Travelers to Thailand May Pay Entry Fee from Next Year

Posted on 22 Oct, 2013 Category: Thailand,Travel News

If you're considering a trip to Thailand, go sooner rather than later as the Thai government is considering a plan to charge foreigners entry fee from January 1st, 2014 in a bid to improve the quality of visitors.

According to report, the entry fee is pegged at  500 Thai Baht, roughly 16 U.S. dollars per visitor entering the country by air, while those who come in by land would be charged 30 baht (around 60 pence) a day.

This is just a proposed bill. If passed, it will kick off from January 1st, 2014. However, the government might postpone it to mid-January to avoid confusing tourists in Thailand's peak tourist season which actually runs from November to late March with a second peak in July and August.

The weather is cooling down, now it’s time to pack your baggage and escape to Thailand to enjoy the tropical sunshine, check out our 10-Day Thailand Holiday with Phuket Sunshine.
