Large group dialogue with Immigration Bureau, Tourism Council of Thailand Tue 14 May 2019

JFCCT is grateful to Tourism Council of Thailand organizing a meeting with senior representatives of the Immigration Bureau. The meeting included preliminary coverage of some important topics in the JFCCT Tourism Agenda: (i) foreign Tour Co-ordinators who would work alongside licensed Thai Tour Guides to provide essential value-adding support to group tours; and (ii) TM.30, or 24 hour reporting on movements. JFCCT has proposed that TM.30 has many negative aspects and that changes are made so that it is not used. JFCCT’s Tourism agenda for Immigation also includes (iii) use of eGates and (iv) eVisas. The meeting agreed to focused follow up meetings.
