LTR Visa

What is Long-Term Resident Visa (LTR Visa)

Thailand has launched the “Long-Term Resident (LTR)” visa, a program designed to offer a mix of tax and additional advantages to qualified foreigners. This initiative aims to boost Thailand’s position as a preferred destination for foreigners to stay and conduct business operations.

By launching this visa, the Thai government anticipates drawing new foreign experts, technologies, and skilled professionals, all of which can contribute to increased local investment and spending, thus enhancing economic growth. The goal is to welcome one million affluent and skilled foreign individuals to Thailand in the next five years.
