To prevent long lines, the Thailand Embassy in India advises Indians to obtain their visas from the consulate or embassy. Long passenger lines are a result of an increase in visitors at the Bangkok airport as a result of Thailand's recent opening of its borders to tourism.
The lengthy lines to clear immigration are the cause, and many individuals are also applying for on-arrival visas. Pattarat Hongtong, Thailand's ambassador to India, recommended Indians on Sunday to obtain their visas from the embassy or consulate to avoid waiting in large lines at the Bangkok airport.
Further stating that it is completely normal for any airport, not only those in Thailand, the Thai Ambassador. He continued by saying that no one could predict the precise number of incoming travelers or tourists, which is why they advise Indian travelers to obtain a visa from the Embassy or Consulate General before departing for Thailand to travel without difficulty.
In order to make it easier for guests to travel, Pattarat also stated that the airport is hiring more staff. According to a survey from the Thai Government, 3.78 million tourists visited Thailand from January to August 17 of this year after COVID, which is a sizable amount to manage. Pattarat noted that Thailand has also instructed to boost the workforce at the airport to deal with the long lines of on-arrival visa applicants because Thailand's economy is strongly dependent on tourism.
Notably, Thailand has eliminated all of the COVID requirements for visitors, including vaccination records and test results. Long passenger lines are now a result of an increase in travelers since that time at Bangkok's airport.
