As India’s restrictions on international flights lift, the national carrier for Thailand, Thai Airways, is ready to resume operations between the two countries. A popular destination for Indian travellers, VFS Global, expects a surge in demand for its eVisa on Arrival service for Thailand.

“Starting of Thailand eVOA services through VFS Global will provide great convenience to customers travelling to Thailand. Thai Airways will be operating 35 flights a week between India and Thailand during Summer 2022. We sincerely hope 2022 offers tremendous travel opportunities for customers,” said Sunil Kumar, Sales Manager – North India, Thai Airways.

India is one among nine countries whose nationals are eligible for Thailand eVOA services, along with Bhutan, Bulgaria, China, Cyprus, India, Malta, Romania, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan.

VFS Global commenced Thai eVOA services in February 2019, providing travellers from 21 countries online pre-departure travel authorisation within 24 to 72 hours of their application being submitted. Additionally, an ‘Express eVisa On Arrival’ service was introduced, enabling approval within 24 hours. Customers availing of the EVOA service enjoy a faster immigration process at the dedicated Immigration counters at major airports in Thailand.
