Amazing Thailand Grand Sale Passport Privileges enhance buying power of shoppers
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) launched its year-end Amazing Thailand Grand Sale promotion with a unique “Passport Privileges” twist, targeting arrivals from short-haul markets from ASEAN, East Asia and South Asia.
Weerasak Kowsurat, Minister of Tourism and Sports said, “This promotion is the first of a series of a ‘special year-end gift’ for international visitors while helping to stimulate revenue for the locals through the boost in tourist shopping activities. Following this, the Immigration Bureau is planning to offer double-entry and re-entry visas for tourists after having granted a two-month visa-on-arrival fee waiver for travellers from 20 countries.”
On from November 15, 2018, to January 15, 2019, the year-end Amazing Thailand Grand Sale promotion offers extra discounts on existing promotions already available from participating department stores and shops in Bangkok. It aims at boosting tourism revenue from those who especially enjoy shopping whilst travelling to and from Thailand.
Brochures, vouchers along with further details about the ‘Passport Privileges’ will be provided for tourists at the airports. Temporary downtown VAT refund counters will be open during the high tourist season shopping promotion.
