Being a long-term visa, the Thailand Elite Visa offers your family the convenience of long-term visas without the stringent eligibility requirements.

You also get access to an immense array of VIP perks to make your life in Thailand unforgettable. Any family members you include on this membership will be able to benefit from these perks.

Thailand Privilege membership offers a long list of benefits, including but not limited to:

  •  A 5-year multiple entry visa for you and each family member that is renewable depending on the membership package
  • Opportunity to reside in Thailand for up to 1 year without leaving, resettable each time you re-enter the country
  • The right to travel into and out of Thailand without needing a re-entry permit
  • Access to the new privilege points system*, allowing for greater flexibility when choosing privileges through a points-based feature
  • Ability to upgrade your membership to higher tiers for better benefits
  • Faster-paced application process without any of the common visa application drawbacks
  • No annual fees to worry about
  • Ability to use the premium lane at Thai international airports in Bangkok, Phuket, or Chiang Mai, for fast-tracked VIP services
  • Access to Elite Personal Assistant (EPA) services upon arrival for a complimentary introduction to Thailand and free escort to the premium lane
  • Free yearly health checkups at top hospitals throughout Thailand, usable once per membership validity
  • Personal accident insurance during your first membership year (the number of times you can use it depends on the membership package you applied for)
  • Discounts at top-tier shopping malls, department stores, and high-end restaurants across Thailand
  • Seasonal gifts, free movie tickets, and buy-1-get-1-free promotions
  • Numerous family-friendly incentives consist of yacht rentals, birthday river cruises, special trips to movie theatres, and many more!

*NOTE: The Thailand Privilege Points feature is a major selling point of the Thailand Elite Visa. If you have included family members in your membership, they will share the same allotment of points you receive. For example, if you applied for a Thailand Elite Visa Diamond Membership package and added your family, the 55 privilege points you earn will must be shared but are usable by yourself and each additional family member.

Required Documentation

Applying for a Thailand Elite Visa also entails submitting important documents.

Don’t worry your GSSA will help pull everything together for you as part of the service.

   These mandatory items consist of:

  • Application fee of ฿50,000*
  • A Membership Application Form (Core Member) for the membership you’ve chosen
  • A Membership Application Form (Next Members) for any additional family members
  • A Membership Application Fee Payment Form
  • A photocopy of each applicant’s passport bio page
  • A passport-sized photograph of each applicant
  • Documents proving the current status of your legal relationship with each relevant family member (such as a birth or marriage certificate)
  • Completed Education Visa Holder Acknowledgment Form (only applicable if you or your family members are current or previous holders of an ED Visa)

*NOTE: The application fee must be paid before your application can proceed through a compulsory background check. If your background check is a success, then the application fee will be deducted from your total membership fee. When it’s time to pay your membership fee, you only need to pay the remainder. A failed background check will result in a refund, but voluntarily withdrawing your application surrenders this fee.

Once you have reached out to a GSSA, they will work alongside you and any family members you want to add to your membership to prepare your application and ensure it is appropriately submitted.

The timeline for your application is estimated to be between 1 to 3 months.

Here are the stages you will need to complete

  1. After selecting your GSSA and informing them of your interest in a Thailand Elite Visa, they will send a checklist detailing all the mandatory items. Gather all the required items and send them to your GSSA for review.
  2. Your GSSA will instruct you to pay the application fee. After paying the fee, send a copy of the receipt to them.
  3. After receiving your application packet, your GSSA will carefully review it. Once everything is all in order, they will submit your application to the Thai government through the Thailand Privilege online application portal and send you the login details so you can continue to monitor your application status.
  4. The Thai government will appoint an immigration officer to assess your background history. The background check will last 4 to 6 weeks and the Thai government will notify you via email if you are successful or not.
  5. Upon completing your background assessment, you will receive an approval letter and a document with payment instructions. You then have a total of 30 days to pay your membership fee.
  6. Upon completing your payment, you will receive a welcome package in 5 to 10 working days. This package will include a welcome letter and your membership ID. The date you receive this will mark the start date of your Thailand Privilege membership.
  7. Book an appointment to affix your Thailand Elite Visa to your passport by phoning the member contact center. You can also apply for a physical Thailand Privilege card for yourself and any family members you’ve included. This is helpful as some organizations will ask for it before giving you access to a privilege.

After passing through these steps, you will have earned yourself a Thailand Elite Visa, enabling you to make use of all the available benefits and reside in Thailand long-term until your membership expires.
