From 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023, travellers from select countries and regions are entitled to stay for a whopping 45 days without the need to apply for an advanced visa.

The current maximum length of stay at one time stands at 30 days. But during the six-month period, that will be extended to 45 days.

According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the 64 countries exempted from applying for a visa can enjoy the 45 days per stay.

This decision was made by Thai authorities in a bid to ramp up tourism recovery and attract more international travellers. Thailand had exceeded one million monthly arrivals in July for the first time since the pandemic and now the Thai government wants to attract 10 million more travellers by end-2022.
