      Dear Isabelle,
      If there is no Thai Embassy in Dominican Republic, you may check the Thai Embassy in your neighbouring countries if they can process your visa next year when the travel ban is lifted.
      Thank you.

      Visa on Arrival for Indian and Bulgarian has been suspended until September 30th. As for the age requirement, it is actually a requirement of the airline for an adult to accompany the minor to travel.

      Yes visa on arrival has been suspended until September 30 and also, no foreigners will be allowed to enter Thailand for the whole month of May. If you wish to stay in Thailand more than 14 days, it is recommended that you will apply for a Thai tourist visa issued at Thai Embassy in Saudi Arabia.

    Hi, I want to go to Thailand. Can I go now or do I need a medical certificate? I’m 67 years old.

    • In order for you to enter Thailand you need the following: present a valid Health Certificate with a negative COVID-19 laboratory test result issued within 72 hours of flight departure upon check-in. The lab test and examination date must be clearly stated on the health certificate and health insurance document that provides at least USD 100,000 COVID-19 coverage in Thailand.

    My friend holds a Russian passport and he needs to do VISA on arrival or he can come to Thailand without VISA because I see in the list of Visa on arrival have Russian on the list please make it clear. Thank you.

    • Russian passport holders may still enter Thailand under the 30-day bilateral agreements between Thailand and Russia. Aside from the passport, the traveler must present a valid Health Certificate with a negative COVID-19 laboratory result issued within 72 hours of flight departure (applicable to all nationalities) upon check-in. The lab test and examination date must be clearly stated on the health certificate and health insurance document that provides at least USD 100,000 coverage in Thailand.

      For the Thai immigration, it will be fine. Kindly contact the airline company if they will allow your son to board with nearly expired passport.

      If you have work visa in Malaysia, you can apply for a Thai tourist visa at the Thai embassy in Malaysia. You must have a visa before flying to Thailand.

      You need to contact the Thai embassy directly in Pakistan or in the country of your residence and apply for the appropriate visa.

    Hello,

    I am a confused about the requirements.In some websites the dimensions for photo is 4×6 but in some others is 3.5×4.5 . Also, the amount of cash in some websites is 10.000per person and 20.000 per family but in some others is 20.000 per person and 40.000 per family. Is there any change to the requirements? Which one is the correct?

    Thank you
