Thailand Privilege Visa PLATINUM Membership


Thailand Privilege Visa Platinum Membership

Thailand Privilege Visa Platinum Membership

The second membership option is PLATINUM Membership, designed for expats, digital nomads, and tourists who want a longer stay in Thailand. It offers a 10-year visa at 1,500,000 THB.

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.

While the previous version of the Thailand Elite Visa no longer accepts new applications in September, the new Thailand Privilege memberships will be open for applications on October 1, 2023, with additional benefits and a privilege points system.

Overview of the PLATINUM Membership

  • Validity: 10 Year
  • Price: THB 1,500,000
  • Points: 35

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. Similar to the previous Thai Elite Visa, Thailand Privilege will assist members with the 90-day reporting process.

In addition, you can include family members such as your significant other, parents, siblings, or children with the PLATINUM Membership for an additional cost of THB 1,000,000 per person.

Applying for your PLATINUM Membership

You can apply for the PLATINUM membership from October 1, 2023 and beyond. You don’t have to be in Thailand to apply as you can be anywhere in the world to do so. The application process will be very similar to the previous Thailand Elite.

Here is a how to apply for your PLATINUM membership:

Application Submission

You will need the following documents to apply:

  • Signed application.
  • Signed PDPA form.
  • Color copy of your passport.
  • Photo of yourself in front of a white background.

Background Check

When you submit your application, a background check will be conducted and you must meet the following criteria:

  • Not having been adjudicated bankrupt.
  • Not having been sentenced by a judgment to imprisonment in any country except for an offence committed to negligence.
  • Not having been declared as a person of unsound mind, incompetence, or quasi-incompetence.

Payment of Membership

After passing the background check, and being approved, you will get a Welcome Letter from Thailand Privilege. It will tell you the next steps, the benefits of the GOLD membership and how to pay.

There are several ways you can pay, and they include the following:

  • Credit card
  • Bank transfer

Getting the Visa

Members have a few ways to get their visa affixed to their passport, which we will explain below.

1. Upon Arrival

When you arrive in Thailand, you will be able to receive the visa stamp at one of the following airports:

  • Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport
  • Phuket International School
  • Chiang Mai International Airport

2. Thai Embassy or Consulate

You can get your Thailand Privilege Visa by contacting the Thai Embassy or Consulate in your home country. You will get the stamp fixed in your passport there.

3. Immigration Office

If you are already in Thailand, you can get the visa at the Immigration Bureau in Bangkok. You are able to book an appointment with the Thailand Elite office or with a certified Thailand Elite agent if you need any assistance.

Additional Considerations and Restrictions

Working in Thailand

Thailand Privilege Visas, including the PLATINUM membership, are classified as a Tourist Visa. You won’t be allowed to work in Thailand, however, if you are a digital nomad or someone working for an overseas company, that is fine.

To work or earn an income in Thailand, you must have a valid work permit. This permit is not available with a Thai Elite visa. If you want to get a job or start a business in Thailand, you should contact your Thai Privilege agent to explore the many options for obtaining a work permit.

Excluded Countries

Not every country can apply for a Thai Privilege PLATINUM Membership. Citizens from the following countries CANNOT APPLY:

  • Asia: North Korea, Afghanistan, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka
  • Africa: Central Africa, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Sao Tome, Principe, Sierra Leone, Somalia, and Sudan.
  • Middle East: Algeria, Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Syria, and Yemen

Contact an Agent Today

If you have any questions, concerns, or need help applying for a PLATINUM Membership, it’s recommended that you get in touch with an agent such as Siam Legal, or fill out the inquiry form on the right side.
