Thais making life easier for Chinese tourists: Multiple Visas and online help starting imminently

Tourism Minister Pipat Ratchakitprakarn has revealed to the Thai media that his ministry has proposed visa stimulus measures for consideration by the economic affairs committee. 


If granted after a meeting next Tuesday this will mean Chinese tourists will be able to get multiple entry visas on arrival in Thailand. 


Initially this will run from New Year until January 25th - the date of Chinese New Year that comes earlier than usual in 2020. 


In addition Chinese people will be able to put their details into an electronic visa on arrival database before they commence their journeys to Thailand. 


This will ease pressure at visa counters at Thai airports as the data will already be in the system. 


Asked what measures are being considered to help Thai domestic tourism the minister said that they had received enough already. 


They had already got 1,000 baht on the Chim-Shop-Chai (Taste, Shop, Use) promotion and were getting 100 baht from the second round of "golden" stimulus measures that they could apply for today and tomorrow. 


Pipat's focus was clear - appeal to the Chinese to revive the sluggish tourism sector, notes Thaivisa.

There are numerous negative issues affecting the tourism industry in Thailand, very few of which are ever addressed. Rather than focus on things which will bring tourists back in numbers across the bo

My guess is the Thai government are kowtowing to Beijing and their ongoing propaganda against Taiwan.

Just so I'm clear, this weeks knee-jerk plan has reverted back to quantity of tourist rather than quality of tourist ?
