Thailand mulls imposing tourist fee of Rs 734 from June

 Monday, January 16, 2023 


Thailand has planned to introduce a tourist fee for international tourists visiting the country with the intention of using the collected money to support visitors involved in accidents and develop tourist destinations.

Reportedly, Thailand plans to start collecting a 300 baht (US$9) fee beginning in June. However, “fees won’t be collected from foreigners with work permits and border passes,” said Tourism Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn. The proposal was first considered last year and it is important to note that it is yet to receive cabinet approval.

Thailand expects 25 million tourist arrivals this year. Tourism is one of the most crucial sectors of Thailand’s economy and constituted about 12 percent of gross domestic product before the pandemic.

Tourism spending is forecast to reach at least 2.38 trillion baht this year, said Phiphat adding that Thailand expects 25 million tourist arrivals this year.
