Thailand Elite Visa Platinum Membership for UK Citizens

Are you a UK citizen looking for an exclusive gateway to the Land of Smiles that blends luxury with convenience? The Thailand Elite Visa offers just that, serving your golden ticket to an extended, hassle-free stay in Thailand. Created by the Thailand Privilege Card Co., Ltd. (TPC), this program is designed to attract affluent tourists and investors from the United Kingdom, providing a plethora of benefits to facilitate a more enjoyable experience in Thailand. Whether you’re considering relocation, long-term vacation, or investment opportunities, the Thai Elite Visa Platinum Membership stands out as a premier choice.

What is a Thailand Privilege Platinum Membership?

Platinum membership is one tier of the Thailand Privilege program, and offers a unique combination of convenient Thai Elite Visa privileges and luxury services designed to make your stay in Thailand as seamless as possible. It’s a testament to Thailand’s hospitality, offering an easy and rewarding way for you to escape the British Isles and trade the cloudy skies of London for the sunny beaches of the Land of Smiles. 

Out of all the available options, Platinum membership is the second-most affordable package. It’s also the cheapest out of all the choices that enable you to include your family members as part of the membership plan. This is a good choice if you’re looking for a multiple-entry visa that will also permit your loved ones to enjoy all the unique perks offered with the membership. 

Key Features of the Thailand Elite Platinum Membership

  • Membership Validity: 10 years 
  • Membership Fee (primary applicant): 1.5 Million THB (approximately £32,620)
  • Membership Fee (additional members): 1 Million THB (approximately £21,760)
  • Privilege Points: 35 points per year

At the core of a Thailand Privilege Platinum Membership for UK Citizens are features designed to improve the living and travel experience in Thailand to unparalleled levels of comfort and convenience. This membership is ideal if you’re a UK national who’s seeking a long-term relationship with Thailand, whether for leisure, business, or both.

A standout component of this membership is the Thailand Elite Visa, which simplifies the complexities of long-term stays. This visa grants those from the United Kingdom the freedom to enter and exit Thailand with ease and does not have the strict eligibility requirements that other Thai long-term visas have.

The benefits you can enjoy through a Platinum membership include, but are not limited to:

  • A 5-year multiple-entry visa, allowing unlimited travel to and from Thailand, and renewable once up to a total of 10 years.
  • Access to the Premium Lane for fast-track immigration, and complimentary limousine transfers to and from select airports.
  • Personal assistance with visa extensions and other governmental procedures, providing peace of mind and convenience.
  • Annual health check-ups, access to golf courses, spas, and discounts at top-tier restaurants, hotels, and shopping centers.
  • Opportunities for networking with other members and invitations to private events, fostering a sense of community and belonging.

Additional Benefits and Upgrades

The Platinum membership goes beyond merely offering a blend of travel, lifestyle, and convenience benefits; it introduces a series of enhancements and new features not available with any other visa program. 

Brand New Additions:

  • Health and Wellness: You can now benefit from complimentary annual health check-ups and a 180-day personal accident insurance policy (once per membership period). 
  • New Privilege Points Feature: Redeem exclusive rewards and benefits to enhance your experience in Thailand via a special points redemption system. 
  • Greater Customization: Unlike the previous version, this new membership gives you more flexibility over customizing it to suit your needs.
  • Entertainment and Dining: Immerse yourself in Thailand’s vibrant entertainment scene with complimentary movie tickets, preferential booking for concert tickets, and exclusive dining deals. 
  • Exclusive Discounts: Enjoy substantial discounts at select high-end restaurants and shopping outlets.

Ease of Upgrade:

If you’re a UK national looking to elevate your experience further, upgrading from an existing Thailand Elite Visa membership to a Thailand Privilege Platinum membership is straightforward. This upgrade path is designed to be intuitive, granting access to an expanded array of privileges and services. Furthermore, you have the option to upgrade to even higher tiers of membership if desired, and you need only pay the difference in membership price.

You are also allowed to upgrade your membership to either the Diamond or the Reserve membership by paying an application fee of 100,000 THB (approximately £2,170). The additional membership fee you would need to pay also depends on which package you have chosen to upgrade to:

  • Upgrading to Diamond Membership: 1,000,000 THB (approximately £21,760)
  • Upgrading to Reserve Membership (via invitation only): 3,500,000 THB (approximately £76,100)

Family Friendly:

Platinum membership allows you to add family members from the United Kingdom to your package with simplicity, ensuring that your loved ones can share in the luxury, convenience, and comprehensive lifestyle upgrades that membership offers. All you have to do is submit additional applications for each added family member to your visa application and pay a reduced membership price to enjoy the richness of Thailand together. 

While additional family members will be able to enjoy the visa rights and member privileges granted to the primary holder, they will not receive their own allotment of privilege points to redeem and will need to share your pool of points.

Application Process

Applying for the Thailand Elite Visa Platinum Membership package is easier than applying for other Thai visas, but it can still present challenges. If you’re looking for the most straightforward application journey, it is highly recommended that you consult a government-approved General Sales and Services Agent (GSSA) such as Siam Legal International. 

A GSSA is contracted specifically by TPC to facilitate and guide your application journey. They will also review your application thoroughly before submission, reducing the chances that your application will either be delayed or rejected. 

Here’s a step-by-step guide to applying for the Platinum membership:

  • Gather Required Documents: Start by preparing the necessary documentation. This includes:
    • A Thailand Elite Platinum Membership application form for core members
    • A Thailand Elite Platinum Membership application form for additional members (if wanting to add family members to the membership)
    • A Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) form
    • A Membership Application Payment Form
    • A recent photocopy of your UK passport (in color)
    • A recent passport-size photo (in color, against a white background)
    • Supplementary documents (if adding family members or a previous/current holder of an ED Visa)
  • Submit Your Application: Forward all required documents to Siam Legal. You will also need to pay the 50,000 THB (approximately £1,090) application fee (this will be deducted from your final membership fee). Our team will review your application for completeness and accuracy, fixing any mistakes that might lead to delays or a rejection.
  • Background Check: Once we submit your application, it will be subject to a background check by Thai immigration authorities, ensuring compliance with Thailand’s immigration policies.
  • Approval and Payment: Following a successful background check, you will receive an approval letter and an invoice. The next step involves payment of the membership fee to TPC, marking your official entry into the Platinum membership program.
  • Welcome Kit: After your payment is processed, you’ll receive a welcome letter and membership ID. While obtaining a physical membership card is optional, it is available in case you prefer to have one or would like to make using privileges easier.
  • Visa Affixation: The final step is to have your Thailand Elite Visa placed into your passport, officially granting you the extensive privileges and benefits of the Platinum membership. You can complete this at immigration in Bangkok, a Thai airport upon arrival, or at the nearest Royal Thai Consulate or Thai Embassy in the UK, such as the Royal Thai Embassy in South Kensington, London. 

Timeline and Duration:

  • The entire application process typically takes 1 to 3 months.
  • Background checks are usually completed within 4 to 6 weeks, followed by payment confirmation within 1-2 weeks.
  • The welcome kit is dispatched and arrives within 5 to 10 working days after payment clearance.
