Thailand Privilege

Your path to enjoy all that the Kingdom offers for 5, 10, or 15 years

What is the Thailand Privilege program?

Baan Thai TPC Agent Certify (5)

Thailand Privilege offers 5-, 10- or 15-year visas along with points toward concierge services focused on your well-being. With it, you can come and go as you please with VIP assistance, fast track through immigration, and luxury airport transfers. And, if you’re lucky enough to work remotely from paradise, feel free to open up that laptop.

While the Thailand Privilege application process is easier than other long-stay Thai visas, you may still face challenges with Immigration depending on your Thai visa or travel history. We are an immigration law firm that can help you navigate the application approval process with Thai Immigration, and at no cost to you.

Membership levels

Thailand Privilege offers three packages:

Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. A limited Reserve package is also offered by invitation only. The key differences between the levels are length of stay, cost, and points awarded.

The point system works like a frequent flyer, premium credit card, or hotel reward program. The more points you have, the more benefits you can enjoy. Points renew each year but cannot be carried over to the following year. You can use them to enhance your enjoyment and well-being, including to book concert tickets, spa packages, golf, wealth management programs, and more.

Yes, there is an application fee of 50,000 Baht (inclusive of value-added tax). Payment can be made through direct deposit or bank transfer. Credit card payments will not be accepted.

The fee is deductible from the membership fee upon immigration approval. The application fee may be refunded if the application is not approved.

Anywhere from four weeks to three months depending on your background, nationality, and visa history in Thailand.

While the Thailand Privilege program is administered by the Tourist Authority of Thailand, the actual visa is issued by the Bureau of Immigration.

It’s usually because of the travel history or background of the applicant. If you have a record of overstays, a particular visa history in Thailand (such as a volunteer or education visa), or experienced bankruptcy, your application may be more likely to get rejected.

The points award program provides a way to redeem rewards or benefits within the Thailand Privilege program. These benefits can include free health checkups, airport lounge access, tours, and more. The program works similarly to frequent flyer, premium credit card, or hotel reward programs where a specific number of points enables you to claim a free flight, hotel booking, or other award. Points are awarded annually and cannot be carried over from year to year.

Working for a company located in Thailand is strictly forbidden on the Thailand Privilege visa. However, you are allowed to work remotely from Thailand for companies or clients located abroad in the UK, US, EU, and Australia.

As it offers no path to citizenship and work options are limited, Thailand Privilege isn’t suited for those interested in immigrating to or starting a business in the Kingdom. Ultimately, which long-stay option you choose depends on your goals, budget, tolerance for completing immigration requirements, and how you see Thailand fitting into your long-term future. If you’re unsure which visa is right for you, book a free consultation to talk with one of our immigration experts.
