Benefits of the Elite Privilege Visa

Benefits of Thailand Elite Visa Membership

1. Extended Stay: The Elite Privilege Visa allows for a long-term stay in Thailand without the need for continuous visa renewals. Holders can stay for the duration of their membership without worrying about frequent immigration visits.

2. VIP Services: Visa holders receive VIP treatment, including expedited immigration processes and access to exclusive lounges at airports. This feature is particularly beneficial for frequent travelers, providing comfort and convenience during transit.

3. Government Concierge Services: The Elite Privilege Visa offers assistance with various government services, easing the process of dealing with bureaucracy and paperwork for things like driver’s licenses and work permits.

4. Healthcare Benefits: Some membership tiers offer complimentary healthcare check-ups and access to premium medical services, ensuring holders have the best care available while residing in Thailand.

5. Lifestyle Privileges: The visa includes access to various lifestyle benefits, such as discounts and memberships at golf clubs, spas, hotels, and dining establishments. These perks enhance the overall quality of life for holders residing in Thailand.

6. 90-Day Reporting: Elite Members enjoy a hassle-free experience as the program facilitates and streamlines this mandatory reporting on behalf of its members. This ensures compliance with Thai immigration laws while providing members with a more convenient and stress-free stay in the beautiful nation of Thailand.

Is it worth it?

The value of the Elite Privilege Visa largely depends on the applicant’s personal and financial circumstances. Are you interested in 10 years or 15 year stay in Thailand? The Elite Platinum membership package comes with 10 years and the Elite Diamond membership package with 15 year stay.

For individuals frequently traveling to Thailand, the benefits provided can significantly outweigh the costs over time. The convenience, lifestyle perks, and exclusive services make for a comfortable and hassle-free living experience.

For families planning for a long stay in the Kingdom, the availability of Elite family packages simplifies the process for Elite family members to enjoy the same privileges, making it a convenient option for those relocating with dependents.

Expatriates planning on living in Thailand for an extended period can benefit from the long-term visa options, avoiding the hassle associated with standard visa renewals.

However, if you only plan to visit Thailand occasionally or for short durations, the high upfront cost might not justify the benefits received. It is crucial to carefully consider your travel and living plans and weigh the visa cost against the expected privileges and services.

    If I pay 600,000 baht for the 5 year visa but later decide I want the 20 year Thai Elite visa, can I pay the additional cost? Is that allowed?

    • May 14, 2021

      Dear Jim,
      Good day.
      Yes, you can upgrade your membership to 20 years Thai Elite membership and Thai Elite Visa. You only need to pay the remaining 1.4 million baht for the Thai Elite Privilege membership and visa or you may pay 400,000 Thai baht to upgrade to 20-year Thai Elite Superiority Extension.
      Thank you.
