    Tourist e-Visa: How to Get It?

    Over the last two decades, Thailand has swiftly become one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. With ancient temples, stunning beaches, friendly locals and mouth-watering cuisine, it’s not surprising so many people fall in love with this country. To cater to the ever-growing influx of visitors, the Thai government introduced a new e-visa system for certain nationalities. The system is designed to facilitate the process of getting a visa on arrival and reduce congestion at airport border controls. If you are about to fly off to Thailand, head over to Byevisa Website for all the details about the e-visa. In the meantime, you can find an overview of how it works and which nationalities are eligible right here on this page.

    Just like any other country, what process you need to follow to enter Thailand will depend on what passport you have. A total of 64 countries worldwide can visit without needing to get a visa at all. These countries include most of Europe, the USA, Australia, South Africa, Singapore and Japan. For the most part, visa-exempt countries are granted a stay of 30 days, but the lucky nationals from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru and South Korea can stay for up to 90 days.

    List of Thai eVisa Eligible Countries
    The following 18 nationalities are eligible for a visa on arrival that grants them a stay of 15 days:
    • Bhutan
    • Bulgaria
    • China
    • Cyprus
    • Ethiopia
    • Fiji
    • Georgia
    • India
    • Kazakhstan
    • Malta
    • Mexico
    • Nauru
    • Papua New Guinea
    • Romania
    • Saudi Arabia
    • Taiwan
    • Uzbekistan
    • Vanuatu
    These are the countries that can now benefit from the electronic visa system introduced in 2019. The process was put forward by the Immigration Bureau of Thailand along with VFS Global in a bid to make the arrival process smoother, easier and quicker for these nationalities. The goal has been for a further boost in tourism as a result. Before the e-Visa was introduced, there were often long queues at airport checkpoints because the relevant documents needed to be checked before the visas could be issued. Now, you can apply for the visa online before you travel and the authorization will be sent to you by email. This means that you can simply present the permit at the border to get an entry stamp in your passport.

    Thailand Online Visa Application Process & Requirements
    The whole process can be completed online and you can apply up to 2 days before you plan to travel (although it’s probably best to not leave it to the last minute). To apply, you will need to provide the following information:
    • Personal Details
    • Passport Details
    • Accommodation Address
    • Flight Information (including the flight number)
    Don’t forget that, regardless of visa requirements, all travelers wishing to enter Thailand must have a passport valid for at least 1 month with at least 1 blank page in it. You may also be asked to show return or onward travel bookings as well as sufficient funds to cover your trip. It’s a good idea to have this information to hand in case border officials request it.
    Some countries, including most African and South American countries, will also need to provide a yellow fever certificate proving they have been vaccinated before they are granted entry. With this in mind, make sure you check if you are in this category. If you have a certificate, it’s a good idea to bring it with you either way.
    Once your visa application is approved, you will receive it in your email inbox. This is so you can download the e-visa onto your phone, to show it on arrival or print a copy of it if you prefer.
    Please note that, on arrival, you should also provide a passport-sized photo with a white background and you will also need to pay THB 2000 (approx. $63) in cash. Only the local currency is accepted, so you will need to make sure you have some on you before you leave.

    Where to Gain Entry with the Thailand eVisa

    Not all entry ports into Thailand are set up to accept electronic visas just yet. The ones that currently accept it are:
    • Suvarnabhumi Airport (Bangkok)
    • Don Mueang International Airport (Bangkok)
    • Chiang Mai International Airport
    • Phuket International Airport
    These are the busiest airports in the country, covering the three main areas of interest for visitors spanning from north to south.

            Thai e-visa system expanded, upgraded

            Tourists from around the world will be able apply for Thai visas more easily. The Thai e-visa system has been expanded and upgraded, so tourists from around the world will soon be able to apply for Thai visas more easily. The Foreign Ministry has been tasked with refining the e-visa system so that it can handle the very large number of tourists who want to use it.

            The Foreign Ministry’s Trisulee Trisaranakul explained that the ministry has been told to expand the capacity of the Thai e-visa system so that it can deal with all tourists wherever they may come from, with the same standards of service. The number of foreign arrivals may be rising – especially after the Chinese government ended its quarantine requirements – but the system was initially designed to handle a lot more passengers than are currently arriving. Trisulee said Chinese arrivals will increase when the Chinese government starts allowing tour groups to visit 20 countries, including Thailand, from February 6. Visa on arrival and e-visas have made it much easier for tourists to visit the kingdom. However, the Immigration Bureau is responsible for visas on arrival, while the e-visa system is run by the Foreign Ministry

            The e-visa system allows foreign nationals to submit visa applications and copies of passports online instead of having to visit a Thai embassy or consular office in their country. Once their applications are approved, they receive an electronic visa stamp that they can print out to show to their airlines and immigration officials upon arrival.

            Many different types of visas are available as e-visas. The most common are tourist visas, business visas, and investor visas. People applying for non-immigrant visas can also apply for ED for studying, O for visiting family and friends, and F for government or diplomatic travel. Long-term resident visas and long-stay visas will also be able to be issued electronically. Smart visas and other official and diplomatic visas will be able to be done through the Thai e-visa system as well. People who are approved will receive their e-visas through email.

            Those who want to apply through the Thai e-visa system can do so at:
