Thailand is set to introduce its new multiple entry visa regulations for tourists from 13th November 2015 to facilitate the travels of tourists who wish to enter Thailand multiple times, an MFA spokesman announced.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Spokesman Sek Wannamethee, disclosed that visitors to Thailand will be able to apply for a Multiple Entry Tourist Visa (METV) from 13th November 2015, or 60 days after this matter was announced in the government gazette.

The new multiple entry visa will be valid for 6 months after the date of issue, and is available at a fee of 5,000 baht. Bearers of this visa will be able to stay in Thailand for no longer than 60 days per visit for tourism purpose.

Persons of all nationalities can apply for the visa at Royal Thai Embassies or Royal Thai Consulates-General worldwide.

The issuance of the multiple entry visa for tourists is a measure to help boost the nation’s tourism industry in order to generate more income, and to support the realization of the ASEAN Community, the MFA spokesman says.
