Thailand is exploring e-visas with an introduction phase scheduled to take place by the end of this year.

Minister of Tourism and Sports, Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, confirmed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is currently evaluating the project.

While visas are the domain of the Immigration Bureau, introducing e-visas would decrease visa fee revenue at Thai consulates worldwide, a matter that will need agreement from Foreign Affairs.

She was commenting on ways to ease visa formalities and make travel to Thailand more convenient during a press conference, Tuesday, convened to announce the hosting of the World Travel and Tourism Council Global Summit, 26 to 27 April, in the Thai capital.
