- Important information
- Regulations are subject to change without notice. Consular officers reserve the right to request additional documents as deemed necessary. Consular officers assume the right to deny or grant any type of visa to the applicant.
- The visa expiration date is shown on the visa. Depending on the alien’s nationality, visas can be issued for any number of entries, from as little as one entry to as many as multiple (unlimited) entries, for the same purpose of travel.
- This generally means the visa is valid or can be used from the date it is issued until the date it expires, for travel for the same purpose, when the visa is issued for multiple entries.
- This time period from the visa issuance date to visa expiration date as shown on the visa is called visa validity. If you travel frequently as a tourist for example, with a multiple entry visa, you do not have to apply for a new visa each time you want to travel to Thailand.
- The visa validity is the length of time you are permitted to travel to a port-of-entry in Thailand to request permission of the immigration officer to permit you to enter Thailand. The visa does not guarantee entry to Thailand.
- The Expiration Date for the visa should not be confused with the authorized length of your stay in Thailand, given to you by the immigration officer at port-of-entry. The visa expiration date has nothing to do with the authorized length of your stay in Thailand for any given visit.
- Each time you arrive at the port-of-entry, an immigration officer decides whether to allow you to enter and how long you can stay. Only the immigration officer has the authority to permit you to enter Thailand.
