Thai Elite Visa is a long-term visa for foreign nationals who want to make Thailand their second home or stay in Thailand for an extended period of time. It is listed under the Tourist Visa and is known as “PE” Privilege Entry Visa. With the Thai Elite Visa, your visa is valid for 5 to 20 years, but you will only be allowed to stay 1 year at a time before you will need an extension of stay, and more requirements and costs you may face when dealing with visa applications or extensions. Another common option for expats is to do a border run and get a new 1-year entry into Thailand.
The Thai Elite Visa is the perfect choice for expats and retirees who prefer not to deal with complicated bureaucracy. It is also great for investors and business people who travel to Thailand multiple times a year.
There are also numerous benefits that the Thai Elite Visa offers, such as hospital check-ups, expedited arrival and departure, hassle-free immigration, investment opportunities, and even shopping discounts.
