Thailand Elite Card: Elite Easy Access Membership

Transcript of the above video:

In this video today as the title suggests, we are going to be discussing the Thailand Elite Card specifically one sort of subcategory of the Thailand Elite program.  The Elite Easy Access membership.

As a sort of preface to this video, there are multiple categories of Elite status that now exist under the Thailand immigration apparatus specific to the Elite Program. There are other videos on this channel which discuss each of those subcategories in a little more depth. For more information we recommend contacting either “Thailand Elite” or you can contact professionals such as ourselves; we oftentimes assist people in getting into the Elite program. A couple of things. I am reading here from the Thailand Elite website which is thailandelite.org , but a few things with respect specifically, some information with respect to the specifics of the Elite Easy Access membership. Basically, the membership validity is five years; the membership fee is 500,000 baht, VAT included. Membership upgrade with an additional 1.5 million Thai Baht, excluding VAT, one can upgrade to a full member ship. It is nontransferable and nonrefundable. With respect to some of the specific benefits to be gained under this sub category. Renewable five-year multi entry visa with extendable one year  length of stay for each entry:  arrival and departure VIP greeting and escort on arrival by Elite personal assistance: expedited immigration and passport processing: exclusive arrival and departure lounges: complementary round trip limousine transfer from airport to residence or hotel within Bangkok, Chang Mai, Phuket or Samui; that’s on international flights. You also get government concierges and facilitation immigration service,  90 day report, expedite and assist in the processing of a driver’s license, assist in opening bank accounts, business networking  etc. special discounts at King power duty-free branches, dining establishments, leading department stores, shopping malls etc. and the folks over there can assist people in their various given mother tongues. The Elite card can be a very significant benefit for many folks wishing to come to Thailand who just like to stay long term but don’t really fit into any other, any specific visa categories in Thailand, specifically think visa categories like the Business Visa the “O” visa, the education visa the retirement visa. For folks with the resources to go ahead and get into this program, it can be a significant benefit. Again this specific category, or I should say subcategory, is only going to grant five-year status in the program, and therefore five years a visa validity in Elite visa status, but it is convertible into a full Elite visa status upon the providence of 1.5 million Baht plus VAT.
