved by the WHO).
- Book your SHA Plus hotel.
