    Available Visas you can Apply for in Thailand

    Thailand is a Southeast Asian country known for its countless temples, ancient ruins, canals and floating water markets, sandy tropical beaches, and modern cityscapes.

    It is important to note that you have to apply for a Thailand visa before you travel. Thailand offers nationals of several countries visa-free entrance for a varying number of days (up to 14, 30, or 90 days).

    When you start the process of applying for a Thai visa, the first step to take is to get in touch with a Thai Embassy or Consulate. Normally, you should apply to the embassy or consulate in your country. However, if there is no Thai representation in your country, you may have to apply to the Thai embassy/consulate that’s in a neighboring country or through a visa application agency.

    You must contact them or visit their website in order to learn how to make an appointment (if one is required), about their opening hours, working days, and the preferred method of paying for the visa fee.

    Some of the different types of visas you can apply for are:

    Thailand tourist visa: which is issued to visa-required foreigners entering Thailand for tourism or leisure activities. This is a short-term visa, which can be issued for single or multiple entries.

    Thailand Transit Visa: which is issued to foreigners who will enter the territory of the Kingdom of Thailand in order to make their way to a third country of destination.

    Thailand SMART Visa: which is aimed at highly-skilled foreigners, encouraging them to work or invest in one of Thailand’s ten targeted industries, including medicine, robotics, aviation, agriculture, biotechnology, etc.

    Thailand Non-Immigrant Visa: which is issued to foreigners entering Thailand for reasons other than tourism or leisure.
