Remote workers looking to stay longer in Thailand may want to explore special programmes and visa options that allow an extended stay and multiple benefits.
While Thailand does not yet have a dedicated digital nomad visa program, there are alternative visa types that remote workers can look at as options. These offer a balance between work and leisure, allowing for exploration of Thailand’s many destinations while staying focused on projects and career goals.
Digital nomads or remote workers employed by major international companies are eligible for the LTR visa. It is possible to work legally in Thailand for a duration of 10 years, with an option to extend it further. With this visa, spouse and children can be brought to Thailand.
Spouse and children under 20 years of age of an LTR visa holder also qualify (up to four dependants per visa holder).
