Thailand Visa for Citizens of Poland | Siam Legal International


Thailand Visa Application

Citizens of Poland

For citizens of Poland planning a journey to Thailand, grasping the visa requirements is crucial for a seamless travel experience. This guide details the process for securing a visa, emphasizing the advantages of short-stay exemptions and exploring options for longer visits. We will also discuss how Siam Legal can support you throughout the visa application journey, ensuring a smooth transition from start to finish.

Thailand Tourist Visa Exemption for Short Stays

Polish passport holders enjoy the privilege of a visa exemption for short tourism-related stays in Thailand. Here's what you need to understand:

  • Air Travel Exemption: Polish citizens arriving by air with proof of onward or return travel within 30 days qualify for a visa exemption.
  • Land and Sea Entry: Entering Thailand via land or sea from neighboring countries permits a 30-day stay, limited to 2 entries per calendar year.

For a hassle-free visit, Polish travelers should:

  • Ensure their passport is valid for at least 6 months beyond the entry date into Thailand and has at least two blank pages.
  • Show proof of planned departure within 30 days of arrival (or 60 days if seeking an extension).
  • Demonstrate evidence of confirmed accommodation and sufficient financial resources for the stay.

Thailand Tourist Visa for Extended Stays

Polish citizens wishing to extend their exploration of Thailand beyond the 30-day threshold must secure a tourist visa from a Thai Embassy or Consulate before their departure.

Bilateral Agreement Between Thailand and Poland

A bilateral agreement exists between Thailand and Poland, allowing Polish nationals with Diplomatic or Official passports to enter Thailand without a visa for periods not exceeding 90 days. This arrangement facilitates a broad spectrum of visits, from tourism to business and official duties, enhancing the diplomatic and official exchanges between the two nations. For stays beyond 90 days, Polish individuals must obtain an appropriate visa.

Additional Information:

  • Authority to Permit Entry: While Royal Thai Embassies issue visas, the final authority to permit entry lies with immigration officers at Thailand's entry points, under the Immigration Act B.E. 2522 (1979).
  • Siam Legal Services: Siam Legal offers a full range of services to ensure adherence to all Thai immigration regulations, facilitating a smooth entry into Thailand. Leveraging Siam Legal's expertise can significantly ease the visa application process, offering peace of mind and stress-free preparation for your visit to Thailand.
Siam Legal International offers services on the following types of visa to citizens of Poland:
90-day Non-Immigrant Visa

Polish citizens can apply for a 90-day Non-Immigrant Visa, suitable for those intending to engage in education (ED), business (B), visiting family (O), official duties (F), or religious activities (R) in Thailand. This single-entry visa permits a stay of up to 90 days and is particularly beneficial for those planning to apply for a work permit or open a bank account, supporting a productive stay in Thailand.

1-Year Non-Immigrant Visa

This type of visa is a multiple-entry permit valid for one year, with each entry allowing a stay of up to 90 days. It requires the visa holder to leave and re-enter Thailand every 90 days to obtain a new entry stamp. Ideal for education, business, family visits, official tasks, or religious activities, it offers the flexibility needed to apply for a work permit, open a bank account, and possibly extend the stay for up to one year on the same visa.

Thailand Business Visa

For Polish citizens looking to engage in business or commence employment in Thailand, the Non-Immigrant B Visa serves as the foundation for achieving professional goals. Initially provided as a 90-day single-entry visa, it caters to individuals starting a business or employment, potentially extending to a 1-year multiple-entry visa with a work permit, sponsored by a Thai company.

Thailand Marriage Visa

Polish citizens married to Thai nationals may opt for the Thailand Marriage Visa, facilitating a path to residency. Beginning with a 90-day stay, it can be extended to one year and is renewable annually. This visa enables Polish citizens to support their family and professional life within Thailand, providing stability for cross-national marriages.

Thailand Retirement Visa

Designed for Polish citizens aged 50 and above who wish to retire in Thailand, this visa option requires proof of financial stability. It allows an initial 90-day stay, extendable to one year, and is aimed at retirees not seeking employment. This visa offers a serene, long-term residency option, renewable annually.
