Must know things for people traveling visa free to Thailand

Thailand has for some time now announced a Visa exemption program, which helps them attract more tourists from around the globe and provide a chance to people to have a joyous vacation which is not only budget-friendly but involves less to no red tape requirements, aka VISA. However, there are some conditions for this program, and they are mentioned as follow:

  • The Visa exemption program is only applicable for tourism purposes, not work or anything else.
  • According to the Visa free to Thailand program, around 50 to 55 countries around the globe are eligible to avail of this offer.
  • A valid passport that will not expire within six months at the time of travel is required for traveling visa free to Thailand.
  • You can only stay for 30 days in Thailand without a visa (for specific countries only).
  • This offer can only be availed with a gap of 6 months in between every visit.
  • The proof is required for assurance that it will not be more than 30 days, ideally an air ticket.
  • Visa runners can not avail visa free Thailand service. (Visa runners are foreigners who leave Thailand to other countries for a brief stay and come back to Thailand and live 15-30 days without a visa. A lot of people have abused this scheme; hence Thailand has made sure to no tallow visa runners anymore).
  • Entering Thailand through one of the immigration checkpoints at the borders with neighboring countries, the visa free to Thailand is only for 15 days.
  • Thailand has the right to dismiss the program any time they want without any further notice and can add or subtract more terms and conditions and countries to their existing list.
