Thailand’s first group of foreign tourists arrived in Phuket on Sunday after undergoing Covid-19 tests and went into “villa quarantine” at the Sri Panwa Hotel.

Deputy Phuket governor Phichet Panapong said the 59 tourists from different European countries flew from Indonesia. This is in line with the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s resolution to allow foreign tourists to return to Thailand, provided they complete their 14-day quarantine in an allocated hotel.

He said the group will be monitored and evaluated during the 14-day period and if everything goes well, this will be used as a model to help with the recovery of Thailand’s tourism sector.
