A Video Explaining The Hoops To Jump Through For The Special Tourist Visa

The Special Tourist Visa

The Thai Cabinet has approved in principle a proposal by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports to grant a special tourist visa (STV) for long-staying visitors.

Visitors can stay in the country for 90 days, which can be extended twice, each for a further 90 days. The visa will cost 2,000 baht and the same again for each 90-day extension.

Those are the words from TAT, and it sounds simple, right?

Well, you’d like to think so but #AmazingThailand strikes again and getting your hands on one of these new visas is as complicated as complicated gets.

With all the hoops you have to jump through you might be left with the impression they don’t really want tourists to come just yet.

An infograph was widely shared on Monday that showed the application process for what it is – a nightmare.

Today we now have a video going through all the steps shown on the infograph as if it being on video format is going to make it any easier to understand and foillow.
