Thailand – Govt to Collect Entry Fees from Foreigners


Via: The Nation

Public Health Minister Pradit Sintavanarong said Thursday that the government plans to collect entry fees on foreign tourists.

Pradit said he had consulted with other government agencies concerned about the entry fees and a decision would have yet to be made on which agency would be in charge of collecting the fee.

He said foreigners, who stay in the kingdom for more than three days, would be charged Bt500 ($16.13 USD) while those who stay no more than three days would be charged Bt30 ($.97 USD) a day.

Parts of the fees would be used to compensate medical service costs for foreign tourists, Pradit said.
