A few years back, the government of Thailand decided to release visas on arrival for the citizens of a few countries. The list includes 21 states, and Lithuania is one of them, which means that if you are a Lithuanian national, you can get a Thailand visa on arrival instead of going to an embassy. What is even better is that you can apply online for it. iVisa can help you with the entire process.
What is required of you?
You do not have to do much. In fact, your only job is to provide iVisa with some information about yourself and your trip. Here is a list of what you need:
Valid passport – getting a passport is not a problem for most travelers, and if you already own one, take a look at when it expires. The passport needs to maintain its validity for at least another 30 days from your date of arrival to Thailand.
Return flight ticket – the Thailand visa on arrival allows you to spend only 15 days inside the country, so you need to have a confirmed return flight ticket that proves your return within those 15 days.
Proof of accommodation – you need to have a hotel reservation or a signed letter from a host that states you have accommodation during your trip to Thailand.
Valid e-mail address – once you apply on iVisa, they will send you an application form that you need to fill in before your trip. You will receive the document above via e-mail, which is why you need to make sure that the address you provide is valid. Check the spelling as well.
Means of payment – by applying online, you must pay iVisa for its services. You can make the payment using a credit or a debit card. If you have a Paypal account, you can use that as well.
At your arrival in Thailand, you may also be asked to reveal the reason for your visit so that the immigration officers can ensure that the purpose of your visit will not exceed the allowed 15 days.
How to apply?
iVisa created a simple and elegant two-step application process, and if you need any assistance with it, the company also provides support 24/7.
The first stage will ask you to insert your personal information, as well as some info on your trip. You must also choose one of the three available processing times:
Standard processing – people who apply online often select this option because it is the least expensive. You will be charged $20, and your application takes just 1 business day to be processed.
Rush processing – this option shortens the previous processing time to only 2 hours. The cost, though, is a bit higher. This option costs $50.
Super Rush processing – this is the fastest option you can find. It costs $70, but your application is processed in as little as 15 minutes. It is ideal for people who want their visa fast.
The second stage consists of payment and revision. Be advised that any mistakes you may make are impossible to correct once your application is processed. Just look carefully at what you insert to avoid any errors.
The Thailand visa for Lithuanians allows a 15-day stay maximum, and it provides multiple entries. Also, keep in mind that you must also pay for the visa itself once you get to Thailand. It costs 2000 THB, and it can only be paid in Thai currency.
Note: you can apply online using iVisa only if you travel to Thailand by air and you land at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok.
