Thailand Expects 10 Million Visitors from China, Topping Earlier Forecast of 5 Million

Thailand expects 7-10 million visitors from China in 2023, topping its earlier forecast for 5 million arrivals from the world’s second largest economy that recently reopened its border.


The Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul on Monday revoked rules from the aviation regulator on the weekend that required visitors to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination.

The health ministry told reporters that proof of vaccination was not needed as there was sufficient immunization globally. He also noted that unvaccinated tourists will be allowed to enter without restrictions as well.
