Thai Immigration Has Announced New Visa Exemption Policy

Thai Immigration has recently announced new rules on visa exemption.

From June 20th, 2021 to Septermber 30th, 2021, if you can prove that you are coming to Thailand for tourism purposes, you can stay in Thailand for up to 45 days. This does not require a visa.

This means that if you land at the airport without going to a consulate or a embassy, you will get a stamp that say that you can stay in Thailand for 45 days. If you cross the border into Thailand without a prepared visa from a consulate or an embassy, you will get 45 days.

There is a catch. It is not for all countries. It is for the following countries in alphabetical order:

  1. Andora
  2. Austrailia
  3. Austria
  4. Bahrain
  5. Belgium
  6. Brazil
  7. Brunei
  8. Canada
  9. Czech Republic
  10. Denmark
  11. Estonia
  12. Finland

  18. Indonesia

  21. Italy
  22. Japan
  23. Korea (Republic of Korea) (South Korea0
  24. Kuwait
  25. Latvia

  28. Luxenburg
  29. Maldives
  30. Mauritus
  31. Monaco

  46. Sweden
  47. Switzerland
  48. Turkey
  49. Ukraine
  50. UAE
  51. UK

This new policy shows how desperate the Thai government wants to attract tourists. COVID-19 obviously has hit the tourist industry hard and they see this new policy as a way to revive it.
