Thailand’s tourism minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn has said that targets will be met and 40 million tourists will visit the country next year.  

Thailand tourism: 40 million will visit

He said he is absolutely sure of that. His statements came after the influential Tourism Council of Thailand downgraded their forecast to under 40 million in recent reports. Phiphat also told Nation TV that the free Visa on Arrival (VoA) scheme that was extended to April 2020 may be made permanent. This applies to about 20 nations but principally tourists visiting from China that makie up a large proportion of Thailand’s tourist trade.
