The number of foreigners visiting Thailand in 2023 was approximately 28.15 million, an increase of approximately 17 million from 2022, which was approximately 11.15 million.
The Ministry of Tourism and Sports (MOTS) has released statistics on the number of foreigners entering Thailand in 2023.

According to data released by MOTS, the number of foreigners who entered Thailand in 2023 was 28,150,016. In 2022, there were 11,153,026 people, so this is a significant increase of 16,996,990 people, more than double.

During 2022, entry restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic were gradually lifted over the course of a year. On the other hand, there have been no entry restrictions since the beginning of 2023, and foreign tourists to Thailand have returned in earnest. The presence or absence of these immigration regulations is thought to have been a huge factor in the doubling of the number of foreigners entering Thailand. It is expected that the number of foreign tourists visiting Thailand will continue to increase steadily in 2024.
