The order was posted online by the ‘Phuket Info Center’, operated by the Phuket office of the ministry of Interior, earlier today.

The order is marked to come into effect from Nov 16, and hence comes into effect at midnight tonight.

The new order revises the previous order issued, dated October 23, 2021, and repeals two sections.

The changes are “to relax measures and accelerate the recovery of economic and social activities in parallel with public health measures, therefore, in order to be in line with the current situation and to stimulate the economy,” Governor Narong explained in the order.

The revision no longer requires any people to register their travel details on the gophuget.com website.

Previously, arrivals had to enter their travel details and be issued a QR code to present to officials at the checkpoint onto the island in order to be allowed into Phuket.

From midnight tonight, arrivals need only show officials their registration on the ‘Mor Prom’ app operated by the Ministry of Public Health.

All other provisions under the previous order remain the same, except the provision regarding students travelling into and out of Phuket regularly to attend classes, which has been repealed. **

1) Must be vaccinated against COVID-19 with:

Does it make sense that by road traveling to Phuket not need any health checks anymore, but incoming 'by air' travel arrivals need to undergo that rigide Thailand Pass procedure while they are PCR tested before their flight to Phuket, and after arrival again a PCR test? That are 2 PCR tests in less than 4-5 days. Pfff.  The differents about treating arrivals is not very logic.

At least they are keeping it simple. And at least it is not constantly changing. And at least the school closures and pupil lockups are being reported publicly. Etc etc etc .....

And soon no pcr test at the arrival and no government SHA+ hotels?
