In a surprising move, Thailand withdrew the ฿2,000 (₹4,582) visa-on-arrival fees for Indians last year. This rule was eligible only till October 31, 2019. However, Thailand has now announced that there will be free visa-on-arrival for Indians until April 2020.
So if you're visiting Thailand before April 2020, rejoice because you don't need to pay the visa-on-arrival fee anymore! If you're part of the gang that has been dodging a vacation to Thailand, now's the time to reconsider.
Indian tourism in Thailand
Thailand received 1.6 million tourists from India in 2018 alone and we spent a whopping Rs. 160 billion on our trips. India ranks 6th amongst all nationalities who visited Thailand and thus, thus they are opening gates to lure more Indians into their country.
In addition, Thailand Tourism is also attracting specific groups like honeymooners, first-time travellers, women travellers and families. At the same time, the latest 'Hidden Shades of Thailand' advertisement seeks to attract tourists away from mainstream destinations such as Pattaya and Phi Phi and show them the lesser-explored Thailand. Wat Phumin, Nan, Ko Tao, Surat Thani, Thale Noi, Phatthalung are destinations that are beautifully covered in the video.
Moreover, Thailand is being boosted as a "value-for-money" as well as a niche destination which is the perfect amalgamation of what an Indian tourist expects from a vacation. Travelling between the countries is becoming increasingly convenient with 307 weekly flights connecting 16 major cities to Thailand.
So what are you waiting for? Thailand is becoming more affordable and yet, promises an exquisite experience. Book your tickets and tick Thailand off your bucket list this year!
