5 migration options to move to Thailand TODAY.

1) Retirement Visa

The retirement visa is one of the Most Popular and Cost Effective Ways to migrate to Thailand.

Hundreds and thousands of foreigners worked tirelessly their whole life only to realise their savings aren’t enough for them to live a comfortable life in their home country.

In Australia for example, you will need approximately $545,000 AUD in retirement savings in order to have a comfortable retirement, according to the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia’s Retirement Standard. This is one of the reason why foreigners are fleeing the country.


2) Business Visa

Business visa in Thailand is suitable for people who love the Thai lifestyle but are not planning on retiring yet. The holder of business visa will have work rights in Thailand, so they can either run their own business or get a job in Thailand.

3) Work Visa

Thailand work visa is usually for people who have been sponsored by a Thai company to work and live in Thailand. People who hold this visa usually doesn’t need to worry about applying for the visa themselves because it would have been taken care of by the sponsoring company.

However, you do need to be mindful that having a work visa doesn’t necessarily grant you the work rights in Thailand. The work permit is the legal document that actually grant you the right to work in Thailand.

4) Education Visa

Education visa is another popular one, where foreigners may want to spend a few years in Thailand to enjoy life and get to experience tropical living. Common courses are Thai language. This could be a good idea if you are considering moving to Thailand for good so you can communicate with the locals.

5) Thai Citizenship

Becoming a Thai citizen has its own benefits. In Thailand, foreigners are not allowed to 100% own their house, land or business. Foreigners who have a vision to build a business, live a very comfortable life with house and land usually goes with this option. Besides, being a Thai citizen will grant you free/close to free medical benefits. This is especially important as people are getting older.

However, unlike Australia or other western countries, Thailand is not an immigrant country, meaning that they do not have a set system to attract high volume immigrants. Thailand also put on a limit to restrict the number of citizenship application. Typically, they only allow certain numbers of application (i.e. 100 application per country per year).
