For travelers visiting Thailand, getting a VISA is a straightforward process. Generally speaking - there are different kinds of visas for tourists. Depending upon various factors, travelers are required to fill out the necessary documentation. Let’s have a closer look - 

  • If the stay is less than 30 days, tourists can apply for an e-visa/on-arrival visa. This allows for a stay of up to 15 days.
  • On the other hand, a regular Thailand visa allows for a stay of up to 30 days, with a validity of 3 months. 
     

Once all the required documents are submitted to the authorities, travelers can expect to receive their tourist visas within a few weeks of their application.

Types of Visas for Thailand

Following are the types of Visas that are used while visiting Thailand: 

1. Visa on arrival:

  • This allows travelers to stay for a period of 30 days. 
  • The following airports ( out of 38 ) offer on-arrival visas to travelers:
  1. Suvarnabhumi International Airport
  2. Don Mueang International Airport
  3. Chiang Mai International Airport
  4. Phuket International Airport
  • The process of obtaining a visa on arrival involves applying in the immigration area. The next step involves showing the passports to the designated officer. After that, the travelers will finally get the last immigration approval before they can enter Thailand. 

2. Thailand E-visa: 

  • Thailand’s E-visa is regarded as the best way of getting a visa for tourism in Thailand. 
  • This single-entry visa allows for a stay of 15 days, and its validity lasts for 30 days. 
  • To obtain an e-visa, travelers are required to fill out an online application ( on Thailand’s VFS website), after which the visa is issued within 2-3 business days. 

3. Thailand Express E-visa:

  • Thailand Express E-visa is similar to the regular E-visa; i.e., both allow travelers to stay for a maximum duration of 15 days. 
  • The difference lies in the processing duration for both as Express E-visas are processed within 24 hours upon payment of an additional amount.
