The Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand will start charging a tourist fee of 500 baht in 2022. This is reported by the Bangkok Post.
The funds received from the collection will be directed to the "Tourism Transformation Fund", the creation of which was approved by the Economic Situation Management Center in Thailand.
