The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is to propose a new travel bubble model, for tourists from certain countries or cities, to enter the country without the requirement for quarantine, called “Sandbox”. If approved, it will be trialed on the resort island of Phuket.

TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said today that, under the Sandbox model, which will be proposed to the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) at its meeting on Friday, the Thai government or a Thai city will negotiate with their foreign counterparts to arrange a travel bubble, to allow the two sets of citizens, who have been vaccinated, to visit specific areas without having to be quarantined.
