Citizens of Singapore

Do you need a visa for Thailand?

If you're a citizen of Singapore planning a trip to Thailand, understanding the visa process is key for hassle-free entry into the country. Here, we'll outline the essential details for obtaining a visa to visit Thailand, and how Siam Legal can assist you throughout the process.

Thailand Tourist Visa Exemption for Short Stays

Singapore ordinary passport holders enjoy the benefit of a tourist visa exemption scheme for visiting Thailand. Additionally, due to bilateral agreements between Thailand and Singapore, those with diplomatic or official passports from Singapore can visit Thailand without a visa for periods not exceeding 30 days.

Here's a brief overview of what this means for Singaporeans:

  • The visa exemption allows Singapore citizens flying into Thailand to enter without a visa, on the condition they can show proof of onward or return travel within 30 days.
  • For Singaporeans entering Thailand via land or sea from neighboring countries, a 30-day stay is permitted under this exemption, subject to a limit of 2 entries per calendar year.

For a smooth visit to Thailand, Singaporeans must:

  • Possess a passport that remains valid for at least 6 months upon entry.
  • Show proof of departure within 30 days of arrival (this period can be extended to 60 days for those seeking to stay longer).
  • Provide evidence of accommodations and sufficient funds for the stay's duration.

Thailand Visas for Extended Stays

Citizens of Singapore looking to stay in Thailand beyond 30 days must apply for a tourist visa at a Thai Embassy or Consulate before departure.

Additional Information:
Royal Thai Embassies issue visas, but immigration officers have the authority to permit entry into Thailand. Denial of entry may occur if the immigration officer believes the traveler falls under prohibited categories according to the Immigration Act B.E. 2522 (1979).
