The Thailand tourist visa will be available for travelers who meet the basic tourist visa requirements. It will be necessary to have a passport from one of the eligible countries.
Travelers with French, British or Chinese citizenship will be able to enter Thailand with an electronic visa obtained prior to travel in the first quarter of 2019. This will enable a stay of up to 60 days, which can be extended up to 90 days once in Thailand.
For stays of less than 30 days in Thailand, it is not necessary for nationalities included in the visa exemption scheme to obtain a tourist travel. Eligible travelers just need to complete an arrival card which will be issued to you on the plane journey there.
In order to request and obtain a Thailand tourist visa electronically, you won’t need to visit an embassy as this process can be completed online.
Citizens from eligible countries, including Chinese citizens, are now able to get an eVisa on arrival before traveling through a simple online application. The new Thai eVisa on arrival permits travelers to avoid long queues at the border and pass through a dedicated fast line upon arrival. Eligible citizens will also save money, as the 2,000 Baht visa on arrival fee is being waived by the Thai government for online applications until the 13th of January, 2019.
As more countries are added to the Thai eVisa scheme, we intend to keep our website up to date with the latest visa information.
To successfully submit the Thailand eVisa application, applicants will also need to have a credit or debit card to pay the Thailand travel visa fee. Once the application has been approved the eVisa will be sent to the email address provided on the application.
