& BUSINESS HELP:
The Cabinet ruled visitors from China and India would
continue to have visas on arrival but withdrew Russia and
Uzbekistan. The government slashed visas on arrival at
the airport from 96 to 15."Taking into consideration
the large numbers of tourists and investors from China and
India, the Cabinet decided that visitors from those
countries should still be able to apply for visas on arrival
at the airport," Kuthep said. Presently, China's status
covers Hong Kong and Taiwan as well, which contributed to
the decision in China's favour. He dismissed earlier reports
that Indians worked as beggars and gangsters in Thailand.
"In-depth investigation showed that those beggars and
gangsters were from other South Asian countries, not
India," he said. The Cabinet removed 19 countries from
56 nations whose citizens had "visa-free" entry
into Thailand for 1 month. Those countries removed are
Burma, Mexico, Egypt, Oman, Tunisia, Chile and Bahrain.
