For the first time, the Thailand Film Office, under the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, is offering financial incentives of up to a maximum of US$2.17m per project to foreign film-makers to make movies, TV series and other mass market films in Thailand.

According to an announcement by the Film Office, as of January 2017, foreign film productions which have already obtained filming permits can apply for the financial rebates if they can provide evidence of having spent at least 50 million Baht (approx. US $1.4m), on Thai registered businesses, and other Thai services and individuals.

TV commercials are not eligible for this incentive programme. Productions that portray Thailand in a negative light will also not be considered.
