According to the preliminary estimates of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, foreign tourists have contributed approximately 795 billion baht in revenue to the country. When combined with the income generated from Thai tourists, Thailand's total earnings from the tourism sector for the first 9 months of 2023 exceeded 1.3 trillion baht.

Among the factors negatively affecting the number of foreign visitors, the following were mentioned:
