Historically what has caused Thailand to loosen up on their Visa policies

Recommended Posts

Loosening up can be either making things easier on paper or in practice (how IOs are told to handle you).


I see it mentioned often during a tightening period like this past year, that "they'll change again after some pain." Historically is this actually true?


If it does yoyo back and forth, I suppose slow tourism numbers and declining revenues are the catalyst for changing attitudes? Or are the other more important factors?

We arrived back from N.Z. on the 9th Nov at 9 pm at the airport, hardly any one here no qs and heaps of imm officers just sitting around chatting. For the first time ever I saw a indian woman pulled over at customs check when she tried to walk though the green gate. I sailed passed no bother with my partner we had 3 suitcases and 3 carry ons 🙂


I have a retirement visa my partner is Thai
