90 Day Visa For Thailand From Uk

Visas shouldn’t be stressful. They should be easy and painless, right? In the case of this post I hope to alleviate some of that stress by covering off on one of the more complicated visas in Thailand. The Non-Immigrant O visa is a type of visa which lasts 90 days per each entry. It’s a complicated visa which you can’t just rock up to the airport, hand over your passport and a form and walk straight through immigration. Sure you can do it, but you’ll be in for an unpleasant day at the airport after being turned around at immigration and sent packing. The Thai Visa runs for 3 or 6 months and needs to be entered into Thailand before the expiration date, otherwise you will be fined or face criminal charges. In order to obtain a new visa you will need to leave the country (except to re-enter), you will then have a new 90 days starting from your re-entry date.

Are you getting ready to take a trip to Thailand? Are you trying to decide on the best visa option for your stay? You’ve come to the right place. The Thai VISA can be a confusing and difficult process, but with the help of this guide it can be made a lot simpler.

Thailand Special Tourist Visa Qualifications

Foreigners applying for a Special Tourist Visa must be:

  • Foreigner from a low-risk country according to the Public Health Ministry regulations.
  • Accept compliance of preventive measures as prescribed by the government,
  • including submitting to alternative state quarantine (ASQ) in accredited hospitals/hotels for not less than 14 days upon arrival.
  • Provide evidence of a place to stay or accommodation during the long stay visit.
  • Show proof of payment for hotel accommodation or admittance to hospitals chosen as alternative state quarantine (ASQ) facilities.

At this stage, the definition of ‘low risk’ country remains open for interpretation and will change over time. It is highly recommended for those who are wishing to apply for the STV they must enquire at the Royal Thai Embassy or a consulate in their home country before making any bookings or paying money for agents or other services.
