Should I apply for an e-visa Thailand and when do I need an e-visa Thailand?

Dutch people who plan to travel to Thailand and stay longer than 30 days in the country should apply for an e-visa Thailand. This applies to both tourist and business travelers. Children and babies also need their own e-visa, which will be inserted into the passport by an employee of the embassy of Thailand before the trip.

If the stay is shorter than 30 days, you can obtain a visa for Thailand on arrival. However, you may encounter long queues and cumbersome procedures. By ordering an e-visa in advance at Traveldocs, you save yourself the trouble. We will take care of the visa procedure completely online for you. Not sure whether you need a visa for Thailand? Please contact us for tailored advice. Our visa experts can advise you on the right type of visa for your trip.

What is an electronic e-visa to Thailand exactly?

If you, as a Dutch person, want to go to Thailand for a holiday or business trip, you should apply for an e-visa Thailand before you enter the country. The visa is a digital travel authorization, which is issued by the Thai government and can be applied for online. With this e-visa Thailand you have permission to enter the territory of Thailand. This e-visa is issued by the Embassy of Thailand in The Hague. The Consulate-General of Thailand in Amsterdam will no longer issue visas for Thailand as of 28 May 2021 and the Thai Embassy in The Hague stopped issuing regular, paper visas as of 8 November 2021.

On arrival your visa Thailand will be checked by the local immigration officers. This happens at the airports or border crossings. In some cases, your passport control will already take place upon departure from the Netherlands.

Our staff will work professionally to ensure that your visa application for Thailand is presented flawlessly at the Thai embassy, so you can be well prepared and have peace of mind when you travel.

Visa on Arrival

Upon arrival in Thailand you can obtain the Visa on Arrival. This visa allows you to stay in the country for up to 30 days. Most tourists apply for a tourist visa to Thailand in order to avoid long queues when applying for or extending their Visa on Arrival. This tourist visa allows you to stay in the country for 60 days and, if you wish, you can extend this locally by another 30 days. This also applies to business travellers who are visiting for a short time (meeting, work meeting etc., as long as it does not involve paid employment in Thailand).

You can also change this visa type locally to a non-immigrant visa or choose to extend your Thailand visa.

ATTENTION: Is your stay in Thailand only 30 days or shorter, but you still have to submit documents to us in order to present your Visa Thailand at the Thai Embassy? Then Traveldocs will apply for your online visa on your behalf. Despite the option to travel visa free, you can still apply for an online visa before departure. This is usually the case when, for example, your airline does not allow you to check in without a visa. We therefore assume that the applicant is aware of the conditions and options regarding visa-free travel upon receipt of the documents and still wishes to proceed with the application.

Is it possible to apply for a visa Thailand in person at the embassy?

As of 22 November 2021, an electronic visa has been launched for Dutch and Belgian passport holders. This visa can be applied for online and will be issued by mail. You do not and can no longer physically go to the embassy with your passport and documents.

On our website you can initiate the application for an online tourist or business visa for Thailand. We will take care of this process for you and apply online. After approval, the visa will be sent to you by email.

You will receive an e-mail with detailed information and required documents from us after the application has been posted on the website.

How can I apply for an online e-visa Thailand?

To be able to apply for an online visa Thailand, you need to provide a digital file with the correct documents, together with a copy of your passport and a digital, official passport photo. Often this can go wrong, because the Thai government wants the file to be perfectly in order. If this is not the case, the visa may be refused. Therefore it is important that you submit your application correctly the first time. On our website you can see for each online visa what is required and to which conditions it must comply. We also explain what you need to pay extra attention to. You will also receive the application form for the visa, which is filled out in advance. This way you can be sure that all the information is correct.

Please note that the embassy is at all times free to request additional documents for your application or to reject it without providing any explanation nor reason.

Processing time, visa validity and costs of the visa Thailand

The cost of the online e-visa Thailand varies according to the visa and processing time. A normal application often takes only 3-7 working days. An urgent procedure can also be completed in 2-4 working days.

However, the embassy reserves the right to take longer to assess your application than the stated average processing time.

Cost of 60-day eVisa Thailand and validity

  • The tourist visa is valid for 90 days after issue. Within this period you must enter Thailand. This tourist visa for Thailand offers you 1 entry and 60 days stay in Thailand. This 60 day visa Thailand costs € 84,95 per person and can easily be ordered online via our website.
  • The Business Visa is – just like the Tourist Visa – valid for 90 days after issuance and offers you 1 entry and 60 days stay in Thailand. This business visa for Thailand is available from € 121.95 per person and can be applied for online.
    These costs for the 60 day e-visa Thailand include processing fees, consular fees, transaction fees and VAT.

Would you like to have information and/or documents picked up or delivered to your home? If so, you will be charged an additional fee. Information about fees and charges can be found on the page Rates.

How long is the online visa Thailand valid?

The tourist and business e-visa Thailand is valid for 3 months upon issue. From that moment on, you have 3 months to enter Thailand. As soon as you enter the country, the 60-day period starts. Are you planning to stay longer in the country? Then you have to extend your visa locally in Thailand or travel out of the country and get a visa again (at the new arrival in Thailand or not). Going for a different type of visa? Then it might be that this one has a longer validity, in most cases up to 1 year or more (e.g. when applying for a Non-Immigrant visa for Thailand). How long the visa is valid, how long the stay is maximally allowed and how often you can extend the visa locally, depends on the type of visa. Do you wish to stay longer than 90 consecutive days in Thailand or do you not know which visa to apply for? Please contact us for tailor-made advice.
