Thailand Extends Stay duration for Visa Exemption and VOA

Thailand CCSA has announced in its Last meeting that the Stay duration for Tourists Coming under Thailand Visa exemption and Visa On Arrival Schemes will be extended from 1 October 2022. 

Travelers Coming under the Thailand Visa exemption Scheme from 1 October 2022 till 31 March 2023, will be able to stay in Thailand for 45 days instead of 30 days, and they are still able to extend their stay with an additional 30 days from any immigration office around the Kingdom. The Total Possible Stay duration will be 75 Days. 

For Travelers entering the kingdom under the Visa on arrival Scheme, they will be able to stay in Thailand for up to 30 days (Non Extendable), Instead of originally 15 days. 

Thailand Extends Stay Duration

According to the announcement, This Visa Extension move’s Aim is to Maximize the Duration of Stay for tourists as much as Possible to increase their Average Trip Expenditures, Which will help in Boosting the Economy. 

Thailand has received a total of 3.3 Million International Arrivals Since the start of the Year, and is expecting this number to reach 9.3 Million arrivals by the end of 2022. Despite the Significant improvements in the Number of arrivals compared to 2020 and 2021, These numbers are still very Low compared to Pre Pandemic Numbers.

Thailand has welcomed Nearly 40 Million tourists in 2019, Therefore the Country’s Tourism Capacity is much Bigger than that, and Tourism Related Businesses are Still suffering, and the Main Focus markets for most of Hotels is the Local Domestic Market.

Therefore, The Government is Doing the efforts to Maximize the Average Expenditure Per Tourist During the Stay in Thailand, and one of the Tools used is to allow them to stay more in the kingdom, to Spend more for Accommodation, Dining, and any other Tourism Related Activity.
