Thai Embassy announces new visa measures: Finalisation of legal procedures underway

June 06, Colombo (LNW): There are plans underway to implement new visa measures, including exemptions for certain countries, such as Sri Lanka, in the near future, the Embassy of Thailand in Sri Lanka disclosed.

Currently, applicants can still lodge visa applications at the Embassy, with the standard processing time being two working days (applications submitted on Monday typically yield results by Wednesday), according to the Embassy.

In a recent announcement, the Embassy outlined that Thailand is in the process of finalising the legal procedures for the new visa measures, with the effective date yet to be confirmed.

Under the upcoming regulations, the Thailand Embassy will introduce three types of visas: the Destination Thailand Visa (DTV), Visa Exemption (60 days), and Visa on Arrival (VoA).

Among these measures, Sri Lanka is included in the list of countries granted visa exemptions for visits to Thailand, particularly for tourism and short-term business purposes, for a duration not exceeding 60 days.
