Thailand will allow visa exemption for Chinese and Kazakhstani tourists starting from September 25th to increase tourist arrivals. The decision to include Kazakhstan is due to severe winter weather in the country and the interest shown by tourists. The visa exemption will last until February and its impact will be assessed by the government. The economic slowdown in China has led to fewer Chinese tourists visiting Thailand, so the visa exemption is seen as a strategic move to attract more visitors and counter the decline. Thailand expects a significant increase in Chinese tourists during the exemption period, as well as a boost in tourism income. The country hopes that the visa exemption will incentivize Chinese tourists to choose Thailand as their destination over domestic travel.
