Tourist visas from 30 days to 90 days in pipeline

tourist visas from 30 days to 90 days

The newly elected government will consider the possibility of extending the validity of tourist visas from 30 days to 90 days and streamlining immigration procedures to improve convenience for foreign visitors, according to Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin, in response to the plea from tourism business operators to improve the tourism industry.

The individual further expressed that the suggestion put out by certain tourism industry operators, advocating for the government to waive entrance visas for tourists originating from China, India, and Russia, presents a distinct matter that necessitates cautious consideration due to its potential security consequences.

On Saturday, the prime minister convened a meeting with tourism enterprises in Phang-nga province. The purpose of the meeting was to solicit their concerns and suggestions about tourism marketing, as well as to gather insights on the prospects of wellness and health tourism along the Andaman coast.

During the conference, there was a discussion of the potential renovation of a former airport located in Phang-nga. The purpose of this renovation would be to facilitate the operation of small commercial aircraft. Additionally, the group addressed the topic of promoting tourism within local communities as a means to enhance the sales of local products and augment the incomes of community members.

According to available reports, an estimated 3,000 towns possess the capacity to establish local tourism enterprises. However, a significant portion of these communities remain unregistered, resulting in their exclusion from state assistance programs.

During the meeting, the prime minister expressed his commitment to treating all provinces, including Phang-nga, Krabi, Phuket, and Ranong, without bias, despite the absence of any Pheu Thai party members of parliament in these regions. He emphasized his intention to enhance tourism in these provinces, as he aspires to serve as a prime minister for the entire Thai population.
