Thailand is one of the most sought-after destinations in Southeast Asia. The country has a population of 68 million people who are well known for their friendly disposition, which has resulted in Thailand often being referred to as the ‘Land of Smiles’.
Thailand offers an affordable, yet exceptionally high standard of living. The country has made significant socio-economic progress over the last four decades, moving from a low-income to an upper-income country in less than a generation. Besides being rich in agriculture, its industrial production facilities in automobiles, electronics, healthcare, and jewelry are global pioneers.
The country has been widely cited as a development success story with sustained strong growth and impressive poverty reduction. Thailand offers residence in a country that is safe and secure.
In Thailand, residents (those residing in the country for more than 180 days) are subject to tax only on income earned from sources within Thailand as well as on any portion of income from foreign sources that is remitted to Thailand in the same year in which it is earned. Therefore, Thailand’s tax regime is considered very beneficial, similar to that of Hong Kong and Singapore, for individuals who are resident in Thailand and do not generate significant income in the country.
The Thailand Elite Residence Program allows you to secure the right to live in Thailand for up to 20 years when you obtain a privilege entry visa, all while enjoying beautiful natural attractions, world-class shopping, and idyllic island getaways.
With a selection of additional complimentary luxury services and benefits, successful applicants will receive advice and assistance when dealing with government agencies, easy access through border control and immigration procedures, private transfer services, and complimentary health check-ups at leading hospitals with our various elite programs.
The Southeast Asian jewel of Thailand offers wealthy individuals and families residence in a country that is safe and secure, with an affordable yet exceptionally high standard of living. Residents (those residing in the country for more than 180 days) are subject to tax only on income earned from sources within the country as well as on any portion of income from foreign sources that is remitted to Thailand in the same year in which it is earned. For this reason, Thailand’s tax regime is considered highly beneficial for individuals who are resident in Thailand and do not generate significant income in the country.
To receive the Thailand Elite privilege entry visa, applicants must fulfil the requirements of the Thailand Elite Residence Program, an exclusive program offered by Thailand Privilege Card Company Limited (TPC). TPC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, under the Ministry of Tourism and Sports. The Thailand Elite Residence Program is the first of its kind worldwide — the program allows foreign nationals the privilege to live in Thailand for up to 20 years, depending on the residence option chosen. There are seven diverse program options to choose from. Residence options start from THB 500,000 (approximately USD 16,000) for the five-year Elite Easy Access option while the long-term residence visas range from THB 1 million (approximately USD 31,000) for the 10-year Elite Privilege Access option to THB 2.14 million (approximately USD 68,000) for the 20-year Elite Ultimate Privilege option.
Successful applicants of the Thailand Elite Residence Program can reside or stay in Thailand for as long as they wish depending on the validity of their chosen package — five, ten, or 20 years. The only limitation is a requirement to inform TPC when reaching a continuous 90-day length of stay in the country. The Thailand Elite Official Application Portal makes the application process quick and simple, allowing you to apply and track your progress online. Complimentary assistance with applications is available upon request, and residence visas can be approved within four months.
