PHUKET: Leading representatives from Phuket’s devastated tourism industry have called for the Phuket provincial government to end the mandatory 14-day quarantine for people arriving from specific districts in Bangkok in the hope of throwing local businesses a lifeline until international tourists return.

 

The high-powered delegation also called for the Phuket provincial government to prepare to start receiving international tourists from October, ahead of what would normally be Phuket’s tourism high season, under a plan that would require all international arrivals to be vaccinated for COVID-19 before being allowed to enter Phuket.

 

By that time, the 70% of the population on Phuket is to be vaccinated for the disease.

Seems like a Covid-19 vaccine-pass might become be a mandatory future travel document...🤔

I'm sure some enterprising individual(s) are at this very moment busy on MS word or Adobe. Probably cheaper than the jab for farang. There isn't a worldwide database for this at the moment so hopefully there will be some intergovernmental co-operation.

Quite some time ago WHO talked about a database linked to passport.
