Now Get Free Visa To Visit Thailand

Tuesday, November 29, 2016


With effect from December 1, 2016 and up to February 28, 2017, Thailand has waived visa fee of 1000 THB for those tourists who apply for visa at Thai embassies or consular offices or through authorised agents like vfs-global. The agents will continue to charge their service fees and courier costs as hitherto. Similarly, the visa on arrival fee between these dates has been halved to 1000 THB from the earlier 2000 THB. It looks like the dates mentioned above are the dates of travel rather than the dates of submitting visa applications. These changes will affect the tourists from 19 countries who are required to take visa before travel to Thailand or have to take visa on arrival. Visa on arrival to visit Thailand is available at 42 designated checkpoints. With this latest reduction in the visa fee that follows doubling of visa on arrival fee in September 2016, Thailand expects to receive more tourists from the 19 countries during the upcoming busy tourist season. However, it is anybody's guess as to what extent a 1000 THB per person reduction in the cost of travel encourages more people to travel to Thailand. Read below for the list of 19 affected countries...
