Tourist Visa - Thailand

Recommended Posts

Just had a look at my Thai Air App on my Android phone I noticed they were pushing to buy a Visa Thailand E-Visa I am pretty sure if you arrive at Immigration off an international flight the Visa is Free I'm wondering if Thai air are trying to pull a fast one?

Sorry just to be clear a 30-day tourist visa is free

To be clearer the 30 day visa exempt stamp is free on arrival at the airport if your nationality qualifies you for it.

How long is the visa valid for and is it multi entry?

If you scroll through the "hot deals" you come across this.

If you click on "Apply" it directs you to "VFS Global".

How is it Thai air trying it on?

The app is obviously meant to be used globally so this is very handy for folks requiring a Visa on arrival which most if not all of us are exempt from.

I always do the same, easy peasy. 

That may change if all Thais need to go through e-passport gates though.

Yes, the explanation I read is what Esco said. Replaces Visa on Arrival for about 20+ countries, importantly China and India. This should relieve a lot of pressure at VOA counters.

Many thanks for the info etc... after reading your comments I can see the logic of putting this on the App
