The Thai Government has recently created a new tourist visa with a validity of 6 months. The decision is great news for villa owners and tourists interested in long-term rentals on our beautiful island. It should also boost tourism in Thailand and encourage more people to buy properties and rent villas.
The price for this new visa will be 1000 THB for a single entry visa and 5000 THB for a multiple one. Please note that the arrival visa that used to allow you to stay for a month has now been reduced to 15 days, making the new visa a good opportunity if you are planning on staying for more than two weeks in Koh Samui.
