Domestic tourists in Thailand may be able to receive a 3,000 thb travel bank credit to use at participating hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions.

The way it would work, according to The Finance Ministry, is each traveller would get the 3,000 thb to use when travelling and can split up the money between eating, lodging and activities. Each company that participates in the voucher program will have to register, however, the travellers themselves would not be required to register to use the credit.

It is hoped the new plan will help tourism-related businesses with re-opening and cater to some domestic tourism before the borders are re-opened for international tourists-a date that has yet to be announced.

The revised government stimulus package has been designed to address some of the rorts in last year’s Eat-Shop-Spend (Chim-Shop-Chai) program. This time, rather than giving credits to the user, the government will re-imburse the businesses and services directly.

They plan to roll out the new tourism stimulus package in July as that is when everything will officially reopen.
