Is it possible to apply for the STV in Vientiane in order to go to Thailand ? I have a Swiss passport.

Maybe if you were in Laos now. You cannot enter Laos at this time.

As a matter of fact, I'm in Laos right now.

I suggest you check with the embassy or the consulate about doing the application. I checked on the embassy website and did not find much info about it. http://vientiane.thaiembassy.org/en/

The STV is shown on the certificate of entry application site for Laos. See:https://coethailand.mfa.go.th/

In order to get a STV visa,

what is the difference between low-risk countries and medium-risk countries?

I guess it depends on how long you want to stay but don't forget that at the moment, you can get a 60 day tourist visa (+ possible extension)without jumping through the hoops of the STV. The crazy thing is that at the moment, the 60 day tourist visa is available in all countries, not just low risk ones.  Maybe I should not say 'crazy' - after 18 years of this stuff, maybe I should accept its normal 🤣.

Got a house in Thailand so the longer the best really. Are you saying that the hoops of the STV aren't the same ones as the normal 60 day tourist visa ? What's the difference ?

For the STV it requires health insurance that provides 40k baht of out patient and 400k baht for in patient care.

It allows a 90 day entry that can be extended twice for 90 days.

Info here on Singapore embassy website.

I actually meet all the requirements, STV doesn't seem to be a bad shout in the end. Got a private insurance that covers me way beyond 100k USD. Good to know, i'm planning to move back to Thailand in April at the latest, who knows, maybe it will be easier by then too. Thanks Ubonjoe for being so helpful.
