Thailand Privilege Visa
RESERVE Membership

Back when Thailand Privilege was known as Thailand Elite, their 20-year Thai Elite membership packages were immensely popular, namely the Elite Superiority Extension which offered 20 years worth of respite in Thailand at only 1 million THB. Despite the widespread popularity, the 20-year membership came to a close on September 15, 2023.

The new Thailand Privilege program altered and influenced many changes.

Speaking from a conceptual standpoint, there is no 20-year membership for the Thailand Privilege packages. Well, one does exist, however, applicants cannot apply for it as they could with previous packages, it is instead granted solely by invitation. The invitation to apply would only be handed over to a limited pool of around only 100 people.

This is known as the fabled RESERVE membership, by far the most expensive option in Thailand Privilege history and only available to a limited number of applicants. Its high cost of 5 million THB and 120 privilege points being handed over every year made it the most opulent package. But if rewarded with that golden ticket, you can apply and are one step away from being an official RESERVE member.

Brand new additions

The RESERVE membership is only granted to a limited number of applicants via invitation given its extensive range of top-of-the-line privileges. Being the lucky applicant to receive such an invitation would net you with privileges so vast and so “elite” that it treats you almost like a celebrity in Thailand. Adding on to this are benefits and perks that weren’t even available in previous memberships before the September 15 deadline.

Privilege Points System

  • This new system allows for applicants to be able to freely choose which privileges to use without feeling boxed in with a select number.
  • RESERVE members earn an outstanding 120 privilege points on an annual basis and with such a number, applicants can enjoy all the privileges on offer.
  • Year after year, these 120 points are reset, giving applicants a chance to spend on other privileges.

Additional benefits not present in all other packages, both old and new

  • Lifetime stay: Members are able to stay even beyond 20 years. After 20 years, members will receive a 5-year visa that can be constantly renewed for another 5 years at an adjusted discount.
