Omicron update: Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced a temporary suspension of the Sandbox applications and Thailand’s pass for all new ‘test and go’ from December 22, 2021. This move comes in wake of the rising number of Omicron cases in the country.

As per the reports, Sandbox plan is a new model that allows fully vaccinated travellers to enter Thailand without quarantine. Now, as per the latest restrictions, travellers will be required to travel to Thailand via Phuket. Also, since Phuket has not yet imposed restrictions, Indian travellers will be allowed to enter Thailand under the Phuket Sandbox scheme.

Reportedly, as per the said scheme, travellers will only be required to undergo a PCR test and wait in the hotel until the test result is received. If their test result comes negative, they will be allowed to move around in Phuket. Further, travellers will undergo the second RT-PCR test on the fifth or the sixth day, after which they will be allowed to travel to other parts of Thailand on completing seven days of stay in Phuket, without undergoing quarantine, or they can opt to return to their home country within seven days.
