Tourist Visa

Overview

The Discontinuation of Temporary Arrangement on Exemption or Required Documents for Tourist Visa Application

The temporary arrangement, effective since 1 December 2012, on exemption of required documents for tourist visa application of those frequent travellers who have travelled to Thailand within a year shall be discontinued. Under the normal process, the frequent travellers are now required to submit all necessary documents.

To avoid a lengthy and unnecessary visa process, all references and contact details provided in the application must belong to the applicant, particularly his/her direct phone numbers.

Any wrong category of visa applied or false statement or forged documents would result in denial of visa requested.

The Royal Thai Embassy reserves the right, however, to ask for particular documents or interview the applicant, if necessary.

Bangladesh nationals who wish to travel to Thailand must be in possession of a visa, unless they are nationals from countries which are not included in the List of Countries which have concluded agreement on the exemption of visa requirement for holders of Diplomatic or Official passport or service/special passport with Thailand and permitted to stay for 30 and 90 days.

Visa Fees

Fee Validity of Visa Validity of Stay

BDT 14500 (Multiple Entry) 6 Months 60 Days per Journey.

Other than the visa fee VFS Global service charge BDT 800 and bank draft making charge BDT 40 per applicant is payable.

Important Note:

The Royal Thai Embassy reserves the right to request for additional documents as deemed necessary. For more information log on to: www.mfa.go.th Consular Services Visa & Travel Documents

It is better to explain why you do not have a document than to submit a false document. Your application will be automatically refused if you use a false document, lie or withhold relevant information and/or if you have breached the Thai immigration laws and have misused the visas granted previously.

Application form must be fully completed and applicant’s contact numbers given must be accessible at all time during the visa process and any false statement given would result in denial of visa requested.

The Thai Immigration reserves all rights to grant or deny the entry clearance into the Kingdom of Thailand even though you have a valid visa.
