Foreign property owners now allowed to return to Thailand

Foreign property owners now allowed to return to Thailand

Foreigners who own property in Thailand have been added to the group of non-Thais who are now able to apply to return to the country.

 

But before you get too excited, be warned there are a whole host of eye-opening requirements that need to be met as part of the application process.

The requirements are listed on the website of the Royal Thai Embassy in London and the information provided here is based on someone applying from the UK.

Firstly, property owners need to be able to provide documentation that shows they do indeed own a property, this could be in the form of a house registration book or proof of purchase documentation.

Next, (and this is the first of the eye-opening requirements) they need to be able to provide a copy of a bank statement that shows a balance of at least 3 million baht deposited into a Thai bank account.

They also need to show a bank statement from a UK or Irish bank account that has a balance of 500,000 baht for the past 6 months.

They then need to meet all the other requirements necessary for any non-Thai returning to Thailand currently such as:

  • Certificate of Entry
  • Declaration form
  • Quarantine booking
  • Fit to Fly Certificate
  • COVID-19 negative test result
  • Insurance policy which covers COVID-19 and up to 100,000 USD

 

Once all of the requirements have been met, the foreign property owner then needs to apply for a Non-B visa to enter Thailand.

While the addition of foreign property owners gives hope to some foreigners to be able to return to Thailand, it may do little to help what is arguably one the biggest groups of foreigners stranded outside the kingdom – expat retirees.

Earlier this week, Thaivisa heard from one expat who despite living in Thailand on a retirement extension for the last 9 years, is not able to return and remains stranded in the UK.

Since publishing the story, Thaivisa has been inundated from people in a similar position.

The full list of requirements for foreign property owners to enter Thailand can be found below:

 

For non-Thai who own property in Thailand

While Thailand still puts in place travel restrictions, foreigners who own property in Thailand can apply for a non-B visa and a Certificate of Entry to go to Thailand.

Required documents :

  • Your passport copy
  • Copy of property ownership document in Thailand, or proof of purchase of property and relevant documents
  • Copy of bank statements of a Thai bank account with deposit at least 3 million baht (approx. £77,000), or Thai government bonds at least 3 million baht
  • Copy of bank statement of a UK/Irish bank account with deposit at least 500,000 baht (approx. £12,800) for the past 6 months
  • Declaration form
  • A copy of flight confirmation
  • A copy of ASQ booking confirmation

What you need to present at the airline’s check-in counter and upon arrival in Thailand:

  • The Certificate of Entry
  • Declaration form
  • Fit to Fly health certificate, issued within 72 hours before departure – this is a statement by a doctor that you are free from symptoms and fit to fly (must be separate from COVID test)
  • The COVID-19 test result, with a laboratory output indicating that COVID -19 is not detected (COVID test must be by RT-PCR method), issued within 72 hours before departure
