How to Get a Thailand visa on arrival by cruise

3 months


When traveling to Thailand on a cruise ship, do you need a visa on arrival? Actually, that’s a good question. Nationals from over 60 countries do not need a visa to visit Thailand. You will require your passport/travel document and means of travel. But some other nations need an e-Visa from Thailand upon arrival. The good aspect is that with click2visas, you can provide pre-registration documentation, which simplifies the process to obtain your VOA. But you definitely have other specific questions, so let’s answer your doubts and other questions about entering Thailand while on a cruise.
