Please note that the latest COVID-19 control measures announced on 24 July, 2021, for domestic travel to Ko Samui and Ko Pha-ngan are not enforced for travel between Ko Samui and Ko Pha-ngan, or travellers under the Phuket Sandbox travelling by air to Ko Samui and Ko Pha-ngan, or other endorsed projects to reopen pilot destinations.
This means that foreign tourists under the Phuket Sandbox programme can still travel between Phuket and Samui, in accordance with the necessary screening measures in place for health and safety.
