no idea how this is calculated, used MasterCard for decades, never a mention of this...

22 million "international overnight visitors"? - So they check against passports to eliminate Thailand-issued Master Cards from the total? "Overnight" means genuine trips or just all bookings each night? How about expats in Thailand, who make 10 trips a year to neighbouring countries and back: are they also lumped into this figure of "international visitors"?

How do they know it's a foreigner using the mastercard?

Because you need to register before you get the card.

Not challenging the figures of whoever....

 

..but ask many a taxi driver (Grab or the official taxis), or a small hotel business owner,  and they will rather claim that their business is dropping...I'd rather belive them.
