After having decapitated the condemned Mr. Tourism, we cast him in a concrete block to make sure he's dead.

Brilliant idea 💡

Calm down...It's a 300 baht rapid antigen test.

Phuket has imposed strict new controls on all people entering the resort island, effective from tomorrow (Wednesday) until the end of April.

 

The new measure, which was approved by the provincial communicable disease committee, is designed to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the province and will be applied to local and foreign travellers who want to enter Phuket, with the exception of those delivering goods who do not stay overnight on the island and who must produce certification from their employers at the Tha Chatchai road checkpoint.

 

The measure stipulates that every arrival must have received two doses of COVID-19 vaccine, with an accompanying certificate confirming such, or must produce a COVID-19-free certificate,issued within 72 hours of arrival on Phuket.

Well at least no quarantine (at the moment)...

 

Next week I'll take my parents to BKK to send them off to Europe, so I'll do same day HKT-BKK-HKT return myself... does anybody knows if local arrivals at BKK also require rapid Covid test?

My wife, her grandchild and myself entered Phuket today at about 16.30 o'clock by car after driving from Sisaket.  At the check point at Chat Chai we had our temperatures taken with a handheld device by a cop and he asked if we had the Thai chana app. That was all and we were vinked along.

 

We will enjoy the next weeks here in Phuket.
