Thailand Privilege Visa
DIAMOND Membership

With the 20-year membership packages now only accessible via invitation - the DIAMOND membership is the closest applicants are going to get to a membership with the longest validity.

Part of the launch of Thailand Privilege memberships, the 15-year DIAMOND package leads to 15 years of stay within Thailand. This membership costs 2.5 million baht and is packed with 55 privilege points a year, a deluxe alternative to the previous Thailand Elite visas.

While far from a start-up visa, the benefits earned through this membership justifies the price. Compared to both past and present packages, the DIAMOND membership delegates the largest exclusive benefits and quality-of-life perks to its members. Not present with the Thailand Elite packages, the privilege point system was introduced alongside the Thailand Privilege overhaul, allowing for greater freedom of choice in picking which privileges to use. With 55 points, it’s possible for members to use all privileges at their disposal.

Family members can also be added to the membership, allowing them to enjoy the same exclusive benefits and privileges as the core applicant, at only 1.5 million baht.

Thailand Privilege memberships are still only considered a tourist visa program. Therefore, applicants will not be able to work in Thailand or apply for work permits. Despite this restriction, members can still enjoy flying in and out of Thailand anytime for at least 15 years, provided their visa is still valid. For simply touring the country and trying to experience all the activities, vistas, and services that Thailand has to offer, or to judge it in terms of residency and as a tourist destination; having a Thailand Privilege membership is well worth your investment.

  1. Are there any special redemption privileges for this membership?
Holding a DIAMOND membership grants you the opportunity to redeem your 55 privilege points for free domestic flights via Bangkok Airways in a way that makes everything all the more convenient for you.
