According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), expatriates may not be able to join tourism stimulus packages, but the government pledges to end dual pricing as soon as possible. Yuthasak Supasorn, governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), said the We Travel Together stimulus campaign is carried out with budget from the Loan Act, which has a clear mandate and objectives that make it hard to include foreigners.
TAT will discuss stopping dual pricing for expatriates with the National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department, as well as famous tourism sites.
Mr Yuthasak said the move will let expats save money, allowing them to spend more as a key target to boost domestic tourism.
The agency wants to introduce an identity card to verify expats’ status, helping to distinguish them from tourists so they will be charged the same price as locals.
