Where Can Thai People Go Without Visa?

163 posts in this topic

ID: 1   Posted (edited)

Hi Everyone. This is my first post on the website. I have recently met a girl whilst on holiday in Samui. I have been back since to spend another couple of weeks with her. I like thailand but would like to explore other places around the world and take her with me. Where can she go without getting a visa. I just cant be doing with all the paper work of taking her to europe, aus etc. I had a uk visitor application declined end of august (didn't know enough, enough said!) I now realise its going to be a year or so and loads of evidence of a relationship before she comes here. Not a problem with me, I need some holidays! I read somewhere they can go all over asia? south africa? how correct is this (visa on arrival would be fine)

The countries or regions that grant visa-free or visa-on-arrival to personal Thailand passport holders are:

Cambodia (Visa on arrival - tourist for $20, business for $25)

No visa required for a Thai national entering Cambodia.

EDIT: Actually Thais get 14 day no visa entry.

This is a great list. Thanks. is this worthy of pinning? because to manually search for a list on visa sites is not so easy. This does have it all in one place and then the onus is on the traveller to further check this is still valid. Great place to start anyway

hmmmmmmmmm, I recall my TGF required to get the V.O.A flying in the Siem Reap airport - ie. I had to pay 2*$20.

TGF also informs me that by road it's 1000THB for entry (visa?)

As far as I know there is now an agreement between ASEAN countries with regard to visa free travel. Cambodia included.

A slightly different take on this - can a Thai go to any of the bordering countries with ID card only, no passport? I think a Thai used to be able to go across the Mae Sai crossing into Myanmar with ID card only... but how about Cambodia, for example?

Just curious, cos I'm doing a trip to Phnom Penh next Friday and the gf has just lost her passport...

No visa required for Thais visiting Taiwan if they have a valid US, UK, Canadian, or Japanese visa in their passport. Just submit the info online and print out before traveling.

Excluding the Asian countries on the list, SA is the only decent, non third world place worth visiting unless you can afford the presumably massive airfares to travel to South America

What immigration admin costs? The visa fees would cover those, as well as a healthy profit.
