I am travelling to Sydney from India by Thai airways in the first week of June and have a layover of 13 hrs at Bangkok airport. I would like to explore the city and wanted to know which visa should I opt for; Visa on arrival which costs 2000 Bahts or is there any other visa?



Indian citizens can use Visa on Arrival for a stay of up to 15 days. The fee for this visa is 2000 THB and must be paid in local currency. Sometimes there is a long queue, and there is a fast track option for an additional fee of 200 THB.

At the time of writing, the visa on arrival fee has been waived

Visa on Arrival fee waiver was first implemented from 15 November 2018 to 13 January 2019. Later, the period of Visa on Arrival fee exemption was extended from 14 January 2019 to 30 April 2019. As the time of this visa fee waiver is coming to the end, the Cabinet just announced that Thailand Visa on Arrival fee exemption will be extended for 6 more months - until 31 October 2019
