Thai Government Looking To Start An Andaman COVID-19 Sandbox Plan

On July 20, 2021, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced that Phangnga and Krabi are preparing to welcome back foreign tourists under the “Andaman Sandbox” scheme.
If all goes according to plan, the provinces that lie along the Andaman coastline will be the next to reopen to foreign tourists. Thailand debuted its sandbox model on July 1, while Samui Plus went live last Thursday.
According to TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn, the proposal for the Andaman Sandbox scheme will be submitted to the Centre for Economic Situation Administration on Wednesday for further consideration.
A TAT official in Phangnga has stated that tourists who have already visited Phuket, followed by a week in Phangnga or Krabi, would be permitted to visit Koh Yao, Koh Panyee, and the Khao Lak coastline if approved.
He said eligible tourists will be able to visit attractions along a specified route from Ban Nam Khem in Khao Lak to Koh Yao Noi-Yai and Koh Panyee in Ao Phangnga National Park.
Trackers provided by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society and the private sector will be used to monitor the tourists’ movements during their 14-day stay, similar to the one used in the Phuket Sandbox.
The Safety & Health Administration (SHA) has also certified more than 300 businesses providing hospitality services in the area, he said.
In the wake of their 14-day stay in Phuket, the first group of tourists under the Phuket Sandbox scheme made their way to Phangnga on Friday. Chuchart said more tourists are expected in late October.
According to Yuthasak, once the Andaman Sandbox has been approved, the TAT will ask to approve similar schemes in Chiang Mai, Buri Ram, Bangkok, Phetchaburi, and Prachuap Khiri Khan in time for October reopening.
