The MoC follows the recent announcement permitting Saudi nationals to travel to Thailand after the lifting of the travel ban for nationals wanting to visit the popular Southeast Asian destination.
Since the announcement, Almosafer has experienced huge growth in demand for travel from Saudi Arabia to Thailand.
During May 2022, searches for Thailand on Almosafer’s platform grew by 1100% in Saudi Arabia, and 477% in Kuwait, compared to February 2022
Almosafer executive vice president Muzzammil Ahussain said: “The signing of the memorandum of cooperation with The Tourism Authority of Thailand today is an important step in meeting the growing demand for tourism from the GCC to Thailand.
“This partnership will provide our consumers with the best experiences while strengthening ties between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom of Thailand.
“Thailand is an increasingly popular destination and we look forward to working together with The Tourism Authority to enable many visitors from the GCC to experience all that Thailand has to offer.”
