PHUKET: Patong Hospital, Chalong Hospital and Thalang Hospital are now issuing certificates for tourists, Thais and foreigners, who need official confirmation that they have completed their 10-day isolation at a hotel after testing positive for COVID-19 on landing in Phuket.

The certificates will be issued only to tourists who completed their 10-day isolation at a hotel, not any other venue, Dr Sunanta Kajownrungreang, Deputy Director of Patong Hospital, told The Phuket News late this afternoon (Jan 14).
“Certificates will not be issued for home isolation,” she added.
Dr Sunanta explained that a notice announcing the service posted by Patong Hospital yesterday, saying that tourists could apply by themselves (see here), had now been changed.
Tourists cannot apply by themselves. The hotels where the tourists completed their 10-day isolation must apply on the tourist’s behalf, Dr Sunanta confirmed.
A new notice, in Thai only, announcing the service was posted today.
The certificates previously cost B700 each. They now cost B1,000 each, Dr Sunanta also confirmed.
In order to apply for a certificate, the relevant hotel must provide the following documents by email:
- A copy of the tourist’s passport (presumably of the face page and the inbound immigration stamp to enter Thailand)
- The laboratory test results proving the tourist tested positive;
- A certificate from the hotel confirming that the 10-day quarantine was completed
- A bank transfer slip confirming the tourist has paid B1,000 for the certificate.
