Thailand has now introduced E- Visa for 21 nationalities including India from February 14th of 2019.
Immigrants can now have a hassle free time avoiding long standing queue at the spot. The cost for the On Arrival visa is about 2000 Bhat (4500 INR). VFS did not state what the charges for the eVoA will be and if people will need to pay more for skipping long immigration queues on to get the visa-on-arrival. VFS said a new “express” eVoA service is also available for approval within 24 hours. Applications will need to be submitted on thailandevoa.vfsevisa.com or at VFS Global visa application centres across the globe.
” In line with the government of Thailand’s initiative to promote tourism, the Immigration Bureau of Thailand has partnered with VFS Global to offer the new eVisa On Arrival (eVOA) service that will enable a faster and more convenient arrival process for travellers from 21 countries like India, China, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine.
Travellers who are eligible to use the online eVoA service provided by VFS Global will receive their travel authorisation from the Immigration Bureau of Thailand prior to their departure from their country of origin. The eVoA service will be available as of February 14, 2019, on http://thailandevoa.vfsevisa.com ,” VFS said in a statement.
