FAQ about Thai visa


1. I would like to go to Thailand for vacation for 2 weeks. I hold British passport. Do I need a visa?

2. As a British businessman, I need to travel a lot. I have to go to Thailand very frequently on business. Is there any facility for frequent business travellers like me?
3. I want to work in Thailand. I am a British, living in the UK. How should I go about getting necessary visa?
4. I am a Lithuanian. I want to go to Thailand for sightseeing for just a week. I understand that Lithuanian nationals have to apply for visa before entering Thailand. But there is no Thai Embassy in my country. Can you please give me some advice?
5. I have obtained a tourist visa from the Royal Thai Embassy in London. They forgot to include a date of expiry in the visa. I had trouble at the airport but fortunately the Immigration officer allowed me to enter. Now I want to extend my stay but the Immigration Office insisted that they cannot permit the extension unless the visa is fixed. What should I do?
6. I am an Indonesian national currently working for a Company in London. My company has assigned me to attend a training course in Thailand for 6 weeks. Should I apply for visa, and where can I do that?

13. I have been in Thailand since last week with a multiple-entry business visa. I happened to lose my British passport yesterday. What should I do?

 First, you need to go to a police station for a report of the loss.
Then you need to go to the British Embassy in Bangkok for an issuance of new passport or temporary travel document. Finally, you need to bring the new passport or travel document to the Immigration Office for an endorsement. You need to apply for a new visa on your new passport before coming to Thailand next time.


14. Can I go to Thailand if the validity of my passport is less than 6 months?

As a general rule, passports should have at least six months of validity when travelling internationally. Most countries will not permit a travel to enter their country, and will reject visa application, unless the passport will be expired at least six months after the final day of travel. So, if your passport has less than six months remaining until the expiration date, you should renew it right away. 

However, if you are entitled to Thailand's tourist visa exemption scheme, may not notice the expiry of your passport until last minute, and decide to go to Thailand anyway, this is at your own risk. It is entirely the discretion of the airlines and the immigration officer whether or not to allow you on board the aircraft and enter Thailand, respectively.  

Please make sure of the validity of your passport whenever you plan to travel.
