Thailand Visa

It is advised to apply for the visa in the month of March- April as Thailand celebrates the Chakri day on April 06 of every year, and during this period visa fees would be waived-off. I planned my trip in the month of April and applied through a visa consultancy firm, surprisingly, I did not pay any visa cost except a service charge.

For applying for the visa in your country, you are required to fill the visa form along with mandatory ID proofs:

  • Passport or travel document with validity not less than 6 months with two opposite blank pages.
  • Visa Application Form completely filled in and signed by the applicant.
  • Checklist signed by the applicant.
  • Two recent photographs of the applicants per the specification.
  • Visa fees.
  • Evidence of permanent residence in India/abroad (non-Indian passport holder).
