Tourist Visa Exemption

Australian passport holders and nationals from 50 designated countries may travel to Thailand for the purpose of tourism without a visa. They will be permitted to stay for a period not exceeding 30 days on each visit, provided they arrive by plane and have a confirmed ticket out of Thailand (by air, land, or sea) within 30 days. Those entering by land at the immigration checkpoints from neighbouring countries will be allowed to stay for 15 days on each entry. For stays exceeding these durations, purposes other than tourism, or for passport holders not listed a visa is required to travel to Thailand. 

For more information and a list of eligible countries click here.

Note: Passport holders of nations in the G7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, United States)  are allowed to stay for up to 30 days on each entry. Such entry can be made by either air, land or sea.

All passports must be valid for at least 6 months beyond the proposed date of entry into Thailand.


Non-Immigrant Multiple Entry Visa

There are strict requirements regarding the issuance of Multiple Entry Non-Immigrant Visas, which will only be issued on a case by case basis. For further information, please contact us direct to discuss any such application. 


Retirement Visa

Since the Royal Thai Consulate General Melbourne does not issue retirement visas, we are therefore unable to offer any information regarding this visa.

For further information about retirement visas please contact the Royal Thai Embassy in Canberra or the Royal Thai Consulate in Sydney.
