Please contact your nearest Thai embassy. Please be careful, there are more and more false ALSQ institutions and false visa agencies being reported that only want your money but are not authorized to issue a visa or are not an official ALSQ hotel.

5.
A Fit to Fly Certificate & Medical Certificate for General Passengers https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/file/g_form/general02.pdf https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/file/guidelines/G23.pdf The Fit to Fly Medical Certificate must states that the applicant does not have covid-19 and these certificates must be issued at least 72 hours before the flight departure.

6.
Once arrived in Thailand, every STV visa holder must follow the public health and safety measure set by the Thai Ministry of Public Health. If the STV visa holder has been tested positive for covid-19 at the airport, the STV visa holder will immediately be sent to the approved hospital. If the STV visa holder has been tested negative for covid-19 at the airport, the STV visa holder will pass through immigration.

7.
STV visa holder will then go under the 15 day quarantine at his/her paid ASQ/ALSQ accommodation. If the STV visa holder is tested negative for covid-19 after the 15 day quarantine, the STV visa holder will be allowed to leave and go stay at his or her chosen accommodation

Application Service Fee and Payment Terms & Conditions:
- 10,000 THB excluding 7% VAT per applicant
- This includes the service fee and the applicant can access special promotion and packages from our partnered hotels, insurance providers and other businesses.
- This fee does not include the airplane ticket, 15 days ASQ/ALSQ quarantine accommodation nor accommodation after the 15 days quarantine, medical and travel Insurance.
- The applicant will also have to pay the 2,000 THB visa fee at the Embassy/Consulate
- This fee is non-refundable.
- Thailand Longstay Company is not the Department of Consular Affairs and the company is not liable for any decision made by the Department of Consular Affairs.

As this visa has just been approved recently. The government is currently working on the detailed requirements. However, we are now able to share the following requirements to you:

• When this longstay tourists program can officially begin, 1 - 3 chartered flights will be allowed to land in Thailand per week with an estimation to bring in 1,200 longstay tourists per month.

• Every longstay tourist must quarantined at a government approved ASQ or ALSQ hotel accommodation for 15 days. There is no exception.
• Each Longstay tourist will be granted a Special Tourist Visa which will allow him or her to stay in Thailand for 90 days including the 15 days quarantine procedure.

• This Special Tourist Visa can be extended 2 times each time as a 90 day extension. Therefore, the maximum total stay is 270 days. Each renewal costs 2,000 THB.

• Proof of Payment and Booking Confirmations of ASQ/ALSQ quarantine accommodation and accommodation after 15 days quarantine are required. Payment and Booking Confirmation of accommodation after 15 days quarantine are not needed if the tourist shows proof of a property ownership in Thailand or has a close relative who has a property in Thailand. Proof of Rental Agreement can also be used.


We still need to wait for the official government ordinance to be officially released to be able to start the visa application process. Furthermore, we are also still waiting for Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration to set the policy on passengers from which countries will be allowed to come to Thailand as a long stay tourist. This is important so we will know if we will be able to provide the service to you or not and we will need to wait for this.

As mentioned in the application procedure, it would be great if we could have the the photo of the passport that the applicant will use for entry into Thailand, Current Location/Residence (City & Country), Nearest Thai Embassy/Consulate to the Applicant. These informations would be helpful to help plan.

We look forward to hear from you soon.

Yours Sincerely,
