Citizens of Norway

Do you need a visa for Thailand?

If you're a citizen of Norway planning a trip to Thailand, understanding the visa process is key for hassle-free entry into the country. Here, we'll outline the essential details for obtaining a visa to visit Thailand, and how Siam Legal can assist you throughout the process.

Thailand Tourist Visa Exemption for Short Stays

As a Norwegian passport holder, you can enjoy a visa exemption for short stays of up to 30 days for tourism purposes. Here's what you need to know:

  • The visa exemption applies to Norwegians arriving by airplane, provided they can show proof of onward or return travel within 30 days.
  • Entry via land or sea immigration checkpoints from neighboring countries also allows for a 30-day stay, with a maximum of 2 entries per calendar year.

To ensure a smooth visit, Norwegians must:

  • Have a passport valid for at least 6 months upon entry.
  • Present proof of exit within 30 days of arrival (or 60 days for those seeking extensions).
  • Provide evidence of accommodation and sufficient funds for the duration of their stay.

Thailand Tourist Visa for Extended Stays

Norwegian citizens looking to stay in Thailand beyond 30 days must apply for a tourist visa at a Thai Embassy or Consulate before departure.

Additional Information:
Royal Thai Embassies issue visas, but immigration officers have the authority to permit entry into Thailand. Denial of entry may occur if the immigration officer believes the traveler falls under prohibited categories according to the Immigration Act B.E. 2522 (1979).
