Thailand Elite Visa

Thailand Elite Visa

Having asked around recently to see how many are familiar with such a visa, just about nobody was able to explain to me how to obtain such a visa and just what exactly is involved?
In this article, we will help to shed some much- needed light on how the process works.

The Thailand Elite Visa has been designed to offer people the opportunity to obtain a long-term multiple-entry visa with the right to reside in Thailand for up to 20 years. There are various pulling factors as to why one would consider this visa to be beneficial for them. As many are familiar with Thailand’s attractive tax regime this does play an important role for many who are currently residing on this visa. Thailand can be a bit of tax haven at times and has strong potential in terms of investment opportunities. Thailand’s tax regime is considered very beneficial, similar to that of Singapore and Hong Kong. Safety is another very important factor and here in Thailand it easy to feel safe and secure. This is widely due to a reduction in poverty and sustained growth, as well as significant progress in terms of socio-economic progress. There are seven different program options available, each varying invalidity.

Elite Easy Access:
This visa has a 5-year validity period and costs THB 500,000.

Elite Family Excursion:
This visa is also valid for a 5-year period, however, it is for a minimum of two people at a one-time cost of THB 800,000. Additional family members can then be added for an extra THB 300,000.

Elite Superiority Extension:
These visas offer a 20 -year validity period and the cost is THB 1 million.

Each of these programs comes with access to certain benefits. All visas are multiple entries. Such services include; expedited immigration service, access to Elite personal assistants, government concierge service, exclusive Limousine services, exclusive prices at partner hotels, complimentary green fees, access to free spa treatments at selected luxury spas, free medical check up’s at selected top hospitals and access to Thailand Elites range of restaurants. The introduction of Thailand Elite was established back in 2003 and is considered to be very successful to date. The number of applicants per year is growing quite rapidly. Currently, there are over 240,000 foreigners who have joined the Thailand Elite Visa program. The Elite group plan to partner up with condominium property developers in the near future which will allow many who purchase within a certain amount to obtain a free Elite visa for up to 20 years.
