What is the Thailand Elite Visa?

Originally named the Thailand Privilege Card project, the Thailand Elite visa is a government-sponsored program first proposed by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports in 2013.

Thailand Elite is a legal program created for esteemed foreign guests of the Kingdom of Thailand. Foreigners who are members of the exclusive Thailand Elite Visa Program can be issued a variety of different options of the visa from 5 to 20 years with differing varieties of privileges.

The program is intended by the Kingdom to make VIP services, privileges and other benefits for a long hassle free stay available for its foreigners either invested in Thailand or on a permanent holiday.

The Thailand Elite visa membership program’s goal is to make it more convenient for tourists and foreign investors to gain entry into Thailand by eliminating the bureaucracy normally associated with such processes.

Ultimately, the goal is to encourage more tourists to come over and stimulate the Kingdom’s bustling tourism industry, as well as to attract more foreign capital to boost the economy.

Anyone who is legally qualified to enter the Kingdom of Thailand is eligible to sign up for membership and receive the Thailand Elite Visa! Applicants can choose from one of various Elite Privilege Cards discussed here.

  • Retirees
