Expats in Thailand turning to the Elite Card to avoid visa hassles - Bloomberg

Spring News in reporting the Bloomberg story said that five years of an Elite card costs 470,000 baht, 10 years 932,000 baht and 20 years 1.87 million.

I thought it was 5 years for 500,000 baht, 20 years for 1,000,000 or 2,000,000 Baht depending on the golf and spa addition, and the 10 years was for a relative/family version and was 1 mil baht for each member.  Maybe I am wrong and they are using currency exchange rates for the story.

1,900 baht Vs 470,000 for 5 years, I have money, can afford to get one no problem, but who wants to pay 25,000% extra, hmmm, maybe some with more zeros in their account but less brain cells up top, each to their own, of course 🙂

 

 

You modest little fellow you! 😉🤭

If the Elite Visa is all someone qualifies for and there is the need or want to visit/stay in The Kingdom often/long-term, and the funds are available, I guess it's the way to go.

Only if the situation changes for family or married will I consider it. I wonder if Bloomberg is more or less looking at the Chinese buying them up. Don’t you still need health Thai insurance with this?

TAT, who runs this scam, claims that you will get a 5, 10, or 20 year visa. Nonsense! Only one-year and then apply for another year extension.
