Thailand waives tourist visas for Russia, India, and Taiwan


From 1 November 2023 to 30 April 2024 for Russian tourists, and from 10 November 2023 until 10 May 2024 for Indian and Taiwanese tourists.

Thailand is extending a temporary visa exemption for tourists from Russia, India, and Taiwan as part of the government’s quick-win policy to boost tourism during the high season.

Until 30 April 2024, holders of Russian passports or travel documents will be entitled to a tourist visa exemption for a 90-day stay in Thailand, up from the original 30 days.

Indian and Taiwanese citizens will be granted a temporary visa exemption for a 30-day stay for tourism purposes in Thailand, effective from 10 November 2023 until 10 May 2024.

The latest stimulus visa schemes for tourists from Russia, India and Taiwan followed the temporary tourist visa exemption implemented for tourists from China and Kazakhstan, effective from 25 September 2023 to 29 February 2024.
