Except for G7 countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, and the United States), all other nationalities will be granted only a 30-day entry if entering by land.

Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the day of arrival in Thailand. 

Your proof of onward ticket can be a print or a copy on your phone. This cannot be a bus or train ticket. This must a flight ticket. If you are traveling on a one-way ticket or planning to take a bus or train to Laos or Cambodia, get a dummy proof of an onward flight ticket .

Proof of funds can be cash, ATM cards or credit cards. There were incidents where tourists were forced to show proof of funds in the form of cash. To avoid unnecessary trouble, I suggest carrying a bit of cash on you in Thai Baht or any major currency.

Thailand Visa on Arrival Application Form Sample

A return/onward flight ticket is mandatory and it must be within 15 days of arrival in Thailand. If your return ticket is over 15 days, you will be forced to rebook another flight ticket by the Visa on Arrival staff. You will end up spending a lot on rebooking so make sure your flight ticket is within 15 days.

Your return or onward ticket must be a flight ticket. Bus or train tickets are not acceptable. If you plan to travel to a neighboring country by land, you must still provide a flight ticket as proof of onward travel .

If you plan on traveling to a neighboring country by bus or train, get a dummy onward flight ticket for your Visa on Arrival. 

Hotel booking is mandatory. A minimum of 5 nights or more is required. Booking a hotel for the first 1 or 2 nights will not work. You will be forced to book the remaining nights by the VOA staff at the airport.

Proof of funds must be a minimum of 10,000 THB for individuals and 20,000 THB for families. You would need to show proof of funds in cash. You can get away by saying that you have your debit and credit cards on you. But, I strongly suggest you have at least 5,000 THB on your and for the remaining, you can show your debit card, credit card and bank statements.

Visa on Arrival (VOA) photo size

You may be forced to pay an additional 200 THB as an express fee for fast processing of your VOA. Sometimes you will not have a choice but to pay this express fee.

Money exchanges are available near the Visa on Arrival sections in the airports. No ATMs are available, so make sure to carry cash in THB or any major currency.

Visa on Arrival (VOA) processing time

Visa on Arrival process at airports is quick these days. It used to take at least an hour before. Either way, account for an additional one hour for your Visa on Arrival process at the airport just in case.

To save time, you can download and fill out the Visa on Arrival application form prior to your arrival.

THAILAND ONLINE VISA ON ARRIVAL (e-VOA)

Thailand e-Visa on Arrival by evisathailand.com

IMPORTANT e-VOA is NOT eVISA. Even with an e-VOA, you still have to go through the Visa on Arrival process and obtain your VOA stamp at the airport. It ONLY speeds up the process of obtaining Visa on Arrival at the airport since your document check and visa fee payment were already done online.

Hong long can you stay in Thailand with e-VOA

You can stay up to 15 days using e-VOA. No visa extensions are allowed.

Passport validity required for e-VOA

You can apply for e-VOA from any one of the two authorized visa agents. These are the only 2 agents authorized by Thai immigration.

e-VOA application tracking

THAILAND E-VISA

Thailand E-Visa is an initiative from Thai immigration to move the Thai visa process online. The idea is to replace the regular pre-approved visa from the embassy with the new E-Visa. The visa validity and entry are exactly the same as the pre-approved visa from the embassy. 

Thailand’s E-Visa portal offers both single and multiple-entry visas. You can apply for either one. But if the officers are not convinced that you need a multiple-entry visa, they may simply issue a single-entry visa. The fee for the multiple-entry visa is not refunded in that case.

Validity of Thailand E-Visa

Thailand E-Visa is valid for 3 months or 6 months depending on the entry type. 

  • Single-Entry: Valid for 3 months
  • Multiple-Entry: Valid for 6 months

When to apply for E-Visa

You can apply for a Thai E-Visa up to 3 months prior to your trip. The processing takes about 3-10 working days, so it’s recommended to apply at least a month prior to your trip.

How long can stay in Thailand on E-Visa

You can stay up to 60 days in Thailand on your single-entry Thailand E-Visa. 

With a multiple-entry E-Visa, you can stay up to 60 days on each entry. All entries must be made within the validity of your multiple-entry E-Visa. Meaning, even if you enter Thailand on the last day of your E-Visa, you will still receive a 60-day entry.

Both single-entry and multiple-entry E-Visas are extendable for additional 30 days at the local immigration office. 

Passport validity required for E-Visa

At the time of lodging your E-Visa application, your passport must be valid for at least 6 months for a single-entry E-Visa and 1 year for a multiple-entry E-Visa.

E-Visa application procedure

You can apply for your E-Visa on the Thai E-Visa portal . You must fill out the online application, upload the required documents and pay the required visa fee.

It provides an incentive to foreigners that work remotely, colloquially referred to as “digital nomads”, to stay and work in Thailand for extended periods without immigration or tax concerns.

If you successfully acquire a DTV, you will be rewarded with a 5-year multiple-entry visa and the right to stay in Thailand for a total of 180 days a year, with an option to extend for another 180 days. This is the perfect kind of visa if you’re looking to experience the Land of Smiles as a remote worker and earn income without the many restrictions and drawbacks of standard tourist visas.

How Much Does a Thailand DTV Visa Cost?

The Destination Thailand Visa costs 10,000 THB.

Eligibility Requirements for the Destination Thailand Visa (DTV)

While details regarding how to apply for a Destination Thailand Visa are still pending, some information on the requirements you need to fulfill has already been released. You need to meet the following eligibility requirements for the visa (subject to change):

  • You must be at least 20 years old.
  • You must have enough money to pay for the visa fee. 
  • You must prove that you possess at least 500,000 THB in your bank account to support your stay in the country.
  • You must provide proof of employment with a registered company.

If you’re a remote worker or digital nomad looking to maximize your journey while also having the option to work during your stay, the Destination Thailand Visa is created specifically for you. It is also a perfect fit if you are visiting Thailand to participate in the following activities: 

  • Thai cuisine
  • Education and seminars
  • Medical treatment
  • Foreign talent
  • Events related to art and music

Benefits of a Thailand DTV Visa

These details are also not fully confirmed, and are subject to change:

  • The income requirements and visa fees are lower for Thailand compared to other Southeast Asian countries offering similar visas.
  • You can extend the visa once for up to 180 days which costs you 10,000 THB.
  • A total of 93 foreign nationalities are eligible for the DTV Visa Thailand.
  • This visa allows you to legally work remotely while in Thailand for international companies and clients.  
  • You can bring along your spouse and any children below the age of 20. 
  • As the visa lets you stay up to 180 days in Thailand, you won’t need to pay any taxes on income derived from foreign sources. 

Downsides of a DTV Visa Thailand

  • While you can perform certain activities and earn income, you cannot work for a Thai company requiring a Thai work permit.
  • If you want to change the type of visa you’re on, this will terminate your DTV.

No release date or information on how to apply has been announced for the visa yet, though more news will be coming in late June or early July, 2024. It is highly likely that you will be able to apply for it through a Royal Thai Consulate, a Thai Embassy, or the immigration office in Thailand.

Thailand opens doors: Two-month visa-free travel for Indian passport holders

A total of 93 countries are included in this welcoming policy shift. The global tourism industry has faced significant challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to a decline in tourist arrivals worldwide. In response, several countries, including Thailand, have implemented new measures to boost tourism and attract visitors from around the globe. These measures primarily involve the relaxation of visa regulations.

Thailand's recent decision to allow remote employees, graduate students, and retirees to stay for extended periods aligns with its aim to boost tourism and bolster the economy. This progressive move will come into effect next month, offering travelers from 93 nations the chance to explore Thailand for a duration of 60 days, providing ample time to immerse themselves in its rich culture and scenic landscapes.

Furthermore, remote workers will benefit from an extended visa validity of five years, with each stay limited to 180 days. Thailand, known for its affordability and allure, has long been a popular destination for travelers worldwide. In 2023 alone, the country welcomed approximately 24.5 million foreign tourists. With initiatives like these, the Thai government aspires to attract even more visitors, aiming for a target of 25 to 30 million foreign tourists annually.

On this note, let’s have a look at top 6 must-visit attractions in Thailand:

Bangkok - The capital city Bangkok is a vibrant blend of modernity and tradition. Explore the iconic Grand Palace, home to the revered Emerald Buddha, and wander through the bustling streets of Chinatown. Don't miss the vibrant markets, serene temples, and flavorful street food that make Bangkok a sensory delight.

Chiang Mai - Set in the northern mountains of Thailand, Chiang Mai is renowned for its ancient temples, lush jungles, and rich cultural heritage. Visit the sacred Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, trek through the pristine forests of Doi Inthanon National Park, and immerse yourself in the vibrant night markets and local craftsmanship.

Phuket - Phuket is Thailand's largest island and it is known for its pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant nightlife. Relax on the famous beaches of Patong, Kata, and Karon, explore the stunning Phi Phi Islands by boat, and indulge in water sports such as snorkeling, diving, and surfing.

Ayutthaya - Historical Ruins: Step back in time and explore the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located just north of Bangkok. Marvel at the impressive temples, statues, and palaces that once formed the capital of the Kingdom of Siam, and learn about Thailand's rich history and cultural heritage.

Krabi - Natural Wonders: Krabi, located on the Andaman Coast, is renowned for its stunning limestone cliffs, emerald-green waters, and pristine beaches. Discover the picturesque Railay Beach, embark on a boat tour of the famous Phi Phi Islands, and explore the hidden caves and lagoons of Ao Phang Nga National Park.
