This  idea has already been rescinded, Phuket residents probably caught wind of it.

I think it is possible that that article is just badly written, and you are misconstruing it.

It says: "Thailand will not be fully reopened to foreign tourists along the lines of the so-called “Phuket Model” any time soon because the government has to consider too many details, deputy government spokesperson Traisulee Traisoranakul said on Friday (August 28)."

The word "fully" stands out to me. Is the article saying that the Phuket model will not spread further until the lessons of that experiment are learned?

Yes, you’re correct, and the tourists need to purchase insurance through an agency 30% owned by the TAT :excl:

Be interesting to know if this is caused mostly by demand from Thais wanting to return, or a heavy chunk of foreigners desperate to return and 'do the time'.... must be quite frustrating, like a pal of mine seperated from his Mrs and Thai home for 5 months now.
