As a holiday destination the Kingdom of Thailand is one of the most popular locations on Earth. Boasting the best beaches, pristine weather, and some of the friendliest people in the world the Southeast Asian nation certainly lives up to the name, "Amazing Thailand."
Many people wishing to visit Thailand are unaware of what needs to be done in order to obtain a Thai visa to remain in the Kingdom. This page was designed for the purpose of explaining Thai visas and providing information on what can be done in order to obtain a either a short term Thai visa or a visa to stay in Thailand for a long period of time.
There are many different categories of visa for Thailand. The type of Thai visa that one ought to apply for will depend upon the Thai visa applicant’s situation and the eligibility requirements of the visa at issue. For instance, a twenty five year old Thai visa applicant will not be eligible for a retirement visa as Thai immigration regulations require the applicant to be at least 50 years of age in order to obtain a Thai retirement visa.
With this in mind, there are some Thai visa categories that are more popular than others. The Thai visas most sought after are:
Of all of these Thai visa categories, the Thai business visa is probably the most popular visa for those seeking to remain in Thailand for an extended period of time. For those with immediate relatives and family members living in Thailand, the Thailand Other Visa (also known as the Thailand O Visa) is the category most used for Family immigration to Thailand.
A Thai multiple entry visa is a one year visa. The visa itself has a validity of 1 year and during that time, the person holding the visas can depart from Thailand and return, upon each return, the Thai visa holder will be granted lawful presence in Thailand for 90 days.
Many people traveling from Great Britain to Thailand mistakenly believe that they are granted a Thai visa upon arrival. This is not true, when someone without a Thai visa arrives in Thailand from the United Kingdom and presents their passport if they are admitted into the country, they will be granted a Thai visa exemption. This allows the bearer of said passport to remain in the Kingdom of Thailand without a visa. This distinction is important because one must have a visa in order to gain certain legal rights in Thailand (example: a Thai driving license or Thai work permit will not be granted unless one holds a Thai visa). Also, Thai visas obtained in Great Britain will generally have validity of at least 2 months, compared to a Thai visa exemption which has a maximum validity of 30 days (and even less if granted at a land border in Thailand).
