Fee for visa on arrival to double from 1,000 baht to 2,000 baht, starting from 27Sep, 2016

Travel News 10 Aug 2016

Starting from 27Sep 2016, Thailand will increase its visa on arrival fee from THB1,000 to THB2,000. The fee will be remained as same if travelers apply for visas at Thai embassies or consular offices.

The reason for the doubling of the visa on arrival fee stemmed from the fact that many tourists tend to apply for visas at immigration checkpoints, which may pose a security threat and allow undesirable elements to enter the county more easily.

The visa on arrival is valid for just one time and cannot be renewed.
