Thailand plans to extend 45 day visa free stays until year end

The Tourism Authority of Thailand will propose extending the 45 day visa exemption on arrivalpolicy until the end of the year to boost tourism recovery.

Between October 1, 2022 – March 31, 2023, foreign tourists arriving in Thailand are eligible to stay in the kingdom as follows depending on their passport country…

  • Visa on Arrival stays will be extended from 15 days to 30 days. Passport holders from 19 countries are eligible for Visa on Arrival.

  • Visa Exemption stays for passport holders from 64 countries that have bilateral agreements with Thailand will be extended from 30 days to 45 days.

Thailand surpassed its target of 10 million tourists in 2022, welcoming 11.5 million in total, which the TAT largely attributes to Thailand’s extended visa on arrival/visa exemption policy.

As reported by The Thaiger, the Thai Government is currently considering to keep the 45-Day Visa Exemption stamp that is currently in place and set to expire on March 31, 2023 for another nine months.
