Какие преимущества Элитной визы Таиланда?

This visa allows for an uninterrupted stay in Thailand, eliminating the need to leave the country every 90 days, as required by other visa types. This visa also grants additional benefits depending on the selected package, for a membership fee.
  • Airport service:  A member doesn’t need to experience the hassle of visa runs, visa conditions, extensions, paperwork, and going to immigration from 5 to 20 years.  Members will have exclusive access to airport lounges and concierges and services, avoiding long lines, expedited passport processing, and immigration procedures once arrive in Thailand.  It will only take 30 minutes to process, unlike non-members that would spend almost the whole day in the immigration office.

“I had filled out the contact message to figure out how I would move me and my children to Thailand for a long term stay and I was met with incredible service, I was contacted straight away via email, set up a phone call and since I had read everything on the website I knew most of what I needed to know – we decided to get the Thailand Elite Family Premium Membership  and we couldn’t be happier not having to deal with issues staying in Thailand, I will happily be referring my friends to the Hawryluk Legal Team!”

Candice Johansson

“As My first language is Mandarin, there are some things that I didn’t understand while speaking to some other agents, but as I contacted Thailand Elite Phuket I was met with a Chinese speaking lawyer who was able to fill me in on everything I did not understand and within a few days we began the application process, I am currently awaiting my approval but I cannot be happier with the service I was met with.”
