Thailand Launches New E-Visa for Travelers

International travelers arriving in Thailand will no longer have to deal with long immigration queues. The Land of Smiles recently launched E-Visa Thailand (or E-VoA) which is a fast-entry online visa system that won’t require filled-out application forms and additional paper documents.

  • Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK)
  • Bangkok Don Mueang International Airport (DMK)
  • Phuket International Airport (HKT)

This breakthrough aims to promote tourism, keeping the number of tourists on a rise. Thailand’s Chief of Immigration Police Surachate Hakparn said,

“We are proud to offer a new age digital solution which will enhance the overall experience for the modern-day traveler who seeks to visit Thailand from 21 countries across the globe.”

E-VoA is available for the citizens of the following countries:

  • Andorra
  • Bhutan
