All travellers to Thailand must have a valid passport with one completely blank visa page and at least six month remaining validity. By law visitors must carry their passport at all times whilst in the country, however, in practice a photocopy will usually suffice.
Visitors from many countries including the US, Canada, most EU countries, Russia, Japan, Hong Kong, most ASEAN countries, and Australia do not need a visa. If arriving by air granting of a 30 day permit is usual, with a 15 day permit issued to visitors arriving by land. One exception to this is that visitors from Korea, Brazil and Peru are generally granted a 90 day permit. Proof of onward transit by way of a valid ticket is also a requirement - this is sometimes strictly applied or can be completely ignored. Also proof of adequate finances for the duration of stay in Thailand may be required (i.e., cash 10,000 Baht per person and 20,000 Baht per family). Again this may or may not be enforced, however it is best to ensure you do have the funds required.
Visitors from some countries will either be required to obtain a visa before arrival in Thailand or may be issued with a visa upon arrival. These visas allow visitors to remain in the country for a maximum of 15 days.
Travellers travelling from/through countries which have been declared Yellow Fever Infected Areas must acquire an International Health Certificate verifying the receipt of a Yellow Fever vaccination.
As entry requirements may change from time to time it is strongly advised that you check with the department of foreign affairs or your local consulate or embassy for the current requirements.
