Thailand is all set to welcome Indian tourists with its new tourism policy which will waive visa restrictions on entering the country and allow for a smoother travel experience.
In a recent update by the Thailand government’s spokesperson, Chai Wacharonke, it was announced that tourists traveling from India and Taiwan will be allowed to travel to Thailand under a visa-free policy. This move comes in after the Thai government removed visa restrictions for China in September this year.
Accounting for almost 20 percent of the total GDP, the tourism sector of Thailand had suffered a setback due to the COVID pandemic. In a move to revive its economy through its tourism sector, the government has decided to waive visa requirements for Indian and Taiwanese tourists from November 10, 2023 to May 10, 2024. The tourists coming from these countries will be allowed to stay in Thailand for a period of 30 days without a visa. This policy is especially beneficial for Thailand for whom India has been a prime source of tourism this year, coming in at fourth position after Malaysia, China, and South Korea.
A big step for tourism, the Thai government aims to draw 28 million tourists and generate revenue of 1.4 trillion baht ($39.2 billion) in 2023. With such a policy, there has never been a better time than now to pack your bags and book a holiday package to the beautiful country of Thailand.
