Limits set on Thai people’s use of gov’t financial support for domestic tour packages
NNN: The Thai government will set limits on the Thai people’s uses of its financial support for domestic tour packages, confirmed a senior government official on Wednesday.
Under the Shared Happiness domestic tour packages, each eligible Thai national will be given the cash grant equivalent to 40 percent of a hotel’s room rate on condition that the recipient not stay longer than five days or the room rate not cost more than 3,000 baht (about 96.22 United States dollars) in total, according to Fiscal Policy Office (FPO) Director Lavaron Sangsanit.
The domestic tour packages provided by the government will only be used at participating hotels in Thailand.
One recipient may choose to stay at more than one hotel in the country but the total of days to spend at the hotel will not exceed five days, either consecutive or not, or the cash grant to be provided will not exceed 3,000 baht in total, the FPO director said.
Such financial support will cover a maximum of 5 million days to be combinedly spent by all recipients at hotels in the country and will only be valid from July to October under the government’s domestic tour packages, primarily designed to stimulate tourist industry among Thais.
The cash grant via the e-voucher system will only be handed out to the eligible people on first-come-first-served basis, Lavaron said.
Those domestic tour packages for the people are not related to others, which are yet to be provided separately for some 1.2 million medical personnel, including village-based public health volunteers and subdistrict-based health promotion officials nationwide.
