The Thai Cabinet has resolved to extend the visa-free period for Indian and Taiwanese tourists.

  • Effective Period: The extension is effective from May 11 to November 11, 2024, spanning a period of 6 months.
  • Eligibility: Passport holders or individuals with valid documents from India and Taiwan, visiting Thailand for tourism purposes, are entitled to a visa-free stay of up to 30 days.
  • Additional Information: The Immigration Bureau has clarified that visa holders can apply for a 30-day extension.
