Starting April 21st Phuket Imposes New COVID-19 Restrictions

As of Wednesday, April 21st, 2021, the Phuket Governor announced that there would be additional entry restrictions due to COVID-19.
If you fly into Phuket without that proof of vaccination, you will have to take a COVID-19 test for 300 baht at the airport, about 10 dollars. You should have proof that you are COVID-19 free.
In case you come to Phuket after April 21st, you may test positive for COVID-19 and end up in a field hospital. This should not happen if you have gotten a vaccine.
At the Thachatchai in Phuket (assuming you took the ferry as Phuket is an island) only drivers from the red zone provinces have to follow new restrictions. You will not have to do the paperwork if you come from an orange zone.
You should download Mor Chana and register at http://www.gophuget.com before visiting Phuket. This app will keep track of your movements so officials can get in touch with you if they need to.
The Thai government wants people to limit their travel, especially in red zone provinces. The following are the red zone provinces:

  1. Bangkok
  2. Chiang Mai
  3. Chon Buri
  4. Samut Prakan
  5. Prachuap Khiri Kan
  6. Samut Sakhon
  7. Pathum Thani
  8. Nakhon Pathom
  9. Phuket
  10. Nakhon Ratchasima
  11. Nonthaburi
  12. Songkhla
  13. Tak
  14. Udon Thani
  15. Suphanburi
  16. Sa Kaeo
  17. Rayong
  18. Khon Kaen

You can expect other provinces to enact similar restrictions over the next few days.
