Thailand approves new 10 year visas, eases work permit rules for wealthy foreigners, remote workers

The Thai government has approved new 10 year visas and other measures aimed at attracting wealthy investors, retirees, skilled professionals and remote workers

The measures, which were first mooted last year, aim to increase investment into Thailand and boost the economy.

On Tuesday (Jan 18) deputy government spokesperson Rachada Dhnadirek said the measures have been drafted in two stages by the Interior Ministry and the Labour Ministry.

The Interior Ministry will launch a Long Term Residence Visa (LTR), which can also include up to four family members, including children up to the age of 20 years old.
