“Riley! What’s the visa situation for Thailand!? I want to stay long-term as a digital digital… what should I do?”

Keep reading and I will explain the best 5 Thailand visa options for long stay. Thailand is totally open now, so what are you waiting for!

Visa-exempt entry on Arrival (VOA) ✈️

  • Gets you 30 days free, just show up.
  • This is what most tourists do.
  • You can easily extend it +30 more days 2x time = 90 days total
  • Extension is 1500 THB / $45 each time
  • After that, travel & come back (visa run).
  • Historically I would use this as an excuse to take a trip to Bali, Vietnam, China, or Japan, then come back whenever I want. The cheaper option is take a bus to Myanmar or Laos then come back. Search for ‘visa run Bangkok / Chiang Mai’, and there are many agencies organizing these ‘border bounces’ via bus.
