BANGKOK (NNT) – The Minister of Tourism and Sports expects that there will be approximately 400 foreign visitors in early November and expressed his belief that the Bangkok protest situation will not affect their confidence.

Mr. Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, Minister of Tourism and Sports, said the Special Tourist VISA lasts 90 days and can be renewed twice. Each renewal is for 90 days. Foreign visitors must undergo a 14-day quarantine or strictly comply with prescribed guidelines against COVID-19 before undertaking travel.

On October 20, a group of Chinese nationals with special tourist visas (STV) will be the first foreign tourists allowed into Thailand on a chartered flight under a conditional entry scheme for selected groups of foreigners endorsed by the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

Another group will arrive in Phuket on October 26 and more groups will gradually arrive.

It is expected that by November 2nd, there will be approximately 400 foreign tourists newly arrived in Thailand. He expressed his confidence that the recent student demonstrations won’t affect the confidence of foreigners because tourists understand that Thailand does not tolerate violence.

The first group of 41 Chinese tourists is due to arrive at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport from Shanghai at about 5pm today (Tuesday), to be followed by a second group of about 100 tourists from Guangdong province on October 26th, according to Mr. Yutthasak Supasorn, Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), today.
