Thailand welcomes same-sex couples to use “premium lane” at Bangkok airport throughout Feb

For the month of February, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has partnered with the Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT) and Immigration Bureau to launch “Amazing Thailand, Amazing Romance” which will "enable couples, straight or gay, traveling together to expedite their arrival in Thailand."

It is the first time such campaign has been launched. The fast track immigration access will be only be available to those entering Thailand via Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok.

TAT advises in a press statement:

Couples who visit the “Amazing Thailand, Amazing Romance” counters — located at both the East Concord (which receives passengers from Gates A, B, and C) and the West Concord (which receives passengers from Gates E, F, and G) — can register for the “premium lane” and avoid traffic at immigration. Registration only takes a few minutes and requires that one partner provide basic information including name, country of residence, length of stay and e-mail address. The information will be used solely to provide updates to travelers regarding TAT’s upcoming events, promotions and activities.
