Visa on Arrival (VoA)

VISA ON ARRIVAL (VoA)

According to the Ministerial Regulation of the Ministry of Interior of the Kingdom of Thailand, passport holders from Bulgaria, Bhutan, China (excluding Hong Kong and Macau), Cyprus, Ethiopia, Fiji, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Malta, Mexico, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Uzbekistan and Vanuatu are entitled to apply for VoA at 48 designated immigration checkpoints, which will allow tourists to enter the country for the purpose of tourism and stay for up to 15 days.

Requirements for VoA Application

– Completed application form
– Photograph (4×6 cm)
– Passport with at least 6 months of validity**
– Confirmed return ticket within 15 days.
– 2,000 Baht fee in cash
– Applicant must carry sufficient funding (at least 10,000 Baht per person or 20,000 Baht per family) and provide proof of accommodation in Thailand.

**Remarks: It is stipulated in Thai Immigration Bureau (Rules and Procedures for Visa and Change of Visa) Regulations 2014 that the passport should have a minimum 30 days of validity at the time of applying for VOA at designated Thai VOA Checkpoints. However, as a general rule and the recommendation of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), it is advised that a passport should have at least 6 months of validity while traveling aboard. So it could be the case that certain airlines might not allow those who travel with less than 6 months of validity on the passport to board the plane.
