      Hello, Myat Pwint Phyu.

      You can enter Thailand through the Visa Exemption Scheme and remain the country for a total of 30 days. However, you must meet the eligibility requirements to do so.

      In the case you do not meet the requirements, you can apply for a Thailand Tourist Visa before coming to the country, which will allow you to remain in the country for a total of 60 days.

    Dear Thai Embassy,
    The website mentions 45 days visa, can I get a 45 day visa?

    • May 29, 2024

      Hello, Sheran Jane Bolton.

      Unfortunately, the 45-day Visa Exemption Scheme had ended in 2023. However, you can enter Thailand through the 30-day Visa Exemption Scheme, so long as you meet the requirements.

    Hi, i am Romanian citizen but I live in Germany.
    What do I need for the visa on arrival for Thailand if I have an available Romanian passport?

    • February 14, 2024

      Hello, Simona.

      You will need a passport with a validity of at least 30 days remaining, have verifiable proof of accommodation in Thailand such as a hotel or apartment address, proof of a return ticket (open tickets do not qualify and traveling to neighboring countries does not count as proof of exiting Thailand), and proof of available funds (10,000 THB for single travelers and 20,000 THB per family).

      You will also need a completed Visa on Arrival form (available at immigration), a passport photo, and a fully paid return air ticket.

    My dear, please help. I am holding an Ethiopian passport and an Ethiopian too. I am coming to Thailand tomorrow for 6 days and will be taking Visa on Arrival but my passport expires on October 28. Does it have a problem?

    • September 17, 2018

      You need to contact the Airline company that you will take and see if they will allow you to board the plane. As for the Thai immigration officer as long as your passport validity covers the duration of your stay, then that will be considered.

    1: how do I apply for a 90 days visa for Australian passport holder
    2. how do my friend apply his 90 days visa for a Chinese passport holder

    Thank you very much.

    • September 12, 2018

      For Australian passport holder, you can only enter Thailand for 30days under visa exemption.
      For Chinese passport holder, you can only enter under visa on arrival for 15days.
      For both nationalities to stay longer than the given days, both need to apply a Thai Tourist visa at the Thai embassy.
      For Australian national, you can apply it at the Thai embassy in Australia.
      For Chinese national, you can apply it in China, if you have a residence permit in Australia, you can apply it at the Thai embassy in Australia as well.
      Both nationalities will get 60day entry and can be extended to another 30days inside Thailand.

    I am travelling to Phuket via Bangkok. I have 1.30 hrs of lay over time at Bangkok airport. I have booked the ticket through Thai Airways. So assuming this is not enough time for applying visa on arrival at Bangkok airport. In this scenario, can I apply on arrival visa at Phuket airport directly ?

    • July 2, 2018

      No. The visa on arrival must be applied at the point of entry ( which is Bangkok Airport). If you have booked your flight through Thai airways ( Your country-Bangkok-Phuket all Thai Airways), you may want to contact Thai Airways if they can facilitate your visa on arrival in Bangkok.
