Elite Visa - Now vs Before Covid


Recommended Posts

Hi

I am thinking to either get the 5 year or 20 year Elite visa (500k vs 1m baht)

 

Before Covid was it possible to stay the full length of the visa (5 or 20 years) without leaving the country? 

 

Or is it only since Covid that you could stay more than on year per entry?

 

To be honest i want to delay getting the vaccine as long as possible as i am worried about the safety of the first vaccines that come out.

 

I think i it goes without saying that we will need proof of vaccination to enter Thailand, in the same way you need yellow fever certificates to enter back into western countries after visiting parts of south america and other places.

 

So really i want a visa that lets me stay as long as possible I am assuming foreigners already in Thailand wont be pushed forward too quickly to get vaccinated.

Read that company is facing loss and demand for elite access is high hence the price hike . I think it will drop back down in couple of years

With this visa there is a way in....

In similar way to SETV.

Non O retirement.

Non O-A, O-X 

Along with other options.

I won't include STV as that's a rubbish option for one country.

No takers, others would reduce the price.

 

BANGKOK -- Thailand plans to raise the price of its bestselling five-year residency permit by 20% in January, after the program dubbed "elite" visas drew record new memberships this year as people sought to stay in the largely coronavirus-free country.

The surge is from Chinese tourists.
