SHA goes to Phuket
query_builder 11 August 2021

The Amazing Thailand SHA certification is a key component of the efforts to control COVID-19. It was introduced in May 2020, and has been certified by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) in alignment with the WTTC Safe Travels global health and hygiene standardised protocols.


To date, there are 1,389 (and counting) SHA-certified venues and businesses across Phuket covering accommodation, restaurants and fine dining venues, travel agencies, and other sectors. Over 460 of these have SHA+ certification, the number which is continuously growing, as all SHA establishments are encouraged to speed up their vaccination and be certified for the SHA+ status.


Hotels participating in the Phuket Sandbox programme are scattered across all of the major beaches; namely, Patong, Kata, Karon, Kamala, Bang Tao, Rawai, Mai Khao, Naiyang, and the Phuket Old Town.
