TAT says government has relaxed tourist visa criteria for European nations

The Tourism Authority of Thailand says the government has relaxed tourist visa requirements for some countries considered, “medium-risk”, in an effort to kick-start international tourism. Thapanee Kiatphaibool says tourist visa holders can be admitted for up to 60 days, with the possibility of extending their stay to 90 days, adding that, as of November 5, 1,465 foreign nationals have been granted visas. The 3 most popular types are retirement visas, privileged entry visas, and the Special Tourist Visa.

Thapanee says that while applicants for the STV must come from low-risk countries, officials are relaxing visa criteria for nationals of Scandinavia and other European countries currently considered medium-risk.

It’s worth noting however, that applicants must fulfil some pretty hefty financial requirements, including having at least 500,000 baht in savings, health insurance coverage of at least US$100,000, and out-patient insurance of 40,000 baht. Applicants must also take a Covid-19 test 72 hours before travel and be in possession of a medical certificate. They must then carry out 14 days’ quarantine (at their own expense) on arrival.

The Thaiger won’t hold its breath for a sudden upsurge in foreign tourists anytime soon…

      Actually the Maldives are NOT “making a killing at the expense of Thailand” or anyone else, but they’re proving just how much of a desperate clutching at straws this is, to the point of being an almost pointless exercise.

      Despite all the hype here, the reality is that last year the Maldives had around 125,000 tourists a month; this year, despite the publicity and the closed borders eleswhere, they had just 1,752 arrivals from July 15 to 31 followed by 7,628 visitors in August – so little more than 5% of “normal” numbers.

      Would that really be worth the effort and the risk?

      But let’s not let reality get in the way of a good bit of Thailand bashing …..

        I agree John let that not get in the way of a good bit of Thailand bashing.
        Thailand can only dream of having 7628 visitors month.
        I bet Thailand wish they could have 5% of their normal visitors, or even 3%.
        The fact is the Maldives has had 20.000 visitors from July 15th to sometime in September.
        The Maldives tourism minister expects from September to year end, 120.000 more visitors.
        For the same period the Thai minister expects, 4 mini vans loads, and 200 workers sneaking over the borders.

          You’d lose your bet – all the evidence and all the polls (of Thais!) make it very clear that Thais generally DON’T want the borders opened at the moment; 57% of those polled don’t even want the STV scheme.

          As for your “fact”, the “FACT” is that they actually had 1,752 in July, 7,628 in August and 9,538 in September so 18,918 so far, with no more evidence that they’ll get “120,000 more visitors” in the next three months than Thailand will any STV tourists.

          Realistically, for those sort of numbers (less than 10,000 a month including tourists, business travellers, Elite visa holders and retirees) it simply isn’t worth bothering.

        Interesting that you use numbers from months ago, shortly after opening, in middle of their low season (which runs same as Thailand). Oct (still low season) they were up to 21000, about 15% of normal average (and that would be average of high and low season) and steadily increasing. And that’s 15% with large numbers of their source markets, like the Chinese unable to travel. Market by market, with some variation, they are running as high as 40%

      Not only the Maldives but Mexico, Cuba, etc. are very much thanking Thailand for killing its tourism and the 20% plus GDP linked to it (real estate, retail). Because Thailand wants the vaccine to be produce locally, it is likely that vaccination will be at the very end of 2021 while the country has almost zero herd immunity. Million of starving people will join the already long queue of free food charity line…

        But they’re very clearly NOT “very much thanking Thailand” because it’s made no difference to them at all!

        The Maldives have 5% of their normal tourist numbers; Mexico’s had less than 30% and they’re nearly all from the US; and Cuba only opened a few islands in September, where there are no resident locals and the staff are bussed in, in three week shifts then quarantined, opening up in the middle of last month with virtually no takers.

        You’re living in la-la land.

        Yet the next line is: The Maldives have 5% of their normal tourist numbers.
        Does that support him stating (it’s made no difference to them at all)???

          The Maldives’ October 2020’s tourist arrivals remain 84.8% less compared to October 2019. However, tourists visiting the island nation keeps growing at a steady pace. Likewise, the Maldives aims to reach a total of 500,000 tourist arrivals by the end of 2020.

          —- 15% and on the way up is much more than Phuket and they will get >30% at year end.

        It’s my personal belief that herd immunity is already in a large part of Thailand. Chinese have been going from and to Thailand for months after the initial outbreak. In the area where I live, in Chiang Mai province, there’s many Chinese villages. There’s a small Chinatown in our Amphur. Surely Chinese people must have travelled to and from China to visit relatives or for business. Surely Thailand must have had COVID spread already in December.

        I don’t believe the vaccine is really needed except for old and/or vulnerable people. I won’t be getting the vaccine and neither will my daughter. My girlfriend might want to take the vaccine, that’s up to her.

      Spot on! While Thailand does struggle with several serious issues, then their china virus visa requirements for foreign visitors wanting to enter Thailand not unreasonable. The fact that certain Thai provinces are really struggling at present is a result of greed and lack of diversification. Didn’t all the local hoteliers and MNC’s save part of their huge profits, which they reaped for decades by overcharging tourists, for a rainy day?

        Of course Thailand’s been affected by the global recession caused by Covid-19, and exports and production’s down, but that’s inevitable.

        Interesting to watch the interview with KP Ho to see a hotelier putting a positive spin on things and looking at the “flip side”, seeing Thais taking over where they now can, rather than all the doom and gloom from the farangs who’ve bled their fellow farangs dry and now want Thailand to bail them out.

          Complete Nonsense. As per my experience living here in LOScam for nearly 6 years now I can say that I never had any problem to make business with foreigners.

          There were much more problems dealing with moronic, unskilled Thai face saving liars who never kept any promise they made.

          Saying that I personally reduced my exposure to Thai people and business in any regard over the last few years to a possible minimum. I not regret it. I get what I want for the price I am willing to pay and MOST important I get it on time, no ‘solly no have’ and ‘maybe tomollow’

        yes, but not for regular tourists. As of 27 October 2020, Germany allows unrestricted entry for residents of the following countries:

        Australia
        New Zealand
        Singapore
        Thailand
        Uruguay

        Entry from other countries is only possible in exceptional cases and is conditional on there being an urgent Need.

        Right now you’re not allowed to travel to Denmark as German citizen, for example.

          Again incorrect, Denmark is a part of Shengen and at this moment there are No restrictions for Shengen travelers into Germany.

          I know the document you refer to. I suggest you read it till the end. It is stated that citizens of EU member states are exempted from travel restrictions.

      ‘you’re also not allowed to enter Europe without a special visa. ‘

      What are you talking about? Most developed country’s can enter EU without a ‘Special visa’. Now can Thais or many other poor or developing nations? No. But then Thailand had same rules in normal times, most on same level economically or lower require a ‘special visa’.

      The Thai govt are very clear about their strict entry rules and indeed have been praised by the WHO for their handling of the crisis.
      Entry exit conditions are less strict in Europe for a variety of justifiable reasons. It does not in any way follow that Thailand is somehow “too strict”.

      The problem is with the Thai elite seeing this as an opportunity to fleece tourists with financial demands. There is no public health justification for this and it simply further damages the chances of the Thai people.

      I would say: spread a little love and win back the hearts of foreigners, keep on with the entry requirements related to public health, reverse the financial demands. And consider where you want to be post vaccine … then think about where you MIGHT be if you persist with what is viewed by many as quite m greedy and racist.

      Hahaha, well, here’s an example – France receives the most foreign tourists of any country – 89 million in 2019. (Thailand 38 million) (United Kingdom 36 million). France ranks 5th in terms of tourist spending behind United States, United Kingdom, China, Spain and Italy. Yet, tourism in France produces 9.7% of GDP compared to 20% in Thailand (conservative estimate because prostitution, massage parlours, beer bars, western union payments etc not included). So, the problem is that Thailand relies heavily on tourism. European economies aren’t as reliant on tourism, even though some earn even more money from it than Thailand does.

    Low risk country is the right choice. I doubt there is any low risk country in Europe. It only has higher and highest.

    Anyone know where Laos stands in all of this? They are clearly low-risk, sandwiched between low numbers Thailand, Vietnam and China, Cambodia too I believe.

    I have to say, I’m over this nonsense…. I will see what happens once normality returns to Thailand. If indeed it ever returns. I do hope the government realises that Thailand isn’t the only place to go to, to have a holiday in the sun. I do miss the ordinary people there and lament their lives and livelihoods. Maybe the unemployment and destitution will drive a change. Perhaps their loyalty to Rama IX will encourage a rebirth of the nation!

    I think people are overestimating the effect international tourism on Thailand – On Thai’s peoples day to day to life

    Sure Thai’s aren’t going to be able to s

    Unlike the West, Thai families and communities are extremely helpful to each other ….give each other free food, accommodation etc

    Markets around the country -In every town are always full with thousands of kilos of different fruits etc

    I doubt thai’s are going to be starving on the street.

      Where are you staying? In posh parts of BKK? There are queues hundreds of meters long for free food (charity) in Pattaya and beggars, homeless are now by hundreds…

    And still yet, nobody here has still gone on to prove that this dreaded virus actually prove.
    Even the UK and Irish govts were asked the very same and still nothing!

    So, would any of these posters here direct me or anyone else where the proof is this convid does in fact exist? It hasn’t even been isolated yet!
    Looking very much forward to your evidence. 5!

    Thailand is paranoid regarding the pandemic. Normal travel will take years not months!

    I am applying for this TR visa, expecting to arrive within 5 weeks and stay for at least 60 days (+ quarantine). The new conditions are pretty straightforward to follow and comply with, despite the still present 14-day isolation period. I hope it will go smooth.
