Indian travellers to Thailand can get a visa free of cost now, making it one more reason to visit the country if you were sitting on the fence. The government has made the single entry visa free for Indian citizens till 31 August, 2017. Visa on arrival is not free but the fee has been halved to 1000 Thai Baht for the same period.
Most people would prefer the visa on arrival as it’s convenient, but if you are travelling as a family even four visas means 4000 THB or 8000 rupees (1 THB = 2 INR approx.). If you save that, it could go a long way in Thailand. So make sure you apply for visas beforehand.
Here is the lowdown on all you need or want to know about Thai visas in general and for Indians in particular.
