Foreign visitors entering Thailand by land or sea would still be need to fill out the form, according to Deputy Government Spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul. To relieve passenger congestion at international airports, the government would temporarily suspend the requirement for international travelers to fill out TM 6 immigration forms.

Ms Traisuree stated that immigration officers may still collect data on arrivals using biometric systems at airports, and that additional travel data can be obtained from airlines. Following a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, Prime Minister and Defense Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha stated that this will streamline the procedure for international tourists, who are already required to fill out numerous documents upon arrival. It will also help relieve congestion, he noted, as the number of international arrivals has increased. Since 2017, Thais have not been required to fill out a TM 6.

General Prayut stated that authorities will assess the result of the announcement and determine whether it needs to be altered, particularly if passengers cannot be traced. The Interior Ministry will speed up the announcement’s drafting, which is expected to be completed in a week.

She estimates that the change will save roughly 45.5 million baht in printing expenditures each year for an estimated 65 million TM 6 forms.

Because of these changes we do not expect a full removal of the Thailand Pass on July 1st, and it is still unclear how 90 day reporting will work if the TM6 card.

This was a very minor part in the process of entering Thailand. It will not have any noticeable effect on numbers of tourists coming !
