Until 30 April 2020, citizens of Bhutan, Bulgaria, China (including Taiwan), Cyprus, Ethiopia, Fiji, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Malta, Mexico, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan and Vanuatu are all exempt from the 2,000 Baht VoA fee for single-entry leisure travel in Thailand, providing their stay is for no longer than 15 days in total.
