ENTRY, EXIT & VISA REQUIREMENTS
Visit the Royal Thai Embassy website for the most current visa information.
- U.S. citizen tourists entering Thailand for fewer than 30 days do not require a visa.
- We recommend that your passport be valid for at least six months beyond the date of your entry into Thailand to ease entry.
- Thai immigration officials or airline staff may ask for your onward/return ticket.
- Business travelers, U.S. government employees travelling on official business, teachers, retirees, and those planning to stay longer than 30 days should check with the Royal Thai Embassy about visa requirements.
- If you overstay your visa, you will be fined. Depending on the length of overstay, you may also be arrested, detained, deported at your own expense, and banned from re-entering Thailand.
We strongly recommend that you carry a copy of your U.S. passport identification page and current Thai visa to help avoid detention by the Thai immigration police.
Thailand’s entry/exit information is subject to change without notice. For the most current information, please see the list of Thai embassies and consulates worldwide and The Royal Thai Police Immigration Bureau.
You can find detailed information on vaccinations and other health precautions on the CDC website.
