Thailand Visa Application

Citizens of Greece

Are you dreaming of a trip to Thailand from Greece? Thailand provides a range of visas tailored to various needs, guaranteeing a smooth and delightful stay in the Land of Smiles. Let's dive into the visa options available to you.

Thailand Tourist Visa Exemption for Short Stays

Greek citizens are fortunate to benefit from a visa exemption for short stays in Thailand, making tourism trips more accessible. Here are the details:

  • Visa exemption is granted to Greek citizens arriving by air, provided they have proof of onward or return travel within 30 days.
  • For those entering via land or sea from neighboring countries, a 30-day stay is permitted, with a limit of 2 entries per calendar year.

To ensure a hassle-free visit, Greek travelers must:

  • Possess a passport with a minimum validity of 6 months upon entry.
  • Show proof of intended departure within 30 days of arrival (this can be extended to 60 days for those seeking an extension).
  • Provide evidence of accommodation and sufficient funds for the duration of their stay.

Thailand Tourist Visa for Extended Stays

Greek nationals intending to stay in Thailand for more than 30 days must apply for a tourist visa at a Thai Embassy or Consulate before departure.

Thailand and Greece Bilateral Agreement

Greek nationals holding Diplomatic or Official passports can enjoy visa-exempt entry into Thailand for periods not exceeding 90 days. This facilitates various types of visits, including tourism, business, or official duties, ensuring smooth travel for Greek diplomatic and official personnel. For stays extending beyond 90 days, an appropriate visa is required.

Key Points to Remember

The decision to allow entry ultimately lies with the immigration officers at your point of entry into Thailand. Even with a valid visa, entry can be denied based on the Immigration Act B.E. 2522 (1979).

For citizens of Greece considering travel or relocation to Thailand, being well-informed about available visa options is essential to facilitate a smooth journey. Professional services, such as Siam Legal, can offer invaluable support, ensuring an efficient and straightforward process from start to finish.

Siam Legal International offers services on the following types of visa to citizens of Greece:
90-day Non-Immigrant Visa

Greek citizens with specific intentions such as education, business ventures, family visits, official duties, or religious activities can opt for the 90-day Non-Immigrant Visa. This single-entry visa permits a 90-day stay and can serve as a gateway for acquiring a work permit or initiating bank account procedures in Thailand.

1-Year Non-Immigrant Visa

Tailored for Greek citizens planning prolonged stays, the 1-Year Non-Immigrant Visa allows multiple entries with a maximum stay of 90 days per entry. However, it necessitates a border run every 90 days for a fresh stamp. This visa supports various activities and streamlines the process of obtaining work permits and opening bank accounts, offering the flexibility to extend the stay on the same visa.

Thailand Business Visa

Greek entrepreneurs or job seekers can kickstart their professional endeavors in Thailand with the Non-Immigrant B Visa. Beginning with a 90-day single-entry visa, it can be extended to a 1-year multiple-entry visa upon securing a work permit, sponsored by a Thai company.

Thailand Marriage Visa

For Greek citizens married to Thai nationals, the Thailand Marriage Visa facilitates residency in Thailand. Starting with 90 days, this visa can be extended to a year and renewed annually, supporting both personal and professional needs in international marriages.

Thailand Retirement Visa

Greek citizens aged 50 and above contemplating retirement in Thailand can opt for the Retirement Visa. This visa mandates proof of financial stability and offers an initial 90-day stay, extendable to one year, catering to retirees without employment aspirations.

Thailand Elite Visa

An exclusive opportunity for long-term residency ranging from 5 to 20 years, the Thailand Elite Visa offers a seamless immigration process, exemption from 90-day reporting, and access to premium privileges. It's an excellent choice for Greek citizens seeking an extended stay in Thailand. Learn more:
