There Is Now A COVID-19 Samui Plus Plan That Starts Mid-July

The “Samui Plus” travel scheme will reopen on July 15th, 2021. Islands in the Gulf of Thailand off the coast of Surat Thani, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao are expected to reopen to travellers who are vaccinated against Covid-19.

Initially called the “Samui Sealed Route,” the proposed travel scheme would allow those who were vaccinated to enter Koh Samui without having to undergo a 14-day quarantine. After 3 days in a hotel or resort on the island, travellers can go to specified locations, most likely with a tour guide. After a week, travellers will be able to travel to Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. After 14 days, travelers can travel throughout Thailand.

Days 1 to 3: Guests must stay at their hotels, but they can leave their rooms and use the facilities and services at the hotel.

Days 4 to 7: Travelers can visit specific destinations on Koh Samui.

Days 8 to 14: Travelers can visit Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.

To travel to the islands under the proposed plan, one must be fully immunized against Covid-19 using a brand approved by the World Health Organization or registered for use in Thailand.

Travelers from countries that are classified by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health as low to medium risk of contracting Covid-19 will be eligible for the program. Upon entering Thailand, travelers must have stayed in that country for at least 21 days. The ministry regularly updates the list of countries based on the risk of Covid-19.

Before arriving on the islands, travelers will need to…

Be sure to have a certificate verifying the last vaccination occurred at least 14 days before traveling.
Get a medicate certificate with a negative Covid-19 RT-PCR test result no more than 72 hours before departure.
