Although Phuket is still trying to maintain strict measures to control the spread of the Coronavirus and the island is still under a modified lock down. According to local Thai media you can apply to enter or leave the island with 2 methods of registration, Thai or foreigner.

  • OPTION ONE. Departures from other provinces, travelling to Phuket, or people living in Phuket but wanting to travel to another province, must first get the approval from their local provincial administrative department, and also obtain a medical certificate stating that you are fit to travel. The steps are as follows…

1. Go to the website.

2. Fill in your identification number or passport number and complete the form.

3. After you have filled in your details, a “Member Book” will appear on the website with your details on it. Print every page and keep safe as you will need this document once arriving at the check point in Phuket.

4. When you arrive at the checkpoint, simply show the QR CODE to the staff to scan. This will record the current time that you passed through the checkpoint . Once finished, you can enter or depart Phuket immediately.

Make sure that you have your QR code, ID card or passport so the staff can find your information and record the time you enter or exit the checkpoint.

The Provincial Police Commander warns that only people attending to “urgent matters” are being allowed onto the island.

“Arrivals will be subjected to strict inspection.”

“If people have not been allowed to enter the province, that means their reason to come in is not necessary. So I want them to calm down and wait for a while until the Cabinet announces that entry is permitted.”

    All malls, markets and restaurants are already open, but healthiest place on the island, beaches are still closed. When beaches will be open and people allowed to go swimming?
