Thailand to postpone immigration fees to September 1, 2023
Initially, the Thai government planned to collect Thai entry fees from June 1, 2023, and had already obtained cabinet approval. However, according to Minister of Tourism and Sports, Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, it is likely that the planned date will not be met due to problems with the collection method for air travel.

When entering the country by air, an immigration fee of 300 baht will be collected together with the airfare at the time of ticket issuance. On the other hand, Thais are exempted, and even among foreigners, holders of diplomatic and official passports and work permits are exempted.

According to Minister Phiphat, the collection will start on September 1, 2023 and is currently under consideration.
