Thai authorities have clarified that those traveling under the Phuket sandbox will not be required to undergo quarantine. While on other hand, Thailand has reinstated mandatory quarantine for foreign travelers in view of the increasing cases of omicrons.

Those traveling under the Phuket sandbox scheme will only have to undergo a PCR test, and will have to wait at the hotel till the results are announced. If their test comes back negative, they will be allowed to roam in Phuket.
