Our legal team recently shared our insights on Thailand introducing a new 10-year Long-Term Resident Visa at a special SwissThai Chamber of Commerce (STCC) ‘Briefing on Long-Term Resident (LTR) Visa’. See our guide on the Long-Term Resident Visa (LTR).
The event provided an opportunity to explore LTR visas related to the multiple benefits for holders, including the extendable 10 years option, and answer questions from the audience. Our team also explored who can apply and how to submit the application.
The audience asked several questions based on their own experiences of planning or trying to pursue a visa in Thailand. The event was a success, drawing attention to the importance of the rule of regulation in LTR visas in Thailand.

We always recommend contacting us as far in advance of making your move as you can; this is particularly the case during the covid crisis. We will advise you on what is needed to apply for the required document or what you have to prepare before travelling to Thailand.

Even if you’re legally married to a Thai citizen, to qualify for a marriage visa in Thailand, you’re going to need to prove you’re financially able to support yourself and your spouse. We can help.
