Thailand government announces a new scheme for the travelers

Posted by Marine2Alpine on Thursday, 6th June 2024.

Thailand has recently introduced a new initiative to attract tourists back after the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the Thailand Traveler Safety scheme, visitors will receive medical coverage of up to $14,000 in case of accidents, as announced by the tourism minister. Additionally, the government will provide compensation of up to one million baht (approximately $37,270) which is 30, 92,258.36 rupees in Indian currency in the unfortunate event of a visitor’s death.

This move comes as Thailand’s tourism sector continues to grapple with the aftermath of pandemic – induced travel restrictions, with a slower-than-anticipated recovery in tourist arrivals. By offering enhanced safety measures and financial protection, Thailand hopes to rebuild confidence among travelers and stimulate the resurgence of tourism in the country.

Historically, Thailand has been a favored destination among young backpackers worldwide, drawn by its idyllic beaches, vibrant culture, and thrilling adventures. Through initiatives like the Thailand Traveler Safety scheme, the country seeks to reaffirm its status as a welcoming and secure destination for travelers seeking both relaxation and excitement.

While the Thai government’s new scheme offers up to $14,000 in medical coverage for accidents, it is important to note that it excludes incidents caused by negligence, intent, illegal acts, or risky behavior. Tourists can enroll in the program via the Thailand Traveler Safety website.

Even though the number of tourists increased to 28 million in 2023 compared to 11 million the previous year, when compared to the pre-pandemic levels of 40 million in 2019, the current number is significantly low. In 2024, Thailand aims to attract 35 million visitors and achieve $55 billion as its target revenue.
