Phuket Sandbox

Banyan Tree Phuket

Banyan Tree Phuket Welcomes You - Phuket Sandbox remains open!

Following the recent important updates by the Tourism of Thailand Authority (TAT) today on the entry requirements to Thailand - we would like to reassure all our guests that travel to Phuket remains unaffected. Phuket still has it all – breathtaking views, tree-fringed beaches, crystal clear waters of the Andaman sea, romance, adventure – and a plethora of delicious cuisines to eat!

Effective December 22 2021, travelers already registered and approved to enter Thailand under the Thailand Pass Test & Go and Sandbox programme will still be able to enter.

  • Those who have already received their Thailand Pass QR Code can continue to use it on the condition that a second PCR Test will be taken on their seventh day in Thailand, administered free of charge by the government.

  • Those who have already registered but have not received their QR Code must wait for their Thailand Pass to be considered / approved. Once approved, they can enter Thailand under the scheme they have registered.


Travelers who are interested to enter Thailand can register under Phuket Sandbox.

Phuket Sandbox allows fully vaccinated travelers to spend seven nights in Phuket province without having to undergo quarantine on arrival. After the first seven nights in Phuket province, visitors can then travel to other areas of Thailand. There is no minimum length of stay under this program.
