Thailand is relaxing its visa requirements

Multiple entry six month visas for all!

Thailand is officially going ahead with plans to offer multiple entry-six month visas for citizens of all countries in an effort to boost tourism.

This is great news for anyone planning to visit Southeast Asia who wants improved flexibility in moving around the region. Once the new visa becomes available it’ll allow travellers to enter the country multiple times during the six month validity without the hassle of renewing or purchasing a new visa.

The multiple entry visa will become available within the next 60 days, and will cost THB5000. The current one-month visa will remain available at a cost of THB1000.

Although Thailand is hardly a country struggling to attract visitors, it has launched a three-year tourism strategy to boost inbound travellers and promote sustainable development. The country wants 28 million foreign visitors this year, a number they estimate to generate THB2.2 trillion in spending.
