Thailand Privilege Card Expands Distributor and Membership Base, Penetrating Middle East Market


Bangkok, 14 May 2024 Thailand Privilege Card Company Limited, a provider of long-term visa privilege services with exceptional benefits, under the supervision of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), was honored by Ms. Thapanee Kiatphaibool, TAT Governor, and Ms. Nipa Nirannoot, Consul-General of Thailand to Dubai and the Northern Emirates, as they officially inaugurated and visited the Thailand Privilege Card booth at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2024.

This event, which promotes the largest tourism sales in the Middle East and ranks third globally, aims to penetrate the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) market, expanding the distributor and membership base for those seeking long-term residency in Thailand with benefits tailored to every lifestyle. This is achieved through the presentation of four special membership cards: GOLD, PLATINUM, DIAMOND, and RESERVE with membership durations of 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, and 20+ years, respectively. The event took place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Mr. Manatase Annawat, President of Thailand Privilege Card, stated that the Arabian Travel Market 2024 is the most significant and monumental tourism business event in the Middle East, bringing together leading industry players from around the world. Thailand Privilege Card recognizes the growth potential of countries in the GCC group with high purchasing power, aligning with its strategy to expand into emerging markets. Participation in this event is therefore a crucial opportunity to recruit distributors and members, promote special membership cards for foreigners seeking long-term residency in Thailand, enhance business opportunities, expand the membership base, and engage with agencies or business groups capable of becoming distributors to expand the market in the region and bring quality long-term expatriates to Thailand, thereby contributing to the country’s revenue distribution.

Additionally, Thailand Privilege Card has been invited to participate in the networking event between Thai entrepreneurs and leading businesspeople from Saudi Arabia within the ‘Muay Thai Gala 2024’ event, hosted by the Royal Thai Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This presents a valuable opportunity for both public and private sector entities in Thailand to collaborate in promoting and disseminating Thai national arts internationally. Through participation in this event, the project aims to promote the membership card programmes to enthusiasts of Thai culture, as well as introduce Thailand Privilege Card to tourism and sports authorities in Saudi Arabia. This engagement also facilitates business matching with major players in related industries.

According to TAT statistics, it was found that in the past year, tourists from the Middle East region had the highest average spending per person per trip while travelling in Thailand. This aligns with the company’s policy to expand its membership base into high-potential new markets, thereby stimulating the economy, generating revenue, and bringing foreign currency into the country. Additionally, it strengthens the company’s position as a global leader in long-term visa privilege,” stated Mr. Manatase.
