How does the Visa on Arrival (VOA) work?

You do not need to apply for visa in your own country. When you arrive at the airport in Thailand you must pay a fee of 2,000 THB. It must be paid in cash and only Thai Baht is accepted. (Fee is subject to change without notice, so it is best to prepare more)

You must also meet the following requirements:

  • If asked, you must provide proof of exit by showing a flight ticket leaving Thailand within 30 days of entry
    • Traveling overland by bus or car (to Myanmar, Laos etc.) is not accepted as proof of exit
  • If asked, you must be able to list a valid accommodation address in Thailand 
  • If asked, you must be able to provide proof of funds of at least 10,000 THB for single travelers, or 20,000 THB per family during your stay in Thailand.

If you do not meet the requirements, you may be denied Visa on Arrival, and thus entry into Thailand.
