In September 2023, the Thailand Privilege Card Company Limited announced the new PLATINUM membership to the public. Thailand Privilege Card, formerly known as Thailand Elite, intended this 10-year membership as an ideal choice for foreigners looking to take their journey throughout the Land of Smiles beyond 5 years or to turn Thailand into a second home.
At only 1.5 million Baht, members are granted access to even more benefits and privileges compared to the previous Thailand Elite memberships. Newer privileges are meticulously designed to enhance one’s enjoyment of Thailand and all its activities and landmarks. With the new privilege points system, members will no longer find themselves restricted and can spend points on any available privileges. Like the Elite Visa, applying is more streamlined compared to other visas, with no additional fees or re-entry permits, making travel more convenient.
Primary applicants are also given the opportunity to invite their family members at 1 million baht per applicant, granting them company in Thailand to enjoy their time with; no longer are specific family packages such as the Elite Family Alternative needed.
Given the deadline in September has passed, Thailand Privilege memberships have been elevated to entice those missing the already renowned Thailand Elite Visas. The PLATINUM membership aims to illuminate your view of Thailand for the best and with enough time, perhaps it would influence you to establish residency in Thailand sometime in the future.
Thailand Privilege's PLATINUM Membership will be released on October 1, 2023.
Validity: 10 years
Cost: 1.5 million Baht (approximately $41,500 USD)
Additional cost for family members: 1 million Baht (approximately $27,600 USD)
Privilege Points: 35 points per year
With various new benefits added to the mix, the Thailand Privilege PLATINUM Membership is considered an upgrade over not only the Thailand Privilege GOLD Membership, but even the previous Elite Privilege Access Membership, the Elite Family Alternative Membership, and the Elite Superiority Extension Membership. While the old Thailand Elite Visa packages have been rendered obsolete after mid-September, this new membership rewards enough additional privileges to justify the investment.
