Phuket Deputy Governor, Piyapong Chuwong along with General Manager of Phuket International Airport, Pilot Officer Thanee Chuangchoo, and Chair of the Phuket Tourist Association, Bhummikitti Ruktaengam welcomed ambassadors and their spouses.
After disembarking from the aircraft, the delegation was briefed about the Special Tourist Visa, which was created mainly for tourists and businesspersons during the COVID-19 pandemic. When the STV visitors arrive at the airport, they will have to go through the temperature scanner, travel history check, immigration process and specimen collection before being escorted to an approved hotel for quarantine.
Activities today were designed to build trust and understanding among the ambassadors, who were asked to report Phuket’s readiness back to their countries.
During the stay in Phuket, on November 15 and 16, the delegation will attend tourism and social development activities as symbols of economic recovery.
