Becoming a member of Thailand Elite will grant you a long-term visa (Privilege Entry Visa PE) that allows you to stay in the country for 5, 10, or 20 years depending on your package choice in exchange for membership fees. There are six different packages to choose from.
The visa affixation process can be done at a Thai Embassy or consulate in your home country, or in Thailand.
Easy Access Membership
Elite offers an extensive suite of visa and immigration services that provide its members with a full range of travel, lifestyle and business perks. This includes 24/7 concierge services, limousine and airport service, VIP immigration fast track in Thailand’s major international airports and a personal Elite liaison to help members through the 90-day reporting process that is required by Thai Immigration for those on a Privilege Entry Visa.
Membership fees depend on the package chosen, and can be paid online or via bank transfer. Once the application has been approved, members will receive a letter with their membership ID and instructions for receiving their Privilege Entry Visa.
Please note that the current Elite Visa packages will be replaced with new offerings on October 1, 2023, and will carry a 50 percent price surge! Those who want to take advantage of the current discounted packages should submit their applications before September 15, 2023.
Elite Family Excursion Membership
Often referred to as the Family Premium package, this membership is designed for families who want to live in Thailand. It includes a five-year multiple entry visa for the core member and their dependents, as well as immigration assistance such as waiver of the 90 day report, expedited support with obtaining a driver’s license and opening bank accounts, and more.
In addition, members receive access to exclusive privileges such as discounted rates on accommodations and leisure activities, free spa treatments, and a discount shopping card. A concierge service is also available to help with daily life and planning.
Applying for a Thailand privilege visa is a simple process that can be made even easier with the help of a registered agent. A professional will be able to provide one-on-one service from start to finish, and will keep clients updated on any progress or requirements. Once the application is complete, a thorough verification process begins. This ensures that all eligibility requirements are met before the visa is issued.
Elite Privilege Access Membership
The Elite Privilege Access visa program is ideal for families that want to enjoy a premium lifestyle in Thailand. It includes a 10-year visa and exclusive benefits such as private concierge services, airport limousine transfers, golf and spa services, and special discounts on hotel rooms, duty-free shops, hospitals, and restaurants.
Unlike the Easy Access Membership, the Elite Privilege Access requires an extensive background check. It is also suitable for entrepreneurs, aspiring business owners, investors, and future retirees who want to make Thailand their home. The Elite Privilege Access package can also be extended to immediate family members for a discounted fee.
Applicants can apply for the visa from any country in the world, working with an agent that will assist them with the application process. The agent will also help them find accommodation and make reservations. Other perks include VIP airport service, concierge services, expedited immigration and passport control processing, and airport lounge access. They will also receive a 24/7 member contact center to handle any needs or emergencies.
Elite Ultimate Privilege Membership
Many people come to Thailand because they have tasted the unique food, a culture steeped in history and long warm beaches and realize that it is a place where they want to return year after year. Those who want to make this a reality should consider the Elite Ultimate Privilege Visa. This visa has a lower initial fee than other visas and is payable upon approval. It also includes complimentary short and long-haul transfer service 18 times per year, a free annual health check and discounts at leading department stores and shopping malls, hotels, golf courses and spas.
In addition to these services, the Elite Ultimate Privilege package offers an immigration liaison that expedites the completion of 90-day reporting at local Thai immigration offices and facilitates business networking opportunities. In addition, the Thailand Elite team provides assistance with obtaining a driver’s license and opening bank accounts. Upgrading from the Easy Access membership to this visa can be done at any time before the existing visa expires.
