Thailand – Visa

Please note that the visa application process may change at any time.

Make sure to get the latest information on the visa regulations directly from the Thai embassy in your home country. Getting a visa to a foreign country should never be taken for granted and cannot be guaranteed by Asia Exchange in any way. Please also refer to our terms and conditions. You can find information about visas on Thailand’s immigration bureau website.

Applying for a student visa for Thailand

To study abroad in Thailand, you need to apply for a student visa before the start of the semester. Please check the latest news and information about visas before applying for a visa at the Royal Thai Embassy website. You can also get the required application forms and more information about the application procedure. A Thai student visa is a Non-Immigrant Visa ED.

Please note: Holding a student visa requires you to take at least three courses in Thailand. However, taking four courses is recommended so that you have solid proof of your studies in Thailand. Your host university in Thailand will also help you with all visa-related matters.

Please note that you cannot apply for the visa with the initial acceptance letter.

It will take at least four working days for the embassy to process your application after bringing it to them. This varies from country to country so consult the Thai embassy or consulate in your own country for more information.

You will receive more information about the student visa after the application period for your study semester has ended.
