Tourism Ministry proposes easier multiple entry visas…but only for Chinese tourists and Nationals

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 the 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.
