Do Indonesians Need a Visa for Thailand?

If you're an Indonesian citizen planning a trip to Thailand, it's essential to be well-informed about the visa regulations to ensure a smooth entry into the Kingdom. This article will cover the key points for Indonesians regarding visas for Thailand and highlight how Siam Legal can assist you throughout this process.

Thailand Tourist Visa Exemption for Short Stays

Indonesian ordinary, diplomatic, or official passports can visit Thailand without a visa for periods not exceeding 30 days.

Here's what the visa exemption includes:

  • Indonesians flying into Thailand can enter without a visa, with the requirement to show proof of onward or return travel within 30 days.
  • For Indonesians entering Thailand through land or sea from neighboring countries, a 30-day stay is permitted under this exemption, with a limit of 2 entries per calendar year.

For a hassle-free visit to Thailand, Indonesians must:

  • Have a passport valid for at least 6 months upon entry.
  • Show proof of departure within 30 days of arrival (extendable up to 60 days for those planning longer stays).
  • Provide evidence of accommodations and sufficient funds for their stay.

Thailand Tourist Visa for Extended Stays

Indonesians looking to stay in Thailand for more than 30 days need to apply for a tourist visa at a Thai Embassy or Consulate before departure.

Additional Information:
While Royal Thai Embassies issue visas, the final entry permission is granted by immigration officers at the point of entry. Entry may be refused if the traveler is deemed to fall under prohibited categories as outlined in the Immigration Act B.E. 2522 (1979).
