Consider moving to Thailand?

Discover the Advantages of Thailand Elite Visas.

What Thailand Elite Program provides?

In comparison to the more traditional permissions required to remain in Thailand on a long-term basis, the Thailand Elite program provides an easy and quick solution. It was created primarily for foreigners looking for a quick and easy application process.

 

Things to know before moving to Thailand

Thai immigration laws are complicated and constantly changing. Before the introduction of the Thailand Elite programs, only the boldest would bravely wade through difficult and opaque immigration laws, sometimes for months, before figuring out how to settle in Thailand or renew their hard-earned initial permission.

The benefits of Thailand Elite Visa Programs

Thailand Elite now provides a fast and transparent path for foreigners. Those that join up for the program aren’t just newcomers. Instead, they have prized “members,” and as such, they receive a variety of benefits to remind them of the honor of being a part of such an exclusive group.

VIP and priority airport services, medical coverage, a 24/7 call center in various languages, personal concierge services, and special discounts to exquisite SPAs, golf courses, retail malls, and activities are just a few of the benefits available to members.

How much does a Thailand Elite visa cost?

Joining the Thailand Elite community does cost money; however, it is a little price to pay compared to other possibilities. Applicants who consider moving to Thailand can simply approach an authorized agent for assistance in applying.

Thailand Elite memberships

Traveling and staying in Thailand has never been easier. Thailand Elite memberships are offered for five, ten, or twenty years. The application can be completed online (regardless of whether the applicant is in or out of Thailand at the time) and simply requires basic paperwork. Thailand Elite members do not need to leave Thailand or renew their visas regularly, which is a significant advantage over other visa kinds.

What are the advantages of Thailand Elite visa?

This program draws a wide range of members, including ex-pats, investors, digital nomads, businesses, retirees, frequent visitors, and families, due to the flexibility and variety of Thailand Elite packages provided.

Thai Elite Easy access

With the 5-year Elite Easy Access scheme, digital nomads and regular travelers can travel freely. The membership cost has increased to THB 600,000, maybe due to its success (previously THB 500,000). If an Elite Easy Access candidate decides to extend his or her stay in Thailand, an extra THB 400,000 can be paid to upgrade to a 20-year membership.

Thai Elite Ultimate Privilege

Businessmen may benefit from the Elite Easy Access program, but in our experience, this group of applicants often finds that the Elite Ultimate Privilege program provides more of the benefits they seek.

The Elite Ultimate Privilege is a 20-year membership that includes luxurious benefits such as limousine service from/to the airport, SPA, golf, and more. In addition, the member can include family members (spouse and minor children) by applying for the Elite Family Premium (for an additional cost of around THB 1 million).

The Thailand Elite is frequently compared to a retirement visa by retirees, although the Thailand Elite is favored for its simplicity and flexibility. It does not necessitate the purchase of medical insurance or the freezing of funds in a Thai bank account. The Elite Maxima Health for 5 years kills two birds with one stone by combining health insurance and a Thailand Elite visa for a total cost of THB 1,500,000.

Some young retirees are deemed too young to qualify for a retirement visa, which is only granted to those over the age of 50. As a result, the Thailand Elite is a genuine 20-year alternative. The Elite Superiority Extension has grown in popularity in recent years, thanks to its reasonable pricing of roughly THB 1 million.

Finally, investors who want to combine a long-term visa with real estate investing can do so by purchasing a property with an Elite Flexible One. This is a five-year Thailand Elite visa that can be obtained in combination with the purchase of the real estate in Bangkok, Hua Hin, or Phuket. This is appealing because the cost of the Thailand Elite visa is already included in the purchasing price.

Other choices exist in the middle. For example:
THB 1,000,000 for ten years of Elite Privilege Access (plus THB 800,000 for each additional family member);
the THB 800,000 Elite Family Excursion for two people (plus THB 300,000 for each additional family member); and
THB 800,000 for a ten-year Elite Family Alternative (plus THB 700,000 per additional family member).

In a nutshell

Thailand Elite program exists to meet the demands of the majority of individuals and families who consider moving to Thailand. An authorized agent will be able to assist clients in determining the optimal scheme for achieving their goals at a reasonable cost.
