Free visa on arrival for twenty countries likely extended until July

The free visa on arrival system that benefits twenty countries will likely be extended from the end of April for three more months. 

Immigration chief Lt-Gen Surachate Hakparn told government ministers that the scheme – already extended once – has been so successful in promoting tourism that it should continue for the time being. 

It waives charges of 2,000 baht for Chinese nationals among others. 

Surachate was in talks with DPM Somkid Jatusripitak with the proposals expected to be ratified by PM Prayut Chan-ocha. 

Bangkok Biz News reported that tourists are continuing to flood into Thailand with the new scheme helping.
