Tourism and Sports Minister Pipat Ratchakitprakan will next week ask the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) to consider scrapping the Thailand Pass registration once and for all.
Pipat said he would ask the CCSA during a meeting on June 17 to discontinue Thailand Pass for good. The move, he said, will attract more tourists to visit Thailand and make entering the country more convenient for them.
The Tourism and Sports Minister will propose to the CCSA that starting on July 1 foreign tourists won’t need to register via the Thailand Pass.
“If the CCSA agrees to cancel Thailand Pass, it will be more convenient for foreign tourists to enter the country and they will no longer be required to purchase health insurance policies,” Pipat pointed out.
“This will attract more foreign tourists, especially those from neighboring countries. More of them will cross the border to visit Thailand.”
