Thailand Privilege Visa GOLD Membership


Thailand Privilege Visa Gold Membership

Thailand Privilege Visa Gold Membership

The first membership is GOLD Membership, designed for newcomers, digital nomads, tourists and expats. It offers a 5-year visa at 900,000 THB, making it ideal for those wanting to experience Thailand without a long-term commitment.

TPC has simplified its membership options, phasing out eight Elite Visas and offering four new ‘Thailand Privilege Card’ packages; including the Gold Membership. These packages focus on providing you with more choices and tailored privileges for various lifestyles.

The new visas will target four main segments:

  • Frequent International Visitors/Investors.
  • Workcation/Digital Nomads.
  • Expats and Retirees.

Overview of the GOLD Membership

Validity: 5-Years
Price: THB 900,000 / USD 24,768
Note: Please check the latest currency rate, as it is constantly changing, for up-to-date USD pricing.
Privilege Points: 20

Thailand Privilege members can stay in Thailand without the need to leave the country every 90 days or go on visa runs, as required by other visa categories. The staff at Thailand Privilege will assist applicants with the 90-day reporting process. Another benefit is that if you are a frequent traveler, you can enjoy multiple entry visits during your membership.

The Gold Membership is designed for individual use, as it does not offer family add-ons or family plans as part of the base membership offering.

Thailand Privilege has decided to implement a ‘Point System’ instead of fixed benefits for different memberships. The points must be used within 1 year, and it won’t be carried over to the next year.
