Thai tourism fee to begin in third quarter
Thailand will implement the proposed tourism fee in the third quarter. The THB300 Thailand Tourism Fee (TTF) will start being collected between August and September this year, said Mongkon Wimonrat, assistant tourism permanent secretary.
The TTF system includes 30-day insurance coverage for tourists. The fee will be collected by airlines, which are required to develop compatible software. The fee is imposed on air travellers to start and will expand to land and sea crossings at a later time.
