“The launch of the ‘Welcome Back to Thailand’ campaign corresponds with the Thai government’s quick-win measures to boost tourism income through the ease of travelling policy by revising and facilitating the visa application procedure and exempting the visa fee for tourists. This partnership with AIS 5G and other partners also underscores the TAT’s direction to expand collaboration with stakeholders and suppliers and to leverage the digital transformation,” says Chattan Kunjara Na Ayudhya, TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing, Asia and the South Pacific.

According to a press statement, so far, in 2023, Thailand has welcomed 20.3 million foreign visitors, with the majority, about 14.7 million visitors, coming from the Asia-Pacific markets including China, Malaysia, and India.
