From October 1, the former tourist Thailand returns to all foreign travelers – without covid bans and restrictions. From this day, another new rule for Russians comes into force.
The first day of the penultimate month of autumn will go down in the history of Thailand's tourist life as the day of returned freedom. In general, all covid restrictions that have been in force over the past two years have been canceled – both at the entrance and within the country. There is some more good news:
For the Russians, there is another reason to rejoice. They will be able to take advantage of a visa waiver that extends their stay in the kingdom without a visa from 30 to 45 days between October 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023.
According to the Phuket Immigration Office, at the end of the 45-day stamp, an extension of the stay for another 7 days is allowed.
The Consulate General of Russia in Phuket announced this on September 30, citing the relevant decision of the Thai government.
In addition, during the mentioned period, it is possible to re-enter Thailand for a further stay of 45 days. But the actual decision on the foreigner crossing the border will be made by the immigration officer at the checkpoint in each case individually.
Visa relief is more likely to go unnoticed by Russians who come to Thailand for the purpose of tourism . Indeed, despite the fact that tourists began to rest longer in Thailand, on average, the duration of the rest does not exceed 15 days.
However, those Russians who go to Thailand for a long time will definitely appreciate the innovation.
Thailand is coming to the winter season prepared and “charged” for success. With the complete removal of restrictions and the planned resumption of direct flights from Russia, the kingdom's chances of a noticeable increase in Russian tourist traffic are increasing.
Recall that from the end of October, Russian tourists can count on direct flights to Thailand from the airline Aeroflot. These are flights to Phuket and Bangkok.
Biblio-Globus took blocks of seats on these sides. This allowed the company to offer tours to Thailand on this transportation cheaper than 100 thousand rubles. per person. That is, the entire tour package is at the price of only one one-way flight, subject to the purchase of an air ticket from free sale.
Direct flights to Phuket and from IKAR are planned. She will carry tourists to Phuket & nbsp; PEGAS Touristik.
