Not sure what the logic of the measure was anyway (apart from sucking up to China perhaps?). Designed to stop Taiwanese tourists coming to Thailand? Perhaps an experiment to see the effects before applying it to ALL tourists?

 

Completely irrational?

What logic? of course Thai Logic - that which completely contradicts normal logic to achieve a result that is unsatisfactory in general opinion, but makes sense to a simple minded government official.

Poor countries really shouldn't ask visitors from rich countries to provide financials when applying for a basic tourist visa such as the Thai SETV.

 

And yes, before the usual suspects whine about that classification, Thailand IS a poor country compared with Taiwan in terms of per capita GDP, average income, etc.

 

But the real question here is why Taiwanese visitors aren't eligible for visa exempt entry to Thailand.

Ah, Christmas bookings not looking strong then ?

Looking to book at a higher end resort in Phuket for the nose bleed period of Dec 20th -28th, have watched the price drop in the last week by 30% vs the original asking price 3 weeks ago. Waiting just a bit longer...

On Wednesday (Dec. 4), media reports emerged that the TTEO was canceling the new policy, but later it denied any cancelation was likely.

Foot in mouth syndrome again!

Thailand previously said the new regulation concerning financial statements would eventually also apply to visitors from China, France, and the United Kingdom.
