Last month we announced that, through high-season, the government decided to waive tourist visa fees and halve visa on arrival fees for visitors from 19 countries to encourage tourism.
Now, the government has extended this program to everyone, from everywhere.
From yesterday through the end of February, everyone that goes to get a single-entry tourist visa from their local Thai embassy will not have to pay anything and those opting for a visa on arrival will only need to fork over THB1,000 instead of the usual THB2,000.
Tell your friends and family to book their tickets now.
Check out the announcement here.
Paywall: You’re outta here, Coconuts stories are free for all
We have removed our paywall on all Coconuts stories. This does not mean the end of COCO+ Membership at all, but the value proposition is changing.
Rather than being a transactional subscription – whereby you pay for access to content – it is now a true membership program – whereby Coconuts stories are free for everyone but super-fans can monetarily support our independent journalism, and get added member benefits.
If you'd like to support Coconuts, you can become a COCO+ Member for as little as US$5 per year. Thank you!
