Phuket tourism industry does not lose hope of meeting guests from July 1. Certification of tourist sites and vaccination of industry workers are in full swing, as evidenced by data The Amazing Thailand Safety & Health Administration (SHA).
So far, 419 hotels, 136 restaurants and 148 travel companies have received SHA + safety marks, confirming compliance with both Thai and international safety and hygiene standards, in which 70% of employees are vaccinated.
True, as reported by Profi.Travel Viktor Kryventsov, general manager of the travel company ILVES Tour, the decision to open Phuket from July 1 has not yet been made. The incidence curve in Thailand is rising.
The Covid-19 Management Center will assess the island’s readiness to receive tourists on Friday, June 4. The official announcement will most likely be made in the middle of the month. In the meantime, officials are meeting with representatives of hotels, transportation, restaurants and other tourism businesses to get their views on the resumption of work from July 1.
Earlier it was reported that due to the emergence of new dangerous variants of Covid-19, Thailand is changing its opening tactics: the countries supplying tourists will be divided according to the degree of risk. As a result, travelers from states where the Indian strain is registered will not be able to leave Phuket for 14 days, and not seven, as previously assumed.
Only important. For the pros only.
