  • Since November 15, 2018 to 13 January 2019 cancelled the visa fee for a visa on arrival for 21 States whose citizens have the right to obtain a visa on arrival. They include citizens of Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and other countries of the former USSR.

  • In the period from 1 December 2016 to August 2017, the government of Thailand temporarily canceled the visa fee for visas for tourists of all countries, issued in advance at consulates outside of the country. Also at this time reduced fee for visa on arrival since 2000 baht to 1000.

  • Since March 20, 2016 came into effect new rules that severely increased the penalties for exceeding the period of authorized stay in the territory of Thailand (the so-called overstay). Now it relies not only fine, but a ban on re-entering the country for several years.

    The duration of the ban in the case of willful violation of tenure:

    • Overstay more than 90 days - the ban on entry for 1 year
    • Overstay more than 1 year - the ban on entry for 3 years
    • Overstay more than 3 years - a ban on entry for 5 years
    • Overstay more than 5 years - a ban on entry for 10 years

    It should be borne in mind that the deadline even as a result of illness or accident is equivalent to the intentional violation.
