The Main Benefits of Thailand Elite Residency Program

June 2, 2021

In 2020, with more than 1783 applicants, Thailand Elite Residency Program became 4th the most popular investment migration program. As many foreign Thailand residents were unable to re-enter the country to renew their expiring visas due to the global pandemic, The Thailand Elite Residence Program became a reasonable solution. To outline the main program benefits, Mann’s Solutions team prepared a detailed overview of program benefits.

Long-term and Multiple Entry Visa

One of the main program benefits is a long-term and multiple-entry residence visa which allows investors and investors’ families to reside in the country throughout the visa validity. Besides, there are no minimum stay requirements and investors can plan their schedule in the most convenient way.

Tax Regime

Thailand Elite Residence Visa holders are tax-exempt on their foreign-sourced income if investors don’t stay more than 183 days in Thailand annually as in this way they don’t become tax residents. On the other hand, if a person chooses to become a tax resident, the tax on their local and foreign-sourced income would be up to 35% and the VAT rate 7%.

VIP Services

The program provides many complimentary VIP services, such as government concierge services, airport transfers, and access to lounges. Additionally, visa holders will get access to benefits and discounts across Thailand.
