The Royal Thai government has launched a temporary tourist visa fee exemption scheme and a temporary Visa on Arrival fee reduction scheme to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and Thailand.
Under the first scheme, all applicants applying for a tourist visa (single entry) to Thailand will be exempted from paying the present visa fee of Rs. 2,000 till August 31.
The visa applications can be submitted through VFS Global Services Pvt Ltd (www.vfs-thailand.co.in), according to a press release from the Royal Thai Consulate General.
The fee for Visa on Arrival will be decreased to 1,000 THB from 2,000 THB at the designated immigration checkpoints.
