Thailand Privilege Visa
GOLD Membership

Introducing the Thailand Privilege Gold membership, guaranteeing members a long-term visa alongside new perks. Coupled with this is a more robust scheme known as the privilege points system, allowing members free reign to explore all available privileges.

The GOLD Membership is an entry-level membership acting almost like a start-up package. This membership rewards a 5-year visa at only 900,000 THB. Whether looking to test out Thailand’s water or curious about what all the hype is about, Thailand Privilege's GOLD Membership accommodates you the same way a concierge supports their guests with their services. It's perfect for multiple travellers simply looking to find an exquisite place to relax within Southeast Asia, but aren't too keen on staying in Thailand for very long periods of time. The privilege points system also enables members to acquire privileges inaccessible to a 5-year Thai Elite visa, such as free domestic flights and spa treatments.

Given its luxurious nature, there is something in these for pretty much anyone looking to settle in Thailand. As a visa is essential for many, a membership that entitles you to a 5-year stay makes it the crème de la crème of Thailand tourist visas.

So while September was the deadline for new applicants to apply for the old Thailand Elite visa, these new memberships are still an exceptional stand-in.

Applicants eager to apply and obtain access to the new privilege points scheme and other subsequent Thailand Privilege services will be able to submit their application on October 1, 2023.
