Thailand Visa on Arrival (VOA) procedure and files necessary for Indians! — Tanya Khanijow



I visited Thailand in the thirty day period of February 2022, and there were so quite a few methods in area for arrival and departure, as the region experienced just reopened for intercontinental Travellers in that thirty day period! The technique for getting into the region and implementing for a Thai Go (This is a COVID-19 protocol, and may modify in potential when you are looking at this) have changed numerous moments given that. But the just one thing worthy of conversing about listed here in depth for me, is the Visa on Arrival (referred to as VOA in the relaxation of the posting) course of action! It is due to the fact no make a difference when you are traveling to in potential, the VOA course of action is probable to continue being the exact.

So, I opted for the VOA for 15 times for my take a look at so that I did not have to utilize for an e-VISA in progress. Even so, if you have some time on your arms, or if you desire to take a look at for more time than 15 days, I would propose that you utilize for an e-VISA!

So, here are a checklist of points that you will want for a VOA as you land in any international port of arrival in Thailand:

  1. Verified return ticket for a day in just 15 times of arrival (Can also be on the 15th day of arrival): So for this, you will want to have a confirmed return ticket at arrival and departure from land into other countries is not definitely counted as proof of departure. So, let us just say you will need to have a confirmed return AIR ticket.

  2. Passport duplicate and the passport have to be genuine and must be valid for at least 30 times.

  3. Evidence of keep (confirmed regional handle) for the complete duration of your stop by: Now this is a place truly worth mentioning, because upon my arrival at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, I was requested to keep my confirmed hotel bookings for getting a VOA. Which frankly, I didn’t have at the time due to the fact my excursion was a tiny adaptable. I just had a verified booking for my initially two times. So, here’s what I did:

    Hack: Linked to airport wi-fi, take a look at https://www.booking.com/, searched for homes less than the filter “free cancellation” & “book now spend later” and e-book a hotel for the complete period of the trip for which you do not have a reserving. You will not be billed for this booking and you can quickly terminate once you acquire your VOA.

  4. A charge of 2,000 THB is payable on entry and it must be paid in hard cash and Thai forex only. For obtaining income in Thai forex, there are numerous currency exchanges right before the immigration verify level wherever you can trade dollars (and other prominent currencies) for Thai currency. If you want to withdraw dollars from an ATM, you may perhaps have to request the immigration officer for enable because there are no ATMs right before the VOA checkpoint at atleast Suvarnabhumi Airport of Bangkok. I did the identical, and I was permitted entry into the airport with a stability staff. At the time I withdrew the required amount of money, I was escorted again to the VOA checkpoint, exactly where I paid out for my visa charge and was then instantly stamped with a VOA.

  5. Evidence of resources: You can be asked to demonstrate evidence of money at minimum 10,000 THB for each particular person and 20,000 THB for each household for the duration of your stay in Thailand. I was personally not questioned for the similar, but in scenario you are requested, you can carry your lender assertion with you for screen at the checkpoint.

And with all of this in put, you can be expecting to get a VOA stamp on your passport which allows you to journey in Thailand for 15 days!
