As I posted elswhere:

 

Transforming the bank accounts of those that have dipped downward because of Covid to returning upwards and making them flush again.  Covid has a way of creating problems, oops This government has created problems because of Covid for the Tourism community.  The problem is that this fee will never see the daylight.

 

Covid issues will still be around for the long-term unless this government makes concrete plans that do not cost the tourists extra money.  Maybe the fund will pay for the Covid tests that they are and will be requiring for entry into the country and then to offset a medical scheme that would cover those in the tourism sector who get sick.

The PSC remains 700 baht.

 

There was some talk about raising it to 1,000 baht.

 

Now there is talk of keeping the PSC at 700 baht and collecting an additional 500 baht.

 

Think they're still sorting the mechanism for collection.

 

A self-filling trough.

It used to be a 500 baht payment departure tax then increased to 700 baht and then it was allegedly added to a flight ticket price, now several years down the road another 500 baht tax is being charged to make a total of 1300 baht to visit Thailand which will in due course be upped.

 

Multiply that by 30000000 visitors and its a nice money earner.

Oops it should be 1200 baht total not 1300.
