Thailand has introduced a special visa scheme for foreigners visiting the country for Muay Thai training, allowing them to extend their stay from 60 to 90 days.

 

The government set up the National Soft Power Strategy Committee to promote Thailand’s soft power, with Paetongtarn Shinawatra as Vice Chairman of the Board. The committee aims to promote soft power in 11 areas, including festivals, tourism, food, art, design, sports, music, books, films, dramas and series, fashion, and games. Traditional Thai boxing, or Muay Thai, is one of the targets.

 

Following the promotion, the Advisor to the Prime Minister, Pimon Sriwikorn, announced on January 12 that Thailand will have a special visa for foreigners who are interested in Muay Thai training.


Normally, foreigners who come to Thailand to train can stay for 60 days on a tourist visa but with this special visa, they can extend their stay to 90 days. However, Pimon has not yet revealed when the new special visa will be available.

Come again? A regular tourist visa that allows a stay of 60 days can already be extended by 30 days, for a total of 90 days. What's the benefit of that "special visa"?
