Visa Requirements in Thailand

When considering permanent residency in Thailand, it is important to understand the visa requirements and types available. Depending on your nationality and purpose of stay, you may need a visa for entry into the Kingdom. The most common visa types include Non-Immigrant, Tourist, Marriage, and Retirement visas.

Tourist Visa

Perfect for those visiting Thailand for tourism purposes, the Tourist Visa is divided into sub-categories such as the visa Exemption scheme, Tourist Visa (single or multiple entries), and Special Tourist Visa (single entry only).

Thailand Elite Visa

Under the Thailand Elite Visa program, individuals can obtain visas with durations of 5, 10, or 20 years.

Non-Immigrant “Business” Visa

This visa is ideal for foreigners looking to work in Thailand and obtain a work permit. It can be applied for at a Thai Embassy or by converting a tourist visa.

Marriage or Guardian Visa

This visa is designed for foreigners married to Thai nationals or those with family members who are Thai citizens. To qualify for a marriage visa, the applicant must meet specific financial requirements and be legally married to a Thai citizen.

Retirement Visa

For retirees aged at least 55 years, the Retirement Visa allows long-term stay in Thailand. Applicants must meet age and financial requirements to be eligible for this visa.

Permanent Residence Application

To apply for permanent residency in Thailand, one must hold a Thai non-immigrant visa for at least three consecutive years. Applicants must also meet specific criteria based on investment, work/business, humanity reasons, or expertise categories.
