The “Krabi more amazing” is the official name of the plan to open Krabi to international vaccinated tourist as part of the “7+7 Island Hopping” extension to the “Phuket Sandbox”. The plan allows eligible international travelers to reduce the mandatory stay in Phuket from 14 to 7 days, after which another 7 nights can be spent in Krabi (Ko Phi Phi, Ko Ngai, or Railay), Phang-Nga (Khao Lak or Ko Yao), or Surat Thani (Samui Plus – Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan, or Ko Tao).
Krabi (Ko Phi Phi, Ko Ngai, or Railay) can be reached by SHA Plus-certified boat and ferry services from approved piers.Once travelers have completed the 7-night extension in Krabi, and are tested negative in their third COVID-19 test (conducted on Day 12-13), they will receive a ‘Release Form’ from their hotel and will be able to continue their journey to other destinations in Thailand.If the stay in Krabi is less than 7 nights, travelers must proceed directly to Phuket International Airport on the day of departure. At the port of entry back into Phuket, they will need to show a plane ticket or other proof of their international travel from Phuket.The existing entry measures in place for the Phuket Sandbox program remain unchanged for the 7+7 extension. But, travelers planning to spend another 7 nights outside of Phuket must obtain a ‘Transfer Form’ issued by their hotel in Phuket indicating that they have stayed in Phuket for 7 nights, which they will need to show together with the negative results of their two COVID-19 tests (conducted on Day 0 and Day 6-7 in Phuket).
Before arriving, all travelers must show:
A negative PCR test result within 72 hours before departure.
Vaccination proof, at least 14 days before departure.
SHABA (SHA Plus Booking Authentication system) confirmation letter with QR Code from a SHA Plus Hotel.
COE (Certificate of Entry).
Visa (if required).
*Don’t forget to ask your hotel for SHABA certificate.
