Fear and confusion in Thailand’s tourism industry as near-bankrupt hotels decline foreign tourists

by Carla Boonkong & Pranee O' Connor

Several initiatives including the ‘Phuket Model’ and only last week, a 9-month long-stay visa for foreign tourists, have been announced but nothing is yet finalised. All are subject to not only stringent requirements but also limited flight capacity with a reliance on chartered flights. Thailand’s tourism industry will not rebound, even in a limited way, to anything like its former level of earnings without free market access and a sizable air passenger flight network. Studies in the UK are showing that the countries that are reopening successfully to tourism are relying on airport testing for the virus both before and after flights as the most reliable screening method.
