Phuket hospitals start issuing 10-day isolation certificates for tourists

PHUKET: Patong Hospital, Chalong Hospital and Thalang Hospital are now issuing certificates for tourists, Thais and foreigners, who need official confirmation that they have completed their 10-day isolation at a hotel after testing positive for COVID-19 on landing in Phuket.

The certificates will be issued only to tourists who completed their 10-day isolation at a hotel, not any other venue, Dr Sunanta Kajownrungreang, Deputy Director of Patong Hospital, told The Phuket News late this afternoon (Jan 14).

“Certificates will not be issued for home isolation,” she added.

Dr Sunanta explained that a notice announcing the service posted by Patong Hospital yesterday, saying that tourists could apply by themselves (see here), had now been changed. 

Tourists cannot apply by themselves. The hotels where the tourists completed their 10-day isolation must apply on the tourist’s behalf, Dr Sunanta confirmed.

A new notice, in Thai only, announcing the service was posted today.

The certificates previously cost B700 each. They now cost B1,000 each, Dr Sunanta also confirmed.

In order to apply for a certificate, the relevant hotel must provide the following documents by email:

QSI International School Phuket
  • A copy of the tourist’s passport (presumably of the face page and the inbound immigration stamp to enter Thailand)
  • The laboratory test results proving the tourist tested positive;
  • A certificate from the hotel confirming that the 10-day quarantine was completed
  • A bank transfer slip confirming the tourist has paid B1,000 for the certificate.

The details for applying for a certificate from any of the three hospitals were provided as follows:

Phuket New maybe you could expand on this.  most of your reader live in Phuket and have a home.  How would the new rules apply to them. I have a large house and could easily isolate myself from my family.

More Phuket hospitals will follow with this 'money making' certificate business. It actually should be done centralized by Phuket Government ( PPHO).

Kurt | 15 January 2022 - 10:37:10

By now there is a whole Thai money making Covid industry warming up on track. Bit by bit refining itselves in increasing earnings. No certificates for home isolation. Of course not. There are no checks on 'green' patients.  Oh,  And 'home isolation' is only possible when you live alone. Not in a family or in thai accommodation sharing context.

......another money-making wheeze.
