The information comes from a press conference in which Mr. Taweesilp Visanuyothin spoke.

The relaxation will cover migrant workers in the construction and food export industries, overseas visitors who help organize trade shows, overseas visitors on film production teams, and overseas travelers who are members of the Thailand Elite Card program, said Dr. Taweesilp.
