What is a Thailand Elite Visa?

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.

Applied for Thailand’s elite visa already, but doubt that I will get it as applicants will be selected case by case, just wanted to say thank you to the thaiger anyways and hopefully, I will get my elite visa.

Tanya G.


Was very complicated applying for this service on the government website and hence we contacted Thaiger. The service was very good, the article gave a lot of insight and easy to apply for the visa.



500,000-baht application fee, seems a lot but if you weigh out your odds it would cost the same as doing the 90day reporting for 5-10 years. I have already applied hopefully the 500k is all I need to spend.
