11 Phuket Alternative Quarantine (AQ) Hotels

Phuket Alternative Quarantine (AQ or ALQ) is the list of government-approved quarantine hotels that can be used for the process of quarantine in Phuket (ASQ equivalent). Phuket AQ packages are offered for travelers arriving to Thailand via Phuket.


Important Update! Thailand Pass registration is closed for all new Test and Go and Sandbox applications (except Phuket Sandbox), starting from 22 December 2021 until further notice. Travelers who have not registered can only enter Thailand under the Phuket Sandbox and AQ quarantine schemes.

Fully vaccinated travelers need to undergo a 7-day quarantine at AQ hotels.

7-day packages: 7-day Quarantine Packages

Unvaccinated travelers need to undergo a 10-day quarantine at AQ hotels.

10-day packages: 10-day Quarantine Packages

Vaccinated travelers to Phuket can still use Phuket Sandbox program.

Phuket Sandbox hotels: Phuket SHA Extra Plus Hotels


Please be noted that if you will be taking a flight to Bangkok, you need to quarantine not in Phuket but at Alternative Quarantine hotel in Bangkok and only then will be allowed to travel further unless the private jet will be used.

If you are planning to use the Phuket Sandbox plan, you will need to look for eligible hotels that are certified as Phuket SHA Plus hotels.


Important note! In case of a positive COVID-19 test result you will be transferred to the hospital and will be responsible for all hospitalization costs. While most of COVID-19 insurance policies will cover your treatment if you will get sick with symptoms, your stay at the hospital in Thailand might be not covered if your case will be asymptomatic. Make sure to get an insurance policy that would cover asymptomatic cases. AXA's Sawasdee Thailand is one of the best options that cover medical expenses regardless of the showing of symptoms.


Recommended Quarantine Hotels

 


TIP! Some AQ hotels do not accept credit card payments, others charge extra or use unsafe payment authorization methods so paying a deposit or full prepayment to hotel’s bank account might be a better option even if you don’t have a Thai bank account. For making payments to Thailand we recommend ‘Wise, formerly TransferWise’ as it uses the mid-market exchange rate and charges just a fraction of that banks charge for international transfers. We use Wise for making our monthly payments from Europe to Thailand and it saves us a lot on transfers (e.g. for a transfer of 1000 EUR from Euro to Thai Baht we pay just 6.76 EUR commission, several times less than our European bank charges).


List of Phuket Quarantine Hotels

Currently, there are 11 hotels on the list of Phuket Alternative Quarantine Hotels. However, even if they are all approved to provide Alternative Quarantine service in Phuket, only some of these hotels are currently accepting guests for quarantine due to a very limited demand.
